The Bulls thus rebounded from a tough defeat to Borussia Dortmund on the opening day of the new Bundesliga season and they’ll be looking to build on the continental competition success and get their domestic campaign up and running against the recently-promoted Fortuna Dusseldorf.

The visitors returned to the top flight after five years, but they instantly felt its strength, falling 1-2 at home to Augsburg in their maiden action last weekend.

Striker Benito Raman (notched ten goals last year in the second tier) pushed them in front six minutes before the break, but the defensive line did not hold on in the second half, allowing Fuggerstadter to turn things around with two goals and pick up a three-pointer from ESPRIT ARENA.

RB Leipzig vs Fortuna Düsseldorf: Head-to-head

The two teams played each other in successive seasons from 2014 to 2016 and Leipzig had a much greater success along the way.

The Bulls won three and drew one of four encounters against F95 bagging two or more goals in each of the matches in the process.

It is interesting to note that each of their four H2H games saw goals at both ends.

RB Leipzig vs Fortuna Düsseldorf Prediction

We could witness the continuation of such high-scoring head to head trend here based on the most recent set of displays from both sides.

Leipzig have a much more exciting talent in the final third, but their defense proved out to be way too vulnerable of late, shipping as many as seven goals in last two games against Borussia Dortmund and Zorya.

Fortuna will still need some time to adjust to the top flight football and Leipzig is just the place where they could hope to make the defensive line more solid.

The hosts are massive favourites, but since they’ve also been vulnerable at the back at the start of the season, we’ll shoot for the home win & BTTS as the main betting option at the odds of 2.87.
