Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
There will be fireworks when Nurnberg and Schalke go head to head at Max-Morlock-Stadion in what is expected to be a close 2. Bundesliga encounter. The Bavarians aim to build on back-to-back wins over Hertha Berlin and Holstein Kiel and we are positive that they will adopt yet another attack-minded approach against die Knappen. Ivan Marquez misses out through suspension, while all Ahmet Gurleyen, Johannes Geis, James Lawrence, and Joseph Hungbo are out of contention with injuries.
Schalke 04, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 3-0 loss to Karlsruher, with the team beating Hannover 3-2 at home ground, but seeing that Nurnberg are tough to beat at home, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Experienced forward Simon Terodde remains in the recovery room, alongside Cedric Brunner, Marius Muller, Ibrahim Maza, and Leo Greiml.
Highlighted Team (Schalke):
Schalke 04 are a professional football club founded in 1904. Die Knappen (The Miners) compete in German Bundesliga and they have won seven domestic titles. Schalke have clinched five German Cup trophies as well, while lifting the UEFA Cup title in 1997. The German club defeated Italian side Inter on penalties in the title game and that was the last time the final of the competition was played in a two-legged format.
Schalke 04 play their home matches at Veltins-Arena, the stadium that has been the home of the team since 2001. The capacity of Veltins-Arena is 62,271. It is well known that Borussia Dortmund are Schalke’s main rivals and the Ruhy neighbours face each other in the Revierderby.
The likes of Klaus Fichtel (477), Norbert Nigbur (355), Rolf Russmann (304), Klaus Fischer (295), Olaf Thon (295) and Herbert Lutkebohmert (286) are the players with most appearances for die Knappen. The colour of Schalke’s home kit is blue.
