Darmstadt vs Duisburg
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 24 August 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Merck-Stadion am Bollenfalltor (Darmstadt).
Darmstadt and Duisburg are going to face each other in the third round of the German 2. Bundesliga on Friday evening.
The hosts celebrated a victory over Paderborn in the opening round, while in the following match they suffered a defeat against St. Pauli.
Darmstadt managed to survive in the previous season thanks to their excellent finish which propelled them to the 10th position.
Just five rounds before the end of the season they were sitting in the relegation zone, but Slobodan Medojevic and the lads managed to pick up 11 points in that period and tie three victories in the closing rounds.
They haven’t been too successful at home, but at the end of the campaign they managed to improve their record.
Duisburg challenged one of the promotion places, but they remained eight points behind the third spot.
They have been pretty productive, but their defence should have been a bit tighter.
The visitors have been performing very well at away grounds as they managed to celebrate seven victories when playing away from home.
However, Ilia Grouev’s side cannot be proud of their start of the current season as they failed to two defeats being unable to score a goal.
They need to improve their work in front of the oppositions’ goal if they want to get away from an early trouble.
Darmstadt vs Duisburg: Head-to-head
These two sides faced each other four times and Darmstadt have been more successful as they managed to celebrate three wins against their rivals.
The crowd still haven’t seen a draw in their clashes, and just once the match didn’t go over 2.5 margin.
Darmstadt vs Duisburg: Prediction
This one is going to be a very tight clash as both sides will be looking for a positive result.
Although they failed to win a single point in the first two rounds, Duisburg might provide a little surprise here and get back home with three points in their pockets.
Both sides have been involved in low scoring matches in the first two rounds, and although they have been producing a fair number of goals in their encounters, this one should remain under 2.5 margin.
Darmstadt vs Duisburg: Bet Tips
Away win @ 3.50 (5/2)
Under 2.5 goals @ 1.75 (3/4).
