📰 Team News: Fortuna Dusseldorf
Due to a fully healthy group available for selection, the Fortuna Dusseldorf boss Daniel Thioune has no fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this clash.
From our viewpoint, Fortuna seem likely to play in a 3-2-3-2 lineup by sending out Florian Kastenmeier, Christoph Klarer, Andre Hoffmann, Jordy de Wijs, Marcel Sobottka, Jorrit Hendrix, Felix Klaus, Ao Tanaka, Nicolas Gavory, Dawid Kownacki and Rouwen Hennings.
We’re of the opinion that Eintracht Braunschweig may well find it hard to see themselves scoring against this Fortuna Dusseldorf team who should be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
We’re therefore predicting a 0-1 advantage for Fortuna Dusseldorf at the end of the 90.
Should be an interesting one.
