European Football Tips For The Weekend 5th March & 6th March
Going into the weekend Nurnberg are one of the form sides in the Bundesliga occupying 8th position and just a point away from a Europa League qualification place in 6th. Nurnberg are unbeaten in their last 6 games picking up 4 victories in the process including a 1-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen. But it is at home that Nurnberg have built a fine record this season winning 8 out of 12 matches, with on loan Stuttgart forward Julian Schieber scoring 5 of his 7 goals at the Frankenstadion.
Nurnberg’s opponents on Saturday are St Pauli who were promoted from the Bundesliga 2 last season. St Pauli have been performing above expectations, but their season seems to follow a certain patch of form and are currently on a 2 game losing streak, which Dieter Hecking’s Nurnberg look likely to extend.
Nurnberg to win @1.83
Over in France and the Ligue 1 average of games with under 2.5 goals is at a noticeably high 57%. The best placed game for a lack of goals this weekend again involves Nice, who have scored just 17 goals in 25 games. Only 1 of Nice’s last 16 games has finished with more than 2 goals and the visit of 19th placed Lens to the Stade Municipal du Ray is unlikely to change that statistic.
58% of Lens away games have seen less than 3 goals including the last 3 away matches and goals are equally a problem for manager Laszlo Boloni whose Lens side have still scored less than a goal a game on average so far in Ligue 1.
