THE PREDICTION

Fourth-placed Fortuna Dusseldorf can close the gap on leaders Hamburger SV to two points with a win in this clash. Uwe Rosler’s men came from behind twice to salvage a point at home to fellow promotion chasers Greuther Furth on Friday, extending their unbeaten run in the league to eight matches. It was also the fifth time during that run that Fortuna have netted three goals. Hamburg went one better than that on Saturday, scoring four as they came from 2-0 down to beat Eintracht Braunschweig. Daniel Thioune’s side are the highest scorers in Bundesliga 2 by some distance but they have not registered a clean sheet on their travels since October, and with both teams in good form, it is hard to see them not both scoring in what should be an entertaining contest.
