• Freiburg haven’t lost in their last eight Bundesliga meetings with Nürnberg (W5, D3) – SCF’s longest unbeaten run against a particular side in their Bundesliga history.
  • In total, Nürnberg have won just three of their 16 Bundesliga matches against Freiburg (D5, L8) and only have a worse average Bundesliga points-haul against Fürth (0.5) and FC Bayern (0.76) than they do against SCF (0.88).
  • This match sees a meeting between the only two sides yet to win a Bundesliga game this season. Prior to this campaign, only eight teams had remained winless after 10 league games - 75% of them were relegated at the end of the season.
  • Apart from FCN and SCF, the only team without a league win this season from the top five European leagues is Almeria from Spain. (Correct prior to Almeria’s league game on 30.10).
  • FCN have been waiting 18 Bundesliga games for a clean sheet, the longest of any side in the league.The last time they conceded in as many consecutive games was 28 years ago, with a run of 28 matches without a clean sheet – a current club record.
  • No fireworks up front: this match sees a meeting between the two sides to have had the fewest shots this Bundesliga season – FCN have had 96, while SCF have managed just 85.
  • Or will we have fireworks? Only Bremen (186) have allowed more shots than Nürnberg (183) and Freiburg (160, the same as Braunschweig). In fact, FCN (72) and SCF (68) have allowed the most shots on target this season.
  • Unsurprisingly, only Nürnberg’s Raphael Schäfer (51) has made more saves than Freiburg’s Oliver Baumann this season (47).
  • Baumann was captain for the first time in the 3-0 defeat to HSV and was responsible for all three goals after catastrophic individual errors – something to last to happen to a Bundesliga keeper in 2010/11, as Gladbach’s Logan Bailly was responsible for 3 goals in a 7-0 loss to Stuttgart.
  • Nürnberg’s new signing Josip Drmic has scored FCN’s last two goals and has three in his last four games. The Swiss striker has scored four times this season – each game has ended in a draw.
