Taking a look at their past results, Nuremberg:
- haven't lost in the league to Hansa Rostock in their last 6 matches.
- are undefeated in their last 9 league matches at home. It's been impressive.
Hansa Rostock will go into this clash following a 2-1 Bundesliga 2 win over Darmstadt in their previous game.
In that game, Hansa Rostock managed 45% possession and 14 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. For Hansa Rostock, the scorers were John Verhoek (19') and Lukas Fröde (86'). At the other end, SV Darmstadt 98 got 12 shots at goal with 4 of them on target. Tobias Kempe (66') was the scorer for Darmstadt.
Demonstrating their predisposition for eventful encounters, goals have been seen as many as 20 times in the previous 6 games in which Hansa Rostock have played, giving a mean average of 3.33 goals each clash. Opposition teams have got 10 of those goals. That sort of trend isn’t assured to follow through into this next game, of course.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Hansa Rostock:
- have not won against Nuremberg in away games against them for the last 3 league games.
- are without an away win for the past 2 matches in the league.

Team News: Nuremberg
Florian Hübner (Shoulder Injury) and Pascal Köpke (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing for Nuremberg boss Robert Klauß.
Team News: Hansa Rostock
Hansa Rostock manager Jens Härtel has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Tobias Schwede (Calf Injury) and Maurice Litka (Fitness) are not able to play.
Our assessment here is that Hansa Rostock will have to work hard as a team to break down this Nuremberg team who we think should end up scoring and staying ahead.
We therefore see a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 1-0 victory for Nuremberg at the end of the 90.
Will be interesting to see how this one goes.
