Dusseldorf got 10-2-0 in last 12 home matches, keeping 5 clean sheets. One of their draws is against Steaua in friendly. They are playing more than comfortable against Karlsruher at home with 3 straight wins.
Karlsruher are playing quite poor lately, with 3 straight loses, showing weak defensive performance, conceding 9 goals.
27.08.2011 D2 Karlsruher SC 0-4 FSV Frankfurt
21.08.2011 D2 Energie Cottbus 2-0 Karlsruher SC
12.08.2011 D2 Karlsruher SC 1-3 Eintracht Braunschweig
Karlsruher will miss a couple of regulars due to injury problems and I cant see them taking something from this match. They are poor travelers too with 2-2-8 in last 12 visits, keeping clean sheet only once.
I expect strong motivated home side to take the full pack of points
