FORTUNA DUSSELDORF VS BAYER LEVERKUSEN
KICK OFF: Wednesday 26th Sept 2018 | 18:30 CET
BUNDESLIGA WK5 | ESPRIT ARENA
Will Newly-promoted Dusseldorf deny Leverkusen a much –needed victory?
Bundesliga’s newcomer Fortuna Dusseldorf welcome Bayer Leverkusen in what seems a must-win match for the visitors. Leverkusen has lost three straight games in the league this season, and they will want to avoid another consecutive defeat against a newly-promoted side.
Dusseldorf lost their first game in top-flight, but have improved to record a draw and a win in their last match. The goals have been coming, and they have proved themselves to be competitive in the league. They like to set out in a 5-3-2 formation, but you’d be forgiven to think that they set out to defend. As a matter of fact, they have scored in all their league games so far.
Bayer Leverkusen is winless in the league, but they will be confident of overcoming a newly promoted opponent. They haven’t been creating enough goals to win games and also need to sort issues at the back given that they have already let in eight goals so far.
Leverkusen are experienced veterans in the league and are capable of grinding out a victory against Dusseldorf.
Key Match Facts
- Dusseldorf has found the net in each of their games in the league.
