Bayern Munich are back with a bang and had a superb win against arch-rivals Dortmund in midweek, winning 1-0 thanks to a Joshua Kimmich strike. That victory saw Bayern extend their lead at the top of the Bundesliga to seven points and they head into this weekend’s clash with Dusseldorf in fine form (kick off 5.30pm).
Dusseldorf certainly have it all to do. They face an almighty scrap to fend off the impending doom of relegation as they currently sit third from bottom in the Bundesliga.
Bayern, meanwhile, are sauntering towards yet another league title and it seems as if nothing can stop them. Can the visitors pull off arguably the shock of the season? Let’s take a closer look.
Bayern Munich v Fortuna Dusseldorf Predictions
If you look at this game purely from a league table point of view, there is only one winner. However, if you delve deeper, the recent form guide suggests that Dusseldorf could pull off a surprise.
Fortuna are unbeaten in six games and had an excellent 2-1 win over Schalke in midweek to ease their relegation fears. This game, though, is a different proposition.
Munich have won their last seven league games, including that triumph over Borussia in midweek, and only the most hopeful Dusseldorf could see them getting something at the Allianz Arena. Go for a straightforward Bayern success.
