Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
After eliminating Mainz in the DFB Pokal, Bochum will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they host Darmstadt at their Ruhrstadion. Thomas Reis’ troops have been impressive at home ground of late, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive win on home soil. A man to watch in the home team will be Simon Zoller, who has netted seven goals so far this term, but the opposition defenders should have Austria international Robert Zulj at bay as well.
Darmstadt, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in all competitions, but given Bochum’s home record in 2. Bundesliga, we predict that the visitors are going to return to Hesse empty-handed. The Lilywhites conceded nine goals in total in the previous three away games in the German elite division, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.
