Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
All eyes will be on Max-Morlock-Stadion when Nurnberg and Regensburg face each other on day 18 of the new 2. Bundesliga campaign. Nurnberg aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to the likes of Bochum (1-3) and Hannover (2-5), and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Regensburg. The Bavarians are eyeing their first win of the year, and they are surely capable of beating Die Rothosen at home ground.
Regensburg, on the other hand, are tough to beat at home, but given their poor away record in the German second tier, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the home team. Die Rothosen have already suffered four defeats on the road this term, with Nurnberg eyeing their fourth home win of the process. A man to watch in the home side will be experienced attacker Manuel Schaffer.
Highlighted Player (Hanno Behrens):
Hanno Behrens is a German footballer who was born in Elmshorn (West Germany) on March 26, 1990. Behrens played for the likes of FC Elmshorn 1920 and Hamburger SV before making his senior debut with Hamburger SV II in 2008. After scoring seven goals in 79 appearances for die Rothosen, Behrens joined SV Darmstadt 98 in 2012.
The defensive midfielder was part of Darmstadt from 2012 to 2015, when he signed a contract with 1. FC Nurnberg. The German footballer has been playing for der Ruhmreiche ever since and it is important to note that he scored 15 goals in 36 appearances for the club in 2. Bundesliga in the 2017/2018 season. Hanno Behrens did well to score for Nurnberg in a 2-0 win over Sandhausen on May 6, 2018, which helped the Bavarian side clinch promotion to the German top flight.
However, despite establishing himself as one of 1. FC Nurnberg key players, Hanno Behrens has yet to make his debut for Germany national team.
