• Frankfurt have lost just two of their last 14 away games against Nürnberg (W6, D6).
  • There has never been a sending-off in the 55 Bundesliga meetings between Frankfurt and Nürnberg. It’s the most-played fixture that has yet to see a referee award a red card.
  • After winning four of their opening five games after the winter break, Nürnberg have now suffered three successive defeats – that last happened in April/May 2013 (a run of 4 straight losses).
  • Eintracht are the only side alongside FC Bayern yet to suffer a defeat after taking the lead. Nürnberg have collected 13 points from losing positions this season – only Augsburg, Bayern (both 15), Schalke and Wolfsburg (both 14) have claimed more.
  • Frankfurt have won just three of their 12 Sunday games this season (D3, L6).
  • 73% of the goals that FCN have conceded (32 of 44) have come in the second half – a league-high proportion.
  • Nürnberg have scored just four goals in the final 15 minutes of games – only Frankfurt have netted fewer in that timeframe (3).
  • Only Braunschweig (8.5%) have a worse chance-conversion rate than Frankfurt (10.9%) and Nürnberg (11.3%). In terms of converting clear-cut chances, only Braunschweig (31%) have been less clinical than the Eagles (33%).
  • Nürnberg hit the woodwork for the 22nd time this season during their game against Hamburg, a league-high by far. Since Opta started collecting this statistic in 2006/07, the season high lies at 23 (Dortmund 2011/12).
  • Armin Veh could celebrate his 100th Bundesliga win as a manager. He hasn’t faced any club in competitive matches as often as a manager as Nürnberg (21 times).
  • Josip Drmic has scored 12 of FCN’s 28 league goals – only Berlin’s Adrian Ramos has also scored as high a percentage of a club’s goals (both 43%). Drmic has been involved in each of the last six Nürnberg goals (4 goals, 2 assists).
