Football Prediction of the Day Nuremberg vs Schalke
The extremely delicate Nuremberg situation does not allow the team to have patience in the search for results. You will have to attack from the beginning and expose your fragile defense. This may make life easier for Schalke, who understands that he has no other way to avoid a disaster than to act conservatively and seek counterattacks. In this way, the prognosis in the success of the visitors ends up being the best option for the meeting of this Saturday by the twenty-ninth round of the German Championship version 2018/2019.
Bet Tips: Schalke
A difficult match to predict the winner. Schalke is given as the favorite, but Nurnberg on his own ground has kept Dortmund, Leverkusen or Frankfurt, matches that he escaped unbeaten.
Even RB Leipzig failed to score more than one goal on the Mas-Morlock Stadion and Werder, teams more offensive than the “miners”.
I will count as Schalke will score a goal in this match. If I win, I think it will do 1-0, I do not expect many goals.
Theoretically, Nurnberg should dominate the game and seek victory. If Schalke marks a goal, I’m convinced that he will then defend himself and not seek to double his advantage.
