Bayern Munich vs Fortuna Dusseldorf Preview
Bayern’s great run of form in 2020 shows no signs of abating and with 13 wins and a draw from their 14 matches this year, the Bavarians have been superb.
The top scorers in the Bundesliga, Bayern also boast the division’s meanest defence, and having kept six clean sheets in their last seven competitive games, there seem to be few weaknesses in the side.
Dusseldorf, for their part, have the second worst attack in the Bundesliga and are unlikely to cause an extremely solid Bayern outfit too many problems in the final third.
Opposing the visitors to score makes plenty of sense and when these two sides met earlier this season, the Munich outfit triumphed by a 4-0 score line.
