Betting Tips for the game
Fortuna Dusseldorf were able to register a second consecutive league victory by beating Hertha Berlin 2-1 at the Olympiastadion Berlin. The win comes just a week after the success over Mönchengladbach, and these successes have helped Friedhelm Funkel’s team close the gap to the top 10.
Bayern Munich were able to produce a five-star performance to beat title rivals Borussia Dortmund 5-0 at home. This was the second successive match in which Bayern have scored five goals.
The reverse encounter between Bayern and Fortuna Dusseldorf was a six-goal thriller at the Allianz Arena with Fortuna Dusseldorf claiming an unlikely point in the 3-3 draw. The last game between these two clubs at the Merkur Spiel-Arena produced a 5-0 win for the German giants. Our betting tips and predictions would go with a win for Bayern.

Bayern have been able to gain a foothold in the league title race after the big win over Borussia Dortmund and Niko Kovac would be not in the mood to see that advantage slip after just one match. Even though Bayern have the distraction of the DFB Pokal coming up in the next few weeks, they are up against a lot of positivity with the league title almost within sight. Even though Fortuna Dusseldorf have a style of football that can hurt Bayern, a lot of concentration from the visiting team is expected for this encounter.
