Darmstadt vs Bayern Munich
Date: Sunday, 18th December, 2016
Kick-off: 14:30 UK
Venue: Jonathan-Heimes-Stadion im Bollenfalltor, Darmstadt.
Carlo Ancelotti can breathe much easier after the last week’s defeat RB Leipzig suffered at Ingolstadt. The reigning champions thus claimed the top of the table in Bundesliga once again and they have a nice opportunity to stay there after the 15th round match since they will be travelling to Darmstadt to face the weakest team in the competition at the moment.
The atmosphere in Bayern’s dressing room is phenomenal after a demolishing 5-0 win over Wolfsburg at Allianz Arena on Saturday. Robert Lewandowski packed a brace to reach the double digits (he is now at 11 goals scored in Bundesliga), while Arjen Robben, Thomas Muller (finally) and Douglas Costa also got their names on the scoresheet.
Darmstadt suffered the seventh consecutive defeat which left them alone at the rock bottom of the table after Ingolstadt’s win in the last round. The horrendous run forced the team owners to say goodbye to Norbert Meier as Ramon Berndroth has been appointed as a caretaker manager earlier in the month. The German manager was unsuccessful in his debut losing to Freiburg with 1-0 away from home.
Interestingly, Darmstadt have failed to find the net in each of the last three home games in Bundesliga which gives a nice value to 1/2 odds on Bayern Munich to keep the clean sheet on Sunday afternoon.
