Venue: EasyCredit-Stadion

 

Nurnberg will be playing for pride’s sake when it meets Hannover 96. With only 2 matches left, including the one against Hannover, the club will have to surrender its Bundesliga status.

 

Nurnberg requires at least 7 points to at least make it to safety. Unfortunately, considering the time limitations they confront and with their last match pitted against Schalke 04, it is quite impossible for them to recover.

 

Likewise, Der Club does not have a superb form that will warrant their safety. The squad has been unsuccessful in 5 of its last 6 matches and conceded an average of 2 goals during its last 9 encounters.

 

On the other hand, the upcoming clash is a total giveaway to Hannover 96. Already safe from relegation, it can take use the match as an opportunity to score more points and climb a notch higher in the table.
Hannover has also conceded at least 2 goals in its last 3 away matches and its overall form also fails to impress. Yet, compared to what Nurnberg has, the match’s online betting favorite has 2 victories and a draw to brag about.

 

Die Roten’s winning possibility is further supported by the fact that Nurnberg has never won in their last 6 previous meetings. The best that outcome that Der Club has produced during those clashes were draws.

 

Prediction: Hannover 96

Hannover 96 is pegged to win at a profitable value of 3.23.
