Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Following a hard-fought 2-1 win over Osnabruck, Nurnberg will look to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they take on Wehen on Matchday 4. The Bavarians have regained a much-needed confidence and, as a result, the odds for home win have been dropping. Keep in mind, though, that Nurnberg’s injury list is pretty long, including the likes of Uzun, Lawrence, Hungbo, Flick, and Schindler, to name just a few.
Wehen, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Hertha and Karlsruher. The visitors have been impressive at the back of late, but preventing Nurnberg from scoring at Max-Morlock-Stadion is easier said than done. Anyhow, yet another low-scoring affair is on the cards as Wehen are likely to stick to their defensive style of play. The likes of Bennetts, Iredale, Brdar, Batzner, Lyska, and Taffershofer are sidelined with injuries for the away team.
