Darmstadt vs Ingolstadt Predictions

Last season’s promoted sides, Ingolstadt and Darmstadt, are set to face off this Saturday, with both teams struggling for points at the bottom of the Bundesliga. Darmstadt’s poor away form continued before the international break with a valiant 3-2 defeat away to Bayer Leverkusen, but the Lilies should be confident regardless out on their home turf. Darmstadt have taken all eight of their points so far this season at the Jonathan-Heimes-Stadion (W2 D2 L1), with a win against the (then) in-form Frankfurt and a draw against the unbeaten TSG Hoffenheim being notable results.

Ingolstadt, meanwhile, are under new leadership – that of coach Maik Walpurgis – after their 2-0 defeat at home to FC Augsburg saw coach Markus Kauczinski’s short reign come to an end. He was unable to guide Ingolstadt to all three points in any of their 10 matches so far – Ingolstadt are without a win in the 2016/2017 campaign (D2 L8) – or break their 15 match win-less run which stretches back to last season.

Ingolstadt somehow find themselves coming into this as slight favourites with the bookies at 11/8, but the hosts are the better bet here for the following reasons: not only are Ingolstadt in awful shape overall, one of only three teams in Bundesliga history to have had two points or fewer after 10 matches, but their away form, in particular, leaves a lot to be desired – Ingolstadt are without a win in 19 consecutive Bundesliga away games since September 2015 (D6 L13) and they’ve taken just 1 point from their last ten matches on the road. Darmstadt’s respectable home form from their five fixtures so far (W2 D2 L1) is enough to warrant them huge value at 21/10, especially considering the opponents they have taken these points from. As such, Darmstadt 0.0 Asian Handicap seems an extremely decent price at 11/10.

Notably, though Ingolstadt struggle on the road, they have scored at least one goal in eight of their last eleven away matches (73%) so both teams to score at 1/1 would also be a reasonable shout. Combining this with the fact that Ingolstadt have conceded exactly 2 goals in 6 of their last 9 away matches (66%) then we also like the look of Darmstadt 2-1 at 11/1 as a correct score bet here.
