Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Darmstadt – Preview, and Prediction

Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Darmstadt – After a 6-0 thrashing of relegation-threatened Erzgebirge Aue last weekend, Darmstadt moved into second place in the 2. Bundesliga rankings.

With only two games remaining, they took advantage of Werder Bremen’s surprise 2-3 home loss to Holstein Kiel to draw level on points with Die Werderaner (Darmstadt has a six-goal advantage).

The team headed by Torsten Liebnerknecht will face Fortuna Dusseldorf in Gameweek 33 at Merkur Spiel-Arena on Friday afternoon.

With a win tonight, they will control their own destiny in terms of automatic promotion ahead of the final day matchups next weekend.

Obtaining one, however, will be a significant challenge for the guests. Fortuna Dusseldorf have seen a major improvement in form in recent weeks, despite having nothing but pride to play for for a long time.

Daniel Thioune’s club has now gone eleven games without losing in the 2. Bundesliga. Recently, they’ve been particularly inspired in the last third.

In the last two games, he has scored five goals against Dynamo Dresden (a 2.2 draw) and Heidenheim (a 1-3 win at home).
