Nurnberg vs Schalke: Top free betting tips

Schalke will be committed to sustaining their much-awaited winning form in 2. Bundesliga against Nurnberg on Saturday, 4 November. The Old Master come into Max Morlock Stadion after extending their winning streak against Hansa Rostock in DFB Pokal.

Match result prediction: Nurnberg to win

Nurnberg has registered four victories in their last five matches in the league and DFB Pokal. However, Schalke have been dismal recently by conceding five defeats in their recent six games. The Royal Blues have also lost their previous four fixtures away from Veltins Arena consecutively. Schalke have managed to go undefeated in their last four away H2Hs against the Old Master and won two of them. However, following the current state of affairs, we see Nurnberg in power to collect three points in this game.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

The previous five H2H meetings between these two sides have finished with both teams on the scoring side. Nurnberg has scored goals in each of their last five competitive games at Max Morlock Stadion. However, the Old Master earned only one clean sheet in that course. Meanwhile, Schalke have rattled the net in four of their last five matches while conceding goals in all of them. Therefore, a BTTS outcome will be the most probable result for this encounter.

Correct score prediction: 3-1 to Nurnberg

Schalke’s scoring line has been in trouble away from Veltins Arena as they have scored only one goal in three of their recent four away games. The Royal Blues have also conceded three or more goals in three games during the aforementioned period. On the other hand, Nurnberg has netted the ball eight times in just the last three fixtures, leaking only three goals in total. Given these numbers, we predict a routine win for Nurnberg with a 3-1 scoreline.
