Heidenheim vs Erzgebirge Aue Prediction

Schmidt’s men were held to a goalless draw on the road the last match-day, against St. Pauli. The fact that the guests missed a penalty was the highlight of the fixture. Meanwhile, the Violets lost 1-3 at home the prior game week, against Darmstadt.

The home team did score the first goal. However, the guests then proceeded to score one goal after the other to complete the 1-3 scorecard. Two of those goals by the visitors had come in the final 25 minutes. 

At present, the upper hand goes to Schmidt’s men. They were unbeaten in 15 of their past 18 overall games, and are on a long 13-fixture unbeaten run at home, that stretches back to the first week of October. In fact, in the prior twelve-month period, Schmidt’s men have lost just two times.

They have also scored two or more goals in six of the former eight appearances at this stadium, and have won ten of the preceding thirteen fixtures here. On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in ten of their last thirteen overall match-ups, and are on a winless run of fifteen fixtures away from home – which spans back to August of 2019.

Moreover, Schmidt’s men recorded six of the past seven h2h wins, and most importantly, they have a 100% unbeaten record at this stadium against this rival. And finally, the Violets have failed to keep a clean sheet in the previous ten h2h matches, and the last and only time they kept a clean sheet at this ground was back in 2010.

Taking into account all these observations, it’s concluded that Heidenheim are on a course to record a convincing win this Sunday.
