Tobias Gourlay’s headed to Germany for a Bundesliga 2 match that might not be as straightforward as it seems for Fortuna Dusseldorf
Fortuna Dusseldorf v Hansa Rostock
Yesterday’s bet was on an Aussie A-League match that’s only just about to kick-off – and the price has only got better since we wrote the preview…
Today we’re in Germany for the Bundesliga 2 clash between 13th-placed Fortuna Dusseldorf and 11th-placed Hansa Rostock. The hosts are odds-on favourites but we’ve found reasons to believe the visitors can at least avoid defeat this evening.
Fortuna have won 3/4 at the Merkur Spiel-Arena, but two of those wins came against the bottom two teams in the league. Against everyone else this term, Daniel Thioune’s men have won only 2/12.
Promoted Hansa on a winning streak of four home and away. On the road, they are W6-D4-L4 – with all four defeats coming against teams now in the top six. Fortuna are not at that level, so we’ll take the odds-against price on Hansa to avoid defeat this evening.
