Friday's German Bundesliga sees Augsburg currently in 16th spot welcoming the visit of Nurnberg in 13th spot. At the moment there are seven points separating these two clubs which will make it a make or break case for Augsburg coming into this match.
Augsburg have picked up 12 points since the turn of the year, already doing better then they did compared to the nine they earned in the first 17 games of the season. They have recorded 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss in their last five games; their home record is 2 wins, 5 draws and 3 defeats in their last ten matches. After 24 played games; 4 wins, 9 draws and 11 losses they are in 16th spot.
Looking at their home form, they have failed to score on five occasions and managed to keep two clean sheets only. Their best striker is Sascha Mölders with 9 goals in his 14 appearances.
The visitors Nurnberg are currently unbeaten in their last five games - managing 1 win and 4 draws. They have only lost once since the start of the year but six draws out of their last nine games leave them with a lot of work to do if they are to stay in the Bundesliga for another season.
Their away form makes poor reading though as they have managed 4 draws and 6 losses in ten matches away from home. They currently lie 13th in the standings after 24 played games; 6 wins, 10 draws and 8 losses.
Nurnberg have failed to score six times on their travels and have only managed to keep two clean sheets. Their best striker is Sebastian Polter with 4 goals in his 22 appearances but he will not be able to play as he is suspended after picking up his 5th yellow card.
Better's Prediction: FC Augsburg : FC Nurnberg - 1 [6/10]
