Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Hannover
Date: Saturday, 18 May 2019
Kick-Off 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Merkur Spiel-Arena (Dusseldorf).
Fortuna Dusseldorf and Hannover had two quite opposite campaigns in this term of Bundesliga. The hosts are definitely one of the most pleasant surprises as they will finish the season in the middle of the standings, far away from the relegation scrap. The Reds, on the other side, suffered a drop to second division football. They struggled badly to clinch results on travels where Hannover only claimed five points in 16 matches this season.
Flingeraner produced another strong performance last weekend when they fell narrowly (3-2) away at title chasers Borussia Dortmund. The head coach Friedhelm Funkel exploited immense talent in his team’s attacking line to the max this season. Dodi Lukebakio, Benito Raman and Rouwen Hennigs all enjoyed fabulous campaigns.
Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Hannover: Head-to-head
The head to head statistics favour the hosts here.

Flingeraner also claimed a 0-1 victory when they visited HDI-Arena in this term of Bundesliga.
Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Hannover: Prediction
Fortuna are capable of producing loads in the final third in front of their fans. They won four of last six home outings in the league scoring 12 goals in these victories. They lost badly to the likes of Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayern Munich in the meantime, but this tie with Hannover should really give them an opportunity to complete a very successful campaign on a high.
The visitors pulled off two wins in last three league rounds, but such form came a bit too late. They are six points shy of Stuttgart ahead of this final round fixture, meaning the aforementioned wins will count for little.
As mentioned above, Hannover were struggling badly to perform well on travels this season. They conceded league high 43 goals in 16 away matches. Fortuna to win in a high-scoring contest is the way to go.
