Fortuna Dusseldorf – Werder
Fortuna Dusseldorf host Werder Bremen in the derby of the 2. Bundesliga Matchday on Saturday evening at Merkur-Spiel Arena. Saturday’s prime-time kick-off is reserved for Werder Bremen once again, following their 1-1 draw to Hannover last weekend at Weserstadion.
Fortuna opened the new season with a confident 0-2 victory at Sandhausen. Their best player and a seasoned 2. Bundesliga veteran with more than 240 appearances in this competition, Rouwen Hennings, was the main catalyst for the win.
Werder lead the tie by 7 wins going into the 47th meeting with Fortuna, but they won only 7 of 22 games in Dusseldorf. Fortuna left a much better impression on the opening day and we don’t see them as underdogs here by any means. However, since we are looking at a clash between two similarly-matched opponents, we expect both teams to score a goal.
This match will be played on 31/07/2021 at 21:30.
