Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Merck-Stadion am Bollenfalltor will host Friday’s football game between Darmstadt and Karlsruher, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. Darmstadt are only five points clear of the relegation zone, meaning that their 2. Bundesliga status is in danger. The Lilywhites did well to beat Osnabruck in their last home game, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Karlsruher.
Christian Eichner’s troops, on the other hand, aim to move closer to automatic promotion places. Karlsruher are eager to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Nurnberg, and they should take advantage of Darmstadt’s shaky defence. In the first half of the season Darmstadt recorded a thrilling 4-3 win over Karlsruher, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge. It has to be noted that Christian Eichner’s men are eyeing their fifth consecutive away win in the German second tier.
