Bochum vs Darmstadt
German 2. Bundesliga
Date: Monday, 12 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Vonovia Ruhrstadion (Bochum).
Back-to-back wins over Greuther Furth and Magdeburg climbed Darmstadt p to 12th position in the 2. Bundesliga ladder. They moved lock on points with 10th-placed Bochum coming into the last game of the Matchday No 13 on Monday evening at Vonovia Ruhrstadion.
Dirk Schuster’s men took advantage of the easier fixture at home against Magdeburg last weekend to ease their way to a 3-1 victory. Serdar Dusun and Aytac Sulu were on the scoreline on the occasion. We have to mention the Lilies showed a decent fighting spirit to react well after left-back Fabian Holland got sent off 20 minutes from time. Magdeburg pulled one back just one minute later to make it 2-1, but center-back Sulu reacted well after the corner kick to secure the second consecutive win for his team.
Bochum vs Darmstadt: Head-to-head
Darmstadt were more successful over the course of history, but it’s Bochum who came on top in last two head to head encounters.
Die Unabsteigbaren earned the domestic double over the Lilies via two separate 2-1 wins in the previous term of 2. Bundesliga.
Both teams scored in four of last five head to head games.
Bochum vs Darmstadt: Prediction
We could easily witness the continuation of a BTTS trend here given Bochum’s recent results in the league. The hosts drew 3-3 to Jahn Regensburg just five days before sharing spoils in another high-scoring draw (2-2) to Greuther Furth in the previous round.
Robin Dutt’s men were just millimetres away from snatching the spoils at Sportpark Ronhof Thomas Sommer, but were unlucky to concede a 91st-minute leveller through Daniel Keita-Ruel. Robert Tesche and Lukas Hinterseer were previously on target for Die Unabsteigbaren. The Astrian striker (Hinterseer) has been in good touch lately as he notched three goals in last two matches for Bochum. He is thus well worth backing to score anytime at the 2.60 odds.
Bochum vs Darmstadt: Bet Tips
BTTS @ 1.72 (8/11)
Lukas Hinterseer to score anytime @ 2.60 (8/5).
