Ingolstadt vs Nurnberg Betting Tips and Match Preview – 04/05/2015
|No escape of defeat for Nurnberg!|
Ingolstadt controlled the majority of the match away to Union Berlin last weekend, and did well to fight back to draw 2-2 after the hosts struck twice. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s troops are unlikely to be as lax defensively this week, however, as their record on home turf is excellent (W9 D4 L2).
The Bavarians have a five-point lead at the top of the standings and are seven ahead of Karlsruher in third place, so if other results go their way then victory here could guarantee them automatic promotion. Motivation will therefore not be a problem.
Nuremberg finally ended a seven-game winless streak on Matchday 30 with a 2-0 triumph over Sandhausen. Rene Weiler’s men didn’t play particularly well but were aggressive in the tackles and defended well in numbers at the back. Victory leaves them in ninth place, ten points above the drop zone, so they are all but safe for another season.
Away from home Der Club are poor and have lost their last three games on the road, taking their tally to a league-worst ten away defeats for the season. Given Ingolstadt’s strength at the Audi-Sportpark and their push to be crowned champions, I believe this one will end in a home win.
Ingolstadt boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has virtually a full squad available to him for Monday’s fixture as Brazilian duo Roger and Danilo are available again following suspension, while Robert Bauer shook off ankle trouble to play on Matchday 30.
However, centre-back Marvin Matip will play no further part this season after damaging his shoulder against Union Berlin on Matchday 30, joining Danny da Costa and Christian Eigler in the treatment room.
Injured/Unavailable: da Costa (broken tibia), Eigler (knee), Matip (shoulder)
Nurnberg’s Jurgen Mossmer sat out last week’s 2-0 victory over Sandhausen through suspension, but he is not expected to play again in 2014/15 due to a troublesome ankle complaint.
Sebastian Kerk is pushing for a place in the starting line-up after shrugging off a knock to come off the bench and open the scoring against Sandhausen, and he could oust Peniel Mlapa from the team after another disappointing showing from the striker.
Robert Koch and Manuel Bihr were both included in the Matchday 30 squad following injury, so are likely to feature again here, but coach Rene Weiler still has a number of absentees to contend with, chief among them captain Jan Polak.
Doubtful: Polak (thigh)
Injured/unavailable: Gebhart (groin), Evseev (back), Fullkrug (knee), Mossmer (ankle)
RECOMMENDATION: HOME WIN
