Reason For Darmstadt vs Ingolstadt Betting Tips
Even though Darmstadt sit lower in the league, in 13th place compared with Ingolstadt’s 9th place with seven points between them, both teams are enjoying solid Bundesliga campaigns for “newly” promoted sides – neither side has been in among the relegation places all season. Darmstadt, the side more at risk, are edging ever closer to safety following their 2-1 victory at Hamburg last weekend and now stand four points clear of the relegation zone.
Ingolstadt’s could secure themselves Bundesliga survival, under the correct circumstances, with a win on Saturday. Victory for Ralph Hasenhüttl’s Ingolstadt would take them to 42 points and, if both Werder Bremen and Eintracht Frankfurt lose, another season in the top flight. Ingolstadt have proved they are made for the top flight and come into this match also having won last time out, an impressive 1-0 win at home to fifth-place Borussia M’gladbach.
Both teams are in decent form coming into this match – Darmstadt are unbeaten in five games (W1 D4), a record streak for the club in the Bundesliga, and Ingolstadt have won their last two and are in search of a new club record, having never won three in-a-row in the top flight before. The two sides have met five times competitively, Ingolstadt’s 3-1 win in the reverse fixture remains the only match they have won coming from behind, with exactly four goals being scored in all of them. Both Darmstadt’s and Ingolstadt’s recent results indicate current trends towards both teams scoring – both teams have scored in four from Darmstadt’s last five matches and in all of FC Ingolstadt’s last three away games. Combining the above analysis with the statistics below, expect both teams to score and Ingolstadt’s most common away result, a 1-1 draw at 11/2 being top value in this match.
