Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
St. Pauli will be aiming to build on back-to-back wins over Arminia Bielefeld and Darmstadt when they take on Fortuna Dusseldorf in the 2. Bundesliga round 33. St. Pauli have been scoring goals for fun of late and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. All Maurides, Igor Matanovic, and Etienne Amenyido are out of contention with injuries, while both David Nemeth and Eric Smith are rated doubtful for the match.
Die Fortunen, on the other hand, continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels. Daniel Thioune’s troops have already suffered eight defeats on the road this season and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling St. Pauli’s party at Millerntor-Stadion. As for the visiting side, all Raphael Wolf, Rouwen Hennings, Ao Tanaka, and Jorrit Hendrix are sidelined through injuries.
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.
