An opportunity to qualify for the Champions League is at stake in Borussia Monchengladbach’s match against the struggling Nurnberg.
The last spot for the Champions League qualifier is currently up for grabs. This was after Bayer Leverkusen was forced to a draw against Braunschweig. Bayer is currently holding on to a 3-point lead. But since anything is possible in football, it only takes a single win to overcome such lead or equalize.

 

Die Fohlen is one of the toughest contenders for the coveted spot. They trail Wolfsburg by 2 points and is behind Bayer by 3 points. Should they win against Nurnberg, they will get the opportunity to tie with Sami Hyypia’s side and hopefully, keep the 4th spot for good.

 

However, the biggest question that Die Fohlen has to address is whether Nurnberg will allow them to easily secure the much needed 3 points.

 

Nurnberg struggles near the relegation zone. Obviously, it will do anything in order to veer away from the danger area and one of the first steps they can take is to win against their upcoming opponent.

 

Nurnberg elicits the possibility of giving Die Fohlen a hard time. The two has an equal number of wins and losses during their last 6 encounters. Unfortunately, Nurnberg’s current team form, barely signifies a determined club. It has lost 5 of its last 6 matches and conceded an average of 2 goals. Therefore, this might lower its winning chances and perhaps, the best that it can pull off is a draw.

 

Prediction: Borussia Monchengladbach

Borussia Monchengladbach definitely gets the upper hand against Nurnberg. It is valued to win at 1.86 while sharing a 0-0.5 handicap in the sports betting site, 12BET.
