Darmstadt vs Sandhausen
German 2. Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 16 February 2020
Kick-Off at 12:30 UK
Venue: Merck Stadion am Bollenfalltor, Darmstadt
Series of four consecutive draws has finally ended in a positive way for Darmstadt. They have achieved big victory during the last weekend against Dynamo in Dresden 3-2 FT, despite being behind in the early stages of the match. Goal of Serdar Dursun has sealed the deal eventually.
Still, they are very far from the playoffs zone. Upcoming encounter against Sandhausen is going to be a battle of two squads from the middle. There is no big favourite to claim points – home win is priced at 2.51, while chances for visitors to snatch their 3rd win away from home are at 2.70.

Darmstadt vs Sandhausen: Prediction
You can’t really have realistic top 3 hopes in German 2. Bundesliga if you win only two out of ten encounters at home like Darmstadt. They have lost only one of those though, including seven draws. The average number of goals seen in those duels is exactly 2.90 per match.
Sandhausen have very similar pattern as well. They are masters of draws as well – 9 in 21 games. The last two weeks have been hard though, featuring losses to Nurnberg and Heidenheim without scoring one single goal.
In all honesty, it sounds wrong to consider anything else but a draw here. Both teams have insanely high percentage of games that ended without a winner, so take 3.20 odds as a small nice present. Stake should not be high obviously.
As for the alternative bet, here is another longshot. 1-1 was the result in three out of last four meetings.
