THE TEAM NEWS

DARMSTADT 98

  • Darmstadt 98 backed up their impressive showing at home to St. Pauli by earning another solid victory on the road at Erzgebirge Aue in midweek which they achieved despite falling behind early on in the contest.
  • Having gone behind in the eighth minute, Darmstadt responded quickly as they levelled from the spot through Tobias Kempe but it took two efforts from Serdar Dursun in the final 20 minutes to claim the three points.
  • Darmstadt have now lost just one of their last 13 contests in Bundesliga 2 and will be confident of improving that record here as they boast a relatively healthy squad should only be missing long-term absentees Mathias Wittek and Immanuel Hohn.

GREUTHER FURTH

  • Greuther Furth put in a disjointed performance after not having a game at the weekend as they fell to a disappointing 0-2 loss to Osnabruck on Tuesday which now gives them a mountain to climb in their quest to earn promotion.
  • Furth were arguably the better side after falling being early on but they failed to take their chances and were punished when Osnabruck added a second just before the hour mark with the hosts failing to respond.
  • Furth really missed the presence of striker Havard Nielsen in their midweek clash and after suffering a concussion in the final training session before that game, the Norwegian will be sidelined once again.

THE PREDICTION

Darmstadt 98 have proven difficult to beat for a long period in Bundesliga 2 and have been impressive in their last two matches in which they have found the back of the net on seven occasions. They now host Greuther Furth who are without a win in their last three league games and suffered a disappointing loss to Osnabruck in midweek. Furth have won just three games on the road this season while Darmstadt have lost just a single game on home soil and those respective records should ensure that the hosts can avoid defeat at the very least here.
