Dusseldorf vs Schalke Prediction & Betting tips
On the seventh game day Fortuna Dusseldorf receives the FC Schalke 04. On 06.10.2018 at 14:30 rolls the leather in the Merkur Spiel-Arena. From a purely tabular perspective, this match is pure relegation battle. Dusseldorf is in 15th place with five points, while Schalke are in 17th place with only three points. Of course you could have expected before the season, the Fortunen after six matchdays in 15th place, but the situation in Gelsenkirchen, you would certainly not be able to see.
The Fortuna from Dusseldorf put on a very good start to the season. They took five points from the first four games. It was even the TSG from Hoffenheim defeated 2-1. In the last two games, however, what happened before the season happened. It followed two defeats in one piece and the relegation places come again threateningly close. Only the better goal difference keeps the Funkel-Elf before the relegation place. Should Schalke decide this duel for itself, Dusseldorf would inevitably slip at least to 15th place. Would also score Stuttgart, it would even be 17th place. Good for Dusseldorf is that duel Hanover (18th place) and VfB Stuttgart (16th place) on the weekend and thus take the points each other. For Dusseldorf, the duel against Schalke is thus a so-called “6-point game”.
Friedhelm Funkel has to renounce Diego Contento (not yet used in 2018/2019), Oliver Fink (long-term injured) and Kenan Karaman (Joker in the storm). Whether Andre Hoffmann could play from the beginning is still uncertain. In addition to the winning bets, the over / under segment also offers an interesting option. In the last three home games of Fortuna fell more than 2.5 goals. On the other hand, fewer than 2.5 goals have been scored in the last five Schalke-based games, including the Champions League. Betting on stats or series could be an exciting alternative here. However, we will focus more on a classic 1X2 tip.
The knot seems to have burst. The Royal Blues won the last two games. In the Champions League managed a close but very deserved 1-0 against Lokomotiv Moscow. On Matchday 6, the first victory against FSV Mainz 05 could also be entered in the Bundesliga. Again, it was at the end of 1: 0. After the disastrous start Tedesco can therefore breathe at least for a short time, but a victory against Dusseldorf is a must. In order to live up to one’s own claims, a Champions League participant must not let go of a newcomer.
What in the match Dusseldorf vs. Schalke speaks against a hint on S04, are the Reisestrapazen. First you had to make a long way to Moscow and now it’s time to pack your bags again! This could have a negative effect on the freshness of the players, especially because Friedhelm Funkel’s team was able to train well in the whole week. Nevertheless, we believe that a Champions League participant has to cope with that.
Dominico Tedesco has to give up on Benjamin Stambouli (long-term injured), Bastian Oczipka (long-term injured), Johannes Geis (injured for a long time, more of a reservist), Steven Skrzybski (injured for a long time, reservist), Amine Harit (thigh injury) and presumably Alessandro Scoop (always an alternative in midfield) and Sascha Riether (tendon injury).
