Borussia Dortmund vs Fortuna Dusseldorf
Date: Saturday, 11 May 2019
Kick-Off 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Signal-Iduna-Park (Dortmund).
Borussia Dortmund all but gave up the title contest after clinching just one point from past two league affairs. They fell 2-4 at home to Schalke 04 before drawing 2-2 away at Werder Bremen last weekend. BVB, who spent most of the season at the very top of the standings, are now four points behind reigning champions Bayern Munich with just two matches left to play.
Lucien Favre’s men will try and secure a victorious farewell from their fans on Saturday afternoon when they play host to Fortuna Dusseldorf in the last home fixture of the campaign. We should be in for a super-entertaining affair packed with goals and chances at both ends knowing about Fortuna’s attacking-minded style in recent weeks as well.
Dortmund vs Fortuna Dusseldorf Head-to-head
Dortmund suffered one of rare losses in the first half of the season just against Flingeraner (2-1 back in mid-December last year).
These two likes also played each other in a mid-season friendly in January this year when BVB clinched a 3-2 victory.
Both teams scored in six of past seven head to head encounters.
Dortmund vs Fortuna Dusseldorf Prediction
Friedhelm Funkel can be thrilled with the campaign his men enjoyed in this term of Bundesliga. Fortuna Dusseldorf well confounded their pre-season ambitions after joining the elite class of the German football last summer.
Flingeraner hold sky-high 10th place and are miles away from the relegation scrap. They demolished Werder Bremen 4-1 before drawing 1-1 away at Freiburg in past two rounds. Fortuna are on a run of seven successive outings which saw both teams scoring.
Given Dortmund allowed six goals in past two league fixtures, we would not be surprised to see the BTTS trend continued for the visiting outfit here. The main bet is Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score at 1.66, while you can alternatively seek for the value in backing two or more goals in the first half at 1.80.
