THE PREDICTION

Holstein Kiel have the upper hand in this play-off tie after a 1-0 win in the first leg on Wednesday. The best defence in Bundesliga 2 this season gave little away in a game of few chances, and they will try to do the same again in this second leg. Ole Werner’s men have kept clean sheets in five of their last seven home games, and he has first-choice midfield pairing Alexander Muhling and Jonas Meffert back from suspension for this one. Koln struggled for goals for much of last season, with only two teams finding the net less often in the Bundesliga, and have failed to score in three of their last four away outings. All things considered, under 2.5 goals looks the best bet here.
