Arminia Bielefeld vs Darmstadt
German 2. Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 3 March 2019
Kick-Off at 12:30 UK / 13:30 CET
Venue: SchucoArena (Bielefeld).
Arminia got off to a dream kick off to the year with a thread of three consecutive wins in 2. Bundesliga. They brought it to an abrupt end with a shocking home loss to relegation strugglers Magdeburg two weeks ago at home, but managed to regain confidence by holding promotional contenders Union Berlin to a 1-1 draw on the road last weekend.
Uwe Neuhaus’ men have a nice opportunity to back up the mentioned draw at Union Berlin on Sunday afternoon when they play host to bottom-half rivals Darmstadt at SchucoArena. Neuhaus has an intriguing attacking line-up on disposal with the likes of Fabian Klos and Abdreas Voglsammer. Arminia are flying high attacking-wise after the winter break. They bagged at least a goal in all five matches in 2019.
Arminia Bielefeld vs Darmstadt Head-to-head
Bielefeld can rely on the head tradition here as well.
They come into this off the back of two consecutive wins in matches against Darmstadt.
Arminia won three, drew two and lost just one of six home outings with the Lilies.
Both teams scored in four of last five head to head fixtures.
Arminia Bielefeld vs Darmstadt Prediction
Darmstadt picked up an important 2-0 victory over fellow strugglers Dynamo Dresden eight days ago. The team took only one point in three league outings beforehand. The mentioned win also saw the Lilies keep their inaugural clean sheet in 12 league matches.
The visitors own the season weakest defensive record in the entire league (only the rock-bottomed MSV Duisburg have conceded more goals so far in the season). Darmstadt were particularly struggling on the road where they won 1, drew 3 and lost as many as 7 of 11 matches in 2. Bundesliga.
Given they will be up against awakened attacking line of Arminia’s, we can hardly see any other outcome but the home win here. Bielefeld to net two or more goals is a standout bet at 2.10 odds.
