Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 28 September 2019
Kick-off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Wildparkstadion (Karlsruhe).
Despite admitting defeat for three games in a running mid-way, Karlsruher have managed to turn things around and are currently unbeaten in their last two clashes. The squad forced Nurnberg to share the spoils with them in their previous trip on the road, prior to which they pulled off a 1-0 win over Sandhausen at home.
FC Heidenheim, on the other hand, are on a two-match winning streak of their own in their respective matchups, the most recent of which was a narrow 1-0 victory against Darmstadt. The visitors have been at the losing end just twice so far, only one of which was on the road.
Given the positive run of form that both teams are on the moment, it is certainly too soon to call a clear cut winner in this one.

Karlsruher vs Heidenheim Prediction
The hosts have let their fans down just once in their last four games in all competitions at home. However, that alone down not guarantee a win for them this week.
The guests have stumbled just once in their last three outings and have scored six goals so far while conceding just one less. It also needs saying that Heidenheim are unbeaten in their previous three visits to this venue, while their last defeat here came way back in the year of 2012.
However, Karlsruher have forced the away side to settle for not more than a point in two of their past three head to head clashes here. Considering that the visitors were held to a draw in their most recent trip on the road as well, the safest bet would have to be a double chance favoring Heidenheim as a win for the hosts is definitely out of the question.
Nevertheless, count on Karlsruher to go down swinging. The home team have found the back of the net in each of their last three home games and have scored seven from those clashes alone.
Taking into account that half of their last four meetings with the visitors here have also seen goals down each end, both teams can rule out any hopes of surviving the ninety minutes with a clean sheet at hand.
