THE PREDICTION

Three defeats in a row have left Darmstadt 98 uncomfortably close to the relegation zone, and it is now seven defeats in 10 league games for the Lilies. Holstein Kiel have only collected one more point in their last three, which has seen them drop from first to fourth in the table. That said, they are still unbeaten on the road this season, and this is a team who knocked Bayern Munich out of the cup a couple of weeks ago. Kiel have not won on their three previous visits to the Bollenfalltor in the second tier, but they should be expected to get back to winning ways on Sunday.
