Saarbrucken and Fortuna Dusseldorf
The DFB Pokal competition for this season nears its conclusion because all of the 1/4-finals are going to be played this week. In our football prediction tips for today we are going to preview for you the match between Saarbrucken and Fortuna Dusseldorf at the Hermann-Neuberger-Stadion. Let’s go.
Saarbrucken are one of the surprises in the competition this season. They are currently playing in the German Regionalliga, but this didn’t stopped them from reaching the 1/4-finals of the tournament. After eliminating Bundesliga’s Koln in October, Saarbrucken did the same with Karlsruher SC, although they needed penalties in order to do it.
Saarbrucked are showing good form at the moment as they won their last two Regionalliga games against FSV Frankfurta and Balingen. Kaiserslautern’s ex-striker Sebastian Jacob is the club’s leading goalscorer at the moment with 17 goals scored in the Regionalliga until today.
Fortuna Dusseldorf are the favourite in this fixture being the Bundesliga side. The Flingeraner reached the 1/4-finals after a dominating performance against Kaiserslautern at the Fritz-Walter-Stadion in the previous round. Uwe Rosler’s team scored five goals and took a 5-2 win. Rouwen Hennings scored twice for the visitors, while Nana Ampomah, Matthias Zimmermann and Kevin Stoger also put the ball in the net.
In the Bundesliga Fortuna Dusseldorf are not having the best possible season being 16th in the league with 21 points. They have won just one of their last five games in the German elite division – against Freiburg. In the previous round Fortuna faced Hertha BSC at home, but the match ended with a 3-3 draw. The hosts can feel sorry for this result because they had a clear 3-0 advantage, but they still didn’t win.
That’s our football prediction tips for the DFB Pokal fixture between Saarbrucken and Fortuna Dusseldorf from the 1/4-finals of the competition. We wish you good luck.
