Half of the German championship of the second division is already behind and the situation of Kaiserslautern remains the same, bad results and the last position of the table.

The moment of the Darmstadt team is not good, as it is among the last classifieds of the competition and will have to show better football in this day to get a positive result and thus climb a little in the leaderboard. The visiting team is the red lantern of the competition and knows that they need to recover as quickly as possible, so in this game they will try to surprise the home team and conquer at least one point. The two teams must study each other for a good part of the game, to attack with intelligence and not be surprised in the counterattacks. For the aforementioned facts we will bet that no more than 2.5 goals will be scored in this match.
