• Nurnberg have drawn seven of their 15 home games this season.
  • Greuther Furth have drawn seven of their 15 away games this season.
  • Both teams are without a win in their last six league games.
  • Both teams have scored in five of Greuther Furth’s last six matches.

Wins have been hard to come by for both of these teams lately

Nurnberg claimed a creditable point away at the league leaders Bielefeld last time out, with the game ending 1-1, but have now drawn their last four league games. Greuther Furth also drew 1-1 in their last match away at bottom side Dynamo Dresden and have played out stalemates in four of their last six league games.

These two teams drew 0-0 when they met for their reverse league fixture in November and head into Saturday’s clash 6pts apart in the 2. Bundesliga table. Visitors Furth occupy 9th spot while Nurnberg sit one place above the relegation zone and could drop into the bottom three with a defeat at the weekend.

Both clubs have drawn a lot of games recently

Nurnberg have drawn 12 games so far this season including seven of their 15 home matches, while Greuther Furth have drawn nine times so far and seven of those have come on the road. With the hosts only winning three times in their own backyard and the visitors winning three times on the road, you can see why we’re predicting a draw between the pair this weekend.

The hosts average 1.07 points per home game while the visitors average 1.07 points per away game, adding further weight to our prediction for a draw on Saturday. Nurnberg score an average of 1.00 goals per home game and Greuther Furth score an average of 1.33 goals per away game, which is why we have backed a final scoreline of 1-1 this weekend.

Just 6pts separate the pair in the 2. Bundesliga table

Only 6pts divide these two clubs heading into Saturday’s clash and all of the stats point towards that gap remaining the same after the final whistle. Under 2.5 goals have been produced in 60% of the hosts’ home games as well as in 67% of the visitors away trips and we’re expecting another tight, tense and low-scoring 90-minutes when the two sides lock horns this weekend.
