Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Dusseldorf and Schalke square off against each other at Merkur Spiel-Arena in the closing match of Saturday’s program. Dusseldorf aim to recover from back-to-back defeats to Wehen and Greuther Furth, but they face yet another tough challenge against Die Knappen. As all Appelkamp, Zimmermann, Ginczek, and Hoffmann remain on the sidelines with injuries, home win should not be considered.
The visitors, on the other hand, aim to recover from a 2-1 loss to Elversberg. As both sides are likely to adopt an attack-oriented approach in Saturday’s showdown, we believe that punters from all around the world can find value in betting on both teams to score. As for the away team, all Ouedraogo, Karaman, Fahrmann, Mohr, Muller, and Maza remain in the recovery room, while midfielder Ron Schallenberg is a major doubt as he has been struggling with illness of late.
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.
