• Nürnberg have beaten Wolfsburg away from home four times in their last nine attempts (D3 L2) and have collected an average of 1.5 points per away game against VfL, a Bundesliga high for FCN (at least 10 away matches required).
  • Nürnberg have lost six of their last seven Bundesliga games (W1), including each of their last three away matches. The last time FCN suffered a run of four straight away defeats was from September to November 2012.
  • No Bundesliga side has gone as long as Nürnberg without sharing the points (12 games), with FCN's last draw coming against Schalke on matchday 17 (0-0). However, Nürnberg still remain the side with the most draws in the Bundesliga this season (11).
  • Wolfsburg have scored at least once in each of their last 21 Bundesliga games – currently the longest goalscoring run in the league. They have also matched their club record – the only other time VfL have scored in 21 straight top-flight games was from October 2009 to April 2010.
  • However, VfL have only kept a clean sheet in one of their last 14 Bundesliga matches (in a 3-0 home win against Mainz 05 on matchday 20).
  • FCN also had just 26 points after 29 games in the 2007/08 season and were relegated as the third-bottom side (no relegation play-off back then). The only time they have had fewer points at the same stage of the season was in the 1983/84 campaign (20), which also ended in relegation.
  • FCN have hit the woodwork 24 times this season and have already set a new record for the most shots against the post or crossbar in a Bundesliga campaign. The previous record since Opta started collecting this statistic in 2006/07 was held by BVB (23 times, 2011/12).
  • With 10 goals to his name, Josip Drmic is the top goalscorer in the second half of the season. The Swiss striker has scored 16 of FCN's 34 goals this season (including eight of their last 12) – no other player has been involved in as big a share of a side's goals (47%).
  • Javier Pinola is set for his 200th game in Germany's top flight. He has scored five goals and provided nine assists in 199 games so far (all for FCN). He has picked up 62 yellow cards in his career – more than any other Nürnberg player.
  • Wolfsburg manager Dieter Hecking coached FCN for 112 competitive games between January 2010 and December 2012 and left them for VfL in the winter break of 2012/13.
