Union Berlin take on the visitors Holstein Kiel at “Stadion An der Alten Forsterei” in the gameweek two of the 2. Bundesliga. The match will be played in Berlin on Friday, August 4th.
Taking into account last season’s and friendly summer clashes, Union Berlin gained eight victories in a row, having scored 34 goals for and only five goals against. Last season the side from the German capital didn’t run six points for promotion to the elite division and occupied the fourth place in the 2. Bundesliga table. Having broken Ingolstadt with 1:0 scoreline on the road in the first round, “Eiserne” showed that they determined to make couple steps forward on their pace to the elite division.

Last season Holstein Kiel settled on the second position in the 3. Liga standings with 67 points taken and 59-25 goal difference after 38 matchdays which allowed them to promote to the 2. Bundesliga. Taking into consideration last season’s and control encounters, the side has not been defeated since the 10th of March across 19 consecutive fights recording 13 triumphs and six draws in them. In the 2. Bundesliga Holstein Kiel started from the tough 2:2 draw against Sandhausen.
Last season Union Berlin demonstrated solid football and they also succeeded in the first round of the new season’s 2. Bundesliga. The same can be said about Holstein Kiel. However, bearing in mind the difference between leagues, I believe that the visitors are not strong enough to pick up points in their head-to-head against one of the 2. Bundesliga leaders.
Prediction for the match: Union Berlin to win.
