Heidenheim vs Union Berlin
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 15th March 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Voith-Arena (Heidenheim).
Berlin is chasing Hamburger for the direct promotional spot to the Bundesliga. With just nine more rounds to go, the former has three points to catch up, and if that’s possible, they would be just a single point away from the pole position.
So, all in all, Union Berlin is still a title contender. The fact that they are on the road might be a little mood-killer, but their hosts, Heidenheim, lost their last two games and is winless in their last four matches.
Heidenheim had been one of the most consistent teams in the German second division, until the last month. Some complacency may have caught up with them, but they still are a very formidable opponent at home. Union will have to sweat it out if their hopes for the title are serious.

Heidenheim vs Union Berlin Prediction
This tie is shaping up to be an ultra-competitive one. While Heidenheim wants to get back to their unbeaten and winning ways at home, Union Berlin is desperate to catch up to Hamburger and FC Koln in the race for the title. Both teams don’t have much use for defensive tactics in this fixture. Expect a full set of attacking ninety minutes.
Also, games between these teams have always produced plenty of goals, especially the ones at this venue. Except for a single game four years back, every other h2h meeting at the stadium had three or more goals.
In fact, the last one alone had seven in total. Also, Heidenheim recorded three or more goals in four of their last five home h2h ties, and Union Berlin did so in 17 of their last 19 overall games and scored twice or more in their last four away matches in succession.
Expect a goal-fest this Friday.
