Team News: Holstein Kiel
Stefan Thesker (Achilles tendon rupture), Janni Serra (Torn Muscle Fibre) and Ioannis Gelios (Corona virus) won’t be playing for Kiel gaffer Ole Werner.
Team News: Regensburg
From a largely healthy group, there is just the sole fitness worry for the Regensburg manager Mersad Selimbegović to be concerned about. Sebastian Nachreiner (Torn Muscle Fibre) won’t be in action.
In our view, Regensburg will surely be able to score a goal against this Holstein Kiel lineup, however that probably shouldn’t be enough to avoid defeat.
We think that it’s going to be a 2-1 winning score for Holstein Kiel by the conclusion of the game. It will be interesting to see how this one goes.
