Match Date: 29 March 2014 (local time)

Venue: Mage Solar Stadion


SC Freiburg and Nurnberg manifest a story of opposites.


Nurnberg ended its losing streak, whilst Freiburg halted its winning spell. Tied with 26 points, the two are clamoring for a victory. Both are in a desperate state to veer away from the relegation zone. Thus, it is hard to expect a swift and easy match in this encounter.


Der Club received the confidence boost that they badly need in the stunning victory against Stuttgart. Not only did they received additional points, but also catapulted their rank in the table. Yet, as mentioned, it was not all that rosy for Nurnberg. It has to endure 4 consecutive losses under the hands of Borussia Dortmund, Werder Bremen, Hamburger SV and Eintracht Frankfurt. But currently, it sits comfortably on the 14th spot of the table.


Freiburg however, was a little bit (unlucky). After thrashing Frankfurt and Werder Bremen, it was forced to settle for a draw, which made them slip in the rock bottom part of the table. The additional point barely generated a positive result and instead, moved them closer to the relegation zone.


Nevertheless, Freiburg can gain advantage via capitalizing on their 9 undefeated matches against Nurnberg. But with the latter’s renewed confidence, things will not be easy for Freiburg. As a matter of fact, the most plausible result that this encounter can generate is a stalemate for both readily fit as the online bettingw favorite.


Prediction: Stalemate
