Despite losing its key players during the Bayern Munchen clash, the strong Nurnberg were still able to pull off a victory against Augsburg and move higher in the Bundesliga table.


Nurnberg moved away from the danger zone with class as they clinched a victory against Augsburg. The club put a stop to their opponent’s unbeaten home run, installing another major upset, which rocked Germany’s top-flight league.
