Bundesliga: Fortuna Dusseldorf – Schalke 04
- Fortuna Dusseldorf have conceded 33 home league goals.
- Eight of the last ten Fortuna Dusseldorf league and cup games have seen both teams score
- Fortuna Dusseldorf have only kept one clean sheet in their last eight home league goals and that was against Paderborn who are bottom of the league.
Fortuna Dusseldorf are 16th in the league but might just fancy a home win against Schalke 04 who are eighth and in terrible form. Dusseldorf are currently in the relegation play-off position and three points from safety. They are on a five-game unbeaten run in the league but the last four have all ended in draws with just a single win in the last ten. Their Sunday away was at FC Koln and ended 2-2. Home form for Dusseldorf has been a big problem with only three league victories and six losses. They have no win their last five home league fixtures and just one in the last eight.
Schalke 04 are two points behind the final Europa League qualifying position. They had the chance to get into the top six at the weekend with both Wolfsburg and Freiburg losing, but Schalke lost 3-0 at home to Augsburg making it a two straight losses since the season began with no goals scored and seven conceded. They have only one win in their last nine league fixtures with 16 goals conceded in the last five. They have only won four of their away league games. This week sees them facing two of the bottom three and they have to try and win at least one of them to keep in the Europa League hunt.
