Osnabruck vs Darmstadt Soccer Betting Tips
On Monday evening, we also expect a strike of the home supporters in the 2nd Bundesliga. In the match between Osnabrück and Darmstadt, where – according to the odds – the home side should have slightly ahead, the fans will once more rant about the employee-unfriendly kick-off time on the first weekday of the new week from 20:30 clock. This pure actionism is controversial insofar as the DFL already announced that it would rest on Mondays from 2021 onwards.
From a purely sporting point of view, there are two teams facing each other in the third game day, who have come out of the starting blocks neatly. The newcomer from Osnabrück celebrated two weeks ago at the 1-0 in Sandhausen, the first three points in the new league; The lilies have even been able to post four counters on the account.
Especially the defense of the Hessians has been convincing so far. Only a penalty by Aaron Hunt in injury time to kick off at Hamburger SV provided for a goal from the charges of coach Grammozis, who has left within a very short time a visible signature on Böllenfalltor.
Because the violets are not to be underestimated in front of their home crowd and last week even Champions League participants RB Leipzig were on the brink of defeat, we would be in a duel against Osnabrück. Darmstadt do not dare to predict the outcome of the game. Instead, we prophesy a contested and possibly scoreless match in which nuances on victory or bankruptcy will decide.
Osnabrück – Statistics & Current Form
Even the rise in the past season 2018/2019 was a real coup for VfL Osnabrück. Although the violets are financially not necessarily bedded on roses and actually did not have the highest ambitions in the direction of the second league, stood after 38 matchdays, the third division championship.
Coach Daniel Thioune has managed to form a working collective in which each player knows his exact role and puts himself at the service of the team. Personal Animosities are hired behind and instead pulled together on a strand. What the violets are actually able to afford, was only in the week before again clear.
In front of their home crowd, VfL offered the Champions League participants RB Leipzig a great fight, which in the end was not rewarded. 2: 3 it was from the point of view of the second division riser, who conceded within two minutes equal to two goals to 1: 2 and 1: 3.
“Despite all the praise, I expect the team to go to Darmstadt 98 with the same intensity, courage and passion next Monday.” – Coach Thioune after the end in the DFB Cup
For long stretches of the game, however, the lilane defensive was very stable, which helped our Osnabrück win. Darmstadt prediction gives additional expression.
On the first match day it was only a few minutes at home against Heidenheim, in which the hosts lost the order and had to concede two goals. As soon as the Thioune team is able to concentrate on their own boots for more than 90 minutes, by far the best defenses of the last third league season (only 31 goals scored) will often be able to play a league above zero.
A prime example is the away win on Matchday 2 in Sandhausen when a direct free-kick by Marcos Alvarez in the final quarter of an hour was enough to celebrate the first three.
Coach Thioune will warn his partially inexperienced players on Monday night before the players’ transfer match. Excessive risk in their own offensive actions is therefore not expected despite the home advantage. Consequently, before the duel Osnabrück vs.. Darmstadt also the odds for under 2.5 goals or for a scoreless first half an appealing value.
Maurice Trapp, Simon Haubrock, Bashkim Ajdini, Konstantin Engel, Bryan Henning and Alexander Riemann will not be available for injury on the mission to clinch their first competitive home win since April 20. Due to the tense staffing situation, a well-established center-back from England was re-assigned during the week with Joost van Aken.
Expected formation of Osnabrück:
↪ Körber – Wolze, Konrad, Heyer, Gugganig, Agu – Taffertshofer, Blacha, Amenyido, Ouahim – Heider (Alvarez)
↪ Coach: Thioune

