Darmstadt 98 vs Ingolstadt
Date: Saturday 19th November, 2016
Kick-off: 14:30 UK
Venue: Jonathan-Heimes-Stadion am Bollenfalltor, Darmstadt.
Darmstadt 98 will host Ingolstadt in the match of a huge importance for both teams. None of the two sides can be especially proud knowing that they have lost last couple games in a row entering the 11th round of Bundesliga. It is obvious that these two teams will be among the main candidates for the relegation battle at the end of the season.
The visitors, who are still looking for the first victory of the season, just cannot afford yet another defeat which would significantly challenge their ambitions of providing at least some sort of resistance while we are still in the early stage of the season.
While Darmstadt led by Norbert Meier had their silver lining in the 3-1 win over then-struggling Wolfsburg three weeks ago. However, they failed to take advantage of the momentum and keep it up since they lost two matches that followed. Truth be told, they did have a difficult schedule facing the strong teams likes RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen. The good thing for Meier is surely the fact his team managed to score two goals at BayArena in the last round.
Ingolstadt hired the new head coach after a series of devastating results. The new manager Mark Walpurgis will have a huge task awakening his attacking line, since the team failed to score a single goal in last four matches in all competitions. Interestingly, Ingolstadt played a 3-3 draw with Borussia Dortmund on home ground not that long time ago.
