1.FC Nurnberg coach Gertjan Verbeek has warned fans not to expect his side to produce a Manchester United-esque performance against Bayer Leverkusen tomorrow.

Leverkusen were thrashed by Manchester United 5-0 in midweek Champions League action, but Nurnberg will take on Sami Hyypia's men with expectations tempered by Verbeek, who is still seeking his first win as Der Club coach since taking over in late October.


"We have our tactics ready to play Leverkusen and eventually, hopefully, win", Verbeek told Bild.

"Bayer are strong, but they also have weaknesses.


"We are not Manchester United, but Hertha Berlin and Hamburg have shown how you can cause Leverkusen pain."

Nurnberg presently sit second bottom in the Bundesliga, having collected just eight points from 13 matches so far.

Der Club remain the only team in the German top flight not to win a match this term.
