Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
After sharing the spoils with Holstein Kiel at the weekend, Darmstadt will be aiming to return to winning ways when they take on Nurnberg on Matchday 12. The Lilywhites have been in a fine form of late, but Friday’s game will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. The likes of Ensar Arslan, Tim Skarke, and Marvin Mehlem remain in the recovery room, while Klaus Gjasula is a major doubt after he was tested positive for coronavirus.
The Bavarians, on the other hand, aim to build on a 4-0 win over Heidenheim. Nurnberg are undefeated in the 2021/2022 season, and they are surely capable of matching Darmstadt at Merck-Stadion am Bollenfalltor. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. All Felix Lohkemper, Florian Hubner, Paul-Philip Besong, and Pascal Kopke are out of contention with injuries for the away side.
