Pal Dardai’s men boats one of league’s best defensive records with just 8 goals shipped in 8 outings so far in the top flight. They have high ambitions in the cup competition as well given Dardai used his strongest squad possible in the first round fixture against Eintracht Braunschweig in mid-August. Vedad Ibisevic was the one who made the difference for the Old Lady back then by netting the match-winner seven minutes from time at Eintracht-Stadion.

Darmstadt vs Hertha Berlin: Head-to-head

Hertha dominated this match-up over its short history.

The Old Lady won five, drew one and lost one of seven meetings with Darmstadt.

The two teams last played each other in the 2016/17 Bundesliga campaign when Hertha earned two separate 2-0 wins.

Darmstadt vs Hertha Berlin: Prediction

The hosts now feature the second division football. The season began in a dreadful manner for then, but the head coach Dirk Schuster seems to have found the winning formula as improvements can be noticed.

Darmstadt took four points from last two league matches against Jahn Regensburg (1-1 draw) and Greuther Furth (2-0 win). However, the team was way too easy to break down throughout the season. They shipped eight goals in three games before the mentioned positive thread.

Given Hertha’s dominance in H2H matches and the fact they do enjoy the higher-division status and a fine form overall there, we have to go with the away win at 1.65. The alternative bet would be Hertha to keep things tight at the back.

Darmstadt vs Hertha Berlin: Bet Tips

  • Hertha to win @ 1.65 (13/20)
  • Hertha to keep a clean sheet @ 2.37 (11/8).
