Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Arminia Bielefeld and Darmstadt face each other at Schuco Arena in what is expected to one of the most interesting games of Saturday’s program. Die Arminien dropped a three-goal advantage in a 3-3 draw with Eintracht Braunschweig, and, as a result, they failed to escape the relegation zone. The hosts are eager to put an end to their four-match winless run, but they face an uphill task in the round 24 clash. All Marc Rzatkowski, Frederik Jakel, and Andres Andrade are major doubts as the trio has been struggling through illness of late, while Fabian Klos should miss out with injury.
The Lilywhites, on the other hand, aim to recover from a 1-0 loss to Heidenheim. Since Darmstadt will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s clash as well, both teams to score betting option should be considered. All Tobias Kempe, Patric Pfeiffer, and Aaron Seydel are sidelined with injuries, while both Jannik Muller and Braydon Manu are major doubts.
