Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Bochum Predictions


Fortuna Dusseldorf should be able to take advantage of a likely desperate Bochum side on Monday.

I fancy the hosts to score two or more, while I'm also backing over 2.5 goals scored in Dusseldorf. 

  • Fortuna Dusseldorf have seen over 2.5 goals in 3 of their last 4 matches
  • Fortuna Dusseldorf have scored 2+ goals in 5 of their last 7 home matches
  • Bochum have conceded 2+ goals in 8 of their last 10 away matches
  • Bochum have seen over 2.5 goals in 6 of their last 8 matches

Head to Head


Bochum and Fortuna Dusseldorf will meet for the 17th time since 2000. Bochum retain a narrow six-to-five H2H advantage despite Friday's 3-0 defeat at the Vonovia Ruhrstadion.

Fortuna eased to a 3-1 win when these sides last met in Dusseldorf in a friendly fixture last summer. 

Fortuna Dusseldorf Form


Fortuna Dusseldorf will be confident of securing their return to the Bundesliga for the first time since 2013 after Friday's comfortable 3-0 first-leg victory. Yannik Engelhardt's third goal of the season put the seal on a convincing win for Daniel Thioune's side.

Die Flingeraner have been in excellent form in recent weeks, securing wins in nine of their last 11 league fixtures. An impressive run to the semi-finals of the DFB Pokal was ended only by Bundesliga champions Leverkusen. 

Particularly strong in home fixtures, Fortuna claimed victories in each of their last six matches at the Düsseldorf Arena.

Fortuna Dusseldorf Team News


Head coach Thioune is expected to keep faith with the same XI that eased to victory on Friday. 

Jamil Siebert remains sidelined with a ruptured tendon. 

Bochum Form


Bochum make the trip to Dusseldorf in search of an unlikely three-goal away victory. Die Unabsteigbaren failed to win 20 of their last 22 away matches, while they have not scored a three-goal road win since a DFB Pokal victory against Viktoria Berlin over two years ago. 

Heiko Butscher's side slipped to defeat in eight of their last ten Bundesliga away fixtures. Bochum's only away success came in a 4-3 win at Union Berlin last month. 

Leaky in defence, Die Unabsteigbaren conceded two goals or more in 13 of 18 away games played this season. 

Bochum Team News


Bochum are expected to be without the services of a handful of first-team players on Monday.  

Moritz Kwarteng, Philipp Forste, Danilo Soares, Mohammed Tolba and Michael Esser are all set to remain absent for the home side. 

Felix Passlack is available again after serving a two-game ban.

Verdict

Fortuna should make sure of promotion with a high-scoring home win on Monday.

I'm taking the hosts to score two or more in a game where I expect at least three goals scored.
