Bundesliga betting tips: Fortuna Dusseldorf v Schalke

Watching Schalke has been a pretty painful experience in 2020 and they look worth taking on again on Wednesday night.

Don’t be fooled by their still-respectable Bundesliga position of eighth; they’ve now taken just four points from their last nine games, scoring a paltry two goals in the process.

Since the resumption of the league, they’ve lost 4-0 at Dortmund and, most worryingly, 3-0 at home to lowly Augsburg on Sunday when they were toothless in attack despite seeing plenty of the ball.

Boss David Wagner is under increasing pressure.

He’ll hope for the gloom to be lifted here as Fortuna do have the league’s joint-worst attack having netted only 29 goals in their 27 games. However, they looked lively enough against Koln on Sunday when they led 2-0 late on only to end up drawing 2-2.

Perhaps the key to this match is how they are mentally after that setback – had they held on they would be just one point from a position of safety.

However, their manager, Uwe Rosler, will doubtless have been stressing the many positive aspects of that performance – Koln came into it on the back of a decent string of results – and given what these two teams have produced since the action returned earlier this month, the hosts look a decent bet to win the game at 8/5.

Another possible angle is a cards one – Fortuna have collected the most (66) of any side in the top flight this season.

Specifically, Niko Giesselmann to be carded at 11/4 is worth considering.

He’s been booked in seven of his 22 Bundesliga games this season and is set to continue on the left of a three-man defence here.

Schalke have a strong preference for attacking down the right – stats show 42% of their attacking play comes on that flank – and so Giesselmann should be in the firing line.

However, it will be worth checking which ref is in charge first – that won’t be announced until the morning of the game.

    Match Report - Fortuna Dusseldorf 2 - 1 Schalke 04

    Fortuna Dusseldorf piled the pressure on Schalke boss David Wagner with a 2-1 win that eased their own relegation worries.

    Schalke, without a win since January, saw their frustrations deepen as they allowed Dusseldorf to come from behind in a 2-1 defeat – with the aid of more poor goalkeeping from Markus Schubert.

    Wagner’s side led through Weston McKennie’s 53rd-minute header, but 10 minutes later Schubert was at fault as he failed to deal with Kevin Stoger’s free-kick and Rouwen Hennings headed in.

    And five minutes later, Kenan Karaman headed in following a corner to give Uwe Rosler’s side all three points.

    Hoffenheim are on the fringes of the European places after a 3-1 win over Cologne in which both sides finished with 10 men.

    Christoph Baumgartner put Hoffenheim ahead 11 minutes in and Cologne’s problems grew when Sebastian Bornauw was dismissed in the 26th minute.

    Baumgartner doubled the lead in the first minute of the second half and Steven Zuber added another two minutes later.

    Hoffenheim captain Benjamin Hubner was the next to see red, five minutes into the second half, helping Cologne get a goal back through Florian Kainz but there would be no comeback.

    Ridle Baku ended a run of 40 Bundesliga games without a goal as he put Mainz in front at Union Berlin, but the match ended in a draw as Marcus Ingvartsen’s free-kick levelled things up.

    Union played more than half the match with 10 men as Robert Andrich was booked twice before the break. Augsburg and Paderborn shared the points following a goalless draw.

    RB Leipzig were denied second place in the Bundesliga as Krzysztof Piatek struck an 82nd-minute penalty for Hertha Berlin in a 2-2 draw.

    Liverpool loanee Marko Grujic had given Hertha a ninth-minute lead with a well-struck volley but Lukas Klostermann levelled midway through the half with a glancing header.

    Leipzig had Marcel Halstenberg dismissed for a second bookable offence just after the hour but led thanks to a horrible goalkeeping error from Rune Jarstein, who fumbled Patrik Schick’s shot five minutes later.

    But Piatek had the final word after former Everton man Ademola Lookman fouled Matheus Cunha.

    The draw keeps Leipzig in third, two points behind Borussia Dortmund following their 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich on Tuesday.
