Fortuna Duesseldorf vs Borussia Dortmund Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Even though Fortuna Dusseldorf climbed out of the bottom two places with a crucial home win over Freiburg during the weekend, a match against the autumn champions Dortmund will not be easy. Even though both the visitors have not scored more than 2.5 goals in any of the last six games, there is little arguing in the offensive quality possessed by the table leaders. The likes of Paco Alcacer and Jadon Sancho have been in amazing form and I would back a game with a Borussia Dortmund victory and under 3.5 goals.

Dortmund have come up with just five out of the 13 goals in the first half of the last six away matches. Even though Lucien Favre’s men have taken the lead in the last four away matches, they have scored more goals in the second half. Düsseldorf will not be keen to give the table leaders a strong start. These factors make me go with Dortmund to score higher in the second half.

Borussia Dortmund win and under 3.5 goals – 6/4

Borussia Dortmund to score highest in the second half – 11/10

Fortuna Duesseldorf saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played
