“Soccer" Who Wins?

Fortuna Dusseldorf is ranked 13th in the German Bundesliga with a record of 1-1-3 SU. They are coming off a 1-2 loss to Borussia Monchengladbach in their last outing and have not won a match since their opening round win over Werder Bremen.

SC Freiburg is currently 4th in the Bundesliga team standings with a record of 3-1-1 after five rounds. Freiburg is coming off a 1-1 draw against FC Augsburg and they have allowed their opponents to score four goals in five matches played with two shutout victories produced.

Head to head, Fortuna Dusseldorf has won three out of the last eight meetings between these two clubs. SC Freiburg has one win in those games while the teams have played to a draw in four other matches played. In their most recent matchup last May 5, 2019, these teams played to a 1-1 draw.

These teams have played in close matches and have been competitive against each other.

Dusseldorf’s defense has shown weaknesses this season and I think Freiburg is going to take advantage of that. Prediction: SC Freiburg
