Holstein Kiel vs Nurnberg
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Monday, 23 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK
Venue: Holstein-Stadion (Kiel)
Holsten Kiel look to break into the 2. Bundesliga top 2 as they host 2nd placed Nuernberg for their Matchday 31 clash on Friday evening in great form, after bagging three draws and four wins in their last seven outings – including a great 0-4 win in Dresden last week. They now sit just two points behind the rivals and this serves a great opportunity to do so.
Nuernberg also come into the match on the back of a five-game unbeaten streak but their 1-1 draw at Ingolstadt has seen their woes on the road on display, as Michael Kollner’s men failed to earn an away win since January. They’ve been a tough side to beat and earned four draws in five trips with just a single loss along the way but it’s questionable if this will be enough ahead of the trip to Holstein-Stadion.
The Storks have been very good in the attacking third in front of the home crowd and we’ll now surely see them very motivated to build on such records as well as the 2-2 thriller at Max-Morlock-Stadion. They have high hopes to secure the promotion to the Bundesliga in their first second-tier campaign and the points here could come in crucial.
