FC Koln vs Holstein Kiel, Bundesliga Relegation, 26.05.2021

Koln will host Holstein Kiel at the RheinEnergie in the first leg of the Bundesliga relegation playoff. They escaped automatic relegation from the German Bundesliga with a 1-0 victory over Schalke on Saturday. After losing 3-2 in their final two games of the season, Holstein settled for third place and a pending playoff battle. Holstein Kiel, are vying for promotion to Germany’s top flight and must defeat their opponents on aggregate. This is going to be a close match, and we will look at Fezbet bookie review prices for our betting tips in this preview.

FC KOLN

Koln finished the regular season 16th, two points outside the relegation zone. Sebastiaan Bornauw’s late header against Schalke on the final weekend of the regular Bundesliga season was the difference between the two sides, and it proved crucial for Koln. They had eight victories, nine draws, and 17 losses, scoring 34 goals while conceding 60. Taking a closer look at those stats, the hosts must dramatically strengthen their backline if they are to prevent the fall. They now have a shot to secure their place in the top flight for next season if they do well in this playoff.

HOLSTEIN KIEL

Holstein Kiel has a fantastic chance to make it to the German Bundesliga to share in the rewards of playing in one of Europe’s most prestigious leagues. The visitors have never played in the Bundesliga, and their most recent playoff run in 2018 ended in a 4-1 aggregate loss to Wolfsburg. They must find a way past FC Koln, beginning with this visit. Holstein Kiel lost out on automatic promotion and still have themselves to blame, but they have one more opportunity due to the extra two games applied to the end of the season

FC KOLN VS HOLSTEIN KIEL BETTING PREDICTIONS

So far, the two sides have only met twice, with Koln winning their latest game, although their first meeting resulted in a 1-1 draw. Koln’s inconsistent defending was one of the issues boss Friedhelm Funkel struggled to address, particularly after their late-season comeback. They’ve only managed one clean sheet in their last eight home games, and they’ve given up eight goals in the last four.

Holstein Kiel are coming off a 3-2 home loss to Darmstadt in their last two Bundesliga games. Janni-Luca Serra gave them an early advantage, but they were breached three times in the second half before Fin Bartels pulled one back three minutes from time.
