Nurnberg welcome the visitors Bayer 04 Leverkusen in the German Bundesliga – Round 13. The match will be held on Monday, December 3rd at the Max-Morlock-Stadion (Nuremberg).
Nurnberg are currently one of the weakest Bundesliga clubs in this season. In most of their matches, the team look horrible; they stay only one point off the relegation zone. The main issue of the team is their defensive play. In 12 rounds, Nurnberg allowed 29 goals, missing 2.5 goals per match on average. We believe they will allow at least 2 goals in the coming match against Bayer 04 Leverkusen. Irrespective of the match result, Nurnberg allowed over 1 goal in four in five previous league rounds and in two in three latest home games.

Bayer’s start to the championship was certainly a failure, and they rarely please their fans with a good outcome. The club are hovering yet five points above the drop zone, holding the 12th line in the table. Bayer have to win in matches with league outsiders, even away. Given that their defense is not ideal (most likely they will not manage to keep a clean sheet on Monday), they will have to score at least twice. It’s worth noting that irrespective of the result, the Leverkusen team have been netting a lot lately. They scored at least 2 goals in their opponents’ net in three in five last rounds. They failed to find the net only in the outing against Leipzig, and scored only once to Hoffenheim, but everyone would agree that these teams’ performance is very different from the hosts’ one. In the last rounds, Bayer scored 2 goals to Hannover and Stuttgart, and they shipped yet 6 goals to Werder in the away match.
In our view, the guests are favorite in the coming match. If not to win the league outsider, who to win then? We are quite sure that the hosts will score at least once, so the visitors will have to score at least twice, to get a win. In four in five last head-to-heads, Bayer scored at least 2 goals in Nurnberg’s net. So, we predict the guests to score over 1.5 goals.
Prediction for the match: Bayer 04 Leverkusen to score over 1.5 goals.
