Regensburg face off with visiting opponents Nuremberg at Jahnstadion Regensburg in this Bundesliga 2 tie on Sunday.
Scroll down for all of our predictions, poll and stats for the Regensburg v Nuremberg game - as well as up-to-date odds.
Regensburg won’t want a repeat of their last result here following the 2-0 Bundesliga 2 loss in their previous game against St. Pauli.
In that game, Regensburg managed 43% possession and 9 attempts on goal with 4 on target. FC St. Pauli had 23 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. Guido Burgstaller (74', 89') scored for St. Pauli.
An interesting aspect of more recent Regensburg games is the number of nil scores.
From their prior sextet of matches before this one, in as many as 5 of them a bet on BTTS would've lost. We will see if that trend can be sustained in this game.
Pre-game facts show that Regensburg:
- haven't lost in the league to Nuremberg in their previous 5 matches.
- have not been beaten in their last 4 league matches at home.
Nuremberg come into this meeting after a 2-1 Bundesliga 2 win as they beat Karlsruhe in their previous game.
In that match, Nuremberg had 41% possession and 13 attempts on goal with 5 on target. For Nuremberg, the goals were scored by Lino Tempelmann (50') and Erik Shuranov (74'). Karlsruher SC had 15 shots at goal with 5 of them on target. Malik Batmaz (82') was the scorer for Karlsruhe.
A sequence of resolute showings by the Nuremberg defence has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 3 from their last 6 clashes combined. Over that same period of time, their own attack force has managed to score 7.
A look at their previous results shows us that Nuremberg:
- haven't beaten Regensburg in away games against them for the last 2 league matches.
- have not lost to Regensburg in games played away from home for the previous 3 matches in the league.
- are without a win away from home in their last 2 matches in the league.
Head to head
Looking at the statistics for their head to head meetings going back to 06/08/2017, there is nothing to separate the two clubs with Regensburg winning 1 of those games, Nuremberg 1 and 4 being draws after 90 minutes of play.
14 goals were produced between them during those clashes, with 7 of them for Regensburg and 7 netted by Nürnberg. That’s an average goals per game of 2.33.

The match was refereed by Sven Waschitzki.
Team News: Regensburg
Regarding absentees, there’s just one fitness concern for the Regensburg boss Mersad Selimbegović to be concerned about thanks to an almost full-strength squad. Aygün Yildirim (Fractured Foot) is sidelined.
Team News: Nuremberg
Nuremberg boss Robert Klauß has some current player fitness concerns. Noel Knothe (Ankle Injury), Florian Hübner (Shoulder Injury) and Pascal Köpke (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) miss out here.
We envisage that Nuremberg and Regensburg could both well score here although it’s hard to see a clear-cut winner.
It’s looking like it could well end up as a draw. That’s why our selection here is for a very even match with a score draw when the referee blows the full-time whistle.
