Dusseldorf was convincingly defeated by the Munich giant in the last round, playing as a visiting team. They had no chance against Bayern and that was obvious from the start.
Jorgensen scored an own goal in the fifteenth minute, and so to speak, the guest’s downfall began. Pavard and Lewandowski increased their team’s advantage until the end of the first part of the game to a great 3:0. In the second half, the Bayern’s machinery just continued where it left off, and with two more goals over Lewandowski and Davies, the final score in this match was set, a great 5:0 for the Bavarians.
Dusseldorf is in the sixteenth place in the table with twenty-seven points. The position that leads to the play-out phase, in case they don’t improve soon.

Hoffenheim recorded a very important victory in the last round, playing as a visiting team, against Mainz. The match was expected to be tough and so it was.
Both teams had their chances, but the guests were a little more concrete at the end of an attack. The first big chance for a goal, the guests had in the twenty-seventh minute from a penalty kick, but Zuber was not accurate.
However, this did not disturb their focus and in the forty-third minute, Bebou scored. The continuation of the game went off in occasional dangerous attacks by both teams, but no one managed to score.
Forward Belfodil (5/0) is injured, same as defender Stafylidis (7/1). Defensive midfielder Grillitsch (26/0), offensive Adamyan (15/5), Bruun Larsen (7/0) and forward Kramaric (14/7) are doubtful for the moment.
A match of great importance for both teams
With Fortuna under pressure here, I see Hoffenheim benefiting from this scenario. They are, without any doubt, far more individual quality side and definitely have what it takes to be deadly effective via counters.
