Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
All eyes will be on Merck-Stadion am Bollenfalltor when Darmstadt and HSV face each other in the 2. Bundesliga derby on Saturday evening. The Lilywhites have been impressive in 2023, with the team eyeing their fifth consecutive league win, and they are surely capable of grabbing something from the derby. All Muller, Kempe, Manu, Pfeiffer, Bader, Gjasula, and Seydel should miss out with injuries, while Fabian Schnellhardt is a major doubt.
Die Rothosen, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Arminia Bielefeld, but beating Darmstadt on the road is easier said than done. The two promotion-chasing sides seem to be evenly matched at the moment, and we predict that they will share the spoils in Saturday’s encounter. As for the away team, Mario Vuskovic serves a one-game ban, while all Xavier Amaechi, Tom Mickel, Anssi Suhonen, and Elijah Krahn remain in the recovery room.
