Our football match prediction:
Despite recording back-to-back wins over the likes of Schalke and Hamburger in previous two league fixtures, Darmstadt remained in the last position in the Bundesliga standings. The Lilies will almost certainly drop to the 2. Bundesliga at the end of the season and they have little to play for in Saturday’s football game against Freiburg. Christian Streich’s men sit in the Europa League berth ahead of Matchday 31 and they will be looking to build on a 2-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen when they face Darmstadt at Jonathan-Heimes-Stadion am Bollenfalltor. Freiburg are not regarded as good travelers, but a win over the Lilies would see them move one step closer to booking their place in European competitions and we predict that the visitors will pick up all three points from Saturday’s match. Nils Petersen scored his ninth goal of the season at the weekend, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
