Darmstadt 98 Vs Borussia Dortmund German Bundesliga Live Online Commentary
Darmstadt has continued to struggle in this cmapaign as the side only has two victoies to show after 19 Bundesliga Gameweeks. Die Lilien are rock bottom of the 18-team German top flight division at the moment, six points behind closest rival FC Ingolstadt at 17th spot. They were defeated by Eintracht Frankfurt, 0–2, last Sunday away from home at the Commerzbank Arena for their second consecutive loss. Torsten Frings’ men were able to keep the score at 0–0 at the half-tome but was not able to stop the hosts from scoring two in the second half, courtesy of Japanese midfielder Makoto Hasebe and Croatian striker Ante Rebic in the 74th and 83rd minutes. Ahead of this match the hosts have just one injury concern: that of Ukrainian winger Denys Oliynyk.
On the other side, Borussia Dortmund, last season’s Bundesliga runners-up, has won two of their last three outings to move up to fourth spot in the table, only one game behind Eintracht Frankfurt and tied on points with fifth-place squad Hoffenheim but has a higher goal differential. Die Borussen won second-place team RB Leipzig, 1–0, at their home ground of Signal Iduna Park last Saturday. The forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who was returning from his recent international stint in the African Cup of Nations, headed the winning goal for Thomas Tuchel’s side in the 35th minute. The cross came from French starlet winger Ousmane Dembélé. Both sides went scoreless from there as Dortmund handed the newly-promoted squad only their third defeat this season so far. As regards injury news: the visitors are doubtful over Nuri Sahin, Sebastian Rode, Sven Bender and Ousmane Dembele ahead of this clash.
