Holstein Kiel vs VfB Stuttgart Prediction & Match Preview

Holstein Kiel vs VfB Stuttgart
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 24 May 2020
Kick-Off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Holstein-Stadion (Kiel).

Kiel is fresh from a second draw on the trot, the latest of which was against Regensburg. The team is struggling to get three points in the last four match days. With 9 wins and defeats each, they are 8th in the points table. A win could get them into the top five depending on the results of others. This four-game winless run came after a dream run of 3 wins on the trot.

Stuttgart’s dream of getting back to the top tier is hanging by the thread. They are under constant pressure from teams below them for the playoff spot.

Both Hamburger and Stuttgart are equal on points but with a better goal difference, the latter could guarantee a direct promotion.

The recent results have backfired for the visitors who have only one win in their last 10 trips. They have only one win in their last 9 away games in the league which came against Bochum.

But the defeat to Wehen who are in the relegation zone was a shock to many of their supporters.

Holstein Kiel vs VfB Stuttgart: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • In 2 head to head games, both teams have a win each.
  • Both of those wins came at the home of the opposition.
  • In the only meetings at this venue, the visitors won with a score of 1-2.

Holstein Kiel vs VfB Stuttgart: Prediction

Kiel has no clear advantage of playing at home since they failed to win three recent games here. So I do not think they can win against a team way above them in terms of points. But on the other hand, the visitors have conceded goals to far inferior opposition than this.

In the majority of the matches that Stuttgart played the score had more than 2.5 goals. They have scored 42 goals so far and conceded 30 as well. Similarly, the hosts are scoring an average of 1.5 goals per game and conceded all they have scored too. So I am backing both teams to score and a score to have over 2.5 goals at ninety minutes.

Holstein Kiel vs VfB Stuttgart: Betting Tips

  • Both teams to score @ 1.53 (6/11).
