Pressure Could Be Back On Bayern
Come kick-off, the pressure may well be on Bavarians to earn their spot back at the head of the table should Dortmund win on Saturday.
They travel to Nurnberg, who are struggling at the bottom of the table as they sit in 17th place – nine points adrift of relegation safety and three from the relegation play-off place.
However, most of the damage to their season was done under previous coach Michael Köllner, as they lost 13 of their 21 matches, with their only wins against rock-bottom Hannover and the newly promoted Dusseldorf back in September.
Nurnberg Recent Form
Since interim manager Boris Schommers took over, things have looked up as although they’ve only recorded one victory from their nine matches, only one of their five defeats was by more than a single strike (Leverkusen 2-0) as they’ve proven much more competitive.
In fact, they’ve gone W1-D2-L1 under new management on home turf, as they salvaged a stalemate against Lucien Favre’s men and only lost 1-0 to Leipzig in their two matches against top opposition.
Nurnberg v Bayern Munich Betting Tips
It has been a return to formality for Bayern as they’ve won 11 of their last 16 matches in all competitions since February.
However, they have seemed slightly vulnerable on the road in this time as other then their defeat against Liverpool at the Allianz, each of their four slip-ups have come away from home, winning only half their eight trips and just two of these were by more than a single strike.
Moreover, their hosts have drawn four of their seven matches at the Max-Morlock-Stadion with the breakaway top-half teams this term, with their biggest losing deficit just two goals, and they look far too big a price to at least keep it respectable.
