Match Preview

Nuremberg are currently on a run of six Bundesliga games without a win and have collected the fewest points of any team (two) over this period. There could be little respite in this encounter as Bayer Leverkusen come to a town, a team that have won the last five H2H meetings (including three of them here), with four of those victories coming with a margin of two or more goals.
The hosts have the weakest defence in the league (29 goals conceded), and have let in a staggering 19 goals in their last six games alone – an average of 3.17 per match. Their two victories so far have come at home (W2, D2, L2), however both were against teams that occupied the relegation spots.
Leverkusen have been inconsistent this season (W4, D2, L6), although they did end a two defeat streak with a 2-0 home victory over struggling Stuttgart in their last outing. On the road, Leverkusen were three Bundesliga trips unbeaten (W2, D1) before losing 3-0 to Leipzig last time out.
In a testament to what has been a poor campaign, Leverkusen’s 14 Bundesliga points so far is less than at this stage in any of their last eight top-flight seasons.
Players to watch: With two goals and one assist, Hanno Behrens is Nuremberg’s joint-top scorer, but is without a goal in his last four Bundesliga games.
Kevin Volland scored a brace in Leverkusen’s victory over Stuttgart last week. He now has five goals to his name.
Stat attack: Across their Bundesliga fixtures this season, both teams have seen an average of 3.5 goals (total) per match.
Leverkusen have kept three clean sheets in their last four H2H meetings with the hosts.
Nuremburg have lost both halves (L/L) four times this season (one third of their games in the league) – including in their last fixture.
