Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Holstein Kiel and Schalke 04 square off against each other at Holstein-Stadion in the 2. Bundesliga derby. Kiel did well to make it to the promotion playoffs last season, but Koln eventually proved to be a big catch for them in the double-header. Die Storche continue to struggle in the new campaign, with the team suffering a heavy 3-0 loss to St. Pauli in their opener.
Head coach Ole Werner should opt to make changes to the starting XI, with all Lorenz, Mees, and Fridjonsson pushing for a start. Defender Marco Komenda is likely to miss the game through injury. Die Knappen, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to HSV, but they are surely capable of beating Holstein Kiel on Matchday 2. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Simon Terodde, who opened his goal-scoring account at the weekend.
