Our Nuremberg v Paderborn tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below - plus the latest match odds.
Nuremberg prepare for this game following on from a 2-2 Bundesliga 2 draw vs Greuther Furth.
In that game, Nuremberg had 39% possession and 21 shots on goal with 9 on target. For Nuremberg, goals were scored by Enrico Valentini (57') and Erik Shuranov (76'). For their opponents, SpVgg Greuther Fürth had 10 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. Håvard Nielsen (8') and Dickson Abiama (93') scored for Greuther Furth.
Over their preceding six fixtures, Robert Klauß's Nuremberg have celebrated scoring a total of 6 times, with that being an average number of goals scored per match equal to 1.
Their previous form shows that Nuremberg:
- are unbeaten in their previous 2 league matches at home.
- haven’t won at home in the past 6 league matches. Their supporters are understandably frustrated.
SC Paderborn 07
In their last game, Paderborn drew 2-2 in the Bundesliga 2 match with Karlsruhe.
In that match, SC Paderborn 07 had 50% possession and 11 shots on goal with 5 on target. For SC Paderborn 07, the scorers were Dennis Srbeny (53') and Chris Führich (69'). Karlsruher SC had 19 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. Philipp Hofmann (2') and Babacar Guèye (92') scored for Karlsruhe.
The numbers tell their own story, and Paderborn have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 9 goals in total. Defensively, Paderborn have not been doing too well. Regardless, we must now wait to see whether such a trend shall be maintained here in this game.

Team News: Nuremberg
Robin Hack (Torn ankle ligament), Felix Lohkemper (Ankle fracture), Noel Knothe (Ankle Injury) and Pascal Köpke (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be available for Nürnberg gaffer Robert Klauß.
Team News: Paderborn
Thanks to a mainly full-strength group of players, there is just the one fitness problem for the Paderborn boss Steffen Baumgart to be concerned about. Nicolas Bürgy (Cervical spine injury) won’t be in action. The players ineligible for this match because of suspension are Jamilu Collins and Ron Schallenberg.
We feel that Paderborn and Nuremberg could end up without much reward for their efforts here.
A scoreless draw looks like a real possibility, but we’ll see what happens. We’re therefore predicting a hard-fought 0-0 draw at the end of the match.
