Nuremberg wrapped up their promotion into the first division after grabbing a crucial 2-0 victory over Sandhausen at the 33rd round of Bundesliga’s second division on Sunday.
The “Club” promote for the eighth time into the top flight, which is a new record, as their advantage atop the standings is sufficient to secure their first-division status with one round to spare.
Nuremberg reaped a 2-0 victory on the road, as goals from Hanno Behrens and Tim Leibold were enough to edge Sandhausen.
“It will take a few days before I realize what we have achieved,” Nuremberg head coach Michael Koellner said.
Front runners Nuremberg and runners-up Dusseldorf will directly promote for the Bundesliga meanwhile third placed Holstein Kiel will have to play two promotion play-off matches against a top-flight team. Enditem
