Nurnberg vs Ingolstadt Prediction & Betting tips
FC Ingolstadt was just a few seconds short of Saturday’s direct promotion to the 2nd Bundesliga. When their own away game at 1860 Munich was already over (2-0 victory), the players and managers looked eagerly at the cell phone to finally see how the Würzburg Kickers were awarded a penalty in added time and scored it from their perspective as the 2 : 2 transformed.
The Schanzer dropped back to fourth place and had to be detained twice on Tuesday and Saturday. Before the relegation first leg between Nuremberg and Ingolstadt, according to the odds of the best bookmakers, the current second division team is treated as the favorite, although numerous statistics paint a different picture.
For example, the club has not won any of their last six home games in the House of Commons, while the FCI have been unbeaten seven times in a row. Nevertheless, the betting providers between Nuremberg and Ingolstadt dare to predict that the home side, who may be of a slightly higher quality, will get a good starting position with a home win on Tuesday.
Perhaps it is the new Nuremberg coach Michael Wiesinger, who led the opponent from Audi City to the 2nd Bundesliga in two relegation matches almost exactly ten years ago. Now he should save the men from Valznerweiher as successors to Jens Keller from the super-Gau. We expect a competitive first leg and tend against Nürnberg vs. Ingolstadt on a tip on rather few goals.
Will 1. FC Nürnberg once again live up to its reputation as an “elevator team”? Only a year after the silent and soundless descent from the Bundesliga, the club now faces the worst case scenario. In two relegation games, the Franks must prevent the total crash into the third division. Started as a promotion aspirant in the second division season, the disappointing 16th place jumped out after 34 match days. No league competitor celebrated even fewer victories in the lower house than the 1st FCN.
No wonder that the mood at Valznerweiher is extremely tense. Sports director Palikuca is heavily criticized and has to accept the accusation of having signed two coaches with Canadi and then Jens Keller, who were not even able to form a working collective out of the existing player potential.
As a consequence, Coach Keller also had to vacate his position after the 1-1 draw against Kiel on the last matchday and the associated slide down to position 16. Michael Wiesinger and Marek Mintal are now two club legends. It is quite possible that the two will release new impulses and set up a team lying on the ground again. This hope is offset by catastrophic figures.
The Francs have not won at home since February 2nd. Four of the last six home games were lost; After the re-start, the 1st FCN remained in three of four games in their own stadium without conceding a goal. Coupled with the fact that last year’s Bundesliga club won only one of their nine second division games after the interruption, it takes courage to take risks in order to make a prediction of the home win between Nuremberg and Ingolstadt.
To what extent the new coaching duo will convert the team is currently not foreseeable. It is a fact, however, that hope in particular rests on the shoulders of 21-year-old Robin Hack, who was the only bright spot in the second half of an otherwise disappointing Nuremberg team. Experienced Johannes Geis also hopes for more in the games of fate at Valznerweiher.
At FC Ingolstadt, a few days after the season finale, there is still some disagreement as to whether the joy about the by no means safe entry into the relegation outweighs the grief over the missed direct promotion, which was only a few seconds away? In any case, coach Tomas Oral, who was already on the bench at the relegation last year when the Schanzer were the losers against Wehen-Wiesbaden and descended, is trying to be confident and optimistic.
At the same time, he also knows that it could be an enormous mental challenge to motivate yourself again. In addition to the psychological stress before the first leg between Nuremberg and Ingolstadt when evaluating the odds, it should also be taken into account that the second division had over a week to regenerate and prepare for the task. The FCI only had two full days, which led to discussions about the schedule in the run-up to these playoffs.
However, there are also arguments that speak for the third division. For example, the Autostädter have not lost abroad since February 22nd. Even better: the most recent three guest appearances were victorious and the Schanzer stayed four times in a row without conceding a goal. The bottom line was that the Ingolstadt team was the best away team in the 3rd division and also the most stable defensive.
Similar to the opponent from Nuremberg, the impressions are divided, which is why we would refrain from a tip on the three-way market in the match Nuremberg against Ingolstadt. More interesting is a bet on a maximum of two goals in the course of the game. The same would have been successful in eight of the last nine games with FCI participation, as well as the recommendation for the “BTS – No”.
