MSV Duisbiurg vs Fortuna Dusseldorf: Preview and Predictions

MSV Duisburg vs Fortuna Dusseldorf
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 11 March 2018
Kick-Off at 12:30 UK
Venue: Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena (Duisburg).

MSV Duisburg’s promotional ambitions have suffered a huge blow last weekend when the Zebras fell 5-0 to direct rivals in the battle for the third place Holstein Kiel on the road. The head coach Ilia Grouev will thus have a very tough task improving the poor atmosphere in the dressing room ahead of another super important clash set to be played on Sunday when table-toppers Fortuna Dusseldorf are about to visit Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena.

Flingeraner have been miles away from the form they’ve had I the first half of the season lately, but they’ve managed to regain the very top of the league standings with a 2-1 victory over St. Pauli last time out. Center-back Andre Hoffmann and right-winger Takashi Usami notched early goals to secure a three pointer for Fortuna after three consecutive failures.

Friedhelm Funkel will, however, be worried ahead of the trip to Duisburg knowing that his men have shipped seven goals in last two league outings away from home. Dusseldorf’s defensive line will thus be under a massive pressure throughout the game, particularly if we know that the Zebras have notched two or more goals in all of last six home matches in the division.

Duisburg vs Dusseldorf: Head-to-head

Fortuna Dusseldorf lead the head to head tie by six wins coming into their 37th encounter with the Zebras.

Each of last four H2H ties has seen both teams on the scoresheet.

Flingeraner took a 3-1 victory when the two teams met in this term of 2. Bundesliga back in early-October last year.

Duisburg vs Dusseldorf: Prediction

Since both teams have been super vulnerable at the back lately, and since BTTS pick has “come in” in all of last four H2H encounters, we just have to back goals at both ends as the main betting call here at the odds of 1.72.

Since Duisburg are unbeaten in last six home matches in the league, we will alternatively back them not to lose here at the 1.40 odds.
