Mario and the video evidence. What at first glance looks like the name of a children’s book, has made headlines in the second league this past week. The former international Mario Gomez scored three goals in the away game in Sandhausen, but in all three cases were denied by the video referee due to offside positions.
VfB Stuttgart vs Nurnberg Betting Odds and Predictions
VfB Stuttgart lost the South derby 1: 2 and thus conceded the fifth defeat from the last seven second division games. The criticism of coach Tim Walter is growing daily. According to rumors, those responsible should have already threatened their coach with consequences, should the buck in the near future not be overturned.
Against this backdrop, it is somewhat surprising that the bookmakers before the game VfB Stuttgart against Nuremberg on Monday evening such low odds on a success of the Swabians proclaim.
The one-sided distribution is justified on the one hand by the fact that the current fourth is allowed to compete in front of a home crowd and on the other hand because of the weak form of the opponent.
Before the duel of the two Bundesliga relegated the situation on Valznerweiher is even more critical. After the results of the weekend, the club has slipped to the relegation place in the direction of the third division.
The last victory was in September. Nevertheless, we venture between VfB Stuttgart and Nurenberg, the prediction that a tip on the outsider brings more value than a potential bet on the battered career aspirants.
VfB Stuttgart – Statistics & Current Form
At VfB Stuttgart there is a lot of hot talk these days. Why is it that the second-league high-quality squad is currently lagging behind the expectations? Why do not the high possession shares result in more goals being scored? And above all, is Tim Walter the right man on the bridge?
The final question is currently in the center, because reportedly those in charge should no longer be sure that the former junior coach of Bayern Munich can steer the event in order.
Last year’s Kiel is accused of arrogance and incorruptibility from internal circles. Two attributes that do not necessarily make it easier for a team to win over.
In fact, it hailed harsh criticism lately. Sporting director Sven Mislintat criticized the lack of efficiency in front of the opponent’s goal and the many individual mistakes that led to some light goals. At the same time, the ex-chief scout of Liverpool FC and Borussia Dortmund with his statement that “every time bad luck and lack of quality” meant, to think.
Even worse than the criticism from the management level, however, are the increasingly occurring doubters from the cabin that leak, that the relationship between team and coaching staff is at least cracked.
“There are different views on the game in terms of dominance. Not only can we always talk about having a lot of the ball, but we also have to get the results we need. “
Purely athletic that is also quite understandable, because after five defeats from the last seven second division games, the VfB professionals have lost a bit of confidence in Walter’s concept.
Due to these circumstances and the on Monday in every way existing pressure to win necessarily, we would definitely refrain between a forecast or a tip on the home side between VfB Stuttgart and Nuremberg.
This does not change the fact that the recent two home games against Dresden (3: 1) and Karlsruhe (3: 0) were made victorious. Previously, it was at home defeats against Wehen-Wiesbaden (1: 2) and Holstein Kiel (0: 1).
To make matters worse, that Tim Walter has to fight especially in the central defense with personnel problems. The regular starters Kaminski and Kempf are still missing injured and are represented by the Liverpool loan Phillips and by Holger Badstuber.
Speed disadvantages are therefore not to be dismissed out of hand and certainly one of the reasons why the Swabians are severely against deeply defensive and fast-counterattacking opponents.
As the Nurembergers on Monday will try their luck with switching situations, should be required for the slipped in fourth position Stuttgarter caution. In addition to Kaminski and Kempf missing Mack, Kalajdzic and Grözinger.
Expected formation of VfB Stuttgart:
➤ Kobel – P. Stenzel, Phillips, Badstuber, Sosa – Endo – Ascacibar, Castro – P. Förster, Didavi – Gomez

Nurenberg – Statistics & Current Form
The problems that VfB Stuttgart currently has would probably be welcome at the club in Nuremberg. The long-standing first division ranked in the table of the second league namely currently in the third to last place and must, as of now, even really fear to disappear completely from the scene of the best 36 professional clubs in the Federal Republic.
Admittedly, not even half of all games are completed, but even a change of coach has not yet shown the desired effect. Jens Keller has been the successor of Damir Canadi for two encounters since the end of Valznerweiher.
With the 0: 0 in his debut in the Franken Derby at SpVgg Greuther Fürth could be satisfied, but the embarrassing 0: 2 defeat last weekend against tail SV Wehen-Wiesbaden not only caused a new low to date disappointing season, but also for a big thunderstorm of their own fans.
Led by the new coach, the Nurembergers faced their own attachments and had to put in angry words. Not infrequently, however, such a cleansing thunderstorm has ensured a turnaround. The same we expect in the case of the Bundesliga scoop, which is of course qualitatively stronger than the table space says.
In general, we currently assume that the franc plays better abroad than at home. This can be justified on the one hand with the lower pressure of fan side, on the other hand however likewise in the fact that in the “descent fight” the own play in the coming weeks probably will be oriented more on the defensive work.
There it definitely applies, because 29 goals are one of the most vulnerable defenses of the entire lower house. It is interesting to see that most of the goals were collected at home (16).
The offense is also far more dangerous on opponent squares (14 hits) than at home (seven). Ninth in the away table with more points in fewer games than in front of their own fans (rank 17) complete the mentioned overall picture.
Apart from the factors already mentioned, such as the self-confidence or the mood within the team, there is also a statistical justification to take a closer look at the odds for the away win between VfB Stuttgart and Nuremberg. We consider a surprise to be by no means impossible.
The situation in the goal has not calmed down in the 1. FCN. With Patric Klandt, Andreas Lukse and regular keeper Christian Mathenia three goalies are injured. Felix Dornebusch will stand once more between the posts. Sorg, Margreitter and Misidjan must also fit. Changes compared to the 0: 2 against Wiesbaden are to be expected.
Expected formation of Nurenberg:
➤ Dornebusch – Valentini, Mühl, Sörensen, Handwerker – Jäger, Geis – Hack, Behrens, Kerk – Frey
Last matches of Nurenberg:
⚽️ 30.11.2019 – Nuremberg vs. Wiesbaden 0: 2 (2nd Bundesliga)
⚽️ 24.11.2019 – Fürth Vs. Nuremberg 0: 0 (2nd Bundesliga)
⚽️ 10.11.2019 – Nuremberg vs. Bielefeld 1: 5 (2nd Bundesliga)

The Swabians lost five of their last seven league games and dropped back to fourth place. The mood in the Mercedes city is tense and coach Tim Walter is increasingly criticized.
The demanded him dominantly ball possession football works well with smears, but it lacks the VfB goals. At the same time, the offensive approach has a negative effect on your own defense. Also due to the injured regulars in central defense played the relegated in the last seven games only once to zero.
