Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Fortuna Dusseldorf will look to kick off 2023 in style when they take on Magdeburg on Friday evening. Dusseldorf were beaten by both Hannover and Kaiserslautern in the previous two league fixtures, but they are still in the race for promotion. All Andre Hoffmann, Emmanuel Iyoha, Kwadwo Baah, and Nicolas Gavory remain on the sidelines with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
Magdeburg, on the other hand, aim to escape the relegation zone, and a win over Fortuna should see them move away from the bottom three. However, home win should be considered as Daniel Thioune’s troops have been producing fine displays at home this season. As for the visiting side, both Jan Luca Schuler and Belal Halbouni miss out with injuries. In the first half of the season Fortuna Dusseldorf defeated Magdeburg 2-1, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
