On the first two matchdays of the second half of the relegation battle in the Bundesliga became a real “snail race”. All four clubs in places 15-18 lost their two matches, so that not much has changed compared to the table image, which was drawn at the end of the first half-series. Only the gap to the lower midfield has become even bigger and is even six points for FC Augsburg (15th). Nevertheless, for example, the 1. FC Nuremberg has the chance to jump on the relegation place at the weekend. Prerequisite for this would be, inter alia, a threesome in front of home backdrop against SV Werder Bremen. That in the game in the context of the 20th matchday between Nuremberg and Werder Bremen, the odds, however, turn out in favor of the guests, is not really surprising.
Football Betting Prediction Nuremberg vs Werder Bremen
The team of coach Florian Kohfeldt has come out of the winter break well and collected four points in the past two weekends. Almost more important, however, should be the realization that the Hanseatic League convinced in football and the undoubtedly existing potential not only hinted. In general, the green-whites may be one of the most underrated teams in the highest German league. In addition, because the Nuremberg for more than a few weeks or even months not compelling show competitive and are completely rightly in last place, in direct duel Nuremberg. Werder Bremen a prediction on a sovereign success of the men from the Weser not too far-fetched.
Nuremberg – Statistics & Current Form
The 1. FC Nuremberg celebrated last Tuesday four-month anniversary. On 29 September 2018, the Franks were namely thanks to the 3-0 success at home against Dusseldorf celebrate their last victory in the Bundesliga. It followed until today 13 games in which the climber did not leave the place as a winner. In general, the team of coach Michael Köllner collected in this period only a meager three points and drew equal in ten cases the short straw. Unsurprisingly, Nuremberg was handed the last place in the ranking, although with three points behind the relegation place or four points away on the saving shore, there is still hope that the financially damp “clubbers” will actually make it into the league.
Only the faith in it is missing, because the 1. FCN presented itself both before the winter break, as well as in the first two matches in the new year over long distances like a relegated. A 1: 3 home defeat against Hertha BSC followed a close 1: 2 at FSV Mainz 05. Although Köllner spoke of a good performance of his team and tried the sixth Bundesliga defeat in a row solely due to lack of luck, but now it is eternal “Schönrederei” of the promotion coach not only accustomed, but also sorry. If a team with 16 goals scored the second worst offensive and with 43 goals against the most vulnerable defensive of the league, also only two of 19 matches could make victorious and four months waiting for a full sense of achievement, then it is lacking on the one hand, the necessary quality or on the other hand, the insight that the House of Lords may be one size too big for the Franks.
Because of this catastrophic record, it is almost impossible to give a tip on the tail light on Saturday between Nuremberg and Werder Bremen. The uncertainty is as great as the, due to the home game potentiating pressure to finally have to score. In addition, the thesis that no longer all players believe in the coach or their own strength, should not be completely out of thin air. The recent three home games were all lost and also for the weekend, aims in the clash with Nürnberg vs.. Werder Bremen the prognosis in the same direction. With the exception of the convalescent Dennis Lippert Coach Köllner all men are available.
Expected formation of Nuremberg:
Mathenia – Valentini, Margreitter, Ewerton, Leibold – Petrak – Behrens, Lions – Matheus Pereira – Misidjan – Zrelak

Werder Bremen – Statistics & Current Form
Florian Kohfeldt, coach of SV Werder Bremen, had to put up with some accusations this week. Of too much emotionality, disrespectful behavior towards the officials and a lack of objective game evaluation was talked about again and again. The fact is that the former U23 coach of the North German was relegated in stoppage time due to verbal criticism against the referee of the place. Also not to be talked away is the fact that the young football teacher has a highly subjective view of decisions against his team. Despite all the emerging criticism, the team, however, stood behind their boss and spoke for example in the person of Ludwig Augustinsson of the fact that the emotionality of the actors on the field give energy. The Hanseaten lacked energy in the home game against Eintracht Frankfurt anyway, although the host had to settle for a long-drawn-out performance, ultimately with a 2-2 draw. As already in the first half of the year, the effort involved was not very good in relation to the yield. However, should the Werder team succeed in the near future in optimizing the exploitation of opportunities and – even with leadership – to show more cleverness, then with currently only two points behind, the international seats are definitely a realistic target for the Ex Be a master.
That the Green-Whites have the ability to win in foreign places, shows the previous outlook. With Bayern, Dortmund and Wolfsburg only three Bundesliga side could win more matches in the distance than Werder. Four wins, one draw and four defeats in front of an opposing backdrop mean they are currently in seventh place in the away table, with the Hanseatics being only one of six teams with a positive goal difference (14:13).
No less interesting to find the best value between Nuremberg and Werder Bremen in the too high odds on the HT 2 / FT 2, is the fact that the Kohfeld squad was already in the lead in seven games at halftime, four times out of it. Whenever Bremen led in the stranger after 45 minutes, they also left the field as the winner. Philipp Bargfrede is the only notable failure after his fifth yellow card. The long-term injuries Johansson and Bartels have played no role so far and Yuya Osako, who is staying at the Asian Cup, was missing on the first two games of the second half of the season.
Expected formation of Werder Bremen:
Pavlenka – Gebre Selassie, Veljkovic, Moisander, Augustinsson – Sahin – M. Eggestein, Klaassen – Harnik, J. Eggestein – M. Kruse
Last matches from Werder Bremen:
26.01.2019 – Werder Bremen Vs. Frankfurt 2: 2 (Bundesliga)

11.01.2019 – Bidvest vs. Wits. Werder Bremen 2: 2 (Friendly Match)

Nuremberg vs Werder Bremen Direct Comparison & Statistics Highlights
Head-to-head record: 67 competitive games / 20 wins Nürnberg / 18 draws / 29 wins Bremen
Although historically Bremen has the edge in this pairing, the Hanseatic League could decide only one of the past seven Bundesliga duels against the Franks for themselves. However, the only relevant clash was the first leg, in which the North Germans led 1-0 for a long time, before Misidjan marked the final score 1-1 shortly before the end.
Nuremberg vs Werder Bremen Our Football Prediction
For the 1st FC Nuremberg on Saturday afternoon offers the next opportunity to break through the numerous negative series. The Franks have not won any of their last 13 Bundesliga games, waiting since September 28 for a threesome, recently conceded six defeats in a row and also left in the past three home games always the place as losers. Because the “clubbers” also have the league’s worst defense and are not offensive enough (two goals in the last six matches), it would be unwise in our eyes, between Nuremberg and Werder Bremen to align the prediction in favor of the home side.
Key facts – Nuremberg vs Werder Bremen tips
Nürnberg has been without a win since 13 games and has suffered six defeats in a row
Bremen lead in all four away wins this season already after 45 minutes
Nuremberg represents the weakest defensive of the Bundesliga
Although the Bremen have not impressed by consistently good performances, but the performance shown in Hannover (1: 0) and at home against Frankfurt (2: 2) definitely hope for a better second half. In terms of football, the Kohfeld squad is much better rated, which is why we assume that the Green-Whites will play bravely from the start. The away balance is neat with four wins from nine matches (one draw, four losses). For all four successes in foreign countries led the Hanseatic League already at halftime. Because we again believe in a threesome of Max Kruse and Co. on the weekend, we are in direct duel against Nuremberg. Werder Bremen deliberately opted for the tip on the HT 2 / FT 2.
Betting Prediction: 2/2
