Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
After suffering elimination in the German Cup last 16, Fortuna Dusseldorf will look to give fans some cheer when they take on Sandhausen on Sunday. Dusseldorf continue with their old habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels, and, as a result, the bookies see them as favourites to win this match. All Michal Karbownik, Matthias Zimmermann, Niko Vukancic, Kwadwo Baah, and Nicolas Gavory are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The Black and Whites, on the other hand, aim to recover from the DFB Pokal defeat to Sandhausen, but seeing that they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Darmstadt, we are tempted to put our money on the home side. Defender Bashkim Ajdini is banned for the match, while forward Kemal Ademi misses out with injury.
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.
