Apparently, there are only twelve kilometers between the Nuremberg and Fürth stadiums. That’s not much, but in terms of sport, a distance like this would be at least a class difference. That there could actually be in the next football season.
Five hits in wild Frankenderby: This is how the network reacts
Even if the 1. FC Nuremberg For once in the spring of 2021, the once small neighbor threatens to move away. Since Sunday afternoon and that 3-2 success in the 267th derby is the SpVgg Greuther Fürth actually leaders. Twelve places behind that that feel like twelve kilometers: the club. With a derby record in the past two decades that would also be suitable as material for a horror flick.
Pure frustration: The FCN was so shocked after the final whistle!
It was a day to forget for 1. FC Nürnberg: The Frankenderby lost in their own stadium, and Greuther Fürth also climbed to the top of the table with the victory. After the final whistle, the club went into shock – we have the emotional pictures!
The two comparisons within six days with the previous runners-up left 1. FC Nürnberg with mixed feelings. Much was missing after that 4: 1 in Osnabrück not even on Sunday so as not to lose at least. SpVgg Greuther Fürth, on the other hand, wanted to win.
Woke up too late: The FCN losers in the Derby criticism
The win in Osnabrück should have been the turning point for a club that had regularly stumbled up until then, but the derby and especially the Fürth came a little too early. For long stretches the Nuremberg team had problems following the pace of the Fürth game and only turned up a bit in the final phase. NZ sports editor Uli Digmayer provides the scores and individual reviews for the FCN players in the 2-3 derby defeat.
Franconia’s big traditional clubs differ mainly in their mentality. The quality of making a lot out of little also makes the people of Fürth right to dream of the first division. The Nuremberg club, after all with the fourth largest budget of all 18 clubs, is nightmaring about the third one again. Or still.
After a good quarter of the season, it is of course impossible to say where all of this will lead. Should Fürth get up and the club at least not get down, the people of Nuremberg would be rid of at least one of their worries. The derby after that would be in summer 2022 at the earliest.
Double Nielsen and FCN frustration: Kleeblatt wins ghost derby
In the 267th edition of the oldest derby in Germany, the FCN, which is still not on a firm footing, welcomes SpVgg Greuther Fürth, which goes into the important game with four wins in a row. Due to the pandemic, the Prestige Derby must of course also be played in front of empty ranks. The fans in front of the TV mainly see superior Fürthers, who at the end slacken off a bit, but despite last-minute chances for the club, they do not win undeserved 3-2 and jump to the top of the table. The pictures of the derby!
