    Dortmund have been the very definition of inconsistent this season in the Bundesliga. With champions and rivals Bayern Munich struggling for results, this season was a golden opportunity for BVB to mount a realistic title challenge. However, Dortmund have failed to build up any momentum.

    Lucien Favre’s team host Fortuna Dusseldorf on Saturday afternoon at the Signal Iduna Park, as BVB look for a return to the Champions League spots.

    Dortmund have in reality been hard to beat, suffering just one defeat in their last ten league games. However, the home side has been unable to put together any sort of winning run in recent months in the German top-flight.

    BVB’s recent league games have offered plenty of value for money when it comes to goals of late, as 11 of their last 13 matches have produced over 2.5 goals.

    Favre’s team have a strong home record in the Bundesliga, having recorded wins in five of their previous seven league games at the Signal Iduna Park. BVB have been lethal in front of goal in the German top-flight on home soil, scoring at least two goals in 22 of their last 23 matches.

    Fortuna Dusseldorf have endured a difficult start to their Bundesliga campaign, as they are 15th place in the table, having collected just 12 points from their opening 13 league outings.

    A 1-1 draw at Hoffenheim last time out means that Dusseldorf have won just two of their last 12 league matches while failing to win in their last three Bundesliga games.

    Dusseldorf have been travel sick of late in the Bundesliga, winning just once in their last ten away games in the German top-flight. They have also lost four of their last six Bundesliga games on their travels.

    Forebet predicts that Dortmund will get back to winning ways by recording a victory in a high-scoring encounter.
