Holstein Kiel vs Stuttgart Prediction & Betting tips
Last weekend in the 2nd Bundesliga, after a long interruption due to the corona epidemic, the starting signal was finally given for the continuation of the 2019/2020 season. This weekend, the matches of the 27th game day are on the program, and as is well known, continue in the form of ghost games.
The Kielers last came in Regensburg bottom line, and therefore the storks are stuck in the middle of the table. VfB Stuttgart recently received an unnecessary defeat at Wehen Wiesbaden due to a controversial penalty for the opponent.
Since September of last year, Ole Werner has been looking after the professional team at Holstein Kiel. The previous coach of the second team was promoted when Andre Schubert had to leave the storks quickly after a disappointing start to the season. Ole Werner quickly made the switch at Holstein Kiel and led the team from the table cellar back to safe midfield.
In the last weeks before the long interruption, things didn’t go so well for Kiel, who scored one point from three games. This was achieved during the 25th match day, when the Kiel team had at least one draw in a home game against Fürth after a quick deficit. Previously, the storks had to give up twice in a home game against Heidenheim and then in Hanover.
Due to this weak point yield in late February and early March, Kiel slipped from fifth place to seventh place in the table and the gap to the relegation place increased to a clear ten points.
Last weekend the Kielers wanted to find their way back to success with an away win in Regensburg. For a long time it looked good for the team of Ole Werner, because after goals from Lee and Porath Kiel was in the lead after 2 hours with 2: 0.
Due to lack of focus in the final quarter of an hour, goalkeeper Gelios had to concede two goals, so the bottom line was only one point despite the lead. Holstein Kiel has been without a win for four games and has not won their last two home games. Before the game against VfB Stuttgart, Kiel have a few injury concerns and Serra and Baku will not be available due to injuries.
VfB Stuttgart :
The VfB Stuttgart wants to get back to the football club immediately after relegation from the 1st Bundesliga. During the winter break, those responsible seemed to see this goal in jeopardy when evaluating the first half of the season. For this reason, the Swabians brought with Pellegrino Matarazzo a new trainer. The American previously worked as a co-trainer in Hoffenheim and is now expected to advance with VfB Stuttgart.
Before the well-known long break, the Stuttgart played a total of eight games under the new head coach. The VfB won four wins and two draws, while there were two defeats on the other side. With this result, VfB Stuttgart was second in the table after 45 minutes after a 1-1 draw against leaders Arminia Bielefeld with 45 points.
However, the advantage over the relegation place after this draw was only one point. For this reason, VfB Stuttgart will have to earn points in the coming weeks if they want the direct promotion to work out in the end.
It didn’t go according to plan last weekend when VfB Stuttgart suffered a surprising 1-2 defeat at Wehen Wiesbaden’s first ghost game. The Swabians initially fell behind in Wiesbaden, but made a deserved equalizer with a goal from Nicolas Gonzalez in the 83rd minute.
In added time, however, there was a controversial 911 for the hosts, which ultimately led to a bitter defeat.
Those responsible at VfB Stuttgart did not agree with this penalty at all, and, according to sports director Mislintat, the video referee should not have intervened at all.
The Stuttgart team has now objected to the rating of the game, although the chances of success of this objection are rather slim. However, VfB Stuttgart was rather weak abroad this season and only managed three wins in 13 away games. In Kiel the coach must have got along without the injured Sosa and Awoudja.
