Sandhausen vs Darmstadt
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 30 August 2019
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Hardtwaldstadion (Sandhausen).
Sandhausen have been let off the hook by their fans for the terrible start that they got off to, as the squad are currently on a much more positive two-game winning streak at the moment. The home team came out on top in a five-goal thriller with Nurnberg in their last clash on home soil, while their most recent matchup, which was on the road, saw them slot two goals past Heidenheim to secure all three points.
Darmstadt have just one win in their new campaign so far and have been deprived of the same in their last two games in a row. The squad were hammered by Osnabruck in their last outing, while at home they were held to a frustrating stalemate against Dresden.
With the hosts faring a lot better in comparison with their counterparts, you can count on Sandhausen to be the more optimistic of the two sides to clinch the win.

- Three out of their last five clashes have finished in a tie.
Sandhausen vs Darmstadt Prediction
The hosts have certainly turned things around from the dismal start that they got off to, and have been putting on a solid winning performance in their last two games in a running. It also needs saying that Sandhausen have lost just twice in their previous seven Bundesliga games on home soil, and could well cash in on home advantage to help see them through the ninety minutes.
The visitors were at the receiving end of four unanswered goals in their most recent outing, and are so far winless in their trips on the road. Additionally, Darmstadt have taken down Sandhausen just once in their previous visits here.
Considering that the guests have been struggling in their recent clashes away from their home turf, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Sandhausen at the end of the ninety minutes.
Neither side have kept a clean sheet against each other in their last three clashes here. Taking into account that both the teams have also found the back of the net in two of their previous three matchups as well, expect goals down each end in this one.
