Dusseldorf vs Braunschweig: Prediction
The teams are in inconsistent form and this makes it difficult to pick an outright winner. However, Dusseldorf are slight favourites with their good home record over Braunschweig. Also, their morale will be boosted with the latest win away at Bochum. But, it is hard to write-off Braunschweig completely as they held teams to draws in 5 of their last 7 matches.
The best case scenario is to back the teams to settle for a draw here. Alternate options are both teams to score. Meanwhile, brave punters can go for a correct full-time score of 1-1, which is priced at a 6.40 odds with Unibet.
