Nurnberg hosts Borussia Dortmund in a last match from the 22th round
Nurnberg hosts Borussia Dortmund in a last match from the 22th round of the German Bundesliga. Let’s have a look at this clash at the Signal Iduna Park in our winning soccer predictions.
Borussia Dortmund need to win this game at any cost in order to keep their advantage of 5 points in front of the 2nd Bayern Munich. Dortmund are leading the standings with 50 points won so far, but doing two draws in the last two games allowed Bayern to reduce the gap to the top. Now Lucien Favre’s boys are aware that they must win at any cost against the weakest team in the league.
How we said, Borussia Dortmund lost points in their last two matches in the league, doing draws against Eintracht Frankfurt and Hoffenheim. Especially dissapointing was what happened against Hoffe, because in this game Dortmund had a clear lead of three goals. And they still didn’t win.
As for Nurnberg, how we said – they are the weakest team in the league. Right now Nurnberg are 18th in the standings with just 12 points won. If they want to survive and avoid relegation, they must keep winning as much points as possibel. But this is hard for them, because in their last five matches they won just one point. This happened during the 1-1 draw with Werder Bremen at home.
In their last match Nurnberg suffered a 0-2 defeat during the visit to Hannover 96. The manager Michael Kollner is just unable to find the solution for his team’s problems. If Nurnberg don’t start winning points, it’s going to be difficult for them to survive.
These are our winning soccer predictions for the Bundesliga fixture between Nurnberg and Borussia Dortmund on Monday night. Dortmund are favourites here, but keep it in mind that Nurnberg are desperate for points.
