Team News: Heidenheim
David Otto (Hip Injury) and Gianni Mollo (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are unavailable for Heidenheim boss Frank Schmidt. Kevin Sessa cannot play in this game through suspension.
Team News: Darmstadt
Darmstadt manager Markus Anfang has some current player fitness concerns. Mathias Wittek (Fitness) and Victor Pálsson (Finger Injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
We’re thinking that Darmstadt should have enough to put a goal past this Heidenheim lineup, however it is unlikely to be enough to avoid a loss.
We can see a narrow 2-1 victory for Heidenheim when all is said and done. Could easily see this go either way.
