Nurnberg showed significant improving of their form in comparison to a previous season when ended at 9th position, now are at more than decent third place which leads them into play off for promotion, they have three points less than second placed Leipzig and still have a chance to win direct promotion into German top league. They awaiting rock bottom placed Duisburg in 29th round of German second Bundesliga and victory is a must in this match. Hosts are in great shape, they are undefeated since December and duel against Hertha in German Cup while in league are without defeat since October, they are coming here after six straight victories while most recently in previous round achieved victory over Frankfurt on the road 0:3, they played really great in that match and were better in all segments of the game, that victory should be only more convincing but for sure are satisfied with that result, now are coming here with only victory in their minds and i'm sure that will manage to achieve another positive outcome in front of their fans and get one step closer to a promotion. Goalkeeper Schafer (13/0), midfielder Erras (16/5) and Polak (15/2) are all injured and won't be available for this game.
Duisburg on the other side are in terrible form, they achieved only three victories in this season and all of them were at home, they have nine points less than safe placed Dusseldorf and it seems almost impossible for them to keep their 2. Bundesliga status for the next season. Guests suffered defeat in previous round against Heidenheim at home 0:2 and had lacked of accuracy in that game which was main cause of that defeat, before that divided points with also relegation placed Paderborn on the road after goalless draw and I really don't believe that here will manage to avoid defeat against great hosts. Visitors showed really poor attacking skills and in previous 28 rounds scored 23 goals, least in league, while their defense is among the worsts with 46 goals conceded. After pretty good previous campaign when they won their promotion from third league it seems that they simple can't compete with teams from second league and I doubt that will manage to avoid relegation. In previous game against Nurnberg in October they earned one point after goalless draw but now will be extremely difficult to avoid defeat since hosts seems almost unstoppable. Let's add that midfielder Dausch (12/0), De Wit (1/0), Wiegel (1/0 and Brandstetter (5/0) will all miss this game due to injuries while forward Iljutcenko (19/3) is having issues with minor injury and his appearance is in doubt.
Hosts are on great run, they seems more than capable to achieve victory here and continue with series of great results and celebrate for the 7th time in a row, guests meanwhile are in terrible shape in this season and probably will be relegated, they will for sure give their best to at least avoid defeat but hosts are very strong and in great shape and I believe that will earn another three points here.
