Team News: Hamburg
Ewerton (Medial Collateral Ligament Injury) and Khaled Narey (Knee Injury) won’t be able to feature for Hamburg gaffer Dieter Hecking.
Team News: Holstein Kiel
Kiel boss Ole Werner has a number of players out of action. Timon Weiner (Tear in a joint capsule), Michael Eberwein (Ankle Surgery) and Janni Serra (Hamstring Injury) will not be playing here.
It looks to us that Hamburg will probably see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities. However, Holstein Kiel may well struggle to make a breakthrough but do we see them being dangerous for periods. We therefore think that it’s going to be a pretty comfortable 3-1 victory for Hamburg at full-time.
