Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Eintracht-Stadion will host Saturday’s 2. Bundesliga game between Eintracht Braunschweig and Nurnberg, the two bottom-table sides. Die Lowen aim to put an end to their three-game winless run and a triumph over Nurnberg could see them escape the relegation zone. All Kaan Caliskaner, Danilo Webe, and Rayan Philippe are major doubts, while both Luc Ihorst and Sidi Sane remain on the sidelines through injuries.
The Bavarians, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating Wehen, losing to Kaiserslautern, while sharing the spoils with Greuther Furth. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Eintracht Braunschweig are desperate to move away from the bottom three. Both Daichi Hayashi and Christopher Schindler are injured for the visiting team. In their last encounter at the venue Braunschweig defeated Nurnberg 4-2 and we predict that history is going to repeat itself.
Highlighted Team (Nurnberg):
