Nurnberg vs Arsenal: Prediction, kick off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results

Arsenal kick off their pre-season tour of Germany with a friendly against Nurnberg.

The Gunners beat Ipswich 5-1 last week but will see their season preparations step up a notch with new signings Gabriel Jesus, Marquinhos and Matt Turner all expected to feature for the first time.

Arsenal are based at the adidas headquarters and will face the second-tier German side, located nearby, on Friday.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Nurnberg vs Arsenal is scheduled for a 4.30pm BST kick-off on Friday, July 8, 2022.

Max-Morlock-Stadion in Nurnberg will host the match.

Arsenal‘s pre-season tour begins in Germany on Friday afternoon, as 2. Bundesliga side Nuremberg await the Gunners at the Max-Morlock-Stadion.

Mikel Arteta‘s side have already put five past Ipswich Town in a behind-closed-doors friendly at London Colney, while the hosts’ last exhibition contest ended in a 2-0 loss to WSG Tirol.


Match preview

Surprisingly, Mikel Arteta will not be the youngest manager on the touchline on Friday night, as Nuremberg prepare for another campaign under the tutelage of 37-year-old Robert Klauss after a bitterly disappointing end to the 2021-22 season.

The dominant force of German football in the 1920s, Nuremberg are now preparing for their fourth consecutive season of second-tier football after finishing in eighth position last term, failing to win any of their final five games in league action.

The nine-time Bundesliga champions have made sporadic appearances in the top flight over the past decade and will no doubt have their eyes on a promotion charge for the 2022-23 campaign, but the hosts’ pre-season period has been far from a cakewalk.

After claiming a 2-0 success away from home at Viktoria Aschaffenburg, Nuremberg were humbled 3-0 by Bulgarian powerhouses Ludogorets before being shut out in another loss to Austrian side WSG Tirol, so it has been no surprise to see Klauss welcome a host of new attackers to the club in the current transfer window.
