Nurnberg vs Holstein Kiel Prediction
It has not been the brightest season for Nurnberg as the host suffered their fourth loss in a span of five matches after their recent 3-1 encounter with Stuttgart on the road.
Along with that, their poor form at home creates more headache for Jens Keller. The Legend has registered only one win from their 8 home matches so far.
Besides that, the host has lost the last two home matches in series and are winless in the last five league fixtures.
As such, the home ground is not as much of a strong suit for the Legends. In addition to that they will be hosting a team above them in the table.
Meanwhile, Holstein Kiel has marked four each wins and losses in their eight away fixtures until now. However, they have won four of the last five matches on the road.
Apart from that, Kiel will be coming on the back of a 2-4 loss on the road to the likes of Osnabruck in their previous league clash.
Hence, it is safer to go with a double chance in the game favouring the visitor since they are in better form in the league currently. Also, expect a high scoring affair in the game.
