FC Nurnberg vs Arsenal Match Details:
League: Club Friendlies
Venue: Max-Morlock-Stadoin, Nurnberg, Germany
Time: 13th July, 10.30 pm
Arsenal continue their pre-season duties as they travel to the Max-Morlock-Stadoin to face FC Nurnberg on Thursday. This would be hosts’ fourth pre-season friendly, after going undefeated in their first three contests. Nine-time champions of Germany between 1920 and 1968, Nurnberg have been consigned to life in the 2. Bundesliga for the last four seasons since a brief return to the Bundesliga in 2018-19.
Despite swift efforts by the German Der Ruhmreiche for a spot back in the Bundesliga, they have ended in abject failure over the past few years, ending the 2022-23 campaign in 14th place, just five points above Arminia Bielefeld in the relegation playoff place. His tenure this season has begun quite pleasantly though in pre-season, with two home wins against Pardubice and Diosgyor either side of a 2-2 away draw against Hartberg. Provided Thursday’s encounter is anywhere close to the eight-goal spectacular between these sides twelve months back, the spectators could be in for a treat.
Arsenal went through the 2022-23 Premier League campaign being top of the table for 248 days, before bowing down to the superiority of Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City – thus letting the neutrals give them the “bottlers” tag after their collapse in the business end of the season. In doing so, the Gunners set a new unwanted record for the most time spent at the top of the Premier League table without winning the title. However, Arteta before the start of last season would’ve aimed for a top-four finish, let alone finishing second – their best ever finish since the 2015-16 season.
Although they didn’t win any silverware last season, their 2nd place finish meant a long awaited return to the Champions League for the Gunners as the UCL anthem will soon be blasted at full volume inside the Emirates on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, just reward for Arteta’s admirable endeavours in North London over the past few years.
Arteta’s men got their pre-season campaign off against Watford that ended in a 1-1 draw, and will travel to the United States for blockbuster matches with the MLS All-Stars, Manchester United and Barcelona, before the latest iteration of the Emirates Cup against Monaco after their Thursday’s matchup against Nurnberg. The Gunners will be hoping to replicate the 5-3 victory over the Germans 12 months back, with Gabriel Jesus’ led brace helping them win despite letting the Germans have a 2-0 lead on the day.
