Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
All eyes will be on Fritz Walter Stadion when Kaiserslautern and Hamburger SV face each other in a highly-anticipated 2. Bundesliga game. The Red Devils are on a five-game winless run ahead of Saturday’s clash, and, as a result, they have slim promotion chances. Since Kaiserslautern failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to Braunschweig at the weekend, home win should not be considered. Nicolai Rapp has joined the likes of Jonas Weyand, Aaron Basenach, and Aaron Opoku in the recovery room, while Hikmet Ciftci is a major doubt.
Die Rothosen, on the other hand, aim to build on a thrilling 6-1 win over Hannover. Even though HSV are on a four-game winless run on the road, away win should be considered as HSV are eager to retain their spot in top two. As for the visiting side, defender Mario Vuskovic is banned for the match, while both Ogechika Heil and Moritz Heyer should miss out through illness.
