Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
All eyes will be on Max-Morlock-Stadion when Nurnberg and Hannover square off against each other in the 2. Bundesliga round 17. Nurnberg aim to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Bochum, with the team eyeing their first win of the year. Der Ruhmreiche produce much better displays at home than on the travels, and we are positive that they will grab something from the match.
Die Roten, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 3-2 loss to St. Pauli at the weekend, with the team dropping to 8th position in the standings. A man to watch in the away team will be Genki Haraguchi, who scored a brace at the weekend. Midfielder Jaka Bijol, on the other hand, will have to serve his ban against Nurnberg as he was sent off in the defeat to St. Pauli. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards, and we are tempted to put our money on draw.
