Holstein Kiel’s three match unbeaten run got here to an finish in midweek as they fell to a deserved defeat at Bochum, however we’re predicting them to have a extra profitable time of issues on Saturday.
After a rocky begin to the season which noticed them lose 4 of their opening seven Bundesliga 2 video games, Holstein Kiel’s have been remarkably troublesome to beat. In truth, Wednesday’s loss was simply their third defeat in 12 matches, together with a implausible 3-2 win over Stuttgart final weekend.
This has pushed Die Storche into promotion rivalry, though with eight factors separating them from third positioned Stuttgart it’s nonetheless very a lot on the far finish of their spectrum proper now.
Arminia Bielefeld are a troublesome staff to play although – they wouldn’t be high of the Bundesliga 2 standings in the event that they weren’t. Nevertheless, the leaders haven’t discovered their swagger since coming back from the enforced break in play, with a colorless goalless draw at Hamburg final weekend following on from a disappointing draw at dwelling to the relegation threatened Osnabruck.
The guests are undoubtedly a troublesome staff to beat and deserve their place on the high of the desk, however they’re but to rediscover their type and we’re anticipating one other irritating day on the workplace on Saturday.
With Holstein Kiel dropping solely two of their final eight dwelling league video games and dealing with a Die Blauen aspect with only one win of their final six highway journeys, backing a Holstein Kiel win or draw double probability seems to be good worth for cash right here.
We predict one other stalemate for Arminia Bielefeld, although. Three of Holstein Kiel’s final seven at dwelling have resulted in 1-1 attracts, and with 4 of Bielefeld’s final six away days additionally ending all sq. we’re going for a 1-1 appropriate rating prediction.
