FC Heidenheim vs Osnabruck Prediction
FC Heidenheim dropped points for the first time in three games last week, after Bielefeld managed to hold to a goalless draw. The hosts have now stumbled just once in their past six fixtures in the 2.Bundesliga and have garnered eleven points from a possible eighteen in the process as well.
With twenty-seven points to their name, the home side have been placed fourth on the ladder, just above Osnabruck who are a point short.
The visitors have been recording back to back wins in their past three games on the trot. Their last clash at home saw them slot three unanswered goals past Dresden. While on the road, they got the better of Holstein Kiel with a thumping 4-2 scorecard.
It is also worth mentioning that the guests have not tasted defeat in the second division since early October. However, Osnabruck have not been as menacing on the road this season as they are at home.
Miserably, they have come away with the win just twice in their last eight outings. In sharp contrast, Heidenheim have secured the bragging rights in three of their past four games on home soil.
Taking into account that the hosts emerged victoriously in their previous meeting with this foe here as well, Osnabruck are the underdogs to come out on top this weekend.
Be that as it may, the guests have salvaged a point in three of their previous four trips on the road. Considering that the hosts had to share the spoils in their most recent clash here too, it will be safer to opt for a Draw no bet in this one.
Furthermore, the visitors have been looking lively in the final third, as of late. They have found the back of the net eight times from their last three outings alone.
Meanwhile, fourteen of the twenty-four goals for Heidenheim so far have come from their matchups on home soil. As such, expect both teams to rack up the goal scoring charts this Sunday.
