Frankfurt vs Dusseldorf Prediction & Match Preview

Sunday, September 1 – 12:00 EST – Commerzbank-Arena

Frankfurt started the season with a 1-0 win at home to Hoffenheim. They then dropped a game to RB Leipzig which is understandable. Leipzig are looking to be one of the top teams in Germany this season. They will want to bounce back on Sunday and avoid losing two in a row. Moreover, Frankfurt clinched Europa League qualification on Thursday, as they defeated Strasbourg 3-1 on aggregate. They will therefore be taking part in the group stage of the competition this season. They will hope that this result will give them a confidence boost when facing Dusseldorf on Sunday. Frankfurt will only have two days of rest to recuperate their energies for the Bundesliga encounter, but they will be pleased to play this match at home in front of their crowd.

Dusseldorf started their season on the right foot. They put together an impressive performance in their opener. Dusseldorf traveled to Werder Bremen where they secured a 3-1 away win. They will look to upset their opponents once more on Sunday. Unlike Frankfurt, Dusseldorf have only this match to focus on. They will look to capitalize on Frankfurt’s fatigue. Two keys players have stood out for Dusseldorf this season. American keeper Zack Steffen has been brilliant. He is on loan from Manchester City and looking to prove that he is capable of playing European football. Fellow American midfielder Alfredo Morales has also played extremely well as of late.
