Fortuna Düsseldorf form and stats

Fortuna Düsseldorf's results here at Merkur Spiel-Arena in the 2. Bundesliga have been very modest with 1 victory, 3 draws and 2 defeats.

Fortuna Düsseldorf faced defeat in their previous match, away at Dynamo Dresden (0-1). Attacking player Emmanuel Iyoha bested all the other players in that match and was awarded a match rating of 7.63 out of 10. Iyoha hit two key passes.

Heartbreak before that as Fortuna Düsseldorf lost 1-2 at Hansa Rostock's place.

The bookmakers consider this a fairly even contest. One could say only the home advantage separates the teams. It could be relevant to look at how Düsseldorf have performed in matches similar to this (as small favourites). Our database has found 13 matches with the results: Won seven, drawn two and lost four.

Düsseldorf have proved capable of finding the net in their games here at Merkur Spiel-Arena with 11 goals in 6 league matches. Defensively it’s touch-and-go for the home team as 11 goals have been conceded.

Heidenheim form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Heidenheim so far with only 6 points returning home. The records show 2-0-4 (win-draw-lose). Three consecutive losses in away matches means Heidenheim are growing more and more desperate for a good performance on the road.

Heidenheim are travelling after their nice 2-1 home win in the 2. Bundesliga against Holstein Kiel (placed 16th). World class coaching! That was the thoughts of manager F. Schmidt when Robert Leipertz scored the winning goal after coming on as a substitute in the 62nd minute. Patrick Mainka was the top performer of the team in that game with a match score of 8.3. The defender Mainka served one assist, hit two key passes and won 2 of 7 duels.

It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Erzgebirge Aue wasn't a success with a 0-2 loss.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Heidenheim playing away and similar expectations, we found 19 relevant matches. Results were three Heidenheim wins, seven draws and nine defeats.

Many goals are not expected from the visiting Heidenheim as they have only managed to score 5 times from 6 away games in the league. The Heidenheim manager F. Schmidt has some worries about the defense as 12 goals have been conceded in these travels.

Head 2 Head

Head-2-head stats last ten meetings: three - two - five (Düsseldorf wins - draws - Heidenheim wins). As for goals, five matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), five had two or less.
