• Hertha are without a win against Nürnberg in five Bundesliga games. Before their 2-2 draw earlier this season, Berlin had lost in four consecutive meetings. Hertha’s last victory over FCN was a 1-0 home win in May 2008.
  • Berlin have won just one of their last four Bundesliga home games – a 3-2 victory on matchday 16 against Bremen. Hertha failed to score in the other three games (D1, L2).
  • FCN are undefeated in four Bundesliga games. It’s their longest unbeaten run this season (W1, D3).
  • However, as part of their historic winless first half of the season, Nürnberg also failed to pick up a victory in their nine away matches (D6, L3) – their last top-flight win on the road was in May 2013 when they beat Düsseldorf 2-1.
  • Nürnberg have also conceded in each of their last 15 Bundesliga away games – their last clean sheet on the road was in a 0-0 draw against Frankfurt in February 2013.
  • Berlin have led Nürnberg in the Bundesliga on 15 occasions, with FCN able to come back and win just once. Hertha have won 13 of the other 14 games.
  • FCN have already hit the woodwork 16 times this season, a league-high by far. Hertha, on the other hand, have hit the post or crossbar just eight times.
  • Josip Drmic scored his first ever Bundesliga brace in the game against Hoffenheim and is Nürnberg’s top scorer with eight goals to his name. The Swiss striker has scored seven of FCN’s last 14 goals.
  • Nürnberg’s best assist provider (five) Hiroshi Kiyotake is set for his 50th Bundesliga game. The Japan international has six goals and 15 assists from his 49 league appearances for FCN.
  • Jos Luhukay has never beaten FCN in the Bundesliga. He may have recently secured a 2-2 draw as Hertha coach, but with his former club Augsburg, he lost three games (including 2 relegation play-off matches) and picked up just one draw.
