Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Nurnberg and Dusseldorf take on each other at Max-Morlock-Stadion in the 2. Bundesliga round 29. Nurnberg are eager to escape the danger zone, but their current form is not giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of upcoming challenges. Considering that the Bavarians failed to win the previous four league matches, home win should not be considered. Midfielder Jens Castrop misses out through suspension, while all Jan Gyamerah, Florian Hubner, Erik Wekesser, and Christian Mathenia are sidelined with injuries.
The visitors, on the other hand, did well to beat league leaders Darmstadt at the weekend, with the team keeping their promotion hopes alive. Dusseldorf are more of a team than Nurnberg, and we predict that they are going to prove their worth on the field. Midfielder Ao Tanaka is rated doubtful, while Jorrit Hendrix has yet to recover from a broken collarbone.
