Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
In a clash marred by injuries and suspensions, Karlsruher SC faces Fortuna Dusseldorf in a pivotal 2. Bundesliga Round 22 encounter. The hosts, Karlsruher, are plagued by a string of absences, including players such as Dzenis Burnic, Eren Ozturk, Lars Stindl, Tim Rossmann, Efe-Kaan Sihlaroglu, and Daniel O'Shaughnessy. Meanwhile, Fortuna Dusseldorf have to deal with their own roster challenges as Jordy de Wijs sits out due to suspension, alongside sidelined players Daniel Bunk, Jamil Siebert, and Marcel Sobottka.
Despite the setbacks, both teams are poised to give their all on the field, each hungry for a crucial victory to boost their standings. However, given the circumstances and the apparent parity between the sides, a draw seems a likely outcome as they strive to overcome their personnel shortages and battle to a hard-fought stalemate. Anticipation is high as these resilient squads prepare to lock horns in a close 2. Bundesliga showdown.
