Bayern Munich welcomes Fortuna Dusseldorf
The champion Bayern Munich welcomes Fortuna Dusseldorf at the Allianz Arena in a match from the 29th round of the Bundesliga. The Bavarian giants will try to make another step towards their 8th consecutive league title. Let’s take a look.
On Tuesday Bayern Munich made a very big step towards winning the Bundesliga again. Hansi Flick’s team visited Borussia Dortmund at the Signal Iduna Park and celebrated a difficult, but precious 1-0 win over their main rival for the first place. The game was decided at the end of the first half when Joshua Kimmich scored the winner for the champions.
After this win Bayern Munich are now 7 points ahead of the second Borussia Dortmund. Many people now believe that the league is over, despite of the fact that there are still few more rounds to be played. But it’’s true – it’s difficult to beat Bayern Munich for the title when you’re 7 points behind.
The manager Hansi Flick could make some changes to his lineup for Saturday. Against Dortmund Ivan Perisic, Lucas Hernandez and Javi Martinez entered the pitch from the bench, but this is a good opportunity for them ro return to the starting eleven.
Fortuna Dusseldorf are hardly a match for Bayern Munich. At this moment they are 16th in the league with 27 points. Fortuna are fighting for survival, but let’s be honest – it’d be a shocker if they get something from the Allianz Arena on Saturday.
Fortuna Dusseldorf are in a good mood, though. During the week the club recorded its 6th win for the season. Uwe Rosler’s team hosted the struggling Schalke 04 and won with 2-1. The Royal Blues opened the score, but Fortuna clinched the win with goals from Rouwen Hennings and Kenan Karaman.
We don’t expect to see Bayern Munich making a mistake against Fortuna Dusseldorf on Saturday. These two teams are from different quality and we think we will see why.
