On Friday, January 26, 2024, two mid-table sides will meet at the football field, hoping to catch a glimpse of the top flight. We are talking about the Hannover 96 vs FС Nurnberg match.

Die Roten are currently ranked 9th in Bundesliga 2, but only 9 points away from 3rd place, which gives them the right to play in the playoffs. Therefore, the team still has hopes of getting into the Bundesliga.

Hannover vs Nurnberg: What to Expect From the Teams

Hannover 96

Stefan Leitl’s team could be much higher now, but a 6-match winless streak prevented them from doing so. Although the opponents included Holstein Kiel (3:0), Paderborn (1:0) and St. Pauli (0:0), there were also opponents with whom they had to try to get the most out of, as these were matches against direct competitors Karlsruhe (2:2), Hertha (2:2) and Elversberg (2:2). The game against the latter was the last one before the Hannover 96 vs Nurnberg match.

The game against Elversberg began with a goal from Nicolò Tresoldi in the 6th minute of the game. Hannover quickly took the lead and continued to put pressure on the opponent. Andreas Voglsammer had a good chance to double the score, but the first half ended with the visitors with a minimal advantage.

In the second half, Voglsammer must have remembered their moment more than once, as the second half began with two goals from the hosts – Jannik Rochelt equalized in the 57th minute, and three minutes later Frederik Jäkel put Elversberg ahead.

Two missed goals refreshed Hannover 96 a bit and Nicolò Tresoldi restored parity in the 69th minute. For the rest of the game, the teams exchanged attacks on each other’s goal but failed to score again – 2:2.

The guests have a very similar situation with their opponents. Cristian Fiél’s wards also played several matches against direct competitors for the position and leaders of the championship, but their results were much more successful than the opponent’s.

1 FC Nurnberg also played against Hertha (3:1), Holstein Kiel (0:2), Paderborn (1-3), and Elversberg (1:0), but these matches were victorious for the team. However, the matches against Hamburger (0:2), Fortuna (0:5) and Karlsruhe (4:1) have already ended in defeat.

Luckily for Die Legende, they pulled themselves together and confidently played a match against Hansa Rostock, their first official match after the Christmas break.

The main creator of the victory against Hansa was 18-year-old Turkish Can Uzun, who is playing his debut season for the Nurnberg first team. Uzun made a double in the first half, which gave his team confidence before the second half. Jens Castrop only had to finish off the opponent in the 51st minute, when he set the final score of the match – 3:1.

Hannover vs Nurnberg: Match Prediction

1 FC Nurnberg is coming into this match in the best possible shape. The team was able to show well in matches against the leaders, and the victory against Hansa Rostock only once again confirmed their good form.

Hannover 96 is in search of stability and is hardly ready to take on an opponent like Die Legende. Statistics do not play in favor of the hosts, as 6 matches without a win speak for themselves.

Hannover vs Nurnberg Prediction: X2 with odds at 1.96.

Nurnberg win or draw
