Prediction published on June 10, 2020 at 9:13 PM - Modified on June 10, 2020 at 9:22 PM
A total of 12 points are still up for grabs for teams in the German Bundesliga and this weekend among the matches lined up, Fortuna Dusseldorf will be hosting Borussia Dortmund. Ahead of this match, Fortuna are placed 16th with 28 points while Dortmund are on 63 points, and in second place. This match is crucial for both teams and for different reasons. Dortmund are chasing the league title, and while realistically it seems impossible, but mathematically it remains possible, as they are seven points behind leaders Bayern Munich. Below them, Leipzig are pushing for second spot, being just four points behind. As for Fortuna, they are hoping to avoid relegation and they will be under pressure to win this game after the 2-2 draw with Hoffenheim last time. Fortuna are three points below the safety line and each of the last four matches will be crucial. Fortuna’s recent matches have been high scoring; each of the last four have seen at least two goals scored. Meanwhile, they have failed to score in two of their last five matches. They head to this match without the services of defensive midfielder Adam Bodzek which will add to their worries. Fortuna have one of the poorest defensive records in the league, having conceded 60 goals in 30 matches. They have scored just 33 times, making them the joint second poorest attacking team. With one win in their last eight matches, they will be outright underdogs ahead of this game. They are unbeaten in their last four home games but only one of these ended in a win. Only one of their last 10 home matches has produced a clean sheet and four of the last five have ended in over 2.5 goals.
Dortmund, on the other hand, are enjoying a better run as compared to Fortuna. They have lost once in the last five matches and all the remaining four ended in wins. They have scored at least two goals in three of their last five matches and kept three clean sheets. They failed to score against Bayern and save for that and the 1-0 win over Hertha Berlin in their last game, they have been scoring a plenty. Emre Can’s second half goal was enough for Dortmund to see off Hertha and they will hope to extend the winning run as they hope to close in on Bayern Munich, who have a tough game against Borussia Monchengladbach. They have four straight away wins in Bundesliga and have scored at least two goals in seven of their last eight away league games. Dortmund have two straight wins over Fortuna, the most recent having ended 5-0 and the earlier also producing five goals as Dortmund won 3-2.
