Team News: Darmstadt
Darmstadt boss Markus Anfang will be grateful to have no fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this game with a completely healthy group to pick from.
Team News: Eintracht Braunschweig
Braunschweig boss Daniel Meyer has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Leon Bürger (Metatarsal Fracture), Iba May (Knee Problems), Niko Kijewski (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Matthias Heiland (Torn Muscle Fibre), Suleiman Abdullahi (Knee Problems) and Leandro Putaro (Muscular problems) can’t be considered.
We feel that Eintracht Braunschweig should be able to find the back of the net against this Darmstadt lineup, however it may not prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We think that it’s going to be both teams to score in a 2-1 winning margin for Darmstadt by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. Could easily see this go either way.
