Magdeburg vs Holstein Kiel
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 10th February 2019
Kick-off at 12.30 UK/ 13.30 CET
Venue: MDCC-Arena (Magdeburg).
As we start the business end of the league, it’s time that teams start going all in for results. A bad stretch of games in this phase, or complacency, could badly affect all the hard work they have put in the season long.
For the Storks, the objective is to get promoted to the top division. They are two points away from holding down a position that ensures a trip upwards. The fact that they are on the road for this game might be a little daunting to accept, but hereon fixtures would be tough, and they cannot just rely on home games.
For Der Club, it’s survival. They have no option but to take matters into their own hands. They are hanging above the relegation line by a point, and if they are wise enough, the team will sense the danger brimming from below.

Magdeburg vs Holstein Kiel Prediction
Games between these teams have always been low goal-scoring in nature. In fact, every single time these two met at this stadium, the number of goals has not exceeded three in number. Going on, Die Storche holds the upper hand in this fixture, owing to their higher standing in the league table, and their domination in the h2h games for the last decade.
In addition, most wins between these teams have been for a single-goal margin, and Michael Oenning’s men have been finding it hard to score goals in official games. And most importantly, 1-0 has been the most repeated scoreline in their h2h history.
Taking into account all these observations, I expect the visitors to record a 0-1 victory over Der Club.
