Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Merkur Spiel-Arena will host Saturday’s football game between Fortuna Dusseldorf and St. Pauli, the two promotion-chasing sides. Fortuna are three points behind the playoffs berth and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-oriented strategy against St. Pauli. All Shinta Appelkamp, Jamil Siebert, and Marcel Sobottka are sidelined with injuries, while both King Samuel Manu and Dennis Gorka should miss out through illness.
The Hamburg-based side, on the other hand, kicked off 2024 in great manner, with the team beating Kaiserslautern 2-0 in front of home fans. Fortuna Dusseldorf, though, are tough to beat at home and that is the main reason why we are going to bet on draw this time out. Both Jackson Irvine and Connor Metcalfe are on international duty, speaking of the away team, while Scott Banks has yet to overcome an ACL 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.
