Holstein Kiel will welcome Hansa Rostock to Holstein-Stadion for a matchday 9 fixture in Germany 2. Bundesliga. The last meeting on 6th May 2017 ended in a Holstein Kiel 2-1 win. Both sides have met eight times in the most recent seasons. Holstein Kiel has won 4 matches, and Hansa Rostock triumphed in 1. Recent outings average 2.38 goals, while both teams score 38% of the time.
Holstein Kiel's latest fixture against Paderborn ended in an away 2-1 win. Holstein Kiel was very dangerous in attack, having attempted six shots on target. Holstein Kiel was much better than Paderborn in the second half and scored in the 51st and 78th minute.
Hansa Rostock's recent game against Schalke 04 ended in a home 0-2 loss. Die Hansa had plenty of possession, but not so much in the final third of the pitch.
So far, Holstein Kiel plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.25 points per away game on average compared to 0.60 points at home. Although Holstein Kiel is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 20% home clean sheets.
Hansa Rostock has picked up 6 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Die Ostseestädter has collected 1.40 points on average per away game, compared to 0.75 at home.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Holstein Kiel lost the previous game at home but still have a lot of advantage over their opponent. They have won 20% of home games which gives them plenty of confidence for the upcoming fixture.
Die Hansa got the three points in their previous away games but are still off their best. Their away record does not convince me that they have what it takes to avoid defeat on Saturday.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Holstein Kiel wins on average 0.60 points per home game, compared to 1.40 points per away game for Hansa Rostock. My prediction is Holstein Kiel to win.
