Struggling Nürnberg will be hoping to pull off an upset when they welcome high-flying Erzgebirge Aue in the upcoming league round. It’s 15th vs 6th and the home crowd will have moderate expectations.
Nürnberg and Erzgebirge Aue should both be in good shape for this meeting, as there's been enough days for both of them to train and rest since their last matches.
Nürnberg form and stats
Nürnberg have played 13 2. Bundesliga games at their own stadium so far this season, resulting in 3-5-5 (wins-draws-losses). Two defeats in a row at home hurts for Nürnberg, their manager J. Keller and the supporters. There are certain expectations for improvement.
Nürnberg are anxiously hoping for a goal as it's been 196 minutes since the last one in league fixtures. (Scored by P. Erras).
In their previous game, the manager J. Keller led his Nürnberg to a defeat in the 2. Bundesliga match away at St. Pauli. The manager is hoping to put things right immediately here at Max-Morlock-Stadion. Preceding that match was the home game against Hannover 96 that was lost 0-3.
The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how Nürnberg have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found ten games) they have won two times, drawn five and lost three.
The manager J. Keller will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to Jahn Regensburg in only four days.
The Nürnberg fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 14 in 13 matches. With more than 1,5 conceded goals on average, the Nürnberg defense is not exactly impregnable. 23 goals conceded from 13 games. You can find more goal stats on the Statistics tab above.

Erzgebirge are the outsiders in this one, but not by much. Their performance in similar games (being the away team and moderate outsiders) is three wins, four draws and six defeats. From a total of 13 matches.
The visitors are returning home after this fixture, hosting Darmstadt 98 in just four days.
