• Stuttgart are unbeaten in their last five meetings with Nürnberg (W2, D3), with FCN’s last win against VfB coming in February 2011 thanks to a 4-1 victory.
  • Nürnberg have lost four Bundesliga games in a row for the first time since last season (matchdays 29 to 32).
  • After 10 games in a row without victory (D2, L8), Stuttgart got back to winning ways last weekend, beating fellow relegation candidates HSV 1-0.
  • Nürnberg have won each of their last four Bundesliga home games that have taken place on a Wednesday. VfB have won just one of their last seven Bundesliga away games on a Wednesday (D3, L3).
  • Stuttgart have collected just one point from their last six away matches – after suffering five straight defeats, VfB secured a 1-1 in Bremen in mid-March.
  • 49 goals conceded after 26 games – a record FCN last had in 2004/05. The last time FCN conceded more goals at this stage was in the 1983/84 season (54), which ended in relegation.
  • Just 11 points from their first 13 home games is Nürnberg’s worst home record in their Bundesliga history. In the 2004/05 season, they had the same record, although their goal difference was much better (-3 as opposed to currently -11).
  • Stuttgart (16) have conceded the most goals in the final 15 minutes of matches. Nürnberg have conceded the second-most goals in that timeframe (14).
  • Josip Drmic scored his 13th goal of the season in the match against Frankfurt and is now FCN’s best goalscorer since their return to the Bundesliga. Drmic has been involved in seven of Nürnberg’s last eight goals (5 goals, 2 assists).
