Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Paderborn: top free betting tips
Paderborn are set to travel to Fortuna Dusseldorf in search of their first 2. Bundesliga victory on Saturday, 19 August. Both Fortunen and Paderborn make an appearance at Merkur Spiel Arena after DFB Pokal victories against Illertissen and Cottbus respectively.
Match result prediction: Fortuna Dusseldorf to win
Dusseldorf has registered three victories in the last four H2Hs against Paderborn at Merkur Spiel Arena. Fortuna has also gone undefeated in the last five league outings in front of the home crowd, winning four of them. However, Paderborn has been dismal away from Benteler Arena and is winless in the last eight away league outings, losing three. Therefore, we set Fortuna Dusseldorf as our favourites to take three points in this game.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
Despite getting through a winless sequence, Paderborn has rattled the net in four of the recent five league outings away from Benteler Arena. Dusseldorf found the back of the net in each of the last five 2. Bundeliga matches at Merkur Spiel Arena. Fortunen also claimed three clean sheets in that duration. However, these two teams have shared BTTS outcomes in all of their last five H2Hs. Hence, we predict both teams getting on the score sheet in this fixture.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Fortuna Dusseldorf
Paderborn has notched more than one goal in only one of the previous four games in 2. Bundesliga. However, Dusseldorf rattled the net twice or more three times in the last four league games at Merkur Spiel Arena. Fortuna has also scored multiple goals in each of the previous three home H2Hs against the upcoming rivals. Paderborn’s defence has also been caught napping as they allowed more than one goal in each of the previous five league outings away from Benteler Arena. Given these statistics, we predict a 2-1 margin for Dusseldorf to retain their winning form on Saturday.
