Reason For RB Leipzig vs Fortuna Dusseldorf Predictions

  • Leipzig are unbeaten in their last 11 Bundesliga assignments at home.
  • Fortuna Dusseldorf have lost eight of their 15 away matches in the Bundesliga.
  • Fortuna Dusseldorf have conceded 20 goals in their last eight away Bundesliga matches.

Fortuna Dusseldorf in danger of relegation

Fortuna Dusseldorf are looking over their shoulder at Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga’s battle at the bottom and their survival hopes could take another hit against Leipzig.

Dusseldorf were on course for a valuable point against Borussia Dortmund last time out until Erling Haaland injury-time strike meant they came away from the game with nothing.

With Werder Bremen thumping Paderborn 5-1, Dusseldorf’s Bundesliga status is under threat and they will have to up their game, especially in the final third, ahead of their visit to the Red Bull Arena.

Red-hot Leipzig set for Champions League

Leipzig have all but secured a Champions League berth in the Bundesliga, having not lost since the restart as part of a 12-game unbeaten run.

Seven of those matches have finished as stalemates but they should have the attacking prowess to outscore shot-shy Dusseldorf.

The Red Bulls have lost only one home league game this season and that was against Schalke all the way back in September.

Their tally of only 17 goals conceded in 15 home encounters demonstrates that Julian Nagelsmann has them playing disciplined football and they are also the only Bundesliga outfit to have scored in all of their home matches this season.

Given the lack of quality in the final third in the Dusseldorf team, it may only take one goal or two for Leipzig to take maximum points from this contest.

Shot-shy Dusseldorf reliant on Rouwen Hennings

Dusseldorf have drawn ten blanks in the league this season, with 12-goal Rouwen Hennings their only play to have reached double figures in all competitions.

They have struggled in particular against the league’s big guns, losing away to Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen by an aggregate scoreline of 13-0.

Dusseldorf are the worst travellers in the division, winning only two of their 15 matches on their road and conceding 34 goals in the process, so Timo Werner and company can anticipate a straightforward win.

Even with little to play for other than faint hopes of moving from third to second, Leipzig have turned on the style in recent matches, with each of their last five league wins having been by at least two goals.

Backing Leipzig at -1 on the handicap could therefore be a solid match prediction for the clash at the Red Bull Arena.

As for a correct score predicition, Leipzig have won 3-0 on four occasions in all competitions this term, including in the reverse fixture against Fortuna Dusseldorf, and that could click once again.
