Holstein Kiel vs Heidenheim
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 16 March 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Holstein-Stadion (Kiel).

Holstein Kiel is going to face Heidenheim in the 27th round of the German 2. Bundesliga on Friday afternoon. Home side is looking to remain on the third position, while the visitors want to stay clear of the danger zone.

Holstein Kiel are one of the most pleasant surprises this season. They came from the 3. Bundesliga, and in their first attempt, they are challenging the promotion spot. They have been playing magnificently in the first half of the campaign, but lately their form declined. Luckily for them, Nurnberg are also in a bad run and the hosts could still challenge for the position number 2. They have been defeated only five times this season, while Marvin Ducksch and the lads have been the most efficient team in the competition. They suffered only one defeat in front of their fans, however they have played six draws at their pitch. If they manage to stabilize the form, they could find their place at least in the promotion playoffs.

Away side is sneaking around the middle of the table, but they are not still safe from relegation. They are four points ahead of the nearest spot below the red line and in the last five matches they have booked only one win. Frank Schmidt’s side has been very good in front of the oppositions’ goal, but their defensive work is the worst in the league. Heidenheim celebrated only two wins when playing away from home and in the last five matches they’ve picked up three points. They need to remain focused in order not to slip down to the danger zone.

Holstein Kiel v Heidenheim: Head-to-head

These two sides have never played a draw match, and currently Heidenheim have booked one win more than their rivals. They were very productive in the last two clashes, especially in the last one where we saw eight goals.

Holstein Kiel v Heidenheim: Prediction

The hosts are favourites in this clash and they should be able to pick up a win and continue their promotion battle.

When the best attacking side is facing the worst defensive line in the league, it is natural to expect at least three goals in this match.
