Darmstadt vs Wolfsburg
Date: Saturday, 22nd October 2016,
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Merck-Stadion am Bollenfalltor, Darmstadt.
Darmstadt are finding it difficult to replicate their strong performances in last season as they as managed just 1 win from their 7 matches so far. They fell to a 2-1 loss to Mainz away from home last week to register the 4th defeat of the season. Interestingly all the defeats have come away from home and they still remain unbeaten at home with the lone win and 2 draws.
Wolfsburg have plenty of injury problems coming into Saturday’s league clash against Darmstadt. Just like their opponent, Wolfsburg have also won once this season, which came on matchday one of the campaign. Their last six matches have seen 3 draws and 3 losses and they are in the middle of a goal-scoring crisis. They are arguably the worst attack in the league after having netted just 4 goals so far this season.
Darmstadt vs Wolfsburg: Head-to-Head Stats
Wolfsburg are unbeaten in the three competitive meetings with Darmstadt so far. In the two meetings of previous Bundesliga season, Wolfsburg earned a narrow 1-0 win in the away trip to Darmstadt, while settled for a 1-1 draw in the reverse leg back home.
The only previous competitive meeting between the two sides was in the 2014/15 DFB Pokal, which was stretched to extra time and decided by a single goal in favour of Wolfsburg.
Darmstadt vs Wolfsburg: Prediction
Wolfsburg are showing no signs of recovery and looks like a side without any kind of confidence or motivation. And the number of injuries haven’t helped them on the way. While Darmstadt are a more than capable side at home and they will be in good spirit on the back of an unbeaten home record this season. It will be safe to back the home side on a double chance, especially when the odds are offer at around 2.05.
However, goals will be at premium as these two sides have managed just 9 goals combined so far this season.
