Nevertheless, they’ve been struggling badly for goals ever since the fourth victory. Christian Titz saw his troops fail to find the net in any of last three league games, a thread which began with an embarrassing 0-5 loss to Jahn Regensburg at Volksparkstadion.

Back-to-back goalless draws to Greuther Furth and St. Pauli followed. The Red Shorts will, however, get a nice opportunity to return on the winning ways and get their 2. Bundesliga campaign and running again with a victory over the struggling Darmstadt side on Friday evening away at Merck-Stadion am Bollenfalltor.

Darmstadt vs Hamburger SV: Head-to-head

The two teams played each other eight times in the elite class of the German football.

This will be their maiden H2H clash in 2. Bundesliga, following HSV’s historical elimination from the top flight last season.

Hamburger SV were more successful historically, winning 4, drawing 2 and losing 2 of 8 meetings with the Lilies.

Interestingly, seven of eight H2H games saw goals at both ends.

Darmstadt vs Hamburger SV: Prediction

The Lilies also started the new league campaign in a promising fashion, but their form saw a massive drop of late. Dirk Schuster’s job is even rumoured to be on the line after Darmstadt lost three in a row, conceding as many as 10 goals in the process.

This is why we see the tie against the Lilies as a perfect chance for Hamburg to regain the much-needed attacking confidence with a strong display in the final third. The quality is no doubts on their side and we do find the value in backing the away win at the odds of 2.45 here.

You can also back Hamburger SV to net two or more goals at the 2.25 odds.

Darmstadt vs Hamburger SV: Bet Tips

  • Hamburger SV to win @ 2.45 (29/20)
  • Hamburger SV Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 2.25 (5/4).
