    Greuther Furth set for promotion boost at Darmstadt

    The race for promotion to the Bundesliga is an exciting one, as the Bundesliga.2 campaign nears its end. One of the teams hoping to be mixing it with the German heavyweights next season is Greuther Furth, who on Friday night visit midtable Darmstadt.

    The home side is currently in the limbo of 12th place in the table. They are nine points clear of the relegation play-off spot and seem unlikely to be sucked into the bottom three this season.

    However, they are 15 points off third-place spot and the promotion play-off berth, which is currently occupied by Friday night’s visitors.

    Darmstadt’s recent form has been relatively decent, as the home team has won three of their last five matches in the German second tier while suffering just one defeat. The points picked up in the run are what has kept them clear of danger in Bundesliga.2.

    Markus Anfang’s team have been poor on home soil of late, winning just three of their last eight home games in the league, while suffering five defeats in the process.

    Greuther Furth will see this game as a massive opportunity to climb into the automatic promotion spots. The visitors are only outside the top two courtesy of an inferior goal difference to second-place Hamburg.

    This is their game in hand on Hamburg, so even a point would give Greuther Furth the promotion advantage over their illustrious promotion rivals.

    Stefan Leitl’s team have been highly inconsistent of late in the German second tier, as they have won just two of their last five matches in the Bundesliga.2. However, they have also been hard to beat, losing just once in 12 league outings.

    The visitors have been tough to beat on their travels, as they are unbeaten in six away games in the Bundesliga.2.

    Forebet predicts that Greuther Furth will boost their chances of playing Bundesliga football next season by recording a victory in a high-scoring clash.
