Heidenheim vs Jahn Regensburg
2.Bundesliga – Season 2017/18
Date: Friday, 8th September 2017
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Voith-Arena (Heidenheim an der Brenz).
Heidenheim was a team competing for promotion play-off last season. But they failed to took-off so far in the new campaign. After four match-weeks, they are 16th in the standings with 1 win and 3 defeats.
Scoring goals remain a major worry for the team managed by Frank Schmidt, which do little justice to an industrious midfield and defense.
Regensburg are the newly promoted side and it is a no brainier that the team will find the going tough with the high intense level of 2.Bundesliga. They lost 3 of their 4 games so far, but the overdue win came as a surprise against Ingolstadt away from home in a six goal thriller.
There is no doubt that the team has some firepower upfront and if they can use it to good effect, relegation shouldn’t be a worry by the end of May.
Heidenheim vs Regensburg: Head-to-head
The most recent meetings between the sides happened between 2009 and 2014 in the four seasons together in the third division. Five of them are draws including the latest four, while Regensburg won 2 as against Heidenheim’s 1.
It is worth to note that Heidenheim started in those 8 games as bookies’ favourites.
Heidenheim vs Regensburg: Predictions
Both teams will sense a chance to go for a winner in this fixture with the teams having a number of known weaknesses in all departments of play. Therefore, a fairly open battle is expected and once again. But Regensburg will be a team with no pressure on their back and they could end up with something in their bag, just as they did in 7 of the previous 8 h2h meetings against their Friday’s host.
