FC Heidenheim vs Nurnberg Prediction

Heidenheim recorded a 0-1 win on the road the last match-day, against Sandhausen. The win continued the impressive run of the team, and as of now, they are placed just below the playoff zone for the Bundesliga. Do note that they were unbeaten in 13 of their last 15 overall games, and are on an invincible run of ten fixtures at home.

On the other hand, Nurnberg did record a 0-1 win against Osnabruck the prior game week. But the game was closely-fought, and it was against a team that just gained promotion. Going on, they were winless in 15 of their last 21 overall matches, and were so in eight of their previous ten road trips. 

In addition, Heidenheim have only failed to score once against this opponent in the past ten years, and they have scored twice or more in the last three fixtures. They had also recorded a win in the lastest h2h encounter at home, and this season, along with the top two teams, they have conceded the least number of goals.

Taking these observations into account, rightfully count on a great performance by the hosts Heidenheim. To improve our chance for returns though, we will opt for some safer choices.
