    Playing against: Avoid his Decimate, each hit grants him free health back. You will want to never give him the option to freely do that. You should also avoid taking extended fights with Darius as he will destroy you thanks to the Hemorrhage passive, take short trades instead and you can beat him. Keep in mind that he's a lane bully much like Renekton etc. and most Darius players pick Ghost. If you make one mistake, you can/will with most certainty get completely punished for it.

    Your main objective isn't about the matchup honestly. Do 2 things and you will both come out of the laning phase well and you won't be that behind. 1. Focus on farming, don't miss CS that's easy to get and 2. It's not all about the kills and greeding over said kills will often backfire.

    Ok, any tips on CSing safely? Also, there have been a few times where I’ve been fairly safe during lane phase, but he still destroys me. Isn’t he supposed to fall off later if he doesn’t get ahead early?

    Let the wave go to your turret. Always try to freeze the wave near your own turret. Even if said thing does sound hard to pull off, it's one of the ways you can farm safely. It gives you the ability to farm without threat and if the enemy jungler wants to come and gank, you can easily run back to your turret. If you let him freeze near his turret, you'll have to walk up more to get CS, meaning that you'll be in more danger.

    Darius doesn't fall off later, he never falls off if he's able to freely farm and get his items. Keep in mind that this is a champion with a built in kit to actually be able to 1v5 if he's strong enough, has enough items and the opportunity.

    Fruxo covered pretty much everything I could think of, just want to add the following:

    If Darius has Apprehend off cooldown you should be extra careful when going in since it often means that you'll try to go in for a short trade, he will beat you a little and grab you back as soon as you try to run away, turning your short trade into a long combat which end is your death.

    Also, when it comes to Darius Decimate sometimes you won't be able to run out of it, you should consider running into it, given that the inner area doesn't hurt as much and won't heal him. Take into account that this obviously gets you closer to him which might mean that you will maximize further damage intake.
