In the Monday evening game, VfL Bochum and SV Darmstadt face each other and each fight for the connection to the top of the table. These threaten to lose both teams, they are equal in the middle of the second Bundesliga after the first third of the current season. In particular, at VfL, they are likely to mourn the four missed points from the last two games, in which the Bochum each play a two-goal lead and in the result also a place in the top 5. The Darmstädter, however, were able to win their last two (home) games and get some air on the relegation zone.
After the 12th round VfL Bochum is in 10th place with a record of four victories, five draws and three losses, a goal difference of 21:15 and 17 points. The gap to the top of the table is thus already ten points (with the HSV has already completed a game more). The backlog could have been lower, but the team of head coach Robin Dutt gave away four points in the last two games. Because both in the home game against Jahn Regensburg (3:3) and last weekend at SpVgg Greuther Fürth (2:2) led the Bochum team with two goals and could not bring this each time.
The SV Darmstadt 98 is after the twelfth matchday with a record of five wins, two draws, and five defeats, a balanced goal difference of 17:17 and seventeen points in twelfth place. Here, the Hesse succeeded only in the last two games, a small liberation, because with the two home victories against SpVgg Greuther Fürth (2:0) and 1 FC Magdeburg six points were retracted and expanded the cushion on the relegation to a good seven points. By the way, the lilies have made it to the first place with these two successes in the home table.
While the Darmstädter could distance themselves with a draw and two wins currently a bit of the direct relegation places, stagnated VfL Bochum with last three draws in series in the table midfield. In the upcoming game, however, the hosts are quite clearly favoured by the bookmakers.
