Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Following a 3-0 loss to Hannover, Nurnberg will be looking to escape the danger zone when they take on Kaiserslautern on Matchday 39. The Bavarians have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team producing much better showings at home than on the travels. Keep in mind that Nurnberg’s injury list is pretty long, including the likes of Reichert, Duman, Nurnberger, Gyamerah, Hubner, Wekesser, and Mathenia.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, sit in 7th place in the standings with slim playoffs chances. Since Nurnberg want this triumph more than Kaiserslautern, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match. All Kenny Prince Redondo, Nicolas De Preville, and Aaron Basenach are out of contention through injuries, speaking of the visiting side. You should know that the Bavarians defeated the Red Devils in each of their last five encounters at Max-Morlock-Stadion.
