Numbers for the game: Interesting facts about # SVSF95

On Sunday, Fortuna Düsseldorf will be looking for points for the first time this season. With the 63-year-old Gerhard Kleppinger, opponent Sandhausen has the oldest coach in the league on the sideline, while Christian Preusser will for the first time follow a second division game as head coach on the sideline. F95 fans will find further facts and figures on the opening game below.

At 2: 2 5 years ago …
… the Fortuna opened its season once in Sandhausen. After just twelve minutes, Friedhelm Funkel’s team was 2-0 behind. A left-footed shot by Adam Bodzek brought the Flingerans back into play before the break. Fortuna got stronger in the second round, Sandhausen limited himself to countering and almost got rewarded for it. Despite many great chances, F95 failed again and again at SVS keeper Knaller. In the 89th minute of the game, the SVS gave the victory, which they believed to be certain, because central defender Gordon curiously chipped the ball into his own net. So Düsseldorf was ultimately still happy about a well-deserved away point. Now it’s back to Sandhausen for the start.

… Fortuna has been able to win so far. Only in 2015/16 did the F95-Elf lose 1-0. In the following season, the two teams ended in a draw and last season, despite their oppressive superiority, Düsseldorf only managed one point. Nevertheless, the balance of the Flingerans in Sandhausen is positive and scoring goals seems to be easy there. Even if the last guest appearance ended goalless, Fortuna was successful nine times in six appearances.

With a capacity of 15,414 …
… the BWT stadium at Hardtwald holds more spectators than people live in Sandhausen. Last summer, 15,276 residents were registered in the Baden-Württemberg community and thus around 140 fewer people than can be accommodated in the Hardtwaldstadion. Originally the Sandhäuser Stadium had a capacity of 10,231 seats, but was expanded to 12,000 seats for the 2012/13 season when it was promoted to the 2nd Bundesliga. In order to continue to meet the requirements of the DFL, the stadium was enlarged again a year later.
