I need to achieve a specific style of citing which I can't seem to recreate with biblatex. I'd be happy if you could help me with this:

Citations have to be numeric superscript with footnotes containing the author year and page.

This is an example sentence1.

And the footnote has to look like this:

1Pallhuber 1978, S. 75


Surname, Lastname: Title, Publisher, Year

    Hello, please post a compilable code snippet so we can help you using your code as base work. Could this post help ? – BambOo Apr 4 '18 at 19:06

Thanks to BambOo I found my solution:


Using \footcite[page 16]{book}

  • Is there any reason why you use style=numeric, citestyle=authoryear-icomp, and not the more conventional style=authoryear-icomp,? It makes little sense to have the numbers in the bibliography if they are not used in the text. – moewe Apr 4 '18 at 21:36
