Holstein Kiel Preview – Entertainment guaranteed at Holstein-Stadion?

Now four games without a win at this level, Holstein Kiel (8th – W9 D8 L9, GF40 GA40) must wonder how that is the case after squandering a two-goal lead at Jahn Regensburg last Sunday to draw 2-2. Two goals conceded in the final 15 minutes, the last of which occurring one minute into additional time, ensured their winless run lingers whilst simultaneously damaging any faint hopes of making up ground on the promotion places.

Ten points now separate Kiel from third-place and the promotion play-off, which so happens to be occupied by Sunday’s opponents. Victory over Stuttgart would reignite a glimmer of hope, providing some much-needed incentive perhaps. Anything less would see them battling for little more than minor placings in the closing stages of the campaign, one which has stuck to a rigid pattern thus far.

Six of their nine league wins this season were earned away from home. Their points-per-game average dropping from 1.50 to 1.17 at their Holstein-Stadion where, remarkably, there hasn’t been a single clean sheet for the home side. 11 of 12 games finished with both teams on the scoresheet, suggesting we can rely on goals even if we can’t necessarily retain complete faith in the hosts, who have one win from the last seven (W1 D3 L3) at their own ground.


Holstein-Kiel & Both To Score




VfB Stuttgart Preview – Away struggles show no sign of abating?

Despite succumbing to a last-gasp defeat on their seasonal reappearance last Sunday, stretching their 2. Bundesliga run without a win to three, Stuttgart (3rd – W13 D6 L7, GF42 GA30) can consider themselves fortunate. That is because all the sides around them also encountered issues, therefore limiting the damage caused by a disappointing 2-1 loss suffered away to third-bottom Wehen, whose 93rd minute penalty decided the contest.

They may not always be so lucky, though, and so any further slip ups could prove costly in a tight promotion race (goal difference being all that separates them from second spot and automatic promotion) where little more than a handful of games remain. Results on the road have so far left a lot to be desired however, securing maximum points less than 25% of the time (W3 D5 L5) in said matches this season.

Lose at Kiel on Sunday, to a team who inflicted a surprise 1-0 defeat on them in the reverse fixture, would be their third in succession away from home having fallen at Greuther Furth (2-0) and now Wehen more recently. The Swabians recording a meagre one away win across their previous seven such games (W1 D3 L3) – that a narrow 1-0 scoreline in Bochum – scoring no more than a single goal in seven of the last eight.

Holstein Kiel Vs VfB Stuttgart Betting Advice

For the second straight week, Stuttgart approach an away fixture – something which hasn’t been their forte all season – as clear favourites. Three wins from thirteen away games is a dismal return, with only one away win across their most recent seven trips serious cause for concern. Therefore Kiel, who have avoided losing in eight of twelve home games this season, are worthy of consideration in the Double Chance market (4/5 Boylesports).

Holstein-Kiel Vs VfB Stuttgart Key Facts

  • Eleven of the twelve league games in which Holstein-Kiel hosted this season finished with both teams scoring, with six featuring at least three goals.
  • Away wins have been rare for Stuttgart this season (W3 D5 L5), in particular across their last seven said matches (W1 D3 L3).
  • Only a second ever meeting at this level between the two clubs, after Holstein-Kiel won 1-0 at Stuttgart’s Mercedes-Benz Arena in October.


Instead, simply back Both Teams To Score (1/2 Bet365). Even at slim odds, the 92% success rate with which this bet has landed in Kiel’s home games this season – with Stuttgart’s away games at 62% for this particular bet – is simply too good to ignore. Especially with both teams desperately needing to win.
