Erzgebirge Aue vs Heidenheim Prediction & Match Preview

Erzgebirge Aue vs Heidenheim
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 12th April 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Sparkassen-Erzgebirgsstadion (Aue).

Heidenheim gave the performance of a lifetime against the best team in Germany, just the last match-day. In the DFB Pokal fixture, despite being on the road, Heidenheim put four goals past the reigning Bundesliga champions. Till the 84th minute, the scores were tied at 4-4, and Robert Lewandowski needed to put in a penalty kick, to tip the scales in Bayern’s favor.

With six games remaining in the competition, Aue has just a five-point surplus over the cut-off, and Sandhausen, the team just below them in the table, is in the form of their season. While Aue lost the last three league fixtures in a row, Sandhausen returned three wins and a draw from the last four.

Erzgebirge Aue vs Heidenheim Prediction

Heidenheim is just five points off a playoff spot, and with six games remaining in the competition, is on a race to get their name in the post-season mix. Also, they have lost just seven fixtures in the tournament so far, while the best team, and the current league-topper, lost six.

Going on, Heidenheim was unbeaten in 25 of their last 30 matches, where the last two losses came against Bayern and Koln – absolute beasts. On the road, they were unvanquished in 16 of their last 20 attempts as well. On the other hand, Aue lost their last three match-ups on the trot and was winless in four of their last five at home.

Aue is fighting relegation and is taking on a Bundesliga-hopeful at this crunch time. Expect Heidenheim to avoid a loss at any cost.

Furthermore, Aue conceded two or more in their last three games and a total of 10 in these matches. Meanwhile, Heidenheim is on a roll, after scoring four against Bayern in their last away tie. Importantly, Aue has never kept a clean sheet at this venue against this opponent, and only once has Aue won at home in their h2h matches.

Expect at least two goals by Heidenheim, who’d be eager to ensure that they take part in the playoffs.
