The Lions got off to a flier when Benjamin Lauth slotted them in front in the ninth minute, converting Bobby Wood's knock-on in classic poacher's fashion. From there on in, it was Düsseldorf pressure pretty much all the way, with Mathis Bolly in particularly lively form down the right, but himself unable to capitalise on a couple of decent openings.
Tomasov at the double
Fortuna's pressure eventually paid off on 37 minutes when Yannick Stark hauled Levan Kenia back inside the box, the referee pointed to the spot and Charlison Benschop did the rest. A minute later, an effort from Bolly took a deflection before coming off the bar as the hosts continued to press, but 1-1 it remained through to the break.
It was a similar pattern after restart, but 1860 held firm until carving out a rare opportunity themselves with twelve minutes to go, sub Marin Tomasov chasing down a through-ball and drilling an inch-perfect finish just inside the post. Tomasov finished things off with his own second in added time, to cap a performance of clinical efficiency by the Lions.
