Wolfsburg vs Nurnberg
Date: Saturday, 4 May 2019
Kick-Off 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: VOLKSWAGEN ARENA (Wolfsburg).
Wolfsburg will have a fantastic opportunity to back up a magnificent 1-4 victory over Hoffenheim as they play host to penultimate-placed Nurnberg on Saturday at VOLKSWAGEN ARENA. The Wolves thus picked up four points from two super tough fixtures against Eintarcht Frankfurt and Hoffenheim and they come into this weekend’s fixture in the highest of spirits.
Bruno Labbadia’s men thus joined the battle for the top-four finish and a place in the next term of Champions League given they are now just five points shy of the Eagles in fourth place. Wolfsburg are looking ahead of three easy fixtures to finish the season with, meaning they do have realistic chances of catching the fourth spot with some help from the rest of the league obviously.
Wolfsburg vs Nurnberg: Head-to-head
Interestingly, it’s Nurnberg who leaf the head to head tie by one win coming into 31st clash with the Wolves.
However, Wolfsburg won each of past three head to head encounters with Der Club.
Wolves’ winning streak includes a 0-2 victory in this term of Bundesliga back from mid-December last year at Max-Morlock-Stadion.
Wolfsburg vs Nurnberg: Prediction
Nurnberg are winless in last four games, but they drew three in the process. Der Club held mighty Bayern Munich to a 1-1 draw last weekend and even missed a penalty in dying minutes of the affair at Max-Morlock-Stadion.
The team led by Boris Schommers are now five points shy of Stuttgart in the position which leads to relegation play-offs. They have two super tough games against Champions League hopefuls Wolfsburg and Borussia Monchengladbach on schedule in next two rounds and saving the top flight status will be an extremely tough task for Nurnberg looking from this perspective.
Der Club are weakest travellers in the entire league with the record of 0 wins, 3 draws and 12 losses in 15 Bundesliga matches on the road this season. Nurnberg have a dreadful 9-39 goal difference in the process and we just can’t imagine them stopping a team which bagged four goals past the likes of Hoffenheim last Saturday.
