Schalke vs Holstein Kiel Predictions and Top Betting Tips
Schalke vs Holstein Kiel will be an interesting game and we have high expectations. Here are our predictions.
Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
We expect a high scoreline in this game. Schalke suffered a surprising defeat in the previous round and we expect them to pick up speed with this game. Schalke are one of the top teams in this league and they impressed with their attack at the start. We expect at least a couple of goals from them and we also expect some from Holstein, who have been quite impressive themselves.
Match Result Prediction: Schalke to Win
Schalke cannot afford another defeat at the start of the new season and definitely not in front of their own crowd. They lost twice since the start and this time, we expect them to be far stronger. They are an impressive home side and proved it against Kaiserslautern in round 2. Holstein Kiel have been quite impressive too but they lost to Magdeburg last round, conceding 4 goals.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Schalke
This should be a close and competitive match based on the characteristics and performances of the two teams. But we expect Schalke to find the win here. When we compare the Schalke vs Holstein Kiel line ups, we think that the home side definitely has an advantage, both in strength and fans. They will be strong in this game.
Schalke vs Holstein Kiel Team Previews
Schalke failed to survive even a single season in the Bundesliga before getting relegated and they are back in the lower tier again. There seem to be huge problems in defense which may cost them the promotion this season. Nevertheless, we definitely think that Schalke will be one of the main contenders sooner or later.
Holstein Kiel Preview
Holstein Kiel had their moments last season and for a while, they were one of the best teams. In the new season, we think that Holstein Kiel will be a lot stronger, based on the first few matches they played. They suffered a massive defeat to Magdeburg but overall, their attack seems to be in shape and the only problem is the defense.