Darmstadt – Statistics & Current Form
Since early March, former Bundesliga player Dimitrios Grammozis has been on the SVD command bridge. Because the German-Greek previously worked exclusively in junior as a coach, the people in charge of the Hesse surprised at that time with this obligation many experts.
Today, however, it is fair to say that President Rüdiger Fritsch and the other decision-makers have proved to be quite lucky. In the 14 official games under Grammozis the Darmstadt celebrated eight victories and received only three defeats (three draws).
After the league’s last season confidently deflated in the past season, the fans now hope for another carefree season, in which may even be the view a little higher up. In any case, the lilies left a positive impression in the first two second division matches.
At the start, the blue and white were just about to take all three counters with the promotion aspirants from Hamburg. The interim 1-0 lead, however, held only until the final minute before the HSV in person of Aaron Hunt put a questionable penalty in goal.
Due to the late stroke of the neck, however, the previous decade could not bring lasting relief from the concept and finally picked up a week later, what was just missed in Volksparkstadion. Against Holstein Kiel, the lilies celebrated a deserved 2-0 victory, in which again the defensive made an important contribution.
The very decent defense against two high-quality offensive ranks from Hamburg and Kiel is also one of the reasons why we on Monday evening between Osnabrück and Darmstadt a tip that both teams will not score, a very high probability.
The dress rehearsal last weekend went according to plan. In the first round of the DFB Cup, the fifth division Oberneuland was defeated 6: 1 as expected. The goal had to be accepted shortly after the half-time break and was due to a lack of concentration. Structurally, the SVD defense is in our eyes the best that the second Bundesliga has to offer.
“One should break away from the idea, more possession means that I am dominant. So far, the focus has been on minimizing goals. ” – Dimitrios Grammozis
In addition, Grammozis announced in his preview of the third match day already that the focus will again be on their own defensive. The 41-year-old deliberately wants to leave the possession of the ball to the hosts, and then quickly switch from a compact defensive forward. If this does not succeed, it is also not excluded that the Hesse this time without own hit.
Goalkeeper Marcel Schuhen (broken arm) as well as the offensive players Felix Platte, Mathias Honsak (both hamstring) and Braydon Manu (capsule tear on the knee) will continue to be unavailable due to injury. Whether the last-battered Erich Berko for the first time an option for the squad is questionable. Many changes compared to recent performances are not expected anyway.
Expected formation of Darmstadt:
↪ Stritzel – Holland, Dumic, Höhn, Herrmann – Strong – Skarke, Mehlem, Schnellhardt, Heller – Dursun
↪ Coach: Grammozis
Last matches of Darmstadt:
⚽️ 11.08.2019 – Oberneuland vs. Darmstadt 1: 6 (DFB Cup)
⚽️04.08.2019 – Darmstadt vs Kiel 2: 0 (2nd Bundesliga)
⚽️ 28.07.2019 – HSV vs. Darmstadt 1: 1 (2nd Bundesliga)
⚽️ 20.07.2019 – Darmstadt vs Vitesse Arnhem 0: 1 (friendly)
⚽️ 13.07.2019 – Werder Bremen vs. Darmstadt 1: 1 (friendly)
Osnabruck vs Darmstadt Direct Comparison & Statistics Highlights
In the 2nd Bundesliga there have been 18 duels between Osnabrück and Darmstadt. A prediction for the Hessians would have been successful in seven cases (seven draws, four draws). At the Bremen Bridge, however, the yield of the lilies with only two victories in nine attempts is not very positive.
To what extent the direct comparison can be used as a benchmark, any sports weather should anyway answer individually for themselves, since the teams last faced 2013/2014 in the 3rd league. Compared to the then 1: 1 on Monday, probably no one is left on the court.

The third match day in the 2nd Bundesliga will end on Monday evening at 20:30 clock with the match Osnabrück against Darmstadt. The betting odds imply a wafer-thin favorite role for the hosts, who, however, have not won a league game since April 20, 2019 in front of their home crowd.
Nonetheless, the recent impressions of the Thioune team were very positive, even though they narrowly missed the sensation in the DFB Pokal last week when they beat RB Leipzig 2: 3.

Key facts – Osnabrück vs Darmstadt tips
⭐️ Osnabrück has not won a mandatory home game since mid-April
⭐️ Darmstadt’s only goal on the first two matchdays resulted from a penalty
⭐️ We expect a tactical match with many duels in the midfield
With the SVD, an opponent is now waiting for the Lower Saxony, who has his strengths on the defensive and wants to switch quickly after winning the ball. In Hamburg (1: 1) and at home against Holstein Kiel (2: 0), the Grammozis team had a good success, which is why the coach will not change the approach.
We expect a tactical duel on equal terms, in which the team that scored the first goal, should have clear advantages on their side. Even a long 0: 0 because of the aforementioned signs for not unlikely.
The bottom line is that we decide between Osnabrück and Darmstadt for the tip that this time not both teams to score. A goalless draw is just as realistic as a narrow 1-0 or 2-0 win for one of the two teams.
