Holstein Kiel is putting up a strong, hard fight at the top of the leaderboard, and their goal is to get access. Because of this, it needs to be more regular, as this is the key to good campaigns. If everything goes well and goes as planned, they’ll be able to succeed in their goals. However, for this to happen it will have to work hard in search of good results. That is precisely why they come to this match in order to score, preferably with a victory.
Confirmed Lineup: Ioannis Gelios, Mikkel Kirkeskov, Jannik Dehm, Simon Lorenz, Hauke Wahl, Fin Bartels, Jae-Sung Lee, Jonas Meffert, Alexander Mühling, Fabian Reese, Janni Serra.
Coach: O. Werner.
