The Bundesliga 2 fixture at Max-Morlock-Stadion on Saturday sees home side Nuremberg go up against opponents Hamburg.
Our Nuremberg v Hamburg tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below (including the best match odds).
Nuremberg will be looking for an improved result here after a 2-0 Bundesliga 2 defeat last time out to Heidenheim.
Denis Thomalla (45') and Patrick Mainka (75') scored for Heidenheim.
Robert Klauß's Nuremberg have hit the back of the net a sum total of 7 times in their prior half-dozen outings. The tally of goals that have been scored against them in that same time is 7.
Analysis of their past results shows that Nuremberg:
- have not registered a win against Hamburg in their previous 5 league matches.
- are undefeated in their last 2 home league matches.
Hamburg will go into the clash following on from a 3-1 Bundesliga 2 win over Regensburg in their last match.
For Hamburg, the scorers were David Kinsombi (21'), Simon Terodde (39') and Bakery Jatta (61'). Max Besuschkow (33') was the scorer for Regensburg.
The stats don’t lie, and Hamburg have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, conceding 7 goals in all. In defence, Hamburg seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly.
Analysis of their past results shows that Hamburg:
- remain undefeated by Nuremberg when they've played them away from home in the last 4 league matches. Away fans have certainly had plenty to cheer about.
- are undefeated in their last 2 league matches away from home.
Head to head
An examination of past results between these clubs going back to 20/01/2013 shows that these fixtures have not been kind to Nuremberg. They have not been able to get themselves any victories whatsoever while Hamburg have been the better of the two, running out winners in 83% of those matches played.
A sum of 20 goals were yielded between them in these games, with 3 of them for Nürnberg and 17 being from Hamburg. That is an average goals per game value of 3.33.
The last league encounter between these clubs was Bundesliga 2 match day 19 on 30/01/2020 when it finished Hamburg 4-1 Nuremberg.
The referee was Markus Schmidt.
Team News: Nuremberg
Regarding absentees, there’s just the lone fitness concern for the Nuremberg gaffer Robert Klauß to be concerned with from a near full-strength squad. Pascal Köpke (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t play.
Team News: Hamburg
Hamburg boss Daniel Thioune has multiple availability issues to deal with. Amadou Onana (Adductor problems), Jan Gyamerah (Ankle Injury), Rick van Drongelen (Fitness), Lukas Hinterseer (Cold) and Klaus Gjasula (Medial Collateral Ligament Knee Injury) are not able to play.
Our assessment here is that Nuremberg might have a difficult job to hit the back of the net against this Hamburg outfit who we reckon should be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
We’ve gone for a hard-fought 0-1 win for Hamburg at full-time.
Will be interesting to see how this one goes.
