Betting Tips for the game
Nuremberg are now winless for 17 matches – a new club record – after a 2-1 defeat against Fortuna Dusseldorf. Boris Schommers’ men were not exactly helped by the early red card for Matheus Pereira’s unwanted petulance.
RB Leipzig went six games without a defeat after a 1-1 draw with Hoffenheim during the weekend. The last defeat for RB Leipzig was at the start of the year against Borussia Dortmund.
The reverse fixture witnessed RB Leipzig producing a massive 6-0 victory over Nuremberg at the Red Bull Arena. RB Leipzig, though, were at the end of a 3-1 defeat against Nuremberg when they last travelled to the Max Morlock Stadion. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a victory for RB Leipzig.

Nuremberg have been on a disastrous run of form that is almost certain to get them relegated with the team having picked up only 13 points so far this season. RB Leipzig are fighting at the other end of the table with a real possibility of even moving into the top three places by the end of this weekend. Even though Nuremberg have undergone a managerial change, the memories from the 6-0 defeat earlier in the season against RB Leipzig will remain fresh. Despite a defensive approach from the home team, our preview would go with a win for RB Leipzig.

Nuremberg vs RB Leipzig draw odds: 4.33
Nuremberg win odds: 6.50
Correct Score odds
Nuremberg surprisingly do not have the worst defensive record in the division with that mantle being taken up by Stuttgart. However, RB Leipzig are the best defence in the division by a huge distance after only 20 goals conceded. At the other end, there is a decent threat for the visitors, who can expect Nuremberg to defend deep just as in the game against Fortuna Dusseldorf. Our correct score prediction will go with a 3-0 win for the visitors.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
RB Leipzig have been able to manage over 2.5 goals in each of the last three away matches and they come into the game with a need for three points without fail. After having destroyed Nuremberg in the reverse fixture, it is fair to expect another high-scoring match with over 2.5 goals as per our total goals prediction.

First Goalscorer odds
Yussuf Poulsen is now the top scorer at RB Leipzig after his brace against Stuttgart. Incidentally, the 24-year-old has been able to get four goals in his last three away matches with RB Leipzig, while he was one of the scorers in the reverse fixture back in October. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Yussuf Poulsen.
