Karlsruher SC vs Holstein Kiel Prediction

Karlsruher lost 1-0 on the road the last match-day against Dresden. The defeat continued the winless streak of the team, and have mounted even more pressure on them, in midst of their race to avoid relegation.

Meanwhile, Kiel were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Darmstadt. Despite the dropped points, the result helped the team to extend their streak to nine unbeaten matches from eleven former games. The team was also invincible in seven of their previous eight fixtures on the road.

On the other hand, Karlsruher were winless in 12 of their previous 14 overall official matches, and are also on a three-game losing run. At home, they lost their previous two appearances, and conceded a total of six goals in the process.

Moreover, Karlsruher are a team that just got promoted from the 3.Liga, and considerably lack in experience in comparison to Kiel. In addition, the latter also had won the reverse fixture of this game, and with this being the sole h2h clash in the past two decades, Kiel also hold a 100% winning record.

Taking into account these observations, it’s adjudged that Holstein Kiel are the favorites. It makes sense to back them for a win. However, to increase our chances for returns, we instead will opt for the Double Chance, and to Win Either Half bets.
