- Osnabruck have only lost one of their last seven matches against Holstein Kiel.
- Holstein Kiel have dropped points in ten of their 16 away games this season.
- Both teams scored and over 2.5 goals were produced in three of the last five meetings between these two clubs.
Osnabruck earned a point in midweek that could prove vital in their bid to avoid the drop, as they drew 1-1 away at Hamburg. Holstein Kiel put the final nail in Dynamo Dresden’s coffin on Thursday evening, claiming a 2-0 win against the divisions bottom club.
Sunday’s hosts have only lost one of their last seven matches against Holstein Kiel, dating back to 2014 when both sides plied their trade in the third tier of German football. Back in December Osnabruck claimed a 4-2 win at Holstein Kiel but as things stand its Sunday’s visitors that are safe from the threat of relegation.
Our prediction for a double chance bet on the hosts this weekend is based on a few key aspects, one of which is the fact that Osnabruck need the points more than their guests. A win for the hosts could guarantee they finish above the bottom three, while Holstein Kiel are out of the playoff race and are just competing for a top-five finish.
However, the hosts are without a win in their last four matches, three of which have ended in draws, and with that in mind, we have backed a final scoreline of 2-2 this weekend. Both teams have scored and over 2.5 goals have been produced in three of the last five meetings between these two clubs as well as in five of Holstein Kiel’s last six league games, so you can see why we’ve predicted goals this Sunday.
