• Bayern have only lost one of their last 21 meetings with FCN (W13, D7) – a 3-0 defeat in February 2007 in Nürnberg. FCN are without victory in the last 11 Bundesliga meetings (D4, L7).
  • However, Bayern have only won one of their last six away games against Nürnberg (1-0 in March 2012), drawing four and losing once. They also haven't scored more than once in any of those games.
  • Bayern have won 37 of their last 38 Saturday afternoon kick-offs – the only time they dropped points in that timeframe was in their 1-1 draw with Nürnberg in November 2012.
  • Bayern have collected 53 of a possible 57 points. That is the highest amount ever in the Bundesliga after 19 games – the previous record was 50 points set by FCB in 2005/06.
  • In Bayern (6 points, 7:0 goal record) and Nürnberg (6 points, 7:1 goal record), the two best sides in the second half of the season meet in this match. It's FCN's best ever start to the second half of a Bundesliga campaign – remarkably, coming after a winless first half.
  • FCB have a 13-point lead over Leverkusen at the top of the table. It is the biggest advantage a first-placed side has ever had after 19 Bundesliga games. In fact, it's the biggest ever gap between two neighbouring sides in the table at this stage of the season.
  • Bayern have only conceded three second-half goals, fewer than any other side. Together with HSV, Nürnberg have conceded the most goals after the break this season (both 25).
  • With 187 touches of the ball and 158 passes, Thiago set two new Bundesliga records since Opta started collecting details statistics in 2004/05 during Bayern's 5-0 win over Frankfurt.
  • Josip Drmic has scored braces in each of his last two games. The last FCN player to have a two-figure tally for goals scored after 19 games was Marek Mintal in 2004/05 with 14.
