Darmstadt 98 vs Nurnberg
Date: 16th October 2017
Kick off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Jonathan-Heimes-Stadion am Bollenfalltor.
Goals should be guaranteed on Monday evening when Darmstadt 98 and Nurnberg are to drop the curtain on the 10th round of 2. Bundesliga at Jonathan-Heimes-Stadion.
Both sides have been pretty efficient in the final third at the start of the season and we can hardly imagine a low-scoring contest on Monday.
Die Lilien notched nine goals in last four games but they’ve only picked up a single victory due to horrendous performances at the back.
Torsten Frings’ men allowed three goals in each of their last two outings against Dynamo Dresden and Ingolstadt.
Fixing the defensive holes was Frings’ main task during the international break, but keeping things quiet at the back will be quite a challenge against the second best attack in the competition.
Der Club bagged 12 goals during the three-win streak to extend their tally to 20 in opening nine fixtures.
Nurnberg will, however, much like their opponents, be looking to bounce back as they dropped the ball in the previous round’s derby with Arminia Bielefeld (1-2 at their Max-Morlock-Stadion).
Darmstadt 98 vs Nurnberg: Head to head
The visitors lead the tie by a single win ahead of their eighth meeting with Darmstadt 98, but they failed to pick up a single competitive victory in last four encounters with Die Lilien.
Darmstadt 98 vs Nurnberg: Prediction
As we underlined in the introduction, everything points out to a goal fest here and we would be very surprised to see any of the two sides keeping their net untouched on Monday.
The value has to be with the visiting striker Mikael Ishak to find the back of the net at 7/4 odds following his impressive form that saw him notching six goals in opening nine outings.
