Hamburg SV and Holstein Kiel meet Monday morning in a German Bundesliga 2 soccer match at the Volksparkstadion.
Hamburg SV have won just two of their last eight matches, but one of those victories came in their most recent effort against Wehen. In the victory, Hamburg SV controlled the ball for 68 percent of the match while getting seven shots on goal. Hamburg SV now has a chance to win back-to-back matches for the first time since early February. Hamburg SV has scored at least two goals in four of its last five matches. Sonny Kittel leads with 11 goals, Lukas Hinterseer has nine goals and Tim Leibold has nine assists.
Holstein Kiel has won just one of its last seven matches and is coming off back-to-back losses. In its most recent effort, Holstein Kiel lost a 1-2 contest against Arminia Bielefeld where they allowed a late goal and got only three shots on goal while allowing eight shots on goal. A real frustrating effort from Holstein Kiel, and they’ve now been held to one or less goals in five of their last seven matches. However, Holstein Kiel hasn’t lost three straight matches yet this season. Lee Jae-Sung leads Holstein Kiel with eight goals, Emmanuel Iyoha has seven goals and Salih Ozcan has six assists.
Holstein Kiel are 3-0-1 in their last four meetings against Hamburg SV with the last meeting back in November being a 1-1 draw. Hamburg SV haven’t won a game against Holstein Kiel since March of 2016. Four of the last five meetings have produced at least three goals.
The plus money with Holstein Kiel isn't looking too bad given the history between these two teams, but it's hard to back a team that's struggling to find offense and has won just one of its last seven matches. Hamburg SV looked sharp its last time out and is in quite a groove offensively that makes you believe they can string more wins together moving forward. Because Hamburg SV is scoring at least two goals on average these days, I'm leaning toward the over in this matchup.
Give me the over 2.5 goals.
