Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
All eyes will be on Volksparkstadion when Hamburger SV and Holstein Kiel take on each other in the 2. Bundesliga derby. HSV aim to bounce back from a heart-breaking 1-0 loss to their local rivals St. Pauli, with the team eyeing their eighth home win of the process. As always, a man to watch in the home team will be Simon Terodde, who has netted 19 goals in the German second tier so far this term.
Defender Tim Leibold, on the other hand, misses the game through suspension. Holstein Kiel aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Aue, but beating HSV on the road is easier said than done. The two promotion-chasing sides seem to be evenly-matched, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. In their last meeting in the 2. Bundesliga the two sides shared the spoils. Kiel boss Ole Werner should stick to the 4-5-1 formation, with Korea international Jae-Sung Lee up front.
