Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Sunday’s football game between Darmstadt and Borussia M’gladbach will bring down the curtain on day 4 of the new Bundesliga campaign. The Lilywhites do not seem to be competitive at this level, with the team losing each of their first three games of the process and given their shaky defence, home win should not be considered. Fabian Nurnberger has joined the likes of Christoph Zimmerman, Mathias Honsak, Fraser Hornby, and Alexander Brunst in the treatment room.
Die Fohlen, on the other hand, aim to recover from back-to-back defeats to Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Munich. Since Borussia M’gladbach faced a tough fixture list at the start of the season, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting side. All Jonas Omlin, Luca Netz, Hannes Wolf, and Christoph Kramer are injured for the visiting team, while Stefan Lainer continues to miss out through illness.
