Nürnberg and Karlsruher SC meet at Max ‑ Morlock ‑ Stadion, in a match for the 5th round of the 2. Bundesliga. The history of head-to-head matches played at this stadium is favorable to the home team, which in the last 3 matches won 1 and drew 2. But the last time these two teams played a match at this stadium, on 21‑09‑2019 , for the 2. Bundesliga, the two teams drew by (1‑1). The goals of the match were scored by J. Geis (24 ‘), for Nürnberg, and M. Stiefler (40′), by Karlsruher SC. Particular attention is needed for the home / away condition, as both teams present significantly different results at home and away.
The home team is currently in 9th position, with 5 points won, after 1 victory, 2 draws and 1 loss. In the penultimate match, they lost at home to Darmstadt 98 by (2‑3). In the last match, they tied in an away match against St. Pauli, by (2‑2). This is a team that curiously tends to achieve more positive results as a visitor than at home, since in the last 30 games they have recorded 6 victories, 6 draws and 3 defeats as a visitor, with 27 goals scored and 18 suffered; against 5 victories, 3 draws and 7 defeats in his stadium, with 19 goals scored and 25 suffered. In their last 10 home games Nürnberg has recorded 2 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses. Their defense has not been very solid, since they have suffered goals in 3 of the last 4 matches, but their offense has scored regularly, since they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 4 matches for this competition. In the last 4 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 3 of their 6 goals between minutes (76’ ‑ 90 ‘).
Nuremberg have not yet managed to present their best football in the competition and they know that it is more than time to have more regularity. This is said because then you will have a better chance of making a positive campaign. So you have to take advantage of the fact of playing at home to go in search of victory. Showing quality and competence, it won’t be a surprise if he leaves the field with all three points.
After 1 victory and 3 defeats, the visiting team is currently in 17th position, with 3 points won. In their last match, they beat Sandhausen at home by (3‑0), after losing away in the previous match against Jahn Regensburg by (1‑0). This is a stronger team with the support of its fans, since in the last 30 games it has recorded 4 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses as a visitor; against 6 wins, 6 draws and 3 losses in his stadium. In their last 10 away matches Karlsruher SC has 3 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses. The team allowed goals to the opponent in 3 of the last 4 matches, so they have not presented great defensive strength, and their attack needs to improve, since they did not score goals in 3 of the last 4 matches for this competition.
After three consecutive defeats, Karlsruher finally claimed their first victory in the competition. The result has not yet taken him out of the relegation zone, but it may be the beginning of a reaction. So you have to focus on evolving game after game, as you can achieve better results. Therefore, on this day, he will do everything possible to get at least a draw, but he is aware that he depends only on himself to win.
