Did you know that…
…Nuremberg are one of TSG's favourite foes?
Hoffenheim have a strong record against Nuremburg, having won six and drawn three of the 12 previous competitive meetings between the teams. TSG have averaged 1.6 points per match against FCN. Only against Hannover (2.1) and Augsburg (1.9) do they have a higher points-per-game average.
…"der Club" are winless in 18 Bundesliga matches?
Their poor run of form in the league has seen Nuremberg drop to the bottom of the Bundesliga table. Their last victory in the top-flight came on 29 September 2018 when they beat Fortuna Düsseldorf 3-0.
…Nuremberg have the division's worst attacking record?
The 1. FC Nuremberg fans have only seen their side find the net on 18 occasions this season. No other Bundesliga club have scored fewer goals than the Franconians.
…Joelinton is one of the best Brazilians in Europe?
The striker's goal in the last game against Eintracht Frankfurt was his 11th of the current campaign. The 22-year-old has also claimed seven assists this term too, taking his tally for the season to 18 scorer points. That makes him the third-best Brazilian in Europe's top five leagues, ahead of his former team-mate Roberto Firmino (Liverpool, 16). Only Neymar (Paris St. Germain, 29) and Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City, 21) have been involved in more goals than Joelinton.
…Oliver Baumann has never lost against Nuremberg?
The TSG shot-stopper has previously faced FCN eight times in the Bundesliga and has the best record against "Der Club" of anyone in the current Hoffenheim squad (W5 D3).
