Hoffenheim vs Fortuna Dusseldorf Prediction
Hoffenheim were stunned in their last clash at home after Mainz pulled off a thumping 5-1 win over the hosts. The landslide defeat was the home side’s first in seven games in all competitions and it was also their biggest defeat of the season yet.
Nevertheless, Hoffenheim are still in contention to break into the top five and are just five points adrift of table-toppers Borussia Monchengladbach as of now.
Meanwhile, with no more than eleven points to their name, Fortuna Dusseldorf have found themselves lurking in the relegation zone. The away side are without a win in their last two games on the trot, the most recent of which saw them at losing end of a whopping 4-0 scorecard. That too, at the hands of the mighty Bayern Munich.
It is also worth noting that Fortuna Dusseldorf have been struggling to get things going for them on the road. The guests have not had a taste of success in their previous four outings, and have admitted defeat thrice in the process too.
Given that they have also failed to secure the bragging rights in their past two visits here as well, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Hoffenheim in this one.
Furthermore, the hosts have had their scoring boots on in their clashes at home, and have found the back of the net six times from their last three matchups alone. On the other hand, Fortuna Dusseldorf have been consistently conceding two goals or more in each of their previous four outings.
With nine of the fourteen goals for the visitors so far also coming from their trips on the road, expect nothing short of a high scoring affair this weekend.
