Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Nurnberg play host to Eintracht Braunschweig at their Max-Morlock-Stadion in the 2. Bundesliga round 24. The Bavarians continue with their old habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels, with the team eyeing their third consecutive win in Bavaria. Keep in mind, though, that Nurnberg’s injury list is pretty long, including the likes of Valentini, Schleimer, Blum, Horn, Lawrence, Wekesser, Mathenia, and Handwerker. Both Pascal Kopke and Benjamin Goller are major doubts through illness.
Die Lowen, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, and seeing that they collected only one point in total from the last three league matches, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from Friday’s clash. Jan-Hendrik Marx misses out through suspension, while all Decarli, Wiebe, Wintzheimer, Henning, Ihorst, Benkovic, Behrendt, and Strompf miss out through injuries for the away team.
