Our best Darmstadt vs Hansa Rostock betting picks and predictions
If you are not sure what bet to place on the Darmstadt vs Hansa Rostock duel, take a look at our top predictions for this match:
Darmstadt to Win
Both Darmstadt and Hansa have started the new season with a couple of wins in the first three rounds, so this can be a very interesting and close duel. Furthermore, both of their duels last season were very close, with one draw and one win for Hansa Rostock.
However, we expect Darmstadt to win this game. They were way ahead of Hansa last season and they failed to get into the playoffs for promotion only because of goal difference. So, they are clearly the better team on paper than Hansa and with them playing at home, we expect them to win here.
Under 2.5 Total Goals
One of the two most recent duels between Darmstadt and Hansa Rostock has gone over 2.5 total goals, the other has gone under, so this game could go either way based on that.
Still, we don’t expect to see many goals here. After all, Darmstadt averaged 2.00 goals per game in the league this season, while Hansa Rostock averaged 1.67 goals per game so far in Bundesliga 2.
Both Teams to Score – No
Although we saw both teams score in both of the two most recent h2h meetings between Darmstadt and Hansa Rostock, we don’t see that happening in their duel on Saturday.
The reason lies in the fact that both teams scored in just one of the first three games played by each of these two teams in the new Bundesliga 2 season, so we can see that trend continuing now.
Darmstadt vs Hansa Rostock preview: A very exciting and close matchup
After nearly missing out on the playoffs for promotion last season due to goal difference, Darmstadt fans will be hoping for another good season that might have a happier ending. On that note, the team started the season well with a couple of wins and one loss. Meanwhile, Clemens Riedel, Mathias Honsak, and Thomas Isherwood are all out with injuries at the moment.
Last season was pretty much an average one for Hansa Rostock since they were 13th in the standings after they finished the season on a run of six games without a win. However, the team started the new season in good form, winning two of their first three games and losing once. When it comes to team news, Frederic Ananou and Maurice Litka are out of the next match through injuries.
