At the bottom of the Bundesliga table, Darmstadt will be facing a tough challenge when they host the hungry-to-win Borussia Dortmund at the Stadion am Bollenfaltor in the 20th round of the German Bundesliga.
The Hosts Are Struggling
The hosts have been struggling in the relegation zone since the start of the season. The team is now the first candidate to get relegated come the end of the season. They have been having a very poor run of form in their last few weeks. They lost four of their last five league games and drew in the remaining one. Darmstadt have collected a total of 1 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Bundesliga. Their last league match was against Eintracht Frankfurt away from home where they lost 2-0.
Darmstadt are currently sitting in the 18th place in the league table. They have 9 points from 2 wins, 3 draws and 14 losses. The team scored 12 goals and conceded 38 since the start of the season.
Fabian Holland and Leon Guwara compete for the spot at left-back. Hamit Altintop could offer a more defensive-minded option in central attacking midfield against a strong Dortmund side.
Borussia Dortmund Need The Three Points
The visitors have been struggling with injuries since the start of the reason. Despite the fact that the team have played the last month without the likes of MArco Reus, Mario Gotze and Aubameyang, they haven’t lost any of their last five games. Borussia Dortmund have collected a total of 9 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Bundesliga. Their last league match was against RB Leipzig at home where they won 1-0.
Borussia Dortmund are currently sitting in the 4th place in the league table. They have 34 points from 9 wins, 7 draws and 3 losses. They have scored 39 goals and conceded 21 since the start of the season.
Thomas Tuchel has revealed Marco Reus, Ousmane Dembele, Marcel Schmelzer, Matthias Ginter and Lukasz Piszczek are all nursing knocks here and will be assessed closer to the match.
The Borussia Dortmund head coach insists the strongest available players will feature this weekend despite the fact they face Benfica in the Champions League next week.
Head To Head
Borussia Dortmund have won 2 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in September 2016 when the final score was 6-0 to the visitors in a very one sided affair.
