Fortuna Dusseldorf was placed at 16th position. They made 12 points in the table. They made 16 goals and 12 assists. While RB Leipzig was placed at 2nd position. They made 30 points in the table. They made 39 goals and 27 assists.RB Leipzig won 4-0 on their last visit to Dusseldorf in January and a similar scoreline would not be surprising on Saturday evening.
Ayhan is available again after suspension but is struggling with a knee injury sustained in training this week, while Barkok is also doubtful. Morales is suspended having accumulated five yellow cards so Fink is likely to be recalled, with fit-again Sobottka also an option in midfield.
Ilsanker and Halstenberg were also not involved in midweek and could be recalled at the back, with centre-backs Konate and Orban still sidelined.
