Darmstadt vs Osnabruck Prediction
After getting promoted to the upper-tier league, Osnabruck has used their opportunity pretty well in the contest to avoid going back to the third division league. Their form has taken a dip in form recently as their last two matches ended in a loss.
Their previous encounter marked the second consecutive loss in their form. They were at home in the match with Sandhausen and it ended with a 1-3 scoreline favoring the visitor. Despite the double loss, Daniel Thioune has other concerns like away handicap in the match and league experience.
Darmstadt has been on a four-game draw streak in the league fixtures. Their previous encounter with Keil on the road ended in a 1-1 draw with Darmstadt coming from the back in the game. Despite the results, Dimitrios Grammozis’s boys have scored goals in all but one of the last five fixtures.
Other factors to be considered will be the home ground advantage for Darmstadt in the game. They have lost only two of their ten league home matches so far. With 1.4 goals per match average at home, the Lillies are sure to trouble the opposition defense.
Osnabruck has lost four of their ten away games so far. But the visitor has lost their previous trip on the road in the campaign against Heidenheim. Also, they have marked only two wins in their past nine away fixtures.
As such, Darmstadt will probably create more opportunities in the game. Hence, the punters can go with Darmstadt to be the favorite in the clash. However, Osnabruck cannot be considered lightly as they are on an away handicap. So, it is safer to go with a double chance in the encounter.
With both teams showing a decent scoring streak in the league, we can expect both teams to score at least a goal each in ninety minutes of the clash.
