FC Heidenheim vs Erzgebirge Aue
2.Bundesliga – Season 2017/18
Date: Wednesday, 9th August 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
The match which was originally set to be played on July 30 in the opening round of 2. Bundesliga was cancelled due to heavy rain.
Heidenheim and St. Pauli are thus et to play their first round fixture this Wednesday at Voith-Arena as both sides will be hoping to bounce back having suffered defeats in the weekend behind us.
The hosts had an interesting campaign in the last term of 2. Bundesliga which saw the team earning a top six finish at the end of the season.
The team is still led by the long-term manager Frank Schmidt who will celebrate the landmark tenth anniversary on Heidenheim’s bench.
The core of the last year’s squad is still there and the pre-season results were quite promising, but the team failed to do much against recently relegation Bundesliga member Eintracht Braunschweig on Saturday (2-0 defeat on the road).
The story is completely different with Veilchen who are among the main contenders for the drop to the third tier of German football in the next season.
Aue barely saved the second class status last year and they had a dreadful run in pre-season friendlies which is why we were not surprised to see them losing the home fixture to Fortuna Dusseldorf (0-2) last weekend.
Heidenheim vs Erzgebirge Aue: Head to head
The hosts have a better head to head record as they lost only a single of seven meetings with Aue, but that lone win for Veilchen came just in their previous meeting with Heidenheim back in late-January this year (2-1).
Heidenheim vs Erzgebirge Aue: Prediction
This should pretty much be a one-way street from the very first whistle and we are going to back Heidenheim to win the match as the top betting option at the odds of 10/11.
