Bayern Munich v Dusseldorf Predictions and Preview
Bayern Munich are unbeaten in their last 11 matches against Fortuna Dusseldorf, winning nine and drawing the others 2-2 and 3-3. The Bavarian giants have smashed in 34 goals to Dusseldorf’s nine in that spell, with 24 of those coming in the last six meetings between the sides.
At an average of exactly four per game, and with Bayern enjoying such superiority over their relegation-threatened visitors, it’s almost impossible to predict anything other than a home win in this game.

Bayern to win by four or more goals
Bayern to win 4-0
Lewandowski to score first
Bayern’s margin of victory over Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday was only small, but the 1-0 win at the Westfalenstadion was seismic in terms of this season’s title race. Die Roten now enjoy a seven-point lead over Dortmund at the top of the table, and an eighth straight title appears a formality.
Perhaps a sense of complacency and the home players resting on their laurels is Dusseldorf’s only avenue to snatching a result at the Allianz Arena on Saturday evening. Die Flingeraner failed to win any of their five matches prior to Wednesday’s home game against Schalke though, and they have a miserable record against Bayern.
That’s why the visitors are priced almost out of the ballpark for this game at 40/1 for the win. That would be the Rheinlanders’ first win away to Bayern since 1991, against a team who are unbeaten in their last 18 matches in all competitions, winning 17.
Bayern are 1/12 to win their 10th game in a row here, having scored 27 goals and kept six clean sheets in their previous nine. Even with Tolisso, Coutinho and Niklas Sule out injured for the hosts, a draw in this game still seems incredibly unlikely at 14/1.
One to watch for Bayern Munich: Josh Kimmich settled Tuesday’s contest against Dortmund – and probably the title race – with a sublime lob. It was only the versatile German’s third Bundesliga goal of the season, but he is 12/1 to break the deadlock this weekend for the second time in a matter of days.
One to watch for Dusseldorf: Rouwen Hennings is Dusseldorf’s top scorer this season with 15 goals in 30 games in league and cup. He is 18/1 to continue his fine season with the opener here.
Long shot: Bayern have averaged exactly four goals per game against Dusseldorf in the last six meetings between the teams, and have scored four times against Die Flingeraner in each of their last two clashes. Bayern are 7/1 to win this game 4-0, rising to 20/1 with 41-goal Robert Lewandowski scoring first.
