Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Bayern Munich begins 14.04.2019 at 15:30 CET
Fortuna plays in win-lose rhythm and it didn’t draw in last nine rounds. It won five and lost four matches, while the rhythm changed recently to two wins-two losses. It started with two triumphs, over Nurnberg and Schalke, and continued with two defeats, by Eintracht and Wolfsburg, while right now Fortuna has mini-series of two wins. Two rounds ago they broke resistance of Borussia M’gladbach in just 15 minutes how much they need to score three goals. In the previous round they won Hertha 2-1 and now are safely positioned in the middle of table. Ayhan is back at stopper position but Gieselmann is injured and instead of him Suttner will go on the left flank.
Probable lineups Fortuna Dusseldorf: Rensing – M. Zimmermann, Ayhan, M. Kaminski, Suttner – Bodzek, Stoger – Lukebakio, O. Fink, Raman – Hennings
Bayern took over the leading place in the table from Borussia Dortmund and they don’t plan to leave it by the end of season. The Bavarians took over the first place in a grand style as they demolished in the previous round former leader Borussia by 5-0 at home. Bayern had already managed to catch up with its only competitor in the title race but then they had the same number of points and then the Bavarians had merely drew away with Freiburg 1-0. After that Bayern plays a strange match and wins Heidenheim in the DFB-Pokal by 5-4. They scored two times by five goals and manager Kovac will leave the starting line-up as it is.
Probable lineups Bayern Munich: Neuer – Kimmich, Sule, Hummels, Alaba – J. Martinez, Alcantara – Gnabry, T. Muller, Coman – Lewandowski
Fortuna plays quite well being under no pressure and it will not surrender in advance now. The guests have imperative to win and they score with ease lately, so we expect a goal fest in Dusseldorf, just like it was their head-to-head played last autumn in Munich.
