Holstein Kiel vs Darmstadt Prediction
Holstein Kiel were left frustrated with just a point yet again after Sandhausen did just enough to post a 2-2 scorecard in their last clash. Despite taking the initial lead in the opening forty-five minutes of that latter matchup, the hosts succumbed to two quick goals soon after the restart.
The hosts would have made the trip back home empty-handed as well, had it not been for the equalizer from Emmanuel Iyohe in the 75th minute.
As of now, the home team have just two wins to boast of from their previous five fixtures. With twenty-three points to their name, Holstein Kiel are currently sitting tenth on the ladder, sporting a slender two-point cushion over Darmstadt.
Meanwhile, the visitors are on a dismal four-match winless run of their own at the moment. Their last clash, in particular, saw them share the spoils with Hamburger SV in a 2-2 draw at home.
It is also worth mentioning that the guests have not looked sharp in their outings this season. Miserably, they have dropped points in six of their past eight trips on the road in the second division.
To make matters worse, Darmstadt have secured the bragging rights in just one of their last three visits here. With home advantage out of the equation, it goes without saying that a defeat is certainly looming large for Darmstadt in this one.
Furthermore, the hosts have not been organized at back. They have conceded a goal or more in each of their past eight games here, and have kept a clean sheet just once this term as well.
In addition, the visitors have had their scoring boots on in two of their last three trips to this stadium. Taking into account that their previous h2h encounter here also witnessed both teams contribute to the scorecards, expect Darmstadt to find the back of the net along with the hosts this week.
