Nurnberg hosts Bochum in round 29 of German Bundesliga 2. The match will be played on Saturday, May 30th at Max-Morlock-Stadion (Nuremberg)
Last season Nurnberg rocked in the first Bundesliga, but now the team is in distress - the squad with the eloquent nickname “the Club” is on the 15th line in the standings of the second most powerful division in Germany. The hosts are only two points ahead of Karlsruher, which opens the relegation zone, and this advantage can be lost in the remaining seven rounds. Unlike most teams of Bundesliga 2, Nurnberg spent held three matches after the restart of the season but managed to earn only two points. I’m sure that the hosts may have difficulties in the upcoming match because they are not very confident on their pitch - in 14 home meetings, Keller’s squad managed to win only three times. In the first leg, Nurnberg lost to Bochum away, having conceded three goals in the first half. I think that the hosts will have plenty of problems because Bochum that hangs on the edge of the abyss is incredibly good now.

Five rounds ago, Bochum was one of the main contenders for the relegation, but today's visitors didn’t lose in the last five matches of the championship, having tied three times. After the restart, the team held two matches: first, they tied with Karlsruher, and there was a home victory over Holstein Kiel. The Blue-Whites perform quite well on the road (for the pretender to the relegation) – they suffered only six defeats in 13 away matches. There is some certainty that Reis’s men will be able to cling to the result because Nurnberg is an extremely convenient opponent for Bochum - in the last 13 head-to-head meetings, the Club gained only one victory.
It seems to me that you should not wait for the victory of the hosts in the upcoming game. After resuming the championship, Bochum is acting extremely confidently, so Nurnberg, which rarely shows great football on its field, may have unsolvable problems. I think the visitors will at least not lose.
Prediction for the match: Bochum to win with +0.5 handicap
