• Both teams have scored in each of Holstein Kiel’s last six matches.
  • Both teams have scored in four of Wehen’s last six matches.
  • Wehen have lost eight of their 15 away games this season.
  • Holstein Kiel have scored three or more goals in their last two games against Wehen.

Holstein Kiel sit safely in mid-table

Holstein Kiel returned from Hamburg with a point following a 3-3 draw on Monday night and a win on Saturday could move them into the top six, if results elsewhere go in their favour. Wehen suffered a fourth straight defeat last weekend, going down 3-2 against bottom of the table Dynamo Dresden, and are now 5pts adrift from safety.

Holstein Kiel have had the better of Wehen over the years, picking up four wins, five draws and suffering just two defeats from the pairs’ last 11 encounters. Back in November, Holstein Kiel scored six times against Wehen and conceded three goals in an action-packed nine-goal thriller at the BRITA-Arena.

Wehen are in the thick of a relegation battle

The visitors are now on equal points with bottom side Dynamo Dresden and occupy one of the automatic relegation places heading into Saturday’s clash. Wehen have lost eight of their 15 away games this season and will be expecting a tough 90-minutes at Holstein Kiel, as the hosts have picked up points in nine of their 14 home games.

We’re predicting that both teams will score this weekend as 93% of Holstein Kiel’s home matches have ended with both teams on the scoreboard, as have 53% of Wehen’s away trips, and three of the duos’ last five matches against one another have also seen both teams score. The hosts have scored three goals in two of their last four matches and the visitors have conceded three goals in each of their last two outings, so you can see why we have predicted a final scoreline of 3-1 in favour of the Holstein Kiel.

The visitors hope to end their losing streak

The hosts need to produce more wins at home and where better to start than a side in the midst of a four-game losing streak that have already lost eight times on the road and has conceded six goals in their last two league games. Holstein Kiel look set to add to Wehen’s woes this weekend but we can see both teams getting on the scoreboard a match that should provide plenty of goalmouth action.
