Match: Wolfsburg vs Holstein Kiel
Competition: Germany – 1.Bundesliga Play-Offs
Time/Date: 21:30h / 17 May 2018
Venue: Volkswagen Arena
Wolfsburg secured this playoff after a win with 4:0 over already relegated Cologne in last round. They have shown some improvement up front, while Wolfsburg have struggled lately without Daniel Divadi and surely we have to take in count that Cologne played without motivation and intense.
Kiel where was promoted from third tier last summer and they’ve already are involved in playoffs for 1.Bundesliga and have been red hot in 2.Bundesliga with the best attack in the league. But their manager plus some of the star players already seal their departures for next season with some other problems like their stadium doesn’t have a license for games like this one, will maybe demotivate them.
Sebastian Jung (Calf Problems), Riechedly Bazoer (Knock), Admir Mehmedi (Torn ligament), Daniel Didavi (Achilles tendon problems), Paul Jaeckel (Stretched ligament), Paul Verhaegh (Head injury), Marcel Tisserand (torn tendon), Ignacio Camacho (Muscle fibre), Victor Osimhen (Shoulder injury)
They have been played once Club Friendly where Wolfsburg won with 2:1.
Expect to be game with high intensity and lots of goals-chances, but at the end Wolfsburg have more quality and I expect a win for them.
