Nurnberg vs Bochum – 2.Bundesliga.
Grundig Stadion, Nurnberg – 15 February, 19:15.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
Derby match of Bundesliga Week 21 is scheduled for Monday when Nurnberg will host Bochum on their Grunding Stadium. Both teams are in very hot streak of results, especially hosts and I wouldn’t be surprised to see both of these teams in top3 placements this season. Nurnberg are slight favorites in this match with 6/5 odds, probably because of unbelievable streak of 6 straight victories. Bochum are undefeated for last 45 days as well and I don’t think 21/10 rate for their victory should be that high. Also Nurnberg will probably be chasing revenge for defeat suffered against Bochum in August 2015. They were defeated 2 – 1 even though they had an early lead through G.Burgstaller.
Nurnberg are currently sitting on 3rd position on Bundesliga 2 table, only two points behind 2nd placed Freiburg and direct promotion to Bundesliga. Last weekend they had one really tough match against Munchen 1860. Despite the fact of their opponents being one of the worst teams in the league this season, Nurnberg had a lot of troubles to break their defensive bunker. The only goal in that match was scored by P.Erras in the first half.
Bochum fans had the honor to watch one of the best teams in the world at the moment Bayern Munchen on their home ground this Wednesday in Cup match. Bochum were defeated 3 – 0 quite easily but I really doubt any of their fans left the stadium sad. It is being a while since Bochum were standard members of Bundesliga, so they will probably do everything in their power to reach at least 3rd position. Their last Bundesliga 2 match against Freiburg clearly shown that they are capable of playing against the best teams in second division. They have won that game easily 2 – 0.
