• Nürnberg have won six of their 10 Bundesliga home games against Braunschweig (D2 L2). FCN beat Eintracht 1-0 at home during the 1973/74 Regionalliga play-off round, but were eventually beaten to Bundesliga promotion by the Lions.
  • A win against Nürnberg could see Braunschweig move off the foot of the table for the first time since matchday 12. HSV would also have to fail to beat Dortmund for it to happen.
  • With nine points to their name, Nürnberg sit fourth place in a table based on results from 2014. Only four sides have scored more goals than them so far this year (Bayern and Dortmund with 13, Schalke and Augsburg with 9). Their tally of three goals conceded is bettered by just two teams (Bayern with 0 and Schalke with 2).
  • Five of Eintracht's last six goals have come from set-pieces, including three of the four they scored against HSV (one corner, two free kicks). Braunschweig scored just one set-piece goal in their first 16 games of the season.
  • Josip Drmic has scored 11 of FCN's 25 goals this season, including each of the last three. That is the highest percentage (44%) of goals scored for any club by a single player.
  • Nürnberg have picked up points in eight of the nine league games that Drmic has scored in (W3 D5) – in fact, they have won the last three games he has scored in. The only exception is their 3-1 loss to Gladbach in November.
  • In the game against HSV, Domi Kumbela became the seventh Bundesliga player in history to score a hat-trick after coming off the bench – Kumbela was brought on at half time.
  • Kumbela has scored in three Bundesliga games this season (five goals in total) – Braunschweig have won all three of those matches.
  • Nürnberg have collected 10 points in five games with Javier Pinola at centre back, conceding just three goals (including two against Bayern) and keeping three clean sheets. Including last season, FCN had gone 24 league games without a clean sheet before those five matches.
