Fortuna Dusseldorf face an important test this weekend when they welcome St. Pauli to the Esprit Arena on Sunday afternoon. Following their 4-3 loss to Jahn Regensburg last weekend, Tipbet’s partner club are now three 2. Bundesliga matches without a win and they are a point behind leaders Nuremberg.

Given that Holstein Kiel are seven points behind and currently occupying the play-off position, it is much too early to worry about dropping out of the automatic promotion positions, but three points this weekend would certainly ease fans’ worries. The league leaders are expected to beat Greuther Furth on Saturday, and if that is the case then Fortuna will be playing catch-up once again in their match.

An alarming trend for Friedhelm Funkel’s side is that they have conceded eight times in their past three fixtures, so keeping a clean sheet would be a reassuring boost. Given their strong attack – with 38 goals in 24 matches, which is already more than in all of last season – this would almost certainly mean that they get three points as well.

St. Pauli finished seventh last season and a repeat of that would be considered a success. They are currently ninth, though level on 34 points with both Union Berlin and Bielefeld above them due to their poor goal difference of -10; St. Pauli have the worst attack in the league’s top 14 teams but did beat Holstein Kiel 3-2 in their last game.

Tipbet have over 60 markets to bet on for this weekend’s 2. Bundesliga meeting. Dusseldorf are currently offered at 2.15 for victory, and this would keep the pressure on Nuremberg whilst solidifying an automatic promotion place. St. Pauli will have to be at their best to get a 10th win of the season, and this is at 3.50. Predict the correct score now.
