Soccer Prediction for Today Sandhausen vs. Darmstadt

Sandhausen won only one of the last eleven point games and has recently lost a lot of humor with 0: 2 at Union Berlin.
This was the clear as well as surprising home win against Bochum (3: 0) again waste. Darmstadt has also only achieved a great success in the last nine games and has fallen behind in every (!) Of these games! Although the lilies still superficially sedating six points ahead of relegation and relegation place, but the can be used up quickly in view of the own form weakness and significantly strengthened competition in the table cellar. Against this background, the direct duel at just over 60 kilometers away Neighbor from the Palatinate already has paramount importance. At the game Sandhausen vs. Darmstadt, the odds of the hosts are slightly lower. However, we assume that both recently weakening counterparties neutralize at a low level, and at Sandhausen.

Sandhausen – Statistics & Current Form

For the first time since the second league promotion seven years ago, the small town just outside Heidelberg sees itself confronted with an acute relegation battle, after the SVS has always held the class more or less confidently in the years before. Above all, the complete replacement of the attack after the departure of last year’s top scorer Lucas Höler was primarily in the initial phase of the round can not be compensated and has cost the coach Kenan Kocak somewhat surprising job. Successor Uwe Koschinat of the third-placed Fortuna Köln had a dream break in 4-0 against Ingolstadt, but then remained nine games without a win. As the critical voices piled up over the inexperience of the 47-year-old, Sandhausen’s President Jürgen Machmeier spoke a word of power and excluded another change of coach for the current round. Whether out of deep conviction or because of the known clammy finances the Nordbadener remains hidden.

“We had big problems in the early stages and were inferior in physicality. I did not expect this constellation that way. ” – Uwe Kozhinat

If you get more involved with the work of Koschinat, the positive facts will prevail. The native Koblenzer has stabilized the initially fragile defensive, apart from isolated outliers, significantly and also improved the previously desolate opportunity utilization significantly. Likewise, individual players have visibly evolved under the Egsch of Koschinat. So scorer Fabian Schleusener scored seven of his eight goals after the coaching change. A nuisance to the Nordbadenern but late conceded. This Sandhausen has already lost 14 points in the course of the round – negative league record! Most recently in the away game at Union Berlin had such a 0-2 final score, however, no more crucial game influence, as the SVS after the early deficit never got access to the one-sided encounter, which irritated especially the athletic training manager visibly. Now the SVS wants to build on the strong performance from the last home match against Bochum (3: 0) in the trend-setting neighborhood duel against the lilies. Sandhausen vs. Darmstadt are the home team slightly favored by the odds. Due to injury Rossipal and Daghfous are not available.

Darmstadt – Statistics & Current Form

Darmstadt’s sporting crisis continues unabated! After the 1: 2 home defeat against Heidenheim, the lilies of the last nine games have won only the one against St. Pauli (2: 1) at the start of the season, as Heller and Dursun still provided for the late turn. In hindsight, this was probably only a positive slip-up in the otherwise completely intact downward trend. Just a glance at the statistics paints the reluctant devil in the South Hessian metropolis on the wall. With 39 goals in the worst defense of the league, only one goal in the first half of the last nine games and fall behind in each of these games – alarming values ​​that promise nothing good for the rest of the round course. The lilies had massively staffed during the winter break and committed no less than five new players, all of whom were in the starting eleven against Heidenheim. However, this was more due to the weakness of the previous regular staff than their at least recognizable qualities.

“We are all so realistic that we are already in a relegation battle.” – Defender Marcel Franke

Ex-captain and defender Aytac Sulu, who has recently moved to the Turkish homeland, is missing in all directions, although this latter was far from the zenith of his former record. Even the so long dreaded by the competition “Lilien-Galligkeit” remains for quite some time completely on the track. After the permanent arrears in the last few weeks, at least in part there was a rebelliousness, but why did it have to come this far? While Darmstadt’s iconic “Bölle” is currently being extensively renovated, the team is simultaneously developing a redevelopment case. Also coach Dirk Schuster is facing this questionable development seemingly helpless. The former “Coach of the Year” has always been committed to a solid defensive, but currently his team has degenerated to the shooting gallery of the league. Has the magic slowly disappeared from the architect of the Darmstadt football miracle? Already the trend-setting game on Friday at the Nordbadischen neighbors from Sandhausen can substantiate this question sustainable. In the team you know in any case, what has struck the hour. In the eminently important neighborhood duel in Sandhausen coach Schuster injury due to lack of green and Gündüz.

Heuer Fernandes-Herrmann, Franke, Wittek, Holland-Palsson, Moritz-Heller, Kempe, Bertram-Dursun
