Greuther Furth vs Holstein Kiel
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 29 September 2019
Kick-off at 12:30 UK / 13:30 CET
Venue: Sportpark Ronhof Thomas Sommer (Fürth).
Greuther Fuerth’s four-match unbeaten run was brought to an abrupt halt the other week on the road by the current table-toppers who slotted two unanswered goals past them to walk away with all three points. The squad failed to make much of an impact in that matchup and achieved no more than three shots on target from their attempted fifteen.
Holstein Kiel have been struggling to get things going for them and have just one win to boast of from their seven games so far. The visitors are sporting a dismal two-match losing streak at the moment, the last of which was a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Hannover on home soil.
The home team have a six-point cushion in the ladder over this foe and are more than likely to extend their lead with a victory this week.
Greuther Furth vs Holstein Kiel Head to head (h2h)

- Only one of their last four fixtures have finished as a stalemate.
Greuther Furth vs Holstein Kiel Prediction
The hosts have picked up maximum points from their last two games here and have scored three goals from those matchups while conceding just once.
On the other hand, Kiel have been at the losing end in each of their outings so far and have admitted defeat by a two-goal margin or more in two of their last three. In addition, the away side have not got the better of this foe in any of their last two visits here either.
Given the home advantage and the positive form that Fuerth are on, it goes without saying that a fourth successive away defeat is certainly staring Kiel in the face.
Furthermore, the away side have been dismal in front of goal and have lost without getting their names on the scoresheet twice in their last three trips on the road. Considering that their previous head to head clash here also saw the hosts break the deadlock, by all means, count on Greuther Fuerth to draw first blood.
