Darmstadt vs Bayer Leverkusen: Match Preview and Prediction

Darmstadt vs Bayer Leverkusen: After suffering a defeat at the hands of Union Berlin by a score of 1-0 in their most recent match, Darmstadt will not want to replicate their previous performance here.

Darmstadt enjoyed 50% of the possession in that game and none of their 16 total shots on goal went in. Union Berlin, on the other hand, made 21 total attempted shots on goal, scoring only one of them. Union Berlin’s Benedict Hollerbach (62′) scored a goal.

Darmstadt’s defensive tenacity has been all too infrequent in recent games. In fact, Darmstadt’s defence has been weakened in six of their past six games, allowing 13 goals to be scored. We’ll simply have to wait and see if that trend continues in this game, even though it would be interesting.

In their most recent match, Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Mönchengladbach drew 0-0 in the Bundesliga 1. Bayer Leverkusen enjoyed 75% of the possession in that match and made 28 total attempted shots, none of which was on goal. None of B. M’gladbach’s four shots on goal were on target.

Due to a string of strong defensive performances, Bayer Leverkusen has only allowed three goals in their last six games combined. Their forwards have scored 16 goals throughout the same period.

Coming into this clash, nine of Bayer Leverkusen’s previous league games played away from home ended in victories for the team. When it comes to travelling, they have been quite helpful.

Darmstadt vs Bayer Leverkusen: Betting Analysis

The previous league match between these two teams took place on February 9, 2023, on Match Day 3 of Bundesliga 1. Bayer Leverkusen emerged victorious with a score of 5-1, claiming victory over Darmstadt.

During that period, Bayer Leverkusen possessed 72% of the ball and made 25 total attempted shots, five of which were on goal. Adam Hložek (83′), Jonas Hofmann (67′), Exequiel Palacios (49′), and Victor Boniface (21′, 61′) all scored goals.

Of Darmstadt’s five shots on goal, just one of them was successful in hitting the target. After 24 minutes, Oscar Vilhelmsson scored a goal. In the role of referee, Sven Jablonski was present.

Torsten Lieberknecht, the Darmstadt manager, will not be starting for Braydon Manu (ankle injury), Clemens Riedel (broken ankle), Mathias Honsak (calf injury), Aaron Seydel (muscular issues), and Fraser Hornby (ankle injury).

The manager of Bayer Leverkusen, Xabi Alonso, has no concerns whatsoever about his team’s fitness going into this game because there are no injuries in the squad from which to pick.
