- Over 2.5 goals have been scored in all of the four previous meetings between these two clubs.
- Darmstadt have won their last three games against Hannover.
- Darmstadt have only lost once at home this season.
- Over 2.5 goals have been scored in seven of Darmstadt’s 15 home games this season.
Just one point and one position separates these two clubs
Darmstadt will be looking to bounce back this weekend after that 3-0 defeat at Jahn Regensburg, while Hannover will be hoping to keep their moment going and leapfrog their hosts after securing a 2-1 win over fellow promotion hopefuls Heidenheim last time out.
However, Darmstadt are yet to lose against Hannover in any of the pairs’ previous four encounters and secured all 3pts in the pairs reverse fixture at the HDI-Arena courtesy of a 2-1 win. Sunday’s hosts have won the last three meetings between these two clubs and on each occasion, the scoreline has finished 2-1.
Darmstadt rarely lose in their own backyard
Darmstadt might not head into this weekends’ clash as the form favourites, having won two, drawn two and lost two of their last six matches, but at home they have proven a tough nut to crack. The hosts have only lost once in their own backyard and that came against the league leaders Bielefeld back in December, so Hannover have their work cut out for them this weekend.
The visitors have proven hit and miss on their travels, securing seven wins but also suffering seven defeats in 15 away games this season. We’re predicting that over 2.5 goals will be scored in Sunday’s match as 11 of Hannover’s 15 away games have produced at least three goals. Over 2.5 goals have also been scored in three of Darmstadt’s last four matches as well as four of Hannover’s last five league games, so you can see why we’re expecting goals on Sunday.
Every time these two side clash they produce goals
In terms of a final scoreline, we’re predicting a 2-1 win for Darmstadt this weekend as they have a good record against their guests, beating them by this same scoreline in each of the pairs’ last three meetings, and the hosts have proven themselves to be strong at home having only lost to the league leaders at the Merck-Stadion am Böllenfalltor.
