Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Fortuna Dusseldorf and Ingolstadt take on each other at Merkur Spiel-Arena in the 2. Bundesliga round 25. Fortuna have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team beating both Schalke and Aue, while sharing the spoils with Regensburg. Midfielder Adam Bodzek is sidelined with injury, but he should be the only absentee in the home team. Ingolstadt, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom of the table with 15 points in their pocket.
The rock-bottom side have slim chances of securing the 2. Bundesliga survival, but the hope dies last. Anyhow, home win should be considered as all Neuberger, Heinloth, Ben Balla, Schrock, and Ginola Elva are sidelined through injuries. In the first half of the season Fortuna Dusseldorf defeated Ingolstadt 2-1, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.
