Dusseldorf take on the visitors Bochum in the second leg of Bundesliga relegation finals. First leg result: 3-0. The match will be played on Monday, April 27th at Merkur Spiel-Arena (Dusseldorf).


Fortuna Düsseldorf showed good football. The Red and Whites have a history that includes winning the national championship once and reaching the cup final twice in a row. However, these are now memories, and their recent achievements are more modest. Notably, after their latest promotion to the Bundesliga, they managed to avoid immediate relegation and only dropped down after the following season. Currently, the team is performing quite well. Reaching the semi-finals of the cup was a significant accomplishment, even with the caveat of a favorable draw — luck alone isn't enough, as evidenced by Bayern Munich's and other top teams' embarrassing exits from the competition. Concurrently, Fortuna Düsseldorf have been impressive in the league, though this wasn’t enough to catch up to the top two teams, who were clearly superior in Bundesliga 2 this season. Consequently, the club entered the promotion playoffs and virtually sealed their fate with a commanding 3-0 away win.


Bochum are at risk of losing their nickname. They are determined not to leave the Bundesliga, which they only rejoined in 2021 after an 11-year stint in the second division. For the past two seasons, they have managed respectable results, securing their spot in the top flight. This season, they didn’t appear to be relegation candidates either. When relegation threatened, they replaced their coach with Butscher, who led them to crucial victories against Hoffenheim and, more importantly, direct rival Union Berlin. However, they needed at least one more point, but instead suffered heavy defeats to Bayer Leverkusen and Werder Bremen. This gave the capital club a chance, and The Iron Ones took it, winning their final match against Freiburg to equal Bochum on points and pushing them to the relegation playoff spot due to tiebreakers. It seems Bochum couldn’t recover from this blow, starting their key home playoff match with three unanswered goals conceded.


In the 2020/2021 season, when both were in Bundesliga 2, the Unbreakables on their way to long-awaited promotion defeated the Red and Whites twice. However, Fortuna later won a couple of friendly matches. It’s hard to believe in a dramatic turnaround for Bochum or even that they will put up a final fight. It’s more likely that the Red and Whites will score at least one goal against their opponents.
