Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Wehen Wiesbaden will be looking to make amends for an embarrassing 6-0 loss to Nurnberg when they take on Darmstadt 98 in the penultimate game of the season. Wehen’s 2. Bundesliga status is in great danger, but a win over Darmstadt could see them overtake Karlsruher in the 16th position in the standings. The Lilywhites, on the other hand, have little to play for in the season finale as they missed out on promotion to the Bundesliga.
Darmstadt 96 are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but seeing that there will be no spectators at Merck-Stadion am Bollenfalltor, we are not tempted to put our money on Dimitrios Grammozis’ men. The visitors want this win more than the hosts, and despite their poor performance in the 6-0 loss to Nurnberg, away 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).
