At this stage of the 2. Bundesliga season, with just nine matches to play, it is looking very likely that Tipbet’s German partner club Fortuna Dusseldorf will be playing in the first division next season. They will, of course, be targeting to reach that goal by finishing as winners.

The season bets at, which are available for all major European and world leagues, show that Fortuna are 1.95 to win the title having seen their odds shorted as the season has gone on. Nuremberg (at 2.05) are their only major rivals.

F95’s 2-1 win over St. Pauli last weekend means that Holstein Kiel, in third, are seven points away, and there is a 10-point gap to fourth place so, barring a disastrous set of results, the club will be playing in the top-tier of German football next season for the first time since 2013. Recent defensive performances will need to be improved, though, as the league leaders have conceded nine goals in their previous four matches.

MSV Duisburg are their opponents on Sunday and the club are in the promotion battle themselves. Having just been promoted from the third division, they are in fourth after a fantastic season and just three points off a play-off. Finishing second seems unlikely and Duisburg are eight points from that berth after being hammered 5-0 by Holstein Kiel last week.

Tipbet have plentiful odds for this and all the weekend’s 2. Bundesliga action. Dusseldorf will have to perform well to pick up a crucial three points in the title race and they are available at 2.95. MSV, at 2.40, could do with three points to keep their promotion hopes alive, while a draw (3.40) would keep both in contention.
