THE TEAM NEWS

NURNBERG

  • Nurnberg’s issues continued as they failed to win for a fourth consecutive game but they will hope that they can build on the draw they earned on the road at Jahn Regensburg after snatching a point right at the death.
  • Mikael Ishak gave Nurnberg the early lead but two goals in quick succession either side of half-time looked to be enough for Regensburg to condemn the visitors to defeat until some late pressure ended in an own goal for the hosts deep into stoppage time.
  • It was no less than Nurnberg deserved after dominating for much of the game and they should have some real belief about them after sticking in until the final whistle but they still have several injury issues to deal with ahead of this contest.

BOCHUM

  • Bochum made it six Bundesliga 2 matches without tasting defeat and secured a vital three points in their contest with Holstein Kiel in midweek to move further up the table away from the relegation spots.
  • After a goalless first half, Bochum took the lead shortly into the second half thanks to Jordi Osei-Tutu and the hosts’ lead was doubled through Silvere Ganvoula with Bochum managing to hand on despite conceded with just over 15 minutes remaining.
  • It was a crucial three points for Bochum who now look well placed to avoid the drop but will want to extend their unbeaten run here, although they will be without right-back Cristian Gamboa who is banned after collecting his fifth booking of the season against Kiel.

THE PREDICTION

Nurnberg picked up their second draw in succession in midweek as they were finally rewarded for their dominance by finding a leveller deep into stoppage time of their game with Jahn Regensburg. They now host improving Bochum who are unbeaten in their last six in what looks to be an intriguing contest. Bochum’s last two away games have ended without a goal in either contest while Nurnberg are not flush with goals on home soil so this one is likely to be a low-scoring affair.
