Fortuna host Bayern Munich on Sunday afternoon, kicking off at 3:30pm local time. The hosts are in mid-table, with little to play for, whereas the visitors are looking to secure a record 7th consecutive title.

Home Team: Fortuna Dusseldorf

Fortuna were the champions of the second tier in German football last season, and they have been impressive in the Bundesliga, as they are now 10th in the table, and sitting comfortably. Their ambitions before the season had started would be to remain safe, and they have achieved that with flying colours, and actually find themselves closer to the European positions within the league, than to the relegation places.

Fortuna have six games now to try and finish as high as possible to reward the support from their loyal fans who have been overly pleased with the football they have been seeing. Fortuna come into this match on decent form, having won the last two matches. They beat Monchengladbach, who are hoping to secure a Champions League spot 3-1 two weeks ago, and then they travelled to Hertha Berlin to secure a 2-1 victory. Attacker Benito Raman is the top scorer for the club, and it was his goals that secured that win against Hertha Berlin, which leapfrogged them in the table.

Away Team: Bayern Munich

Unlike Fortuna, Bayern Munich have six crucial matches left to play, and if they are to win all of them – they will be crowned champions. Last week, Bayern Munich were involved in the game that was labelled ‘The Biggest Game in Europe’, as they welcome Borussia Dortmund in a title decider. Many were anticipating a closer game, similar to their league meeting back in November, but it was anything but.

Bayern Munich demolished Dortmund, just as they did in the respective fixture last season, in a 5-0 drubbing, with four goals coming in the first half. Excellent performances from Robert Lewandowsk, Mats Hummels and Thiago, just to name a few, showed they had enough guile, strength, and quality to win the match at ease. That win propelled them to the top of the table by one point, and now they have the destiny of the championship in their own hands. Can they get one step closer to the title?

Head to Head

In the reverse fixture, Fortuna Dusseldorf produced a stunning comeback from 3-1 down to secure a famous 3-3 victory at the Allianz Arena. At that time, Bayern Munich were struggling and many were starting to write off manager Niko Kovac. That was the first meeting between the sides since Fortuna were last in the top flight, back in the 2012/2013 season.

That season, Bayern Munich won both games, including a narrow 3-2 home win, but a devastating 5-0 victory away. Those three matches were the only games played between the sides since the turn of the millennium, with Fortuna’s last point in this fixture in 1996, and their last win back in 1991. Bayern Munich have won on every visit to Fortuna Dusseldorf since 1985.

Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Bayern Munich Predictions and Betting Tips

bet now betting on football Fortuna are at 11/1 to get a victory that is 34 years in the making, with Bayern Munich overwhelming favourites at 1/5. For the sides to share the spoils, that is priced at a reasonable 6/1. The reason as to why I said it’s ‘reasonable’, because Bayern Munich’s away form has been far from great, and they did draw their last away match at SC Freiburg. Nonetheless, this Bayern Munich team seem incredibly focused, and I expect them to get an emphatic 3-0 victory here, priced at 7/1.

I’d back Robert Lewandowski to score, but at 4/9, it really doesn’t give you great value, so I’d recommend betting on veteran Thomas Muller instead, at 7/5. Fortuna shouldn’t be underestimated, and you can get great value by backing them in any form, so do consider betting on them to score 2+ goals at 7/2, or even to be leading at half time at 13/2. Finally, it may be worth betting on Fortuna’s main guy in form, Benito Raman, to score in a loss, at 5/1.
