Holstein Kiel vs Darmstadt
Germany – DFB Pokal
Date: Tuesday, 2 February 2021
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
The Storks are one of the best teams in the German second division, and are currently placed third in the table. They have conceded the least number of goals so far in the 2.Bundesliga, and need a surplus of just four points to get to the top of the table.
Meanwhile, the Lilies are a rather weak squad from the same league, and their only win in the last six match-days had come against a relegation-battler – Sandhausen.
Going on, Ole Werner’s men also have a great h2h record against this rival in recent years, and they had just defeated them in a league match-up a week back.
Likely, expect Holstein Kiel to progress to the Quarter Final.
Holstein Kiel vs Darmstadt: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two locked horns was one week back, and then the Storks registered a win to nil – and that too on the road.
- They were unbeaten in six of the preceding eight encounters.
- They had scored two or more goals in three of the former five clashes.
- It’s been seven years since the visitors have won at this stadium.
Holstein Kiel vs Darmstadt Prediction
Werner’s men were unbeaten in 19 of their previous 22 overall games, and they had scored two or more goals in nine of the past thirteen fixtures. At home, the last they failed to score was back in February of 2020, and have lost here just twice since June of 2020.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in five of their last six match-ups, and they had lost four of their past six games as well. On the road, they are yet to win a fixture in 2021 too.
Lastly, the Storks also have a good h2h record against this rival over the years.
Considering these observations, expect Holstein Kiel to deliver a winning performance this Tuesday at their home.
