Fortuna Düsseldorf vs Borussia Dortmund – Bundesliga Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction
This Saturday, Bundesliga continues as Match Day 31 gets underway with Fortuna Düsseldorf taking on Dortmund at the former’s home stadium, the Merkur Spiel Arena.
It will be Dortmund’s 31th league appearance of the season after a 1-0 victory over Hertha Berlin. That victory moved Dortmund to 2nd place on the Bundesliga table leaving them with back-to-back victories; LDLDWW. Dortmund has 19W, 6D and 5L in 30 league appearances. They have scored 81 times and conceded 35 goals which gives them a +46GD this season. Lucien Favre, coach of Hoffenheim is expected to use a 3-4-2-1 formation once again with Jadon Sancho who has 17 goals and 16 assists expected to play a key part. Thorgan Hazard who has 7 goals and 13 assists this season will also be looking to continue his fine form. Both players will be key for Dortmund when they face Fortuna Düsseldorf on Saturday.
Meanwhile, it will also be Fortuna Düsseldorf’s 30th league match of the season. They managed to secure a point in a draw against Hoffenheim (2-2) last weekend. Düsseldorf have lost just once in their last six Bundesliga matches; DDDWLD. They are in 16th place and at risk of relegation. Uwe Rösler knows he has to get a positive result when he faces Dortmund on Saturday. Fortuna have earned only 28 points from 30 Bundesliga appearances. With a goal scoring ratio of 1.1 they have managed 6W, 9D and 14L from those 30 league appearances this season. They have also scored 31 goals and conceded 58 — leaving them with a GD of -27. Rösler adopted a 4-1-4-1 formation against Hoffenheim and his side looked solid for the most part. It looks likely he might adopt the same formation once again on Saturday. Top scorer, Rouwen Hennings who has 14 goals is set to lead Fortuna’s attack.
The first leg back in November saw Dortmund defeat Fortuna, 5-0. Dortmund has also won four of the last six matches involving both sides.
We predict 1-3 at fulltime in favor of Dortmund.
