Match Preview: Norwich City v SV Darmstadt 98

28 August 2020

Norwich City’s pre-season preparations will conclude on Saturday with a final set of friendly games against SV Darmstadt 98.

To help build fitness and get more minutes under the belts of every player, both sides have agreed to two 90-minute matches.

The first match is due to take place at 11am BST, with the second game scheduled for 1pm BST.

The 2. Bundesliga side have had mixed fortunes in pre-season so far, having followed an emphatic 6-0 win over Eintracht Trier with a 2-1 defeat to Wehen Wiesbaden.

Meanwhile, the Canaries’ pre-season could hardly have gone better, with games against MK Dons, SC Verl and Dynamo Dresden providing three wins, 11 goals and three clean sheets.

With Norwich and Darmstadt both in the second tier of their respective pyramids, on paper Saturday’s fixtures present our toughest tests yet.

Darmstadt missed out on the playoffs for promotion to the Bundesliga by just three points in 2019-20.

As usual, fans will be able to follow updates throughout the matches on our Twitter and Facebook pages.

SV Darmstadt will also be streaming the games live on their YouTube channel.
