On Sunday afternoon, Darmstadt and Werder Bremen go head-to-head at the Merck-Stadion am Bollenfalltor as the home team looks for their first Bundesliga win of the season.Darmstadt form guide
The home team has struggled to pick up results in the Bundesliga since earning promotion to the German top flight last season. In fact, Darmstadt have lost four of their five league matches this season.
A significant factor in Darmstadt’s poor form in the Bundesliga has been a vulnerable defence, as they have conceded at least three goals in their last four outings in the German top-flight.
Darmstadt’s poor record in the Bundesliga has not only started this season, as they have now failed to win in their last eight matches in the German top flight, having suffered six defeats dating back to their previous spell in the top division in season 2016/17.Werder Bremen form guide
The visitors have endured a highly inconsistent start to the new Bundesliga campaign, winning two and losing three of their last five league games. Last time out in the German top flight, Ole Werner’s team recorded a 2-1 win over Koln.
Their recent Bundesliga games have at least been entertaining, with over 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five outings in the German top flight.
Werder Bremen have been poor travellers of late in the Bundesliga, as they have suffered five consecutive away defeats in the league. The visitor's main issue on their travels has been conceding too many goals, as Werder has now conceded at least two goals in 11 of their last 14 league matches on their travels.What am I backing?
Darmstadt have been woeful this season, while Werder don’t travel well. I believe this clash will be a high-scoring game. Therefore, I am backing over 2.5 goals scored.
