Darmstadt 98 vs Bayern Munich: Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips

This betting preview contains recent form, possible lineups, injury news, match predictions and betting tips for Darmstadt 98 vs Bayern Munich.

Fixture: Darmstadt 98 vs Bayern Munich
League: Bundesliga
Venue: Merck-Stadion am Böllenfalltor
Date: Sunday, December 18
Kick-off: 14:30 GMT

Betting Preview:

Darmstadt are rock-bottom of the Bundesliga having lost all of their last six fixtures and being on the winning side on just a couple of occasions this season. Although they have picked up all eight of their points at the Merck-Stadion.

After losing their first match of the season last month versus Dortmund, Bayern Munich have bounced back in style, earning three consecutive victories and scoring ten times in the process.

Match Prediction:

The visitors have over four times as many points (33) as Darmstadt (8) after 14 matches. We expect them to dominate from the off and having found their rhythm in recent weeks a one-sided affair could be the outcome.

Bayern have a better points-per-game average vs. Darmstadt (2.7) than against any other side they’ve met more than three times in the Bundesliga, whilst their oppositions average possession of 38% is dwarfed by their 64% per game.

Carlo Ancelotti can afford to rest some key players ahead of their top of the league clash versus Leipzig on Wednesday, so it’s very difficult to predict their starting XI for this match.

Possible Lineups:

Bayern Munich: Neuer; Rafinha, Boateng, Hummels, Alaba; Lahm, Alonso; Costa, Muller, Robben; Lewandowski
Darmstadt: Esser; Fedetskyy, Niemeyer, Sulu, Holland; Gondorf, Vrancic; Sirigu, Rosenthal, Heller; Schipplock

Injury News:

Bayern Munich: Coman (out), Green (out)
Darmstadt: Platte (out), Hohn (out), Kleinheisler (susp)

Betting Tips:

Match Result: Bayern HT/FT @ 1.44

 

*ENHANCED* Bayern Win By 3 Or More Goals  @2.25
