Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 3/5 @ Bet 365
In what is a real battle at the foot of the Bundesliga table, Fortuna Dusseldorf will welcome Paderborn to the Merkur Spiel-Arena on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, only managing to play out a 1-1 draw away at Mainz last weekend in a fixture that was billed as a must-win contest for Uwe Rösler’s men, Fortuna Dusseldorf find themselves in the midst of another struggle. Crashing out of the DFP Pokal away at third-tier Saarbrücken earlier in the month, fans around the Merkur Spiel-Arena have seen their side land just a sole victory against Bundesliga opposition since returning from the festive break. Now sat four points adrift in the relegation play-off spot, a huge part of Dusseldorf’s continued issues of late has come down to some worrying issues on home soil. Failing to win any of their last four matches in front of their own supporters, Friday’s hosts have shipped seven goals in back-to-back appearances at home.
As for the visitors, hit with a 2-1 defeat at home against a resurging Koln last weekend, it is no surprise that Paderborn are seen to be a huge favorite for an immediate drop this season. Still sat rock-bottom of the Bundesliga table and in the midst of a woeful four-match losing run, Steffen Baumgart’s men have continued to show some glaring problems at the back. Despite managing to bag a consolation strike in five of their last six outings, the German strugglers have shipped at least a pair of strikes in each of their previous four defeats. With the two sides playing out a 2-2 draw the last time they faced off at the Merkur Spiel-Arena, we’re backing a similar outcome on Friday night.
Bet: Both teams to score at Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Paderborn 3/5 for Friday’s Bundesliga matchup @ Bet 365
