Hamburg are currently safe from any immediate threat of relegation with 34 points sitting comfortably at 10th in the table. Darmstadt are 13th in the league with 29 points, 2 points clear-off 16 placed Augsburg and a loss on Saturday could take them back to the danger zone.

Form Guide

Hamburg won in 2 and lost 3 of their last 5 league matches, which could be further extended to 3 wins in their last 14 matches. Their home form is very unpredictable as they have won just 4 of their 14 matches so far.

Darmstadt are without a win in their last 8 Bundesliga matches, with 5 draws and 3 defeats. They have drawn in all of their last 4 matches. Their away form is without a win in the last 4, with the latest 3 being draws.

Hamburg: Team News

Swiss striker Josip Drmic is ruled out for the rest of the season due to a knee injury, while experienced striker Ivica Olic is sidelined until the end of April.

Hamburg: Expected Starting Line-up (4-2-3-1)

Adler – Diekmeier, Cleber Reis, Spahić, Sakai – Ekdal, Holtby – Nicolai Müller, Iličević, Hunt – Schipplock.

Darmstadt: Team News

Center Forward Dominik Stroh-Engel is sidelined for Darmstdat following a lumbar vertebra fracture and expected to miss the rest of the season. Left-back Junior Diaz is pushing for a start after recovering from his injury, but he is likely to start from the bench.

Darmstadt: Expected Starting Line-up (4-4-1-1)

Mathenia – Caldirola, Rajković, Sulu, Jungwirth – Rausch, Gondorf, Niemeyer, Heller – Vrančić – Wagner

Hamburg vs Darmstadt: Head-to-Head Stats

The teams have only met once in a competitive match and that was in the first leg of this season’s Bundesliga fixture which ended 1-1 at Merck-Stadion am Böllenfalltor.

Hamburg vs Darmstadt: Prediction

Darmstadt are struggling off lately and are without a win in their last 8 matches. At the same time, they have managed to avoid defeat in their last 4 matches. Hamburg on the other hand are a very unpredictable side both home and away. I can hardly see either of these teams keeping a clean sheet on Saturday night and the goals are likely to fall at each end.

Hamburg could win this one as they have started getting results at their home ground and Darmstadt’s unbeaten run could end on Saturday.

Best Bet: Hamburg to win @ 2.07
