Hamburg vs Holstein Kiel Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Hamburg host Holstein Kiel in the Bundesliga 2 at the Volksparkstadion on Monday. Hamburg are vying for promotion and will see this as a game they have to win.

Hamburg Form


Hamburg currently find themselves third on the table and are battling for promotion. Since the resumption they have been inconsistent with one victory in their last three games.

After a 0-0 draw at home to top of the table Arminia Blielefeld, Hamburg suffered an excruciating 3-2 home defeat to fellow promotion chasers Stuttgart.

Hamburg got things back on track against the relegation threatened Wehen Wiesbaden last time out. It wasn't plain sailing but they managed to scrape a 3-2 victory at the Volksparkstadion.

 With 10 victories from their 14 home matches this season the hosts will be confident of getting all three points.

Hamburg head coach Dieter Hecking looks set to stick with loanee Joel Pohjanpalo as the first choice striker despite Lukas Hintersee being the second top scorer. Since the break Hintersee has yet to start a match.

Midfielder Khaled Narey is still sidelined with a knee injury with a return date uncertain.

After an impressive 3-2 victory over Stuttgart at home, Holstein Kiel suffered a 2-1 defeat at Bochum and most recently a 2-1 home defeat to Arminia Bielefeld.

Holstein Kiel have scored 26 goals in 14 away matches this season.
