Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Fortuna Dusseldorf will be looking to regain their spot in top three when they take on Paderborn at Benteler Arena. Fortuna have been producing splendid displays of late, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive triumph in the German second tier. Uwe Rosler’s troops impressed in the victory over St. Pauli, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as favourites to beat Paderborn.
Steffen Baumgart’s men are stuck in the middle of the standings, and seeing that they have little to play for in the season finale, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Fortuna. Even though Paderborn right-back Frederic Ananou has overcome his injury, we do not believe that the mid-table hosts are capable of grabbing something from Saturday’s clash. You should know that Fortuna Dusseldorf are eyeing their third consecutive win on the road.
