FC Heidenheim vs Arminia Bielefeld Prediction
The teams have previously met during the last christmas season and it has been a year since they have locked horns. Things have changed for both teams and Bielefeld has stepped up their form in the new season.
Heidenheim are still playing it safe within the top five but Arminia is a strong contingent to get promoted to the Bundesliga. Four of their last five h2h clashes ended in a draw showing the rivals are equally strong.
However, currently Bielefeld has the advantage with their dominance in the league. Their previous encounter with Karlsruher ended in a 2-2 draw which marked the fifth winless game in a row.
Meanwhile, Heidenheim did manage to take all three points from Hamburger SV on the road with a 0-1 scoreline. It was only the third win in a span of recent five matches in the campaign.
Even so, Frank Schmidt has steered his boys to a good form at home. Evidently, they have won three home matches in a row against lower placed teams. Since Bielefeld is not a weaker team, the host will have more work to do at Voith Arena.
In addition to that, Bielefeld is unbeaten in their eight league trips on the road so far. Also, they are on an invincible run on the road. As such, it is not sure whether Heidenheim can utilize their home ground advantage in the game to good use.
Hence, it is safer to go with a double chance since these teams have a history.
