Nuremberg look to conclude 2018 in a positive fashion when they host Freiburg at the Max Morlock Stadium this weekend. Nuremberg have been relegated to the bottom of the table after the midweek results with Hannover now level on points. Michael Köllner’s team need three points in order to catch Stuttgart and a further point in order to catch up with a Fortuna Dusseldorf team fast rising up the table. Meanwhile, Freiburg remain in the bottom half of the table with only three points separating them from the top half. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Nuremberg had yet another unimpressive performance that led to a 2-0 defeat against Borussia Mönchengladbach in the midweek game. This was the third consecutive loss for Nuremberg and they have failed to score a goal in all these games.
Freiburg were held to a 1-1 draw by relegation-threatened Hannover in a disappointing game at the Schwarzwald-Stadion. Freiburg have only picked up one victory in the last five matches.
Nuremberg and Freiburg meet each other for the first time since 2015 when both teams were in the second division. Back then, Nuremberg claimed a 2-1 home victory over Freiburg. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Freiburg have had some decent performances of late and Christian Streich was able to get his players playing at a much better intensity in the match against Hannover. Yet, they remain very poor when it comes to away matches with just five points on the road this season. Both of Nuremberg’s victories this season have been at home but the team has looked rather poor of late. After having drawn 50% of the last four matches at the Max Morlock Stadium, Nuremberg may be capable of holding the visitors to a stalemate.

Correct Score odds
Despite being in the bottom, Nuremberg have averaged only a goal at either end. Freiburg are also not great when it comes to getting goals on the road. Streich has frequently asked for better intensity from his players when it comes to away matches, but the mediocre form enjoyed by the forwards has prevented Freiburg from making a significant impact. Our correct score prediction would pick a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This match features two teams that have not been steeped in form coming into this match. While Freiburg have been able to get some offensive momentum due to the presence of players like Nils Petersen, Nuremberg have only managed three goals in the last six games. Our total goals prediction expects under 2.5 goals in this match.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals under 2.5 at 1.80[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Nils Petersen is just one goal shy of becoming the outright top scorer for Freiburg but he wasted several good opportunities against Hannover. The forward is on three goals for the campaign but his last away goal in the Bundesliga was in September. Despite this long wait, our first goalscorer prediction would back Petersen.
