Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Stuttgart will be looking to make amends for an unlucky loss to Wehen Wiesbaden when they take on Holstein Kiel on Sunday afternoon. Die Schwaben failed to turn their dominance into goals in their first game after the coronavirus break, and it is no wonder they are seen as favourites to win Sunday’s clash. Stuttgart are determined to return to the German top flight, but they will have to improve offensively if they are to meet the goal.
Die Schwaben aim to put an end to their three-game winless run in the 2. Bundesliga, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach against Holstein Kiel. Die Storche, on the other hand, failed to win the previous four league fixtures, which is probably the main reason why away win should be considered. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be experienced forward Mario Gomez.
