Fortuna Dusseldorf vs. Augsburg Betting Preview – Bundesliga, June 20

Fortuna Dusseldorf vs. Augsburg Bundesliga June 20

Although Augsburg is just about assured of its top-flight status for another season, there is a feeling of a relegation scrap going on here.

Dusseldorf is definitely still involved, even after a very good result in the week in Leipzig, and still needs to do a lot of work if it is to be safe as well.

BetOnline has Fortuna Dusseldorf as the favorite to win here, and it is the absolute need for points from the home side that makes even this price an attractive bet. Augsburg is all but safe and will be taking a more casual approach to this game.

Match Preview

It seems very unfair that Fortuna Dusseldorf can play RB Leipzig in the Red Bull Arena, go 2-0 down with less than half an hour to play, and then come back to salvage a point and still be regarded as one of the favorites to go down thanks to Mainz recording an incredible win of its own in midweek.

Manager Uwe Rosler must have thought that his players scoring two goals in the final five minutes of that game against Leipzig would have had more of an effect on the league standings. But now his team must win both of its remaining games to have any chance of avoiding the relegation playoff at best.

Augsburg’s players, on the other hand, will be far more relaxed about how the remaining two games of the season will go. The home defeat to Hoffenheim on Wednesday means that Augsburg could still finish in the bottom three. But it would have to take a huge swing in the goal difference.

The fight might not be there for Heiko Herrlich’s team, but it was arguably his appointment in March that saved Augsburg’s place in the Bundesliga. The eight points won since the restart has been just enough to keep the club up, and even losing this one and the final game against Leipzig should not change that.

Prediction and Pick

Pick
  • Fortuna Dusseldorf to Win
    -110

I think I would be backing Dusseldorf to win this one even if Augsburg desperately needed the points as well. But as the visitors are just about safe, I am absolutely convinced that Uwe Rosler’s team will win this one. It might still be too little too late for Fortuna, but it will give itself more of a chance of staying up.
