Points are the priority for bottom club Darmstadt, who next face Augsburg at home on Saturday (kick-off 15:30CET/14:30GMT).
Darmstadt enjoyed a famous win over Borussia Dortmund on Matchday 20 but they came crashing down to earth with a 2-0 defeat at Hoffenheim a week later. The Lilies have gathered all 12 of their points at home this season and a fourth win in front of their supporters would boost their hopes of avoiding the drop.
Augsburg have followed up two wins in a row with two defeats in succession – the latest of which was a 3-1 reverse at home to Bayer Leverkusen. Manuel Baum’s team are still 13th in the standings but they could do with a positive result on Saturday if they are to avoid being dragged into a relegation battle.
