Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 29th March 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: MDCC-Arena (Magdeburg).
Either team comes into this tie with contrasting objectives. Heidenheim is chasing the last available European spot, which is currently in possession of Union Berlin and is just five points in surplus.
Meanwhile, Magdeburg is battling relegation and has posted just 23 points on the board from their 26 games. With eight games remaining in the league, they will most probably target Sandhausen’s spot, who also has the same 23 points, but is higher in the table.
The reverse fixture for this tie had ended in a home win for Heidenheim, with a 3-0 scoreline. And to date, that remains the only h2h game these two have taken part in the last two decades.

Magdeburg vs Heidenheim Prediction
Heidenheim is simply a cut above when the quality of these teams is taken into account. They are fighting to gain promotion to Europe, whereas, Magdeburg is actively trying to avoid relegation. The team has failed to post at least an average of 1 point per game so far.
Heidenheim was unbeaten in 24 of their last 27 games, and in 15 of their last 18 on the road. On the other hand, Magdeburg is on a streak of four winless ties, and had just four wins in their last 17 home ties, three of which were friendlies. There’s really no way the team could avoid a loss in this fixture.
But it begs to be noted that Magdeburg is desperate. They need to perform in the remaining eight games or pack their bags to the lower division. For the reason, expect them to try their best to get on the scoresheet.
And with Magdeburg scoring in 19 of their last 25 home ties, and Heidenheim conceding in 20 of their last 23 away ties, expect both teams to share the goal-scoring duty.
