In the table, the club is now in eighth place with 29 points as the first team with a negative goal difference (-9), but could be overtaken by Karlsruhe, Elversberg and Hertha at the weekend. However, all three teams mentioned play away. Wiesbaden moved ahead of Hertha and is eleventh (27 points).

Game one goes to the club

The first half of the midfield game in the 2nd Bundesliga clearly went to Nuremberg. Erik Wekesser (9th), Taylan Duman (32nd, 36th) and Goller (36th) missed good scoring opportunities for the Franconians. This took immediate revenge in the second half of the game: After a break in protest from the fans against the further commercialization of the professional leagues in Germany, Prtajin struck.

FCN goalkeeper Carl Klaus played a risky pass to his director Florian Flick, but he was unable to control the pass. Thijmen Goppel splashed the ball and fed his strike colleague Prtajin. With a precision shot from around 16 meters, the Croatian placed the ball between the gap that opened up between the right post and the outstretched arm of the keeper. Untenable.

The deficit wakes up Nuremberg

The shock seemed to wake up coach Cristian Fiel’s team: Nuremberg took control of the game again. This was rewarded: After a Duman corner, Wekesser crossed from the right into the storm center, where Marquez artistically headed to equalize. In the final phase, Prtajin missed the winning goal with a header (90th + 3).

After already missing a three-pointer against Osnabrück, the Franconians didn’t reward themselves this time either and are still stuck in midfield with no direction. Markus Kauczinski’s contractions Wiesbaden are rewarded and are now seven points ahead of the relegation place.
