Holstein Kiel form and stats

Holstein Kiel, who have the fewest conceded goals (21) in 2. Bundesliga, have collected 20 points from their 2. Bundesliga home games so far after 6-2-3. Hopes of three in a row are alive for Holstein after consecutive victories at their own ground.

In their previous game, the manager O. Werner led his Holstein to a defeat in the 2. Bundesliga match away at Greuther Fürth. The manager is hoping to put things right immediately here at Holstein-Stadion. Before that game, the 1-0 home victory against Wurzburger Kickers.

The hosts are favourites to win this game, with an estimated chance of about 55-60% of that outcome. Earlier Holstein matches with similar probabilities have ended with three wins, zero draws and two defeats (from five games).

Holstein are traveling soon after this match as the DFB Pokal match at Rot-Weiss Essen awaits in four days.

A decent goal production from Holstein Kiel in their home games so far, with 18 goals from 11 league matches. 14 goals have been conceded.

Erzgebirge Aue form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Erzgebirge Aue so far with only 11 points returning home. The records show 3-2-6 (win-draw-lose). Erzgebirge has lost their two previous away games and are eager to kill a negative trend in its infancy.

Gaëtan Bussmann scored in Erzgebirge Aue's previous match, the home game against Bochum that ended 1-0. Preceding that game, the 0-2 loss visiting Heidenheim's place.

As mentioned above, the odds for this match puts the home team as favourites. Perhaps this eases the pressure on the away team, who are capable of producing an upset here on a good day. Looking at earlier matches with similar odds and Erzgebirge playing away, we found six games. Results were one away win, zero draws and five home wins.

Erzgebirge have a decent goal production going in their away games, although not fantastic. In 11 league away games 11 goals have been scored. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 1 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. 16 goals have been conceded by Erzgebirge in these games.

Head 2 Head

This is the result when the teams met earlier this season; Erzgebirge Aue - Holstein Kiel 1-1. As for the last ten games between these two teams, there's four Holstein Kiel victories, four draws and two Erzgebirge Aue wins. Over/under statistics; seven of these games ended with three goals or more, three matches with two goals or less.
