Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Greuther Furth will look to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Karlsruher when they take on Fortuna Dusseldorf in Saturday’s “matinee”. The Cloverleaves have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team producing much better showings at home than on the travels, and it has to be noted that they are eyeing their fourth consecutive win on home soil. Forward Robin Kehr is sidelined with an ACL injury, while Max Christiansen is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
The visitors, on the other hand, were beaten by both Hannover (0-2) and Paderborn (1-4) in the last two away games, and given Greuther’s fine winning run at home ground, we do not believe that Daniel Thioune’s troops are capable of grabbing something from the match. To make things even worse for the visiting side, key attacker Dawid Kownacki has joined the likes of Karbownik, Zimmermann, Vukancic, Baah, and Gavory in the recovery room.
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.
