Darmstadt vs Hamburger SV Prediction
Darmstadt salvaged no more than a point for the second time on the trot after Stuttgart mustered a comeback to post a 1-1 scorecard last week at home. The hosts are now without a taste of success in their last three games and have just three wins to boast of from their previous ten in all competitions.
As of now, the home side are sitting twelfth on the ladder, ten points shy of their counterparts for the weekend.
On the other hand, Hamburger SV have been hit by a sharp decline in form. Their last clash on the road saw them play out a 1-1 draw alongside Sandhausen. While at home, Heidenheim edged past them with a narrow 1-0 scoreline.
Be that as it may, it is certainly worth mentioning that the guests have stumbled just twice in their previous eleven clashes in the second division. They have not been easy to take down in their outings either, and have admitted defeat just two times so far.
Meanwhile, Darmstadt have been deprived of a win in their past three games at home. To make matters worse, they have also been at the losing end in each of their previous two meetings with this foe here. As such, Hamburger SV are sizing up to be the favorites to secure the bragging rights this weekend.
However, the visitors have shared the spoils five times already on the road this term. Considering that five of the last eight clashes for Darmstadt here have also ended as a tie, the safest punt in this one is undoubtedly a Draw no bet.
Furthermore, Hamburger SV have been guilty of being leaky at the back. Miserably, they have conceded a goal or more in each of their last eight outings.
Given that two of their previous three h2h fixtures here have also witnessed both teams find the back of the net together, count on Hamburger SV to win but to do so without a clean sheet intact.
