Holstein Kiel vs Bayern Munich
Date: Wednesday, 13 January 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Holstein Stadion, Kiel.
Wednesday’s clash in DFB Pokal against Holstein Kiel is going to be a nice opportunity for Bayern Munich to recover from last Friday’s loss to Borussia Monchengladbach.
Luckily, the price for that loss was not too big, as Leipzig and Leverkusen have failed to win their Bundesliga matches too. However, inconsistency in the last couple of weeks is starting to raise some questions among the Bavarians.
Squad is nowhere close to domination presented in the previous season when they easily became German and European champions.
Can 3rd placed squad on 2. Bundesliga table cause a massive upset?
Home win odds of 17.00 definitely don’t imply such thing.
Holstein Kiel vs Bayern Munich Head-to-head
This is going to be the first head to head match between Holstein Kiel and Bayern Munich in history.
Holstein Kiel vs Bayern Munich Prediction
As mentioned above, head manager Hans Flick should be worried because of some recent performances. Even before the loss to M’gladbach, Bayern Munich struggled against Mainz at home, being two goals behind until 50th minute and then making a miraculous comeback. They are still sitting at the first place on the table with 33 points, which is much lower than number of points won in season 2019/20.
The Bavarians won the cup last season by beating Leverkusen in the finals. It is still unknown if Flick is going to use all standard roster players for this clash. Lewandowski could surely use a break after scoring 20 goals in 14 Bundesliga appearances.
As for their opposition, Holstein Kiel had to beat Rielasingen in the first round of this competition. They were quite convincing 7-1 FT. Overall, squad has very high ambitions after collecting 29 points from 15 games and sitting in 3rd place on the second division table. During the last weekend Kiel drew to St Pauli on the road. We don’t think this squad has any chance in stopping Bayern.
