Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Max-Morlock-Stadion will host Sunday’s football match between Nurnberg and Magdeburg. The Bavarians aim to put an end to their three-game winless run and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Magdeburg. Midfielder Jannik Hofmann is a major doubt and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off, while defender Christopher Schindler has yet to overcome an ACL injury. Der Blau, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating Hertha, losing to Schalke, while sharing the spoils with Paderborn.
Magdeburg are more of a team than Nurnberg, but beating the Bavarians on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. All Jean Hugonet, Mo El Hankouri, and Daniel Elfadli are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the visiting team ahead of the trip to Bavaria.
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.
