Dusseldorf take on the visitors Eintracht Braunschweig at "Esprit Arena" in the starting gameweek of the Germany's 2. Bundesliga. The match will be played in on Monday, July 31st.
Dusseldorf were fighting for saving their place in the 2. Bundesliga during the whole last season and only three clashes at the end of the season in which the team earned seven points saved the side from relegation. The club occupied the 11th place in last season's standings with 42 points gained and 37-39 goal difference. This summer Friedhelm Funkel's side has been enforced by several players becoming stronger than it was last season. During the summer pause Dusseldorf conducted seven friendly battles resulting in five wins and two defeats.

In previous season Eintracht Braunschweig stopped in one step to promotion to the Bundesliga. Having settled on the third place in the 2. Bundesliga table with 66 points taken and 50-36 goal difference, the side lost to the wealthy Wolfsburg 0:1, 0:1 in the Relegation Play Offs. During the summer Eintracht Braunschweig's squad didn't change meaning the team is quite able to battle for promoting to the Bundesliga this season. In four summer games Eintracht Braunschweig gained two victories and two draws.
In regards to Dusseldorf and Eintracht Braunschweig head-to-heads statistics in the 21st century, Dusseldorf have huge advantage, however, last season both clashes were won by Eintracht Braunschweig with the same 2:1 scoreline. I believe that at least two goals will be scored in the upcoming fight.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.0 scored goals.
