Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Arminia Bielefeld will be looking to put icing on the cake on a very successful season when they welcome Darmstadt at their SchucoArena on Matchday 32. Since a win over Darmstadt should see Arminia return to Bundesliga, we are positive that the league leaders are going to leave their hearts on the field.
The Lilywhites, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-2 win over Hannover, but seeing that they have slim chances of securing a top-three finish, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Uwe Neuhaus’ men. Darmstadt are not regarded as good travellers, and even though there will be no spectators at Schuco Arena, the visitors are unlikely to grab something from the match. In the first half of the season Arminia Bielefeld outplayed Darmstadt 98 at Merck-Stadion am Bollefalltor, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
Highlighted Team (Darmstadt):
SV Darmstadt 98 are a professional football club that compete in the German Bundesliga. Darmstadt were founded in 1898 and the club’s original name was FC Olympia Darmstadt. In 1905 the club changed its’ name to Sportvererien Darmstadt 98. Die Lilien (The Lilies) play their home games at Merck-Stadion am Bollenfalltor and the capacity of the ground is 17,000.
After spending 33 years in lower leagues, Darmstadt competed in the German Bundesliga in the 2015/2016 campaign, with the team finishing the season in 14th place in the standings, just two points clear of the relegation zone. Die Lilien wear blue shirts and white shorts and their main rivals are Kickers Offenbach.
The likes of Bruno Labbadia, Gino Lettieri, Zivojin Juskic, Kosta Runjaic, Lothar Buchmann are some of the most famous coaches that used to be in charge of the team in the past. It has to be noted that Darmstadt have won the Hesse Cup seven times (1966, 1999, 2001, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2013).
