At the end of the 22nd match day in the Bundesliga, Nuremberg vs Dortmund face off in direct duels on Monday evening. Do not worry, we do not want to open another round of discussion about the controversial game date, but only analyze the form of both teams and then make a hopefully payout betting recommendation.
Only a week ago, the odds for a away win of Borussia would probably have been lower than currently between Nuremberg vs Dortmund. This assertion is obvious, because with the “clubbers” sat another coach Michael Köllner on the bench, while the BVB feverishly anticipated the Champions League match at the Tottenham Hotspur Football Club. However, the Favre-Elf drew 3-0 in London and now have to prove in the daily business, in the Bundesliga, that the young team is able to put down setbacks.
Today’s Betting Tips Nuremberg vs Dortmund
Since four competitive matches in three competitions, the black and yellow have not lost. The trend is definitely in the wrong direction, although the starting position is still very promising with still two points ahead of record champions Bayern Munich. The Franks, however, have been without victory for 15 Bundesliga games, conceded in the previous week in a direct duel with relegation rivals Hannover 96 a 0-2 defeat and therefore need a little miracle to realize the desired league after all. The interim coaching duo Schommers / Mintal should make it possible. In the meeting Nuremberg vs. Dortmund seem a prediction on a relatively sovereign success of the league leaders yet obvious.
Nuremberg – Statistics & Current Form
Some called the dismissal of Nuremberg coach Michael Köllner as “long overdue”, the others as “too late”. In the fact that the climber under the direction of the football teacher and his (former) advocate in the management, Andreas Bornemann, have no chance of relegation, but were all agreed. Both leaders were fired at the beginning of last week and had to pack their bags accordingly. Whether the “club” will roll up the field with the interim duo Marek Mintal and Boris Schommers, however, can be doubted with justification. In any case, the achievements of the past few weeks and months do not even give reason for optimism because the Franks have not won since 15 (!) Bundesliga games. The last victory is dated September 29, 2018. At that time there was a 3-0 home win over Dusseldorf, with the Nuremberg for the 0-7-Klatsche eight days earlier at Borussia Dortmund could revenge. On Monday evening, the opponent again called BVB and a positive result in the form of a point win seems almost impossible.
If you want to risk a tip on Double Chance 1 / X in the match between Nürnberg vs Dortmund, you could triple your bet. However, the Franks have never won in the recent twelve direct duels with Borussia. In addition, Christian Mathenia and Co. were in the past twelve Bundesliga games always 0-1 in arrears (new Bundesliga record).
“There will be changes. Both in the line-up and in the way we play. ” – Nuremberg’s new coach Boris Schommers
In connection with the fact that the climber in the ranking is in 18th place and already six points behind the first direct non-relegation rank, actually speak all facts against the hosts. At least a small spark of hope makes the home record, especially since the “club” here with two wins, four draws and five bankruptcies ten of the previous twelve points reached. The fans in the Max Morlock Stadium will also hope for the “new coaching effect” and support the team unconditionally. In the end, however, we prophesy the bottom light missing quality, so that between Nuremberg vs Dortmund alone results in a prediction in favor of Westfalen sense. To make matters worse, Boris Schommers, who will serve as the official coach, will have to give up some important players. Simon Rhein is missing after his red card against Hannover blocked. Virgil Misidjan and Kevin Goden injured in the previous week and will also not be available. For Dennis Lippert, Edgar Salli and defender Georg Marggreiter an assignment comes too early.
Expected formation of Nuremberg:
Mathenia – Leibold, Ewerton, Mühl, Valentini – Behrens, Löwen – Kubo, Pereira – Ishak, Knöll

Dortmund – Statistics & Current Form
Who experienced Borussia Dortmund the first round, could have the feeling that this team is so stable and remains to be able to ride until the end of the euphoric wave. After last four winless competitive games in a row crumbles the nimbus of BVB, however, very slowly. In the Bundesliga, the black and yellow last in Frankfurt (1: 1) and at home against TSG Hoffenheim (3: 3) had to settle for a draw. Particularly spicy: In both games, as well as in the DFB Cup knockout round against Werder Bremen, the team of coach Lucien Favre was in front (against Hoffenheim even with 3: 0) and managed it still not the lead in three points or a progress convert coins. The danger of falling into a mental hole and squandering all chances in three competitions within a few weeks is undoubtedly given. Now it is up to the young Dortmund team to show “eggs” and to pull themselves out of the mess as quickly as possible. Which opponent would currently be more suitable than the 1. FC Nuremberg?
The first leg in Signal-Iduna Park was won by the then still euphoric championship leader 7: 0 (!) And sent an exclamation point to the competition. Although we would rule out a similar high victory for the Monday night game, but still should pay between Nuremberg and Dortmund, the odds to a fairly sovereign success of the guests under normal circumstances.
“The senses are sharpened.” – Michael Zorc
In the current season, BVB won six out of ten away games (three draws, one bankruptcy). The last and to date only match in this season, which took place between a league leaders and a last table, won the Black and Yellow on 8 Matchday loose 4-0 at VfB Stuttgart. A good omen for the end of the 22nd game day, on which the Favre-Elf has set itself the goal to increase the lead on Bayern again on five counters? For all the statistics that speak anyway for the Borussia due to the tabular situation, we justify our Nuremberg vs Germany. Dortmund prediction beyond that with the non-dissuasive quality differences. The defense of the “club” will inevitably get problems with the power-offensive Dortmund, although with Marco Reus probably the most important personality is still missing. Also Manuel Akanji and Lukasz Piszczek will not be in the party.
Expected formation of Dortmund:
Bürki – Hakimi, Zagadou, Diallo, Schmelzer – Delaney, Witsel – Sancho, Götze, Guerreiro – Alcácer
Last matches from Dortmund:
- 13.02.2019 – Tottenham Vs. Dortmund 3: 0 (Champions League)
- 09.02.2019 – Dortmund vs. TSG Hoffenheim 3: 3 (Bundesliga)
- 05.02.2019 – Dortmund vs. Werder Bremen 3: 3 (DFB Cup)
- 02.02.2019 – Frankfurt vs. Dortmund 1: 1 (Bundesliga)
- 26.01.2019 – Dortmund vs. Hannover 5: 1 (Bundesliga)

Nuremberg vs Dortmund Betting Tips and Predictions Explained
For Borussia Dortmund, the away game on Monday evening in Nuremberg is a very special challenge. Not only that the black and yellow have been waiting four full games for a full sense of achievement, the fact that the host with a new coach duo still want to make the turn in league, provides additional explosiveness in a duel, in which the sporting signs actually seem cleared. Perhaps this starting position is also a reason that between Nuremberg and Dortmund, the odds on the away win in the past week have increased slightly.

As Michael Zorc already said, the senses were sharpened and the focus on the upcoming tasks in the Bundesliga laid. In connection with the quality difference of both teams, we are therefore firmly convinced that in the match of the 23rd matchday Nuremberg vs. Dortmund will pay only a tip in favor of Mario Götze and Co.
