Nurnberg welcoming Paderborn in 17th round of German 2. Bundesliga. They are coming to this match after two consecutive victories and currently are at 6th position at the table with 24 points. They are playing great attacking football and after league leaders Freiburg are most effective team in league with 31 goal scored. So far they suffered 4 defeats and all of them were on matches away from home, so Nurnberg are hoping that they can continue their unbeaten run at home in this campaign. They are without defeat in previous 8 matches and team seems in good shape, they achieved convincing victory in previous round over St. Pauli and that for sure boosted their morale. Nurnberg ended previous season at 9th position and they showed some improving of their form, and for sure will now give their best in this match to continue with positive results in front of their fans. Nurnberg has only two points less than 3rd placed St. Pauli and for sure will now give their best to earn all three points and continue with good results in this season in order to reach at list that third position which leads them into play off for promotion.
Paderborn on the other hand is in bad shape, they are in relegation zone after 16 rounds and in last five matches are without victory. They have been smashed in 1/16 finals of the Cup by Dortmund 7:1, after very poor previous season when they ended at last position in Bundesliga and were relegated, team still didn't managed to find their form and if they don't improve their performances for sure won't be able to avoid another relegation. So far they achieved 4 victories, got 4 draws and suffered 8 defeats.They have one of weakest defenses in league, in 16 matches they conceded 27 goals while scored 16. They must try to get back on the track as soon as possible to try to keep their 2. Bundesliga status and avoid dropping into third league for just two seasons. Obviously something is not working in their team and they must try to achieve positive result here at all costs to end series of bad results and boost their morale for next matches. Last time they played against Nurnberg 9 years ago in 1/16 finals when they were eliminated after extra time. It will be very hard for Paderborn to achieve positive outcome here and they must show much better performances than so far to earn some points here.
Nurnberg is in decent shape, they are still undefeated at their field in this campaign and for sure are capable to achieve positive result here, while Paderborn is in very bad shape, they must try to change something in their squad and start with earning some points, but I believe that Nurnberg will continue with their great attacking football and achieve another victory.
