Darmstadt could not hold on in the elite for more than two years as they will move to the second tier of the German football at the end of the season.

The safe zone is 14 points away and the situation is pretty clear for them with eight games left to play.

Thorsten Frings and his men will, however, look for their chance to enjoy the occasion of playing the top teams in the country and collect as many points as possible till the end of the campaign.

Darmstadt 98

You just never know when Darmstadt could make an upset. They did two weeks before the international break when they saw off Mainz 05 2-1 on the home court.

The team generally has a solid home record since they also managed to beat the like of Borussia Dortmund 2-1 back in mid-February.

Bayer Leverkusen

Bayer Leverkusen are living the worst days in the last decade. The team is only three points above the danger area and the posit6ions which lead to the relegation playoffs.

The owners hired Tayfun Korkut as the new head coach, but the Turkish manager is off to a horrendous start as he is yet to celebrate his first win after four matches.

Darmstadt 98 vs Bayer Leverkusen: Head to head

Bayer Leverkusen have been the dominant side in head to head encounters as they took four wins out of five clashes with Darmstadt.

This includes the 3-2 victory from November last year at BayArena when Hakan Calhanoglu, Julian Brandt and Charles Aranguiz scored goals for the team led then by Roger Schmidt.

Darmstadt 98 vs Bayer Leverkusen: Prediction

Bayer are 7/10 to pick up the victory which is a fair price and definitely the best bet worth taking. Because, Korkut’s men are desperate to get back on the winning ways and Darmstadt is a perfect opponent for something like that.

The value is also with Javier Hernandez to score anytime against one of the weakest defensive sides in the competition.
