• Jahn Regensburg and Darmstadt drew 2-2 earlier in the season.
  • Over 2.5 goals were scored in five of Jahn Regensburg’s last six matches.
  • Darmstadt’s last three games averaged 3.3 goals per 90 minutes.
  • Darmstadt have already drawn 13 league games this term.

Jahn in the drawing habit

Jahn Regensburg continued their remarkable drawing streak last Friday in their 2-2 tie at Osnabruck – a result that was their 4th draw on the spin since the resumption of play in the 2. Bundesliga last month.

Die Jahnelf’s run of stalemates has pushed their search for a league win to seven games, and Jahn Regensburg managed to take maximum points in just one of their last 10 assignments overall.

With fears that they might still be dragged into a relegation dogfight still abound, Jahn need to start turning some of those draws into victories, though they will struggle to overturn a tough to crack Darmstadt outfit this weekend.

Darmstadt hard to beat

Having lost just once in their last 14 2. Bundesliga fixtures, 5th placed Darmstadt remain one of the hardest teams to beat in the division, though like Jahn, their habit of picking up points in singles has severely hampered their progress this term.

True to form, Darmstadt ended level at 1-1 with Greuther Fürth in their last league outing, bringing their draw tally for the season to a competition high 13 from 29 games.

Nine of those draws took place at Darmstadt’s Merck-Stadion am Böllenfalltor, including their 2-2 draw with Jahn in November last year, which was the third time in as many games where the points were shared between the clubs.

Another draw likely

The return fixture between the sides’ this weekend pits the league’s most potent draw specialists overall against a team in the midst of a drawing streak, and having been well matched in each of their last three encounters, we’re tipping Jahn Regensburg and Darmstadt to cancel each other out again.

In terms of our correct score prediction for Saturday, we think a repeat of their 2-2 draw earlier in the campaign represents good value. Three of Jahns’ last four matches finished with that scoreline, while 50% of Darmstadt’s last eight draws also saw four goals shared between the teams.
