Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Werder Bremen Prediction

Fortuna Dusseldorf pulled off a 2-1 win over Union Berlin in their last clash at home. The victory, however, was just their first in seven games and their only taste of success in the last two months.

To be frank, the hosts are yet to get into their stride this season. Currently, they are dwelling in the relegation zone with just fifteen points to their name.

Meanwhile, Werder Bremen are two points adrift of the home team at the moment and are just one shy of hitting rock bottom in the cluster. The guests have been at the losing end in each of their past four clashes in the Bundesliga, the most recent of which was a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Koln.

To make matters worse, the visiting contingent have emerged victoriously just once in their last four outings on the trot.

It is also worth mentioning that Fortuna Dusseldorf have not stumbled at home against a side dwelling in the bottom half of the ladder. Taking into account that they are also unbeaten in their past two meetings with this foe here, Werder Bremen’s chances of securing the bragging rights are certainly looking bleak.

Be that as it may, the guests have shared the spoils thrice in their travels this term. Hence, the safest punt would have to be a double chance in this one.

Furthermore, Fortuna Dusseldorf have been a nervous bunch in their own defensive third. Miserably, they have conceded fourteen goals at home so far.

On the other hand, fifteen of the twenty-three goals for Werder Bremen this season have come from their clashes on the road. Taking into account that both teams have also found the back of the net together in each of their last two h2h meetings here, expect neither side to keep a clean sheet this weekend.
