Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Leipzig have been producing scintillating showings in the Bundesliga this season. The newcomers have yet to suffer a loss in the German top flight and they are on a three-game winning run ahead of the trip to Darmstadt. The Red Bulls outplayed Werder Bremen in their last league fixture and a win over Darmstadt could see them overtake Bayern Munich in top position in the Bundesliga standings. Norbert Meier’s charges, on the other hand, defeated Wolfsburg at the weekend, but they are just two points clear of the relegation zone in the standings. When the two teams met in 2. Bundesliga last year Leipzig recorded a 2-1 win over Darmstadt and we predict that both sides will find the net in the Jonathan-Heimes-Stadion am Bollenfalltor game. Speaking of winner, Leipzig are closer to picking up all three points from the match as they have been scoring goals for fun in the German elite division in recent weeks.
