THE PREDICTION

These sides were two leagues apart last season and there are 14 points separating them going into this encounter. A poor run of just one point from their last five games has seen Eintracht Braunschweig slip into the relegation play-off spot, although all three of their league wins this season have come at home. Coach Daniel Meyer will be hoping that the signing of experienced centre-back Brian Behrendt from Arminia Bielefeld can help to shore up the division’s second-worst defence. Fortuna Dusseldorf, on the other hand, have the top three in their sights following five consecutive wins and are looking like serious promotion contenders. The Rhinelanders were also leading at half-time in four of those games so consider a double result bet on the visitors, who should be fancied to win comfortably.
