Nurnberg vs. Darmstadt Prediction & Betting tips
On Sunday, the Max Morlock Stadium will host the landmark meeting between hosts Nürnberg and Darmstadt. After recently it looked as if the club would almost certainly rise directly into the Bundesliga, the Franks finally made three attempts in series. Darmstadt, on the other hand, still struggles to survive in the 2nd Bundesliga and needs points to prevent passing through to the 3rd league. The first leg was spectacular. In the Merck Stadium at Böllenfalltor the spectators got to see seven goals.
On 18.02.2018 Nuremberg won at home against MSV Duisburg 3-1 and took over the league standings of Fortuna Dusseldorf with this victory. The press headlined who would want to stop these Nurembergers. The quick answers should be: At least once before Bochum, Fürth and Bielefeld. After the home victory against the zebras Nuremberg had to go against the just mentioned opponents. Not only did Nuremberg get just one point from these three games, the club did not even manage to score their own in these three games. The goalless draw at VfL Bochum was followed by the defeat in the Frankenderby at home against relegation candidate Fürth and on the final day of the 0: 1 shortly before the end at Arminia Bielefeld. And zack, have become seven points ahead of third place in mid-February only four. Even the lead on Jahn Regensburg in fourth place is only six points.

In the form table of the last five games Nuremberg is with the one threesome against Duisburg and otherwise two draws and defeats only on rank 15. At home against Darmstadt it should now give the hoped-for liberation, but just at home Nuremberg has its problems. Of 13 home games in the 2nd Bundesliga, the club could win only six and thus not even half. Otherwise, there were three more draws and four losses. Despite their own goals in the last three league games, Nürnberg still scores the second-best attack of all 18 teams with 46 goals. Due to the weak results in these last three games Dusseldorf at the top of the table is now on five points hurry.
In the duel of the two relegated from the Bundesliga Darmstadt came on the final day at home against Ingolstadt only to a 1: 1. This brought the lilies very little, especially as Erzgebirge Aue, Bochum and Brunswick also took a counter and Fürth even scored three times. Only the lead over taillight Kaiserslautern, which lost in Fürth, Darmstadt could now increase to three points. Darmstadt itself is penultimate with a record of six wins, nine draws and eleven defeats. The residue on Bochum on the saving bank is four, on the Aue on the relegation relegation place three counters. The return of the former successful trainer of the lilies, Dirk Schuster, to the Böllenfalltor has not yet been crowned with success. In nine games under his direction, there were only two threes, but already four defeats (all in series) and three more draws.
After all, Darmstadt could remain unbeaten in the last three games after the interim four consecutive bankruptcies. But the next weeks of the SV Darmstadt 98 have it all. On the next three matchdays, Darmstadt has to play at Nürnberg, at home against Dusseldorf and then at Holstein Kiel and thus the top three of the 2nd Bundesliga! In these three games, the fate of lilies could already decide. With also Sandhausen, Union Berlin and Jahn Regensburg Darmstadt has a very heavy rest program. In a decent yield but it could come again on the final day of the final on the ball. Then the lilies receive the violets of Erzgebirge Aue.
