THE TEAM NEWS

RB LEIPZIG

  • RB Leipzig continued their strong away form as they bounced back from another disappointing home display by seeing off Hoffenheim to solidify their position in third place and are now in a great position to qualify for next season’s Champions League as a result.
  • Daniel Olmo struck twice in the space of a few minutes inside the opening 15 of the game and that pair of strikes proved to be enough to claim all three points with Hoffenheim unable to respond.
  • Dayot Upamecano returns from a one-match ban and is likely to come straight back into the starting XI but Leipzig have no new injury issues to contend with which leaves Julian Nagelsmann with plenty of options at his disposal.

FORTUNA DUSSELDORF

  • Fortuna Dusseldorf have proven difficult to beat for a long period now and other than a heavy loss against Bayern Munich, they had avoided defeat in their previous seven Bundesliga matches apart from that one.
  • That sole loss had given them confidence they could take something from their home matches with Borussia Dortmund at the weekend and that almost proved to be the case until the fifth minute of stoppage time when they were left heartbroken by a Dortmund winner.
  • Dusseldorf will have to pick themselves up immediately following their defeat that will have been a bitter pill to swallow and to make matters worse for them as they attempt to bounce back, they will have to make do without the suspended Niko Gießelmann.

THE PREDICTION

RB Leipzig extended their D-W sequence to six matches in the Bundesliga as they defeated Hoffenheim at the weekend but they will hope to break that run with another three points in this clash with Fortuna Dusseldorf. The visitors were left devastated as a crucial point passed them by because of a late Borussia Dortmund winner and they will need to show some real character to pick themselves up after that. Leipzig are yet to win at home following the resumption of the league but they can end their sequence of four successive home draws with by winning to nil on this one.
