Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Wolfsburg
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 13 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Merkur Spiel-Arena (Düsseldorf).
The unexpected draw that Wolfsburg had to face at home, and that too against the newly-promoted Paderborn, has knocked them back to the ground. After back-to-back wins to kick off their campaign, the team dropped points. And taking full advantage of the scenario, both Leipzig, and Bayern climbed up the table to settle in the first and second spots.
But all is not lost yet for Oliver Glasner’s men. The next match-day pits these current top two teams, and this is a great opportunity for the third-placed Wolfsburg to make one more pass at the top-most position.
Their job becomes a bit easier when it’s known that their opponents for the week are Dusseldorf. The hosts have lost both of their last two league fixtures and conceded twice or more in both as well.
Prima facie all Fortuna seem to have to lean on is the home advantage, and it surely is a pretty big ask, considering the determination and stature of the incoming guests.

Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Wolfsburg Prediction
Oliver Glasner’s men were unbeaten in their last 14 matches in a row and found the back of the net in all these 14 fixtures as well. On the road, they are on a four-game winning run and scored a total of 14 goals in the process. In addition, the team scored twice or more in three of the previous four overall fixtures as well.
Going on, with toppers Bayern and Leipzig taking on each other next, it’s a major opportunity for the guests to try and become the pole-position holder.
Moreover, despite the away handicap, the squad enjoys an unbeaten record against this opponent and has never failed to score against them. Also, and importantly, at this venue, the h2h record becomes 100% wins, and with the guests scoring thrice or more in every tie.
Finally, the hosts have lost their previous two league fixtures and conceded thrice in their most recent home tie alone.
As these observations suggest, the upper hand easily goes to the team from Lower Saxony, and a rather comfortable away win is in the burner.
