Ingolstadt vs Dusseldorf Prediction & Betting tips
Ingolstadt – Dusseldorf, the front-runner is visiting perhaps the most formidable team in the league. Fortuna Dusseldorf has played with 30 points from the first 13 games after the relegation battle the preseason hardly considered possible first third of the season and is now unquestionably among the hot promotion candidates. Meanwhile, FC Ingolstadt, which has been hotly traded in the summer, is back in fifth place after 13 penalties from the last five matches.
Eight times both clubs met each other so far, between 2010 and 2015 always in the 2nd Bundesliga. With three wins in three draws and two defeats Ingolstadt has the slightly better record. In Ingolstadt, however, the Schanzer won two out of four duels in a draw and a Fortuna success.
With three defeats in a row FC Ingolstadt has made a classic false start, which was hardly mitigated by the 2-1 in the Cup at TSV 1860 Munich. Coach Maik Walpurgis then had to leave early and Stefan Leitl took over interim and now completely. With a 1-0 win at SpVgg Greuther Fürth Leitl made a perfect start, but then lost to Erzgebirge Aue (1: 2). After that, FC St. Pauli (4-0), MSV Duisburg (2-2) and VfL Bochum (2-0) continued to change. Only with a 3-0 win over SV Darmstadt 98 did the Schanzer break into the road to success. After a 2-2 win at Dynamo Dresden Ingolstadt won against 1. FC Heidenheim (3-0), in the Cup at SpVgg Greuther Fürth (3-1), at Arminia Bielefeld (3-1) and at 1. FC Nuremberg (2: 1) four times in a row.
Currently there are no failures. Marcel Gaus returns to the left after defending a suspension and Tobias Levels returns to the right. Christian Träsch moves for midfield and displaces Tobias Schröck.
Probable lineup: Nyland – Levels, Matip, Wahl, Gaus – Träsch – Morales, Cohen – Pledl, Kittel – Kutschke
After a 2: 2 on Matchday 1 against Eintracht Braunschweig Fortuna Dusseldorf has shown early on a strong form and the following games at Erzgebirge Aue (2: 0), in the DFB Cup at Arminia Bielefeld (3: 1 nV), against 1. FC Kaiserslautern (2: 0), SV Sandhausen (2: 1) and 1. FC Union Berlin (3: 2) all won. The first defeat at the SpVgg Greuther Fürth (1: 3) brought Düsseldorf then not at all from the concept, because then was against the SSV Jahn Regensburg (1-0), at FC St. Pauli (2-0), against the MSV Duisburg (3: 1), won at Arminia Bielefeld (2: 0) and against SV Darmstadt 98 (1: 0) for the second time this season five times in a row. Most recently, however, starting with the Cup away against Borussia Mönchengladbach (0: 1) was not really round. In the league, neither VfL Bochum (0-0) nor 1. FC Heidenheim (2-1) won, but at least each scored.
Kaan Ayhan (yellow-red) and Florian Neuhaus (subsequent suspension) miss the top game as well as the injured Michael Rensing. But Oliver Fink is supposed to reappear after adductor problems.
Probable lineup: Wolf – Schauerte, Bormuth, Hoffmann, Gießelmann – Bodzek, Sobottka – Room, Fink, Raman – Hennings
