Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Werder Bremen
Date: Saturday, 27 April 2019
Kick-Off 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Merkur Spiel-Arena (Dusseldorf).
Mid-table neighbours Fortuna Dusseldorf and Werder Bremen will battle it out in the 31st round of Bundesliga on Saturday afternoon at Merkur Spiel-Arena. We have reasons to expect an open contest full of goal-scoring chances at both ends given the fact teams share a similar attacking-minded football philosophy.
Flingeraner just entered the top flight of German football last year. They began the campaign on a low, but grew in form confidently as time passed by. We can say Fortuna are definitely among most pleasant surprises of the entire competition this season. Friedhelm Funkel is doing a great job on the bench and his attacking-minded style has already caused plenty of problems to some German heavyweights.
Werder share a similar story. They had a subpar first half of the season, but emerged as a major force in Bundesliga after the winter break. Die Werderaner were actually unbeaten in 2019 before last weekend’s narrow 1-0 defeat to table-toppers Bayern Munich away at Allianz Arena.
Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Werder Bremen: Head-to-head
It’s been five years since these two likes last met each other before this term’s 3-1 victory for Werder Bremen at their Weserstadion.
Overall, the head to head tradition also suggests goals here as both teams found the back of the net in seven of last eight head to head ties.
Fortuna were slightly more successful in the history of home matches against Die Werderaner (9 wins to Werder’s 6 in 20 games).
Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Werder Bremen: Prediction
Judging by the current momentum, we have to say it goes in Werder’s favour. Flingeraner were struggling badly defensively in last two matches which saw them lose 1-4 to Bayern Munich and 3-1 at Mainz.
Dusseldorf shipped as many as eight goals in last three home outings in the league. This is why we fancy Werder to score two or more goals at the odds of 1.83. However, you should be careful with the stakes as Bremen’s top scorer Max Kruse has certain injury woes ahead of the tie and could actually skip the match at Merkur Spiel-Arena.
