Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Max-Morlock-Stadion will host Saturday’s football game between Nurnberg and Fortuna Dusseldorf. The Bavarians head into the match following a hard-fought DFB Pokal win over Ulm, with the team eyeing their first victory of the new 2. Bundesliga season. Experienced attacker Manuel Schaffler should be recalled to the starting XI after finding the net in the 2-2 draw with Paderborn.
Fortuna Dusseldorf, on the other hand, rolled over lower-league side Oldenburg in the German Cup at the weekend. Fortuna have been having their ups and downs in the new 2. Bundesliga campaign, but seeing that Nurnberg are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of grabbing something from the match. Rouwen Hennings is widely expected to lead the line for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Hanno Behrens):
Hanno Behrens is a German footballer who was born in Elmshorn (West Germany) on March 26, 1990. Behrens played for the likes of FC Elmshorn 1920 and Hamburger SV before making his senior debut with Hamburger SV II in 2008. After scoring seven goals in 79 appearances for die Rothosen, Behrens joined SV Darmstadt 98 in 2012.
The defensive midfielder was part of Darmstadt from 2012 to 2015, when he signed a contract with 1. FC Nurnberg. The German footballer has been playing for der Ruhmreiche ever since and it is important to note that he scored 15 goals in 36 appearances for the club in 2. Bundesliga in the 2017/2018 season. Hanno Behrens did well to score for Nurnberg in a 2-0 win over Sandhausen on May 6, 2018, which helped the Bavarian side clinch promotion to the German top flight.
However, despite establishing himself as one of 1. FC Nurnberg key players, Hanno Behrens has yet to make his debut for Germany national team.
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.
