Fortuna Dusseldorf host Hoffenheim

The struggling Fortuna Dusseldorf host Hoffenheim at the Merkur Spiel-Arena in a fixture from the 30th round of the Bundesliga. It’s a perfect time for us to preview this game in our football betting tips this weekend. Let’s go.

Fortuna Dusseldorf are still at the relegation playoff zone, being 16th with 25 points. That’s putting them on par with the 17th Werder Bremen, which is making them a little bit nervous right now. Fortuna are among the newcomers in the league right now, so they don’t want to get back to the 2. Bundesliga so soon.

In the previous round Fortuna Dusseldorf suffered their 14th defeat for the season, but nobody can blame them for this. Uwe Rosler’s boys had to visit the champion Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena, which didn’t end too well for them. The Bavarians offered a spectacle to their fans and comfortably won the game with 5-0. Fortuna’s Mathias Jorgensen had the bad luck to score himself an own goal as well.

Fortuna Dusseldorf have won just five games in the league since the beginning of the season. That’s not a good stat, no doubt about this.

During the weekend Hoffenheim stopped their run of few consecutive games without a win. Hoffe visited Mainz 05 at the Opel Arena and had the luck to go home with a 1-0 win.  Ihlas Bebou scored the winning goal just two minutes before the halftime break.

Until the end of this season Hoffenheim will try to qualify for Europa League. Right now Hoffe are 7th in the league with 40 points, but being just three points behind the 6th Wolfsburg. That’s the moment for them to put their feet on the gas pedal.

These are our football betting tips this weekend for the Bundesliga game between Fortuna Dusseldorf and Hoffenheim. Can Fortuna surprise us all against Hoffe? We shall see.
