Ingolstadt vs Heidenheim
2.Bundesliga – Season 2017/18
Date: Friday, 20th October 2017
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Audi Sportpark (Ingolstadt).
Ingolstadt started to find some momentum after a poor start to the campaign. The team that started with three defeats on the bounce has now managed to pick 3 wins and 2 draws from 7 matches while losing twice. It is a steady progress, yet the team is just 3 points above the relegation zone.
Last week, Ingolstadt drew 2-2 away at Dresden, but three points were in sight as they squandered a 2 goal cushion. They are currently on a two match unbeaten run, the previous being their first home win of the season by a 3-0 margin against fellow relegated Darmstadt.
Heidenheim had a fruitful 2016/17 season and finished 6th in the league table. But things haven’t go well so far for them as they sit at the tip of the drop zone. They already lost 6 of their 10 games, while points came from 2 wins and 2 draws. They are currently unbeaten in four games with the latest two being defeats.
Heidenheim’s latest defeat came at home against the newly promoted Holstein Kiel by a 3-5 margin. The performance was nothing but a remainder of the fixed need in the defensive unit.
Ingolstadt vs Heidenheim: Head-to-head
The teams haven’t met that often in competitive fixtures and Ingolstadt had won all four recent duels.
The most recent happened to be in the 2014/15 2.Bundesliga campaign when they bagged a pair of 1-0 wins. The previous meetings can be dated back to the 2009/10 third division campaign.
It will be worthy enough to note that all four wins had come by a single goal margin.
Ingolstadt vs Heidenheim: Predictions
Both teams are struggling at the bottom half of the table and three points are extremely important here.
The key point to keep in mind while picking bets for this match is the vulnerable defense of Heidenheim. They conceded 20 goals from their 10 matches so far. To make things worse, they are not consistent in finding the opposite net.
Ingolstadt have similar problems, because they can be count up on as they are in an excellent scoring form at home. This is one core reason why I see them getting three points at the end of a thrilling match.
