Football betting tips for Dusseldorf – Paderborn

Thank God, but the Bundesliga kicks off again after a long two months break because of coronavirus. On Saturday Fortuna Dusseldorf will host Paderborn in a game from the 26th round. Let’s preview it during our football betting tips this weekend.


For Fortuna Dusseldorf the restart of the league comes in a moment when the team is at the relegation playoff spot, being 16th with 22 points won. Fortuna are not in a position to continue losing points, because the 17th Werder Bremen are just four points behind. The best news for Fortuna’s fans would be if the team has found a way to improve during the pause.


Fortuna Dusseldorf’s manager Uwe Rosler do not have any other choice, but once again to rely on the 32-years old veteran Rouwen Hennings in attack. The former Burnley striker is the leading goalscorer of the team, having scored 11 Bundesliga goals so far. With 4 goals scored, Turkish international Kenan Karaman is another reliable option in attack.


Paderborn’s position in the Bundesliga is even worse, because they are at the bottom of the league being 18th with 16 points. This fixture against a competitor for survival is a perfect opportunity for Paderborn to make a step towards salvation. The question is – can they?


Before the break Paderborn didn’t really do much in the league, losing four consecutive times. The manager Steffen Baumgart is up to a very difficult task, because his team clearly lacks enough quality to be competitive to most of the teams in the Bundesliga.


That’s our football betting tips this weekend for the fixture from the 26th round between Fortuna Dusseldorf and Paderborn. For both teams this is a great chance win some crucial points against a direct competitor for survival. Fortuna have the home advantage here, but it’s not clear how the long break affected these two sides.
