Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Darmstadt’s goal for the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign remains unchanged. Die Lilien aim to secure the top flight survival, but they are on a very difficult quest. The team sit in 15th place in the Bundesliga standings ahead of the visit of Ingolstadt and they are just one point clear of the relegation zone. Darmstadt suffered back-to-back defeats to the likes of Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen in previous two league fixtures, but Saturday’s football game could be the turning point for the hosts. Ingolstadt chiefs fired Markus Kauczinski and it remains to be seen who is going to take his job. Anyhow, the visitors head into the match with the lack of confidence and seeing that they have collected no more than two points from possible 30 this season, we predict that Darmstadt will return to winning ways on Matchday 11. In their last meeting at Jonathan-Heimes-Stadion am Bollenfalltor die Lillien emerged triumphant.
Highlighted Player (Dominik Stroh-Engel):
Dominik Stroh-Engel was born on 27 November, 1985 and he started his youth career at Bublingshausen. He played for Burgsolms during his youth career as well and in 2003 he joined SC Waldgirmes. Two years later he signed a deal with Eintracht Frankfurt, but he mostly played for the reserve team between 2005 and 2007.
After spending several seasons at Wehen Wiesbaden and Babelsberg, Dominik Stroh-Engel moved to SV Darmstadt 98 at the end of the 2012/2013 season. The German attacker made 34 league appearances for Darmstadt in the 2013/2014 season, scoring no less than 27 goals in the German third division. He helped the club move to Bundesliga, but he was not as successful in the 2014/2015 season, netting just nine goals in 33 appearances for die Lillien.
Anyhow, Darmstadt secured promotion to the German elite division, but it has to be noted that Stroh-Engel failed to find the net in the 2015/2016 Bundesliga campaign. Dominik wears number 9 on his shirt.
