Bayern Munich vs. Fortuna Dusseldorf: Bundesliga – Match Preview

Bayern Munich can take a giant step towards another Bundesliga title on Saturday when they host relegation threatened Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Bayern have won all three since the leagues return, including a midweek victory away at their biggest title rivals Borussia Dortmund.

Joshua Kimmich scored the only goal, a superb chipped effort from the edge of the box, meaning Munich have a seven point lead at the top of the table.

Dusseldorf are in good form themselves, unbeaten in six, including Wednesday nights victory over Schalke.

Despite going a goal down early in the second half, the hosts rallied and scored twice late on, with Kenan Karaman finding the winner.
