RB Leipzig – Fortuna Dusseldorf
RB Leipzig could top the Bundesliga standings on Saturday when they visit Fortuna Dusseldorf in a game from the 15th round of the league. In our football prediction tips we will take a look at this game for you.
That’s right – if they win on Saturday, RB Leipzig will be the new leaders in the Bundesliga. At least for a day before Borussia M’gladbach to face Wolfsburg. Right now Julian Nagelsmann’s team is second in the table, but just one point behind the leader. The Red Bulls are having a great season so far and they are starting to dream about winning the title. Surely it’s not impossible for them to do it.
In their last five games RB Leipzig have showed impressive form, winning all five of them. Last week the Red Bulls hosted Hoffenheim in Leipzig and secured a 3-1 win. Timo Werner scored twice, while Marcel Sabitzer also scored for the home side.
Against Fortuna Dusseldorf the manager Julian Nagelsmann can’t use some of his players who are injured. Kevin Kampl, Willi Orban, Ibrahima Konate and Tyler Adams are all missing the next match.
Fortuna Dusseldorf are in a dangerous situation at the moment being 16th in the standings with 12 points. So far during the season they have a record of three wins, three draws and eight losses – not the type of performance which guarantees you survival.
Last week Fortuna didn’t have their best day at the Signal Iduna Park where they suffered a 0-5 defeat against Borussia Dortmund. The manager Friedhelm Funkel didn’t have what to do really because his team was totally outclassed by Die Borussen. But it was far from unexpected, of course.
These are our football prediction tips for the Bundesliga clash between RB Leipzig and Fortuna Dusseldorf here. We don’t expect any surprises here, so we pick Leipzig to win this one with an ease.
