Getting closer to the top teams is at stake when these two mid-table clubs battle it out. Both will be aiming to improve their league table standing, Erzgebirge Aue in 9th and Darmstadt 98 in 10th place.

Darmstadt 98 form and stats

As the visiting team in 2. Bundesliga matches, Darmstadt 98, who have the most scored goals (10) away in 2. Bundesliga, have produced an overall stat of 2-1-1 so far.

Darmstadt failed to get anything from their last game, a 2. Bundesliga home match vs Paderborn (placed 5th) that ended with defeat 0-4. Preceding that game was the away victory against Karlsruher SC with the score of 4-3.

As you can see from the result above, the defeat against Paderborn was particularly ugly (0-4). The humiliation is still top of mind. It's a bit worrying for Darmstadt that their goalkeeper Marcel Schuhen made eight saves in the Paderborn game last time out, but still couldn''t prevent the loss.

Darmstadt 98 create on average more than 2,5 goals per away game (in the league) all by themselves, having scored 10 goals in 4 travels. The Darmstadt manager M. Anfang has some worries about the defense as 9 goals have been conceded in these travels.

Head 2 Head

Head-2-head stats last eight meetings: one - one - six (Erzgebirge wins - draws - Darmstadt 98 wins). As for goals, two matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), six had two or less.
