Fortuna Dusseldorf vs FC Koln Prediction
The hosts were deprived of back to back wins in the league last week after Paderborn posted a comfortable 2-0 victory in their favor. Nevertheless, Fortuna Dusseldorf will be welcoming FC Koln this weekend on the back of an impressive two-match winning streak at home, the most recent of which was a 2-1 win over Erzgebirge Aue in the DFB Pokal.
It is also worth mentioning that the hosts have been faring a lot better in the comforts of their home. They have been at the losing end in just one of their last three Bundesliga games here, garnering four points from a possible nine in the process.
On the other hand, FC Koln were stunned by Saarbrucken in their respective DFB Pokal fixture, after the latter registered a 3-2 scorecard at the end of the ninety minutes. The away side are also without a win in their last three outings in the top flight and have come out on top just once in their previous five as well.
Be that as it may, the hosts have not exactly hit the ground running at home, and have already shared the spoils in one of their previous three clashes here. With FC Koln salvaging a point in one of their last two outings as well, the safest punt would have to be a double chance backing hosts Fortuna Dusseldorf.
Furthermore, irrespective of the final outcome, the home team have been consistent in getting their names on the scoresheet in each of their matchups here so far. Taking into account that FC Koln have also found the back of the net in their previous two trips on the road, it is certainly well within reason to expect goals down each end.
