Borussia Dortmund's Bundesliga title challenge Is really on life support now. Having looked favourites to claim top spot for so long, they are now sure to come up short should Bayern Munich win either of their final two fixtures. Bayern do have two toughish games though, and all Dortmund can do now is win their games and hope for the best. First up its this home clash with tenth placed Fortuna Düsseldorf.

Fortuna Düsseldorf picked up the points in a 2-1 success in the reverse of this fixture. The most recent league clash between the sides here came way back in 2012, with that game finishing in a 1-1 draw.

Marius Wolf and Marco Reus are both suspended for the home side, whilst Achraf Hakimi, Dan-Axel Zagadou and Roman Bürki are out injured. Diego Contento and Jean Zimmer miss out for Fortuna Düsseldorf.

Dortmund have been excellent at home this season in losing only one of 16. That defeat did come in their most recent game here though when they pretty much self-combusted against Schalke. They have impressively scored two or more goals in every league home game.

Fortuna Düsseldorf's away form has picked up in the second half of the season with four wins in their last nine, scoring two or more in three of their last five.

Dortmund have to go on the front foot here which should lead to an open game. We will take the home side to come out on top in a shootout.

Prediction: Borussia Dortmund 4 - 2 Fortuna Düsseldorf
