An extremely difficult month for Holstein Kiel continues with the fourth match in the last 10 days. After being beaten 5:0 by Borussia Dortmund in the semi-finals of the DFB Cup on Saturday, they can focus entirely on championship games, where Ole Werner’s team currently is three points behind third place with three games in hand. Their league form has fallen a bit recently, with only one win in the last five matches in the Bundesliga 2, and they also have problems with absences. Today, coach Werner can’t count on Thesker, Kirkeskov, Gelios, and Ignjovski. This is also a huge match for Sandhausen, as with a possible win they have a chance to go to plus 4 points from the danger zone. Their form at home was good recently, but on the road, they couldn’t find the right form with 9 consecutive defeats. I think Sandhausen will give strong resistance and given the exhausted rhythm of Holstein Kiel, I believe they can reach a favorable result in an open match.
