On Friday night, Nurnberg host Schalke in a game that could have big implications at the bottom of the Bundesliga.

Nurnberg are currently four points away from the relegation play-off spot and eight points away from the safety of 15th place in the German top-flight.

The home side has won just one of their last 22 matches in the Bundesliga. However, they have taken four points from their last two league games, which has raised hope amongst their supporters that their form has turned for the better.

Nurnberg’s home form in the Bundesliga has been poor of late. In fact, a 3-0 victory over Augsburg in their last home match ended a ten-game winless run on home soil. Their recent home matches have been low scoring, with seven of their last ten home games in the German top-flight producing under 2.5 goals.

Schalke are just five points clear of the relegation play-off spot, as the visitors have been in woeful form of late in the Bundesliga, winning just one of their last ten league outings, while suffering seven defeats in the process. The visitors have struggled defensively of late in the league, as they have conceded at least two goals in seven of their ten winless games.

Schalke’s away form has played a big part in their current league position, as they have recorded just one win in their last five matches on their travels. However, that one win came in their last away game at Hannover in a 1-0 victory.

Huub Stevens’ side has been involved in a number of high scoring games on their travels, with five of their last six matches producing over 2.5 goals.

Forebet predicts that Schalke will record a victory in a high scoring game to move away from the leagues bottom three.
