Holstein Kiel are hoping to win again after their last result, a 0-2 Bundesliga 2 victory versus Würzburger Kickers.
The only name on the scoresheet from Holstein Kiel was Janni Serra (22'). Lars Dietz (75' Own goal) was the scorer for Würzburger Kickers.
Their more recent scorelines really do illustrate the point that things are going according to plan in the Holstein Kiel rearguard. Holstein Kiel have been stingy, resulting in the total number of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their past six clashes standing at 3.
Their prior results show that Holstein Kiel:
- are unbeaten in the league by Greuther Furth in their last 3 matches.
- are undefeated in their last 4 home league matches.
After a losing effort in their last game against Hamburg in Bundesliga 2 competition, Greuther Furth will be hoping to turn things around here.
Khaled Narey (45') scored for Hamburg.
Greuther Furth have had no problems opening up opposition defences leading up to this encounter, having scored 11 goals in their last 6 matches. While their manager Stefan Leitl will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Greuther Fürth have had their own issues at the back, also conceding in 6 of those same outings. We shall soon see if that trend can be continued on here.
Looking at their past form shows that Greuther Furth:
- have not lost to Holstein Kiel in away games against them for the last 2 league games.
- are undefeated in their previous 9 league matches away from home. Impressive, to say the least.
- are without an away win for the past 3 matches in the league.
