The second of our Saturday lunchtime Bundesliga 2 previews comes from Karlsruher as Karlsruher prepare to take on Nurnberg. It’s an intriguing contest between two teams who have plenty to play for. Nurnberg find themselves in seventh position but only five points off the promotion spots. For Karlsruhe they find themselves in 11th but only six points off relegation. It’s essential that both teams win three points here to keep there momentum at the top and bottom of the table.
By virtue of playing at home Karlsruhe are the slight favourites for this encounter. It’s a very hard match to call as both teams head into this match in pretty poor form. Karlsruhe are 12th in the form table having only won five points from the last fifteen available. Nurnberg haven’t been able to fair much better sitting in 10th in the form table only picking up six points from the last fifteen. The head to head between the sides is heavily weighted in Nurnberg favour with the away side winning three of the last five contests. Nurnberg have the seventh best away record in the league and we have to feel at the prices and due to the fact they are higher in the league it could be the way to play here.
Over 2.5 goals
Both teams have recently been involved in games that have seen plenty of goals scored. Karlsruhe have seen over 2.5 goals scored in three of their last five matches whilst Nurnberg have seen the total surpassed in four of their last five. Only once in the last five head to head meetings has the over been reached between these teams but it was the last time that these teams locked horns. At a pretty decent price of 3/4 we will predict that the over 2.5 goals might come in for a second time.
Both teams to score
Both of these teams have been struggling to keep clean sheets with both sides only being able to keep one clean sheet in their last five matches. Karlsruhe hold the fourth worst defensive record in the league and despite neither side being prolific in front of goal we think the smart bet is to back both teams to find the back of the net here.
