Dusseldorf vs Schalke PredictionStruggling to get on their feet since the league restart, Schalke 04 have been condemned to heavy defeats in their last two games.

Match status: 2019/20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 28
Kick-off:
Venue: Merkur Spiel-Arena (Düsseldorf)
With a top-six finish still within reach, the Royal Blues will be looking to put their recent woes behind them and getting back to winning ways. A game against relegation-threatened Fortuna Dusseldorf presents Schalke 04 with a real shot at redemption.

As the visitors have struggled, so also have the hosts. Fortuna Dusseldorf have been underwhelming so far this season and are just three points above the drop-zone. To avoid plunging into the relegation places, Rheinlander have to improve performance levels over the coming weeks.

The home side will have to be at their very best to have any chances of staging an upset against Schalke 04 this Wednesday. However, given that the Royal Blues have had their fair share of struggles over the last few weeks, Dusseldorf cannot be ruled out of this one. 

Expect an entertaining and enthralling game of football when these two desperate sides square off at the Merkur Spiel-Arena on Wednesday evening.

Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Schalke 04 Team News

Required to produce a positive result on the road last time out against FC Koln, Fortuna Dusseldorf grinded out a hard-fought 2-2 draw to post a point on the board. The draw must have hurt the visitors so bad, given they were two goals ahead with just two minutes of normal time left to play.

Dusseldorf outclassed Koln in every single department on the pitch and got two well deserved goals in the process. However, a major breakdown in the final knockings of the game led to some unfortunate events for Uwe Rosler’s side.

Saving a penalty earlier in the second period, FC Koln managed to find a route back into the game with two quick-fire goals in as many minutes, condemning Dusseldorf to a draw. Rosler must have given his players the hair-dryer treatment after the game as he watched them squander a very comfortable lead towards the end of the game.

Schalke 04, on the other hand, were hammered 0-3 away at FC Augsburg on the last match-day, the latter dominating proceedings for large parts of the game. With the scintillating football on display, the hosts could easily have won by a larger winning margin but had to settle for three goals in the end.

The Royal Blues started the game on the back-foot, conceding a goal as early as in the sixth minute, setting them up nicely for a loss. They managed to hold off their resilient foes from there on, but were ultimately punished towards the end of the game with Augsburg making sure of the three points with two more goals.

For this fixture, no side can be considered clear favorites for the win as both teams have had their fair share of struggles over the last few weeks. The home side are winless in 18 of their previous 21 league fixtures and have failed to register a single win this year. Also, they have managed only three clean sheets over the last 12 months.

Schalke 04 are also sporting a terrible record with five losses from their preceding six games across all competitions. Also, they have failed to register a win in their last eleven games on the bounce, conceding no less than three goals in four of their previous five fixtures.
