Every soccer game writes its own story. The protagonist of the duel between Nuremberg and RB Leipzig – this prediction can be dared – is undoubtedly Robert Klauss. The 35-year-old last worked as an assistant to Julian Nagelsmann at the Saxons and finally took over his very first head coach position at the second division team at Valznerweiher in the summer.
On Saturday afternoon, the former work colleagues will meet again. Before the duel Nuremberg vs RB Leipzig naturally beat the betting odds of the best bookmakers in the direction of the Champions League semi-finalist, who, by the way, has not played another match since then. A small question mark must therefore be placed behind the shape of the “Red Bulls”.
The 1. FCN is not much different, especially since the second division season does not begin until the coming weekend. There the Franconians have set themselves a lot after an indisputable 19/20 season. In terms of football in particular, the ex-first division club wants to show a different face and ideally start at the weekend in the DFB Cup.
With all the emerging euphoria that the new, dynamic trainer has provided, there is no question in our eyes that the prediction between Nuremberg and RB Leipzig must be aligned in the direction of the “nail men”. In terms of quality, there are worlds between the two clubs. In addition, the “club” has to do without its own fans. Due to the strict guidelines in Bavaria, a maximum of 200 visitors are allowed in the Max Morlock Stadium on Saturday.

Nuremberg – Statistics & current form
1. FC Nürnberg has had a season to forget. Much would not have been missing and the worst-case scenario in the form of relegation to the third division would have become a reality. A last-minute hit in the second leg of the relegation against FC Ingolstadt saved the “club” from passing through from the top division in league three.
In the summer, the club bosses were finally forced to turn all the stones and, above all, to improve the important positions. As mentioned, a new coach, Robert Klauß, has been hired who stands for very innovative and offensive football. In addition, with the long-time Bundesliga coach Dieter Hecking as sports director, additional expertise could be brought on board.
New coach Klauss has a RB history
In the preparation so far, the Franks have already indicated their potential. For example, the second division beat TSG Hoffenheim 5-2. Further test matches against Bundesliga club Augsburg and Union Berlin (both 1: 2) were lost. Even if the results from the pre-season should never be hung too high, the prognosis between Nuremberg and RB Leipzig must be borne in mind that not just any middle-class team from the upper house, but a Champions League contender in the Max Morlock Stadium travels.
Under these conditions, it could even turn out to be a disadvantage that coach Klauss wants his team to play courageously and defend it. We don’t believe that the “clubbers” are ready to engage in an open exchange of blows. As a result, in the qualitatively unequal duel we prefer Nuremberg vs RB Leipzig the odds on the guest, possibly even on double the result (HT2 / FT2).

RB Leipzig – Statistics & current form
Normal preparation looks definitely different. Under normal circumstances, it takes around six weeks to get in the mood for the start of the new season with a few test matches. However, RB Leipzig did not have that time this summer, as the Champions League final tournament is still on the program in August, a few weeks after the end of the Bundesliga season, in which the “Red Bulls” surprisingly reached the semi-finals.
After another few days off, the Saxons are now in part two of the preparation. Test matches have not yet been played. The Leipzigers were therefore on the pitch for the last time in a competitive game on August 18, which is also the reason that surprisingly high odds are offered between Nuremberg and RB Leipzig that the favorite is already leading at halftime and the field is ultimately after regular Leaving game time as a winner.
RB Leipzig even more unpredictable without Werner?
If it is up to the individual quality of the individual players, a clear away win can even be expected. The team of coach Julian Nagelsmann has proven in the premier class that the departure of Timo Werner does not tear the structure apart. On the contrary: after the change of by far the best goalscorer, other players have the chance to move into focus. The new flexibility in the offensive could therefore turn out to be a plus point.
The bottom line is that we do not want to deny that we lack timely references in order to be able to finally assess the current performance level of the “Red Bulls”. The last impression from Lisbon, the desire of the players to be able to play a competitive game again after around four weeks and of course the enormous quality are still passable indications for a favorite bet. Incidentally, the injured Laimer and Konaté and the new substitute goalkeeper Martinez, who brought a ban from the Copa del Rey to Germany, are not available on Saturday.
Probable formation of RB Leipzig:
➥ Gulacsi – Klostermann, Upamecano, Halstenberg – Mukiele, Sabitzer, Kampl, Angelino – Dani Olmo, Nkunku – Poulsen

Nuremberg vs RB Leipzig Direct comparison
The Nürnberger will not remember the last two direct duels so fondly. In the 2018/2019 season, at the end of which the relegation from the top floor was sealed, there were two defeats, a 0-1 at home and a 6-0 in the central city. Both times the Saxons were in front at halftime. At least the fact that both second division home games against the can club were once made victorious should give the Franks some courage.

Nuremberg vs RB Leipzig Free Betting Tips Provided by Insider Tipsters
Many Bundesliga clubs found easy tasks on paper when they were drawn for the first round in the DFB Cup. Not so with the “Red Bulls”, who start with 1. FC Nürnberg. This duel is particularly attractive thanks to “Club” trainer Klauss, who was on the bench with Julian Nagelsmann in Saxony last season.
The 35-year-old is of course very familiar with the ideas of his former boss and will do everything in his power to prepare his team as well as possible. It is still doubtful whether the Franconians will ultimately succeed in implementing the match plan and confronting the favorites with problems. The difference in quality is too blatant and the impressions of the Nuremberg team that prevented relegation to the third division with a lot of dizziness are too fresh.
Key facts – Nuremberg vs RB Leipzig tips
🔥 Coach Klauss celebrates his debut at Nürnberg
🔥 The Leipzigers have not played a match since the Champions League semi-finals
🔥 RBL has always scored at least three goals in the last three first-round duels in the cup
For this reason, we do not trust the men from Valznerweiher to have a surprise on Saturday afternoon. We even believe that Robert Klauss’ presumed very aggressive approach could be the undoing of our own team. If the second division team acts too bravely, a clear defeat threatens.
