1. FC Magdeburg vs 1. FC Nurnberg Match Analysis & Prediction
12/05/2023 7:30 pm
With the 2. Bundesliga season approaching its conclusion, Magdeburg sit in mid-table ahead of Friday’s meetings at MDCC-Arena with an Nurnberg side who are fighting for survivak near the bottom of the table.
Having scored 42 goals and conceded 52 in the process, Magdeburg are currently sitting in 11th place in the 2. Bundesliga standings on 39 points from 31 matches.
Magdeburg played out a 0-0 draw in their last 2. Bundesliga match at Voith-Arena against Heidenheim, extending their unbeaten run to three games.
Christian Titz’s side have secured 18 points – five wins, three draws and seven losses – from a possible 45 on offer in 15 2. Bundesliga matches at home this season.
Nurnberg’s last 2. Bundesliga match ended in a 3-3 draw against Kaiserslautern at Max-Morlock-Stadion, leaving them in 14th place on 34 points.
That result left the club sitting just four points outside of the relegation postitions with three matches left to play.
Dieter Hecking’s side will be looking to address a poor run of results on their travels this season with four draws, nine losses and just one win in league away matches.
Nurnberg will be out to end an eight-game away winless run, as they have not won on the road since October 2022 against Fortuna Dusseldorf.
Magdeburg won the last 2. Bundesliga encounter between the teams, coming out on top 2-1 at Max-Morlock-Stadion in November.
