Holstein Kiel vs Augsburg
Germany – DFB Pokal
Date: Wednesday, 6th February 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Holstein-Stadion (Kiel).
The Round of 16 of the German domestic cup is underway. Fuggerstadter is pitted with second division side Kiel. The apparent difference in quality between the respective leagues should definitely play a role in the outcome of the game.
The Storks have impressed in the 2.Bundesliga this season. The last match-day, they defeated Regensburg with a 2-0 scoreline, at home. The first goal came quite early, and then the team resorted to defending. It was tough for the visitors to find spaces, and Tim Walter’s men definitely succeeded in frustrating their opponents. As the match entered its final ten minutes, the desperation of Jahn Eleven let them down and led to another goal.
Alfred Finnbogason played spoilsport and recorded a hattrick to present Augsburg with three points against Mainz, in the last league game. Their opponents held a respectable 11th spot in the league table, and the manner of the win will definitely have raised the team morale.

Holstein Kiel vs Augsburg Prediction
Die Storche has scored in 16 of their last 17 overall games, and in 13 of their last 14 home-ties. Manuel Baum’s men have done so in five of their last six fixtures, and in 12 of their last 15 away ties. The team based in the city of Kiel has conceded in 14 of their last 17 home-ties, while their counterparts did the same in 12 of their last 14 match-ups and in 11 of their last 12 trips on the road. These observations lead us to the inference that goals will come at either of the pitch.
The experience that the team from Bavaria holds, in the top tier will definitely be their biggest advantage in this game. Moreover, they come into the tie after defeating Mainz, a formidable Bundesliga opponent with a 3-0 scoreline. The favorites are surely the visitors, and it is hard to see them not winning the fixture.
