One of the positive in their play is the positive attitude to take the game to the opposition. This is reflected in the 20 goals they scored during the period.

Fortuna Dusseldorf are coming on the back of a four match winning streak. They are unbeaten at home this season with 4 wins and a draw. They scored 2 or more goals in four of those.

Darmstadt made an excellent start to the season when they picked 3 wins and a draw from the first four games. But, they are down to bare bones with 1 win coming from the next six.

It is poor defending that caused the downfall. We saw them losing 3-4 at home to Nurnberg, which is a evidence of their poor shape. The team let in 15 goals in the last five, minimum 2 in each and 3 or more in four.

Dusseldorf vs Darmstadt: Head-to-head

Dusseldorf won both the league meetings in Darmstadt’s promotion winning campaign back in 2014/15 – 2-0 home, 4-1 away.

Dusseldorf vs Darmstadt: Prediction

This match must go down as an easy win for the Flingeraner. They are by far the most consistent team in the league and are coming on the back of a 5 match unbeaten run at home. Notable point is the 11 goals they scored at the Esprit Arena in the process.

On the other hand, Darmstadt are a sinking ship after a positive start to the campaign. Poor defending is the core of the problem, which will directly play this game in the hands of the home side.

Dusseldorf vs Darmstadt: Bet Tips

  • Fortuna to win for 2.00 odds has to be a banker.
  • A decent alternate is Over 2.5 goals for 1.88 goals.
  • I also find good value in backing Fortuna to score a least of two goals here at 1.97 odds.
