Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Bayern Munchen: Match preview
The match against Dortmund showed that Bayern still has a title team this season. On the sidelines, the replacement of coach Nick Kovac, who turns out to be the sole culprit for some poor results, though it is clear that there were boycotts of players.
Fortuna made a sensation last season in Munich where she scored a point, playing 3: 3, with all three goals scored by Lukebakio, who is no longer in Dusseldorf. Bayern retaliated with a convincing triumph at the away game in Dusseldorf, when it was 4-1 for the Bavarians.
Now the Munich team is coming in as a big favorite. Fortuna was in a good series of results before the championship break.
Fortuna team news:
Last season, Fortuna was a hit in the Bundesliga, with recent matches showing that fans in Dusseldorf can hope for new successes after a poor season. Season was opened with a big away win over Werder, but after celebrating in Bremen they only scored one point in the next six games.
Despite a series of poor results, the club believed in Funkel, and it paid off as it scored seven points in the last four rounds to escape from the red zone on the table according to the desired midfield position. In the last round, Fortuna showed character by scoring in Gelsenkirchen. Hennings scored three times to cancel Schalke’s advantage.
Probable lineup: Steffen, Zimmer, Ayhan, Hoffmann, Adams, Giesselmann, Zimmermann, Bodzek, Morales, Kownacki, Hennings.
Bayern team news:
After a tough defeat by Eintracht and five received goals in Frankfurt, Niko Kovac left. This has proved to be a good move for the club management. Kovac’s until recently assistant Flick solidified a defense that was previously very leaky.
The atmosphere in the Bayern locker room has definitely improved since Flick took the helm. Still, the big question is whether he will retain his position given that the media has mentioned that the club has negotiated Pochettino until recently.
Probable lineup: Neuer, Pavard, Martinez, Alaba, Davies, Kimmich, Goretzka, Gnabry, Muller, Coman, Lewandowski.
It is plain and simple. Bayern is in a top shape and Fortuna can just hope not to receive too many goals. The outcome is obvious, but we still expect an interesting performance, especially from the Munchen team.
