Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Bochum will be aiming to build on a thrilling 3-0 win over Fortuna Dusseldorf when they take on Holstein Kiel in the 2. Bundesliga derby. Thomas Reis’ men quickly bounced back from a 2-0 loss to Hamburger SV, with the team retaining top position in the standings, but they can’t afford any complacency in the season finale. Midfielder Danny Blum remains sidelined through suspension, while Soma Novothny is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute in the triumph over Fortuna Dusseldorf.
Die Storche, on the other hand, aim to regain their spot in top three. Holstein Kiel did well to hold HSV to a 1-1 draw in their last away game, and, taking everything into account, share of spoils is on the cards at Vonovia Ruhrstadion. Kiel boss Ole Werner is likely to stick to the 4-5-1 formation.
