Hamburg vs Darmstadt for the German Bundesliga 2 championship match on Sunday at Volksparkstadion Stadium.
In one of the three matches, this Sunday in German football for the national second tier championship of matchday one of the Bundesliga 2, the Hamburg team and the Darmstadt team will meet in Hamburg.
Hamburg will make their debut in this new season in official games, once again aiming to win the promotion to the 1st division of German football.
After the historic team, which had never played in a league other than the Bundesliga was relegated two seasons ago to the 2nd division, last season they failed to return to the place where they always belonged, having an unfortunate campaign. In spite of being for a long time in the promotion zone, they ended up losing the race in the last rounds (especially after 6 games without winning until the penultimate round in 2018/2019).
Thus, the team will undoubtedly seek to improve this record and reach the promotion to the 1st division in this new sporting season.
As for Darmstadt, they come to this inaugural Bundesliga 2 matchday after having a course within what was expected in the previous season, with the team, which is clearly not the strongest in 2nd division of German football, finishing in 10th position of the league table, thus being far from the promotion zone but also not having many problems in the fight for the maintenance in this level of the local football.
Given what has been an irregular path on Hamburg‘s side in recent years, particularly against smaller teams, coupled with the fact that this is an early game of the season, makes me think that this match should have few goals and a lot of balance in midfield.
