Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Following a massive 5-1 loss to St Pauli, Holstein Kiel will look to get back on course in the 2. Bundesliga when they take on Hertha Berlin in Sunday’s matinee. Kiel produce much better showings at home than on the travels and they are surely capable of making life difficult for the capital club at their Holstein-Stadion. Experienced midfielder Lewis Holtby should be recalled to the starting line-up after finding the net in the last league match, while fellow midfielder Patrick Erras continues to miss out with a broken finger.
Hertha, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 6-4 loss to Magdeburg, with the team beating Braunschweig 3-0 at Olympiastadion, but given their difficulties on the road, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of collecting more than one point from Sunday’s encounter. Goalkeeper Marius Gersbeck is banned for the match, while all Palko Dardai, Pascal Klemens, Ibrahim Maza, and Agustin Rogel are out of contention through injuries.
