Freud and Nietzsche

I see many similarities between Nietzsche and Freud, mainly through their common nihilistic thread. The thought that God is dead is essentially Nietzsche's, however I would argue that Freud shares this belief. I don't know if Freud was necessarily an atheist, but this pessimistic view of life is something that Freud may have. What do you guys think about their similarities?
