Nuremberg have been stuck at the bottom of the table for much of the campaign largely due to an offence that has failed to test the opposition sufficiently. Augsburg have been able to profit from the return of players like Finnbogason and the club’s recent momentum is excellent thanks to a run of two wins and a draw in the last three matches. Yet, away form is a disaster for Augsburg, who have suffered a defeat in eight out of the 13 trips. Yet, the struggles faced by Nuremberg should let Augsburg take the initiative in the match and get a victory, according to our preview.

Correct Score odds
Augsburg have been able to pick up just one win in the last five meetings against Nuremberg, but another victory would put Manuel Baum’s team closer to safety. Augsburg have scored a relatively attractive eight goals in the last six matches. Even though the team’s defence is not the best, Nuremberg should not be a threat. Nuremberg have only managed two goals in the last six matches and their offence has been amongst the poorest in Europe. Our correct score prediction would go with a 1-0 win for Augsburg.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This match pits two teams that have struggled for goals – Augsburg in the case of away matches and Nuremberg in every game. Augsburg have only managed a goal every other away match in the last six games, while Nuremberg have only managed two goals in the last six of all matches. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Alfred Finnbogason returned to the starting line-up in the win over Hannover, but he failed to score in the 59 minutes that he spent on the pitch. The 30-year-old has scored in just one of the last eight appearances for Augsburg but it was a hat-trick against Mainz 05. Finnbogason scored the opener when Augsburg faced Nuremberg in the reverse fixture. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Alfred Finnbogason.
