Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Bochum: Preview and Predictions

Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Bochum
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 6 April 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: ESPRIT arena (Dusseldorf).

The table-toppers ended the three-win streak on Monday evening when they fell 1-0 away at relegation strugglers Darmstadt 98. Can Flingeraner return on the winning ways when they are set to open the Matchday No 29 against Bochum in front of the home crowd?

The visitors will come into this high on confidence. They are unbeaten in last five league affairs and they’ve lost two on the bounce ahead of the trip to Dusseldorf. Robin Dutt has indeed managed to shift team’s fortunes around since taking charge in February. The former Bayer Leverkusen head coach can particularly be thrilled with Bochum’s attacking line. Die Unabsteigbaren has bagged five goals in back-to-back victories over Sandhausen and Eintracht Braunschweig. Nonetheless, maintaining such hot run of form will be a massive challenge against the leading team.

Fortuna have been almost impeccable at ESPRIT arena lately. Flingeraner have won four and drawn one of last five home outings in 2. Bundesliga. Furthermore, Friedhelm Funkel’s side has shown a fantastic attacking form in the process. They’ve notched an impressive four-goal tally in the previous home win over Arminia Bielefeld. Standard’s loanee Benito Raman has been particularly inspire of late. The Belgian striker has scored two goals in last two games and he is our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer pick here.

Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Bochum: Head-to-head

Bochum have been slightly more successful over the history.

Die Unabsteigbaren lead the head to head tie by six wins ahead of their 52nd encounter with Flingeraner.
