Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Fortuna Dusseldorf will look to climb to the promotion places when they take on Osnabruck in the 2. Bundesliga round 9. Dusseldorf are eyeing their third home win of the process, but they will have to do it without suspended defender Matthias Zimmermann this time out. Both Andre Hoffmann and Marcel Sobottka are sidelined with injuries, while Dutch forward Vincent Vermeij is pushing for a recall to the starting XI.
The Purple-Whites, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom of the table with only five points on their account. Given Osnabruck’s shaky defence and difficulties on the road, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match. Defensive duo Oumar Diakhite – Timo Beermann is injured for the visiting team as well as midfielder Emeka Oduah. In their last encounter at the venue Dusseldorf outplayed Osnabruck 3-0.
Highlighted Team (Dusseldorf):
