Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Following a 4-3 loss to Paderborn, Fortuna Dusseldorf will look to give fans some cheer when they take on Elversberg on Matchday 21. Die Fortunen are eager to keep their promotion hopes alive and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-oriented strategy in Saturday’s encounter. Poland forward Dennis Jazstrzembski is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute against Paderborn, while all Felix Klaus, Emmanuel Iyoha, Tim Oberdorf, Shinta Appelkamp, Jamil Siebert, and Marcel Sobottka should miss out with injuries.
Elversberg, on the other hand, did well to beat Kaiserslautern in their last league match, with the team putting an end to their five-game winless run. As Horst Steffen’s troops have been involved in some high-scoring games of late, we are tempted to put our money on over 2.5 goals. The likes of Kevin Conrad, Marcel Correira, and Patryk Dragon are injured for the away team.
Highlighted Team (Dusseldorf):
Founded on May 5, 1985, Fortuna Dusseldorf are a German side that compete in Bundesliga . The Fingeraner welcome their rivals at their Espirit Arena, the venue that was opened in 2004. The capacity of the stadium is 54,600, but the venue did not host 2016 FIFA World Cup games.
Fortuna Dusseldorf play home games in red shirts and red shorts, with the team wearing white shirts with red stripes and white shorts on the travels. The club did well to win the Western German championship in 1931 and two years later they lifted the trophy in the German championship, which is considered their biggest success.
Speaking of the German Cup, Fortuna Dusseldorf won the DFB-Pokal twice (1979, 1980), while making it to the final of the competition in 1937, 1957, 1958, 1962 and 1978. The likes of Paul Janes, Anton Turek, Stanislaus Kobierski, Klaus Allofs, Ernst Albrecht and Erich Juskowiak are some of notable footballers who played for the Fingeraner in the past.
