FORTUNA FAVOURS THE BRAVE IN DÜSSELDORF

Düsseldorf - Back in the big time for the first time since 1997, Fortuna Düsseldorf hit the ground running with a Matchday 1 win away at FC Augsburg. Their defensive organisation had tongues wagging, and they showed it was no one-off as they kept a further four clean sheets before shipping their first Bundesliga goals of the campaign at home to FC Schalke 04. Progress may have slowed slightly since, but Norbert Meier's men are making a real fist of avoiding an immediate return to the second tier.
