Friday, 12.08.2016 at 20:30
Friday's top match
There will be a great game on Friday in the 2nd league in Germany, when Fortuna Düsseldorf will face the relegated team Vfb Stuttgart at home. Stuttgart got away with a lucky win in their first game of the season. Düsseldorf could only draw against Sandhausen and brought home one lucky point. Kick-off is Friday at 8.30 PM.
Current form Fortuna Düsseldorf
Fortuna Düsseldorf barely escaped relegation last season, so in 2016/2017 they want to trend upwards again. Their weak performance against Sandhausen in the season opener reminded everybody of last season though. They already got a goal after only 13 minutes. In the end they could score one point and managed a draw thanks to an own goal of their opponent. This one point is the only positive thing coming from that game and it should have pushed the team's morale. Coach Friedhelm Funkel's team especially struggled with game development. Their offense could be read like an open book. Defensively Sandhausen had too much space most of the time and Fortuna never found their way into the duels. In order to succeed at home an increase in their performance will be more than necessary. It may be possible that Funkel will count on more experienced players against Düsseldorf, after the only 18-year-old Emmanuel Iyoha was acting as the only striker against Sandhausen. With Didier Ya Conan there is a very experienced Bundesliga player on the team, who hasn't seen any action last Saturday.
Current form Vfb Stuttgart
There are a few parallels between Stuttgart and Düsseldorf. The Swabians also have a lousy season behind them, which lead to the relegation. Additionally Stuttgart is lucky to have scored 3 points in their opening game. And Stuttgart also was trailing early in the game against St. Pauli. Contrary to Düsseldorf however, Stuttgart managed to turn the game around and win in the end. But it's always hard for a team to play the first game in a new league, when you don't know the level of play yet. Jos Luhukay's team should have gained some security from the win. Vfb also has the better individual players compared to Fortuna. One example for that is Alexandru Maxim, who came off the bench against St. Pauli and brought additional drive to the game. All in all the team doesn't seem well-coordinated yet. Stuttgart should also think about their last match ups against Düsseldorf, which took place in the season of 2012/2013 in the first league. They could draw at home (0:0), but were defeated away with 1:3.
Düsseldorf is always good for a victory at home. Additionally the pressure should be on Stuttgart, because their goal is to go up to the first league again right away. In the end it will depend on the individual player's game day performance. We are counting on a draw in this duel. Our recommendation: Tipp X.
