Home or draw (1Х)
WIN 1.71

The twenty-ninth matchday of the German Bundesliga will open up with a single Friday game. Nurnberg welcome Schalke 04 at their Max-Morlock-Stadion. Will the hosts earn some points tonight?

Nurnberg

Nurnberg became the runners-up of the 2.Bundesliga and got the promotion to the main German tournament. Nowadays the newcomer risk to be relegated back. The hosts created the duo of the outsiders along with the last Hannover. They have 17 points and a three-point gap over the 96ers.

Totally, Boris Schommers’ guys have three wins, eight draws and 17 losses, 23 goals for and 53 goals against. Thus, their offensive line is the poorest among 18 clubs.

Actually Der Club is unbeaten with four points out of six possible. Recently the home side won over Augsburg 3:0 and played with a draw against Stuttgart 1:1 at Mercedes-Benz-Arena. There Matheus Pereira from Nurnberg got to the rebound in the goalmouth and planted a header home, 0:1. Then Ozan Kabak from VfB Stuttgart pounced on a loose ball inside the penalty area and beat the goalkeeper with a shot into the bottom right corner. He made it 1:1.

Schalke

Schalke are still reigning runners-up. The 04ers possess the fourteenth place and risk to participate in the relegation play-offs against the third team of the 2.Bundesliga.

Huub Stevens was appointed as the head coach some week ago. Last round his guys lost for the sixteenth time in the current season. They have been beaten by Eintracht, 1:2. The Eagles have scored the decisive goal just from the penalty spot in the end of the stoppage time.

Commonly, the Blues earned 26 points after seven wins and five draws with 29 goals for and 46 goals against.
