Heidenheim vs Darmstadt
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 20 September 2019
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Voith-Arena (Heidenheim).
Heidenheim picked up what was only their second win of the campaign by slotting three goals past their helpless foes Holstein Kiel last week, that too with a clean sheet intact. Despite getting off to a winning start in their opening game, the squad were hit by a sharp decline in form soon after which saw them go four fixtures without tasting success.
On the other hand, Darmstadt have registered a win just once in their last six games and have also lost without getting their names on the scoresheet twice already. The visitors featured in a six-goal thriller against Nurnberg in their most recent clash at home which saw both teams score three goals apiece.
The away side are yet to register a win on the road this season and will have to put in the extra effort if they are to salvage at least a point in this one.

Heidenheim vs Darmstadt Prediction
The home team have been exhibiting signs of resurgence in their recent games, and the fact that have not been at the losing end in their last two clashes stands a testament to it.
Furthermore, the hosts have found the back of the net five times in their clashes on home soil, three of which came in their most recent fixture. The visiting cavalry are on a dismal streak, to say the least, and have scored just one goal so far in their outings, apart from failing to clinch the victory.
Taking into account that they have emerged victoriously just once in their previous seven visits to this venue as well, Heidenheim are the odds on favorites to take all three points on Friday.
Additionally, the visitors have been losing without finding the back of the net in their last two trips on the road in a running. Considering that the home team opened the scoring last week in their victory of Kiel as well, count on Heidenheim to be the ones to break the deadlock.
