Union Berlin vs Darmstadt Prediction & Betting tips
On Friday the prelude to the 15th match day of the 2nd Bundesliga will take place. Early on Friday evening the ascent aspirant Union Berlin and Darmstadt 98 meet each other. The Bundesliga relegated from the south of Hesse is certainly one of the disappointments of the season. Instead of having a deciding word in the promotion race, they have to look down now and see that they are not in the relegation battle. Now it goes to the home strong Berliners, who certainly want to leave no points in the fight for the promotion places at home. Will the people of Darmstadt make a turnaround right there? The kick-off at the Alte Försterei is at 17:30.
The Eiserne from Berlin are ranked third in the table after fourteen matchdays and are thus fully in the promotion race. With 25 points, the Köpenicker currently have five points behind Kiel and Düsseldorf, which lead the table. After six league games without defeat, the Berlin were in the last week at 1. FC Heidenheim in a scorching match with 3: 4. If the defensive performance left a lot to be desired, the team has proven at least again and again morality and has come back after arrears with two goals back into the game. Nevertheless, of course, four goals for one of the league’s best defensive lines are just too much to take countless. Now it is time to look ahead and make amends against Darmstadt. After the defeat, the Berliners will endeavor to launch a series similar to the one that ended on the weekend. Earlier, the Berlin had five wins and a draw reached and thus settled in the upper third of the table. With four wins and two draws the Berlin have a very good home record and with the home games against Darmstadt and Dresden and the match in Bochum the team of Jens Keller certainly beatable opponents in front of the chest. The coach will probably have to give up Friday on Fabian Schönheim, Kenny Redondo and Michael Parensen. Best scorer of the Berlin is Sebastian Polter with eight goals scored.
Darmstadt is probably the biggest disappointment in the league. The Bundesliga relegated after 14 matchdays on a twelfth place in the table, which will satisfy neither the team nor coach Frings. With a negative record of four wins, five draws and five defeats, the South Hessians could only collect 17 points so far. Thus, they are only three points in front of the relegation place and have to take great care that they do not fall into the relegation battle. For eight matchdays, the Darmstadt wait for a threesome. The last victory succeeded on the sixth matchday in 4: 3 against Arminia from Bielefeld. Since then, there were only disappointing results. This was followed by four defeats and four draws and the crash on just this twelfth place in the table. The negative highlight was the partially catastrophic performance of the lilies last weekend in the 1: 2 home defeat against Sandhausen. Equally eaten is coach Torsten Frings, who also took the experienced players into the game during the week.
To make matters worse, on Monday, Artur Sobiech was injured in a collision with Markus Steinhöfer. It is more than questionable whether the Pole can run on Friday. Also Felix Platte has completed this week only running training. Darmstadt have eleven different scorers so far, more than any other team in the 2nd Bundesliga. This unpredictability is a small strength of the team.
