Braunschweig vs Dusseldorf Prediction & Betting tips

Brunswick – Dusseldorf, both teams want to score again before the winter. Eintracht Braunschweig, to continue the slight upward trend of recent games and to increase the still relatively small distance from the current eleventh place in the table to the relegation zone of only four points. And Fortuna Dusseldorf, in order not to damage such a strong half-year with the eighth winless game in series and to lose more of their lead on the non-promotion slots.
So far, both clubs have faced each other 52 times, exactly half of the matches took place in the Bundesliga. With 20 wins the balance speaks for the Fortuna, while Braunschweig brings in 17 draws only 15 successes. In Braunschweig, however, the Eintracht clearly has the lead with twelve home victories in seven draws and only six victorious victories.

Braunschweig :

In the end, Eintracht Braunschweig did get the curve to some extent again, but overall the interim conclusion is very mixed. After four points from the first two games, it put Holstein Kiel (1: 2) the end in the DFB Cup and then separated the Eintracht four times in a row. Then it went very changeable and rarely convincing. So followed for a 3-0 win against SpVgg Greuther Fürth initially two defeats and after again neat four points from the games at MSV Duisburg (0: 0) and against VfL Bochum (1: 0) there were three more draws in Series. When it was lost against 1 FC Nuremberg with 2: 3, coach Torsten Lieberknecht spoke openly for the first time of the relegation battle, whereupon his team landed at FC Ingolstadt an unexpected 2-0 victory and last weekend also against the strong climber Kiel (0-0) with the tenth draw in the 17th game sold dearly.

Captain Ken Reichel returns after serving yellow suspension in the team, which should otherwise hardly be changed. Also because Domi Kumbela, Joseph Baffo, Christoffer Nyman and Mirko Boland are still missing.

Probable lineup: Fejzic – Kijewski, Breitkreuz, Valsvik, Reichel – Minor, Samson – Hernandez, Hochscheidt, Zuck – Abdullahi

Dusseldorf :

After the 2: 2 in the first leg against Eintracht Braunschweig on the first matchday Fortuna Dusseldorf has a first series of five competitive wins in a row, four in the league and a 3: 1 n.V. in the DFB Cup at Arminia Bielefeld and then even from a first defeat at SpVgg Greuther Fürth (1: 3) can not be thrown off course. Instead, the team of coach Friedhelm Funkel joined after five more victories together and seemed lonely to the Bundesliga. But a 0: 1 in the DFB Cup against Borussia Mönchengladbach then meant the beginning of a lasting to this day drought. At VfL Bochum (0: 0) and against 1. FC Heidenheim (2: 2) there were initially two draws, which at the FC Ingolstadt (0: 1) and against Dynamo Dresden (1: 3) two defeat and then in Top game at Holstein Kiel (2: 2) followed by a draw. Now on Monday, the Fortuna conceded against the 1 FC Nuremberg in the next big game a 0-2 defeat, which the club has passed in the table.

While Adam Bodzek and Michael Rensing also missed the last game of the year, Julian Schauerte, who lost to Nuremberg due to illness, could at least be back in the squad. However, there are no serious changes despite the defeat.

Probable lineup: Wolf – Zimmer, Ayhan, Hoffmann, Gießelmann – Sobottka – Raman, Neuhaus, Fink, Schmitz – Hennings
