Arminia Bielefeld vs FC Heidenheim Prediction
Contrary to popular trends, Bielefeld is a team that consistently struggles at home. That has been prominent especially in the last five matches. Disregarding a hard-fought and low-scoring draw, Bielefeld has a 100% losing record in the last two months at home. Also, no team conceded more goals at home, than Arminia. Coupled with that, chain them with a handicap disadvantage and Heidenheim will easily take the win.
Heidenheim may perform well away from home, but those outings have never been perfect. One glaring weakness on Heidenheim’s side is their inability to keep clean sheets on the road. They conceded at least a goal in their last 11 away games in a row, and in 20 of their last 22 matches away from home. Bielefeld will take advantage of this stat and get on the scoresheet this weekend.
