Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Sparkles will be flying when Nurnberg and Kaiserslautern, the two old rivals, go head to head at Max-Morlock-Stadion in what is expected to be a close encounter. The Bavarians aim to put an end to their three-game winless run, but Sunday’s clash will be anything but a walk in the park for the home side. Ivan Marquez is banned for the match and given the number of injury problems in the home team, we are not tempted to put our money on Cristian Fiel’s troops.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, failed to impress in back-to-back defeats to Elversberg and Paderborn and, taking everything into account, the share of spoils is on the cards at Max-Morlock-Stadion. Both Almamy Toure and Ben Zolinski are sidelined through illness, while all Frank Ronstadt, Philipp Hercher, and Hendrick Zuck miss out with injuries for the visiting side.
Highlighted Team (Nurnberg):
FC Nurnberg are a German club which was founded back in May, 1900. Der Ruhmreiche play their home games at Max-Morlock-Stadion, which was both built and opened in 1928. The stadium can hold up to 50,000 spectators, but it has to be noted that the capacity of the venue is 44,308 for international matches.
Nurnberg were the dominant force in German football in 1920s, with the team clinching five trophies during that period (1919/1920, 1920/1921, 1923/1924, 1924/1925, 1926/1927).
The Ruhmreiche won the national championships in 1936, 1948, 1960 and 1968 as well, with the team finishing the season as runners-up on three occasions (1934, 1937, 1962). Speaking of the club’s recent history, Nurnberg did well to win the German Cup in 2007, with the team beating Stuttgart in the title game. Speaking of the club’s European success, it has to be noted that the Bavarians played in the European Cup quarter-finals in 1962. Schalke are considered one of the club’s main rivals.
