Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Tuesday’s football game at Merkur Spiel-Arena pits together Fortuna Dusseldorf and Hamburger SV, the two promotion-chasing sides. Fortuna have been impressive on home soil in the 2020/21 2. Bundesliga campaign, with the team recording six wins and two draws in the process. Uwe Rosler’s troops have been scoring goals for fun of late, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. HSV, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Osnabruck (5-0) and Braunschweig (4-2).
Since the league leaders have been impressive in front of goal of late as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. A man to watch in the away team will be top scorer Simon Terodde, while HSV defenders should have Turkey international Kenan Karaman at bay as he has netted six goals so far this term.
