Fortuna Düsseldorf put the pressure on VfB Stuttgart, getting aggressive on all sides of the ball and put three goals on the board and three points in the standings.
Stuttgart controlled the early tempo, but Düsseldorf found the back of the net in the 34th minute thanks to Kenan Karaman who headed in after a pinpoint cross from Dodi Lukebakio..
