Fortuna Dusseldorf vs RB Leipzig Prediction

Fortuna Dusseldorf admitted their biggest defeat of the season yet after Borussia Dortmund slotted five unanswered goals past them on the road last week. The hosts are now without a win in their past four games on the trot, two of which have now seen them lose by a four-goal margin or more.

With no more than three measly wins to their name so far, the home side have been consigned to the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, RB Leipzig have been faring a lot better in their respective domestic campaign. Their last fixture at home saw them take down Hoffenheim with a 3-1 scorecard, prior to which they edged past Paderborn with a 3-2 scoreline.

It is also worth mentioning that RB Leipzig are on a five-match winning streak at the moment in the Bundesliga. To pile on even more misery for Fortuna Dusseldorf, RB Leipzig have been branded as the best away side in the cluster. They have stumbled just once in their last seven outings, garnering sixteen points from a possible twenty-one in the process.

Taking into account that they have also been recording back to back wins in their last two visits here, Fortuna Dusseldorf will need nothing short of a miracle to cause an upset this weekend.

Furthermore, despite the positive form on the road, the visitors have been a nervous bunch in their own defensive third. They have conceded no less than two goals in each of their last three outings, and have kept a clean sheet just once in their past six as well.

On the other hand, Fortuna Dusseldorf have found the back of the net in five of their previous six clashes on home soil. Moreover, two of their previous three h2h meetings here have also witnessed the hosts get their names on the scoresheet.

As such, count on Fortuna Dusseldorf to bag a consolation goal at the least in this one.
