Dusseldorf vs FSV Frankfurt Betting Tips and Match Preview – 24/05/2015
With their promotion hopes ended long ago, Dusseldorf returned to winning ways at Sandhausen last weekend. Erwin Hoffer proved his worth with a goal and assist in a comfortable 2-0 success that brought an end to a six-game winless run.
Dusseldorf now go into the final game of the campaign once again playing for pride as well as the financial bonus associated with a higher league finish. Currently eighth in the standings, they could end the season as low as 11th or as high as sixth.
Visitors FSV, by contrast, are unlikely to be quite as relaxed after slipping into the bottom three for the first time since Matchday 10 following their inopportune 3-1 defeat at home to Union Berlin.
Head coach Benno Mohlmann paid for that sorry display with his job, with Tomas Oral handed the unenviable task of bringing an end to a catastrophic run of 11 games without a win – not to mention saving the club from the drop.
If they can break the cycle, victory in Dusseldorf should – depending on results around them – at least be enough for the relegation play-offs – Frankfurt’s current position – but anything else puts them in danger of being relegated automatically.
Without a win on the road since 15 February, victory looks like a tall order for FSV and given the relatively little amount of time Oral has to work with his team, I think Over 2.5 goals will be on the card for the final home game.
Dusseldorf head coach Taskin Aksoy’s five changes appeared to have the desired effect on Matchday 33. Out went Maurica Pluntke, Oliver Fink (injured), Kaan Akca, Tugrul Erat and Joel Pohjanpalo, with Robin Urban, Bruno Soares, Andreas Lambertz, Charlison Benschop and Erwin Hoffer coming in to breathe new life into the starting XI.
It wouldn’t be a surprise to see a few more fresh faces on the final day, but Benschop is suspended after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season in last Sunday’s 2-0 success over Sandhausen.
Suspended: Benschop (one match)
Doubtful: Bolly, Tah, Bodzek (all with knocks)
Injured/Unavailable: Gartner (ankle), Avevor (bruising), Pinto (jaw), Fink (adductor)
New Frankfurt head coach Tomas Oral, meanwhile, will have his own ideas about which players have what it takes to come through the right side of a relegation dogfight.
Amine Aoudia and Marc-Andre Kruska could return after being dropped on Matchday 33, but Mario Engels, Denis Epstein, Faton Toski and Timm Golley are all unavailable, while Odise Roshi is suspended.
Oral will also hope to hand Zafer Yelen a bit more playing time – possibly even a starting berth – after the midfielder made his return from injury as a 78th-minute substitute in the 3-1 defeat to Union Berlin.
Suspended: Roshi (one match)
Doubtful: Pirson (eye), Azaouagh (fitness)
Injured/unavailable: Epstein (pelvis), Toski (tendonitis), Golley (hip), Engels (thigh)
RECOMMENDATION: OVER 2.5 GOALS
