Team News: Nuremberg
Christopher Schindler (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Can Uzun (Unknown Injury) won’t be playing for Nuremberg manager Cristian Fiél. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Ahmet Gürleyen and Christian Mathenia.
In our view, Nürnberg may well opt for a 4-1-4-1 system with Carl Klaus, Jan Gyamerah, Ivan Marquez, Jannes Horn, Nathaniel Brown, Ali Loune, Benjamin Goller, Taylan Duman, Lukas Schleimer, Kanji Okunuki and Daichi Hayashi.
Team News: Greuther Furth
With a completely injury-free squad ready to go, the Greuther Furth manager Alexander Zorniger has no fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this match.
We’re of the thinking that Greuther Fürth might play in a 3-4-1-2 lineup by sending out Jonas Urbig, Maximilian Dietz, Gideon Jung, Gian-Luca Itter, Simon Asta, Robert Wagner, Julian Green, Niko Giesselmann, Branimir Hrgota, Dennis Srbeny and Tim Lemperle.
Our feeling is that Greuther Furth and Nuremberg may well end up cancelling each other out here.
Let’s see how this one goes, but it looks this could have goals and the potential for a draw. Our tip is therefore for a really entertaining tussle with a 2-2 score when the referee blows the final whistle.
