Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Bayern Munich
Date: Sunday, 14 April 2019
Kick-Off 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Merkur Spiel-Arena (Dusseldorf).
Bayern Munich finally produced when they needed most last weekend. They demolished direct rivals for the title Borussia Dortmund 5-0 at Allianz Arena to regain the leading position in the Bundesliga standings after a shocking slip-up in a 1-1 draw away at Freiburg in the previous away fixture.
The defending champions thus bagged five goals in each of last two official games, following a crazy 5-4 victory over lower-division Heidenheim in DFB Pokal quarter-final last week. Bayern are now one point clear at the top of the standings with a rather easy schedule all up until last two rounds when they will meet RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt.
Nevertheless, Niko Kovac and his men first have to complete the job on Sunday afternoon when they are set to tackle in-form Fortuna Dusseldorf away at Merkur Spiel-Arena.
Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Bayern Munich: Head-to-head
Bayern Munich will take this match seriously knowing they slipped-up just against Fingeraner in the first half of the season (a 3-3 draw at Allianz Arena).
We should be in for a true goal fest here judging by the most recent head to head results.
There were five or more goals scored in each of last four head to head clashes between these two likes.
The Bavarians won five and drew two of last six meetings with Flingeraner.
Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Bayern Munich: Prediction
Fortuna will be anything but naïve opposition to reigning champions here. The hosts have been in great touch lately and they come into this off the back of two impressive wins over Borussia Monchengladbach (3-1) and Hertha BSC (1-2).
Dusseldorf won three of last four home fixtures in the league and they’ve notched at least two goals in each of these wins along the way. Knowing that Bayern Munich allowed four goals in the mentioned cup victory against Heidenheim, we would not be surprised to see the hosts on the scoresheet as well.
