On Saturday, November 11th, SV Darmstadt 98 takes on Mainz 05 in an upcoming Bundesliga encounter as they look to bounce back from a losing run of 3 games.
After dropping 3 straight, most notably 1-2 versus fellow relegation opponents Vfl Bochum, SV Darmstadt 98 remains in danger. To begin climbing out of the drop zone, they desperately need to win. Winning in this game would help them a lot ahead of the international break because they are just a single point over Mainz in 15th place. But the defending of SV Darmstadt 98 is atrocious. After 10 rounds, they have the 3rd-worst record for goals allowed in Bundesliga history. In ten games, they gave up an astounding 32 goals, or more than 3 per contest on average. What’s noteworthy is that it’s not certain if Torsten Lieberknecht, the coach of SV Darmstadt 98, will start this match on the bench. He missed the previous week’s team practice sessions because his wife remains at the hospital following a stroke. We’ll see, but he might require a few more days off from the squad in order to get some more time with her.
Last week put a stop to Mainz’s terrible streak of 14 matches without a victory. After shockingly defeating RB Leipzig 2-0, they are currently 2nd from the bottom in the Bundesliga standings. After 17 matches, that victory marked Mainz’s initial clean sheet since then. Maybe that victory resulted from the resignation of coach Bo Svensson, and the appointment of Jan Siewert as interim coach. Anyway, Mainz won their initial match of the year last week thanks to some strong defensive performance. Since the previous campaign, Mainz has had terrible away results. They have now played 9 straight games on the road without a victory. Die Nullfunfer will travel to Darmstadt, who have just been promoted, with the knowledge that an additional consecutive victory will ensure they are not in the automatic relegation spots come the next international break.
