Sunday’s Football Bet of the Day see’s me delve into the German second tier and there’s two matches I like the look of to form an appealing looking double.

Darmstadt 98 vs Schalke 04

🇩🇪 2. Bundesliga  

⏰ Sunday 17th April, 12:30

League leaders Schalke travel to the Merck-Stadion am Böllenfalter to take on fellow promotion-rivals Darmstadt on Sunday lunchtime. The hosts are currently positioned in fourth, just two points behind their table-topping visitors.

Darmstadt lost for the second successive match on their travels last time out, as they were defeated 3-1 by fifth-placed Nürnberg. After winning six of their opening seven matches at home in the league this season, Darmstadt’s home form has been rather patchy in recent months, winning just two of their last seven (W2-D3-L2). Torsten Liebernecht’s hosts have struggled defensively in recent months, conceding in eight of their last nine 2. Bundesliga matches, as well as in each of their last seven at home. Die Lilien have found the back of the net in 25/29 of their league matches this season and are the division’s second-highest scorers, finding the back of the net on 57 occasions.

Schalke made it four consecutive wins in the 2. Bundesliga last time out, as they defeated playoff-hopefuls Heidenheim 3-0 in Gelsenkirchen last time out. The Royal Blues have won each of their last two on their travels, but prior to that had won just one of their previous seven (W1-D3-L3). Schalke have conceded in seven of their last nine matches away from home, with both clean sheets coming against the bottom-two. Schalke have found the back of the net in all bar one of their 29 league fixtures this season and are the divisions top-scorers, finding the back of the net 59 times.

Heidenheim vs Erzgebirge Aue

🇩🇪 2. Bundesliga 

⏰ Sunday 17th April, 12:30

Heidenheim will look to keep their playoff hoes alive, as they host bottom side Erzgebirge Aue at the Voith-Arena. The hosts come into this in seventh, eight points off third-placed St. Pauli, while the visitors are bottom, ten points off the relegation playoff spot.

Heidenheim’s struggles away from home continued last time out, as they lost 3-0 away to table-topping Schalke. Heidenheim do have the second-best home record in the German second tier, collecting 31 points from a possible 42 (W9-D3-L1). Frank Schmidt’s side actually come into this winning seven of their last eight on home turf, scoring 17 goals. Heidenheim have scored on multiple occasions in nine of their last 11 at home, including in six of their last seven.

Erzgebirge Aue lost for the fourth consecutive match last time out, as they lost 1-3 at home to 14th-placed Hannover 96. No side has collected fewer points on their travels than Erzgebirge Aue, with Pavel Dochev’s men earning just eight points from a possible 42. Erzgebirge Aue have the leakiest defence in the German second tier, conceding 61 goals in their opening 29 matches. The Violets have conceded on multiple occasions in 10/14 of their away matches this season, including in each of their last seven.

Bet of the Day

The two highest-scorers in the 2. Bundesliga go head-to-head on Sunday lunchtime, as league leaders Schalke travel to fourth-placed Darmstadt, with just two points separating the sides. These two have found the back of the net in 53/58 of their combined matches this season and given Darmstadt have conceded in each of their last seven at home and the visitors in seven of their last nine away, we should see goals at both ends here.
Heidenheim have the second-best home record in the 2. Bundesliga and come into this winning seven of their last eight on home turf. They should be too strong for bottom side Erzgebirge Aue who have lost each of their last four and who have the worst away record in the division. The Violets have conceded on multiple occasions in each of their last seven away from home and there’s a good chance they’ll do so here against a Heidenheim side that’s scored two or more in nine of their last seven at home.

  • Heidenheim to Score 2+
