• Frankfurt have won just one of their last five home games against Nürnberg (D3 L1). However, they have their noses in front in the head-to-head record after 54 meetings with 22 wins to 14 (18 draws).
  • Other than Freiburg, Nürnberg are the only side without a win after eight games. That has only happened to FCN once before in the Bundesliga, their first victory in the 1986/87 campaign came on matchday 10 (2-1 against Schalke).
  • Frankfurt haven’t won at home in their last four Bundesliga games, including last season (D2, L2). This is Eintracht’s 750th Bundesliga home match and a win would be their 400th at home in the top flight.
  • Nürnberg haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last 16 Bundesliga matches, with their most recent one coming in a 3-0 win over Schalke in March. The last time FCN had as bad a run as this was between May and November 2005; a run that lasted 18 games.
  • Frankfurt have converted just 26% of their clear-cut chances this season, the worst record in the league.
  • Nürnberg have allowed the most shots (157, almost 20 per game) and are only one of three sides (Freiburg and Hoffenheim) yet to keep a clean sheet. They have also conceded eight goals in their last two games.
  • Michael Wiesinger lost just one of his first 11 Bundesliga games with FCN but won just two of his last 14. His win percentage of 24% was the second worst in Nürnberg’s Bundesliga history (Wolfgang Wolf 22% - only includes managers in charge for at least 20 games).
  • Nürnberg’s Timothy Chandler was born in Frankfurt and played for Eintracht between 2001 and 2010. Opposition player Martin Lanig was in 1. FC Nürnberg’s U17s (1999-2001).
  • Johannes Flum is suspended for the match against FCN due to his sending off in Freiburg.
