🗞️ Team News: Holstein Kiel
The Holstein Kiel manager Marcel Rapp has zero fitness concerns at all coming into this clash thanks to a fully injury-free squad available to select from.
It looks as if Holstein Kiel may well use the 4-2-3-1 system with Thomas Daehne, Timo Becker, Hauke Wahl, Stefan Thesker, Mikkel Kirkeskov, Philipp Sander, Alexander Muehling, Fin Bartels, Lewis Holtby, Fabian Reese and Steven Skrzybski.
📋 Team News: St. Pauli
St. Pauli manager Fabian Hürzeler has not got a full squad to pick from. Igor Matanovic (Shoulder Injury), Etienne Amenyido (Adductor problems), Christopher Avevor (Ankle Injury), David Nemeth (Pubitis) and Maurides (Meniscal Injury) are those who can’t be considered.
We are inclined to think that St. Pauli seem likely to elect for a 3-4-3 lineup by sending out Nikola Vasilj, Jakov Medic, Eric Smith, Karol Mets, Manolis Saliakas, Jackson Irvine, Marcel Hartel, Leart Paqarada, Oladapo Afolayan, Lukas Daschner and Elias Saad.
We’re thinking that St. Pauli are likely to convert a lot of goal-scoring opportunities.
In contrast, Holstein Kiel could well struggle to find the back of the net, although we do think that it’s probable they’ll be pulling one back during this clash.
We’re therefore anticipating a comfortable 1-3 margin for St. Pauli when the full-time whistle blows.
