The struggling Nurnberg side welcome Wolfsburg to Max-Morlock-Stadion hoping to end a four-game home winless streak in the Bundesliga.
Winless in their last eight Bundesliga meetings the hosts currently reside one place above the relegation zone thanks to a better goal difference than Stuttgart. Nurnberg’s strugglings ever since their return to the German top tier competition mainly relates to their poor defensive displays. Not only Der Ruhmreiche (33) conceded more goals than any other team in the Bundesliga, but they have allowed a minimum of two goals per match seven times in their last ten league games. What’s more, Michael Köllner’s players have scored just 14 goals in their opening 14 encounters, which is the third-worst goalscoring record in the German top flight this campaign.
Meanwhile, the visitors have endured a tough period which has seen them securing just one Bundesliga triumph in nine matches, as they now come into this encounter looking to stretch their unbeaten league run to four. Encouraged by the wins over RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt and a 2-2 road draw with TSG Hoffenheim, the Bruno Labbadia’s players will be trying to keep a clean sheet after four unsuccessful attempts in their past five Bundesliga clashes. The Wolves have also secured three victories on their last four road trips, scoring at least two goals in each of those wins. Furthermore, four out of their six away games in the German top flight this term have produced over 2.5 goals.
