Darmstadt, having returned to the Bundesliga after a six-year sabbatical, has struggled since being promoted from Bundesliga II. Torsten Lieberknecht’s team is in danger of relegation after collecting just one point from five games played so far.
Darmstadt has scored six goals in their last four matches, although they have only managed one draw (a dramatic 3:3 draw with Monchengladbach). Unfortunately for Sunday’s hosts, defensive problems have been a major factor in their previous losses (4:1 to Union Berlin, 5:1 to Leverkusen, and 3:2 to Stuttgart).
After a 2-2 start to the season, the visiting Werder Bremen squad travels to the Merck-Stadion am Böllenfalltor. The River Islanders’ three-game losing run on the road to start the season is their longest road skid since the end of the 2016–17 campaign.
When Ole Werner’s team is playing, especially on the road, goals are almost certain. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in seven of Bremen’s past nine away Bundesliga games.
Given that Darmstadt has experienced both of these results in each of their previous four league matches, it is reasonable to anticipate a comparable outcome on Sunday. Considering the aforementioned factors, it is plausible to anticipate both teams to score, along with the likelihood of there being more than 2.5 goals in a match where Darmstadt may perhaps secure their inaugural victory of the season.
Darmstadt will be without the services of Christoph Zimmermann and Fraser Hornby for their next Bundesliga match against Werder Bremen on Sunday. Matej Maglica has become eligible for selection once again following his suspension.
Ole Werner possesses the capability to play with Naby Keita, subsequent to the recovery of the aforementioned Liverpool midfielder’s physical condition. However, it is anticipated that Felix Agu and captain Marco Friedl will be unable to participate.
