Game Fortuna Dusseldorf vs VfL Wolfsburg begins 13.09.2019 at 20:30 CET
After winning the first match in the new season, in the DFB-Pokal with Werder in Bremen, Fortune's ambitions increased, however, they soon faced the reality. They played really good against Werder and they scored three goals but then they met Bayer Leverkusen at home and have received three goals in the first half. Before the end they only reduced the defeat, while in the previous round they were first to take lead in Frankfurt but then have lost o Eintracht 2-1. Fortuna scored at least one goal in all three matches and it can be said that the attack is a much better part of the team than defence that doesn’t perform that well.
Manager Funkel didn't make any changes in that part of the team in first three rounds. He also didn’t replace forward Hennings, who already scored two goals and he only makes changes in the midfield. Funkel cannot count on Morales because he is injured and he must find replacement for him. The defence will probably stay as it was in the previous round and changes will take place in the midfield where Pledl might get chance.
Probable lineups Fortuna Dusseldorf: Z. Steffen – Zimmermann, Hoffmann, Ayhan, Gieselmann – Bodzek, O. Fink – Pledl, Karaman, Kownacki – Hennings
Wolfsburg started well the new season but their fans still regret the previous league match with Paderborn. If the Wolves won Cologne and Hertha it was logical to expect that they will defeat the newcomer to the Bundesliga at home, but they didn’t and Wolfsburg had to accept a draw. They were trailing behind in that match but Brekalo equalised more than half an hour before the end and they had enough time to completely turn the result up-side doewn. In the first round they effortlessly defeated Cologne although the result read at the end 2-1. The Wolves played their best match so far in the second round when they won Hertha 3-0 in Berlin.
Manager Glasner had made only few changes in the starting lineup so far, which was logical when they started with two triumphs. Brekalo started on the bench in first round playing and Klaus had an advantage, however, after a goal in Berlin, Brekalo has replaced Klaus in the line-up and that was the only change. Brekalo also scored against Paderborn and with it he justified Glasner’s trust, and is alongside Weghorst the only Wolfsburg’s player who has scored two goals so far. In the meantime goalkeeper Casteels got injured and Pervan will replace hime, while midfielder Schlager is also troubled by injury.
Probable lineups VfL Wolfsburg: Pervan – Tisserand, Knoche, Brooks – William, Arnold, Guilavogui, Roussillon – J. Victor, Brekalo – Weghorst
Betting Pick: Fortuna Dusseldorf vs VfL Wolfsburg
Wolfsburg had started better the new season but Fortuna had scored in each match played so far and all of them were efficient. Wolfsburg is similarly efficient and we expect an interesting match in Dusseldorf.
