Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
After eliminating Fortuna Dusseldorf in the DFB Pokal last 16, Nurnberg will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Regensburg in the 2. Bundesliga round 20. Nurnberg were beaten by both St. Pauli and Greuther Furth in the previous two league fixtures, but a win over Regensburg should see them escape the relegation zone. Lino Tempelmann is banned for the match, while all Danny Blum, Jannes-Killan Horn, James Lawrence, Erik Wekesser, Christian Mathenia, and Tim Handwerker are out of contention with injuries.
Regensburg, on the other hand, are on a three-game losing run in the German second tier, meaning that Nurnberg will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Speaking of the visiting side, Scott Kennedy serves the last of his two-game ban, while all Idrizi, Schonfelder, Saller, and Owusu should miss out with injuries.
