Darmstadt vs Hertha Berlin
Date: Saturday, 13th April 2017
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Merck-Stadion am Bollenfalltor, Darmstadt.
Relegated Darmstadt 98 welcome Europa League contender Hertha Berlin on Saturday. The hosts were beaten 1-0 at Allianz Arena by the champions, while Hertha BSC were stunned by RB Leipzig at Olympiastadion in the capital with 1-4.
After three consecutive victories that gave hope to their fans, Darmstadt 98 were sent to lower tier by the Bavarians. Darmstadt were by far the worst team in the league and they will surely finish this campaign in the last position.
Darmstadt won three out of last five home games. Their overall home record this season reads W6 D3 L7 with 18 goals scored and 23 conceded. Six out of last 7 Darmstadt’s home games had three or more goals scored.
After series of poor away performances, Pan Dardai’s men have dropped to the 6th position and it will be very interesting to see whether they will be able to reach UEFA Europa League.
Hertha are among the worst teams on the road this season, and Darmstadt visit is the perfect opportunity to deviate from the trend. In 16 away games, Berlin only won 2 games and drew 3 games, while they were beaten in 11 Bundesliga meetings on the road. Also, they netted only 13 while allowing 28 goals on the road.
Darmstadt vs Hertha Berlin: Head-to-head
The two sides only met four times in a competitive match so far. Earlier this season Hertha easily beat Darmstadt in Berlin with 2-0. However, in the previous season, Darmstadt grabbed the full prize at Olympiastadion.
Darmstadt vs Hertha Berlin: Prediction
The team from the capital is obligated to bring three points from Darmstadt in order to stay in the race for Europa League. With FC Koln and SV Werder Bremen breathing at their necks, the guests will be under huge pressure.
