  • Competition: 2.Bundesliga
  • Date: 27th January 2023
  • Kickoff: 17:30 UTC / 18:30 CET
  • Venue: Merkur Spiel-Arena

The 2.Bundesliga returns for the first time since the World Cup break as Fortuna Dusseldorf and Magdeburg meet in the 18th game week of the German second tier competition. Fortuna are conflicted at a seventh place on the points table and top-four remains within reach in the next few weeks as third-placed Kaiserslautern remain just three points ahead. Magdeburg will surely be one of the weakest opponents that Fortuna will face in the next few weeks, but with seven wins and draws from 17 games played, this relegation-battling side cannot be underestimated totally. This is because Magdeburg are actually the ninth-best away side in the league with four wins and draws from nine outings. Fortuna will have to fight for their sixth home win of 2022-23.

Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Magdeburg Betting Pick #1: Fortuna to win

It is surprising that a Fortuna Dusseldorf win is priced at 1.70 odds at the time of writing. This is surely due to Magdeburg's above average away form, but considering Fortuna's five wins from nine hosted games, we do not think that they will be rattled. In fact, the one and only head to head meeting between these teams had ended in Fortuna's favour too, last year. We are blindly going for a Fortuna Dusseldorf win in this game.

Pick #2: BTTS & Over 2.5 goals

Magdeburg might be relegation-threatened right now, but they come into this game with a splendid scoring form. The visitors have scored against each of their last five opponents in the friendlies and 2.Bundesliga. Also, they have scored a total of 14 goals in their nine outings, making them one of the top-ten 2.Bundesliga sides when it comes to away form. Magdeburg should get at least one goal on Friday, but Fortuna shall be able to outscore them with a 2-1 win.

Fortuna Dusseldorf Team News

There are as many as three Fortuna players who could all get back to training and probably the first team by next weekend (Early February). Emmanuel Iyoha and Andre Hoffmann both suffered muscle injuries at the end of last year and will be back next week, and so will be Nicolas Gavory who is recovering from his own Tendon injury. On-loan striker Kwadwo Baah will take a few more weeks to come back from his hip injury which he suffered just a week back in a friendly.

Players to watch: Dawid Kownacki (6 goals and 6 assists), Shinta Appelkamp (34 chances created this season), Matthias Zimmermann (2.2 interceptions per 90 mins)

FC Magdeburg Team News

Threatened by relegation, Magdeburg will require each and every player from their roster to survive in the 2. Bundesliga this season. The away side has been fortunate to not carry a lot of injuries. Luca Schuler's foot injury is expected to be recovered by early February and we might see him at least on the bench next weekend. The only player who will not be in the fight for this relegation race will be defender Belal Halbouni who is out for the season with a cruciate ligament injury.

Players to watch: Moritz Kwarteng (4 goals and 2 assists), Baris Atik (21 chances created this season), Daniel Elfadli (2.5 interceptions per 90 mins)
