Fortuna Duesseldorf vs Bayer Leverkusen Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Fortuna Düsseldorf continued their good start to the campaign with a point against Stuttgart at the Mercedes Benz Arena. Despite starting out as favourites for relegation, Friedhelm Funkel’s team have lost only once in the opening four games. After a difficult start, Bayer Leverkusen have been able to register back-to-back wins in all competitions. The importance of momentum will be felt by Leverkusen, who are taking on Fortuna Düsseldorf in a competitive game for the first time since 2013. Funkel’s team have put in some hard work this season and I expect them to pick up a second consecutive home win or a draw.

Goals have been hard to come by for Fortuna Düsseldorf, who have scored more than 1.5 goals only once this season. The team has been trying to make up for the gulf in quality with some hard work and Leverkusen have also been quite put going forward this season. The availability of players like Leon Bailey will help them find the net. I would pick over 2.5 goals in the match.

Fortuna Düsseldorf win or draw – 5/6
