Hamburg v Fortuna Dusseldorf tips – More misery for troubled Dusseldorf

Things are not looking good for Fortuna Dusseldorf (credit:Credit by bettingpro)

Fortuna Dusseldorf’s battle against the drop will suffer another setback when they visit Hamburg on Saturday.

Betfair Match Odds: Hamburg 1.92, Fortuna 4.4, The Draw 3.65

After a strong start to the campaign, Fortuna Dusseldorf have run out of steam, and Norbert Meier's men risk an instant return to the second tier of German football. Fortuna are just three points above the bottom three, and six points clear of the automatic drop-zone. Last week they twice surrendered the lead in a 2-2 draw with Werder Bremen, and they haven't won any of their last seven matches, collecting just three points in that period. To make matters worse for potential backers of Fortuna, F95 haven't won any of their last 11 away games, losing nine and drawing two.

The biggest problem for Fortuna has been a collapse in defensive standards. Incredibly, they kept clean sheets in their first five Bundesliga games, but since then they have recorded just three shut-outs in 29 games. At the other end of the pitch Fortuna often struggle away from home, they have netted just 13 goals in 14 away games.

Hamburg have been on a poor run themselves, but Thorsten Fink's men are still just five points adrift of the top four. South Korean star Heung-Min Son was the driving force behind last week's eye-catching 2-1 win at Mainz, scoring both goals. Opta tell us Son has now scored three braces this season, and he has 11 league goals overall. Hamburg insist he isn't for sale, but both Arsenal and Liverpool have been casting admiring glances his way for some time.

Hamburg have won just one of their last five home games, but I think the penny finally dropped last week, and the Redshorts produced a much more aggressive, committed display than they have recently. With Son on form and his fellow top-scorer Artjoms Rudnevs potentially returning to the starting eleven, I just can't see Fortuna's creaking defence containing the Hamburg attack. It tends to be famine or feast for Hamburg at the Imtech Arena (7 wins, 6 defeats and a draw) and I think the majority of the sell-out crowd will be filling their faces with victory-flavoured pie.
