Fortuna Dusseldorf, who are sponsored by Tipbet, take part in their third game of the 2016/17 season on Saturday when they welcome to 1. FC Kaiserslautern and look to continue their excellent opening two matches to the campaign. They are on four points and will be very pleased to be unbeaten having faced strong opponents.

They began against Eintracht Braunschweig – a side that only just missed out on promotion to the Bundesliga last year and can be considered up there with the title favourites. Fortuna then beat Erzgebirge Aue 2-0 and progressed in the Cup with victory over Arminia Bielefeld. This suggests that results from last season – where they drew too many and struggled for wins – will be improved upon in this. If they can win then they will keep the pressure on the three sides that are currently on maximum points.

1. FC Kaiserslautern have struggled so far in the 2. Bundesliga. They have just a single point from their two matches and this has left them in 14th. They finished 13th last season and if they do not improve their form quickly then they could easily go into a fight to avoid the drop to the 3. Bundesliga. Recent years have been both disappointing and a surprise – from 2012 – 2015 they did not drop below fourth place and nearly got promoted to the Bundesliga.
