Nurnberg – Hamburger, 2nd Bundesliga Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR NURNBERG - HAMBURGER
The new Nuremberg coach was appointed early, late last season. Canadi is Austrian and has strong experience. He sold the main midfielder, Lowen, to Hertha, and two of the defenders headed for Hamburger. The attack was reinforced by Heidenheim striker and Sporting winger. Nuremberg had strong games in pre-season preparation and even settled for a PSG match, which finished 1-1.
Hamburger also has a new coach. Hecking is well known on German fields. He led the teams of Wolfsburg and Borussia Monchengladbach in recent years. He now heads to Hamburg to take them to the Bundesliga, where they belong, because the club’s status is serious. Hamburger recorded just one victory in the friendlies.
Expert view : We expect goals because of the many changes in the teams and the new coaches. Hamburger sold Santos and Kostic, so they had to be replaced, but their lineup was weakened. As both teams show attacking strength in almost every game, and this is still the first round, we are betting on a BTTS prediction at 1.66. Even without Hecking, Hamburger scored in almost every away game last season, and Nuremberg has played much more offensively lately. In addition, there is potential for surprise from both teams.
Nuremberg has only 1 clean sheet in the last 8 home games
Hamburger have not scored in just 3 of their last 19 away games
