Sandhausen vs FC Heidenheim Prediction

Sandhausen lost on the road the last match-day against Nurnberg. The scoreline was 2-0, and the defeat put an end to the long unbeaten run of Sandhausen. For sure the team will be particular about getting back to their groove.

In the meantime, Heidenheim were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Dresden. The fact that the guests were the dead-last placed team in the competition will surely be a cause for alarm at the Heidenheim camp.

They have been completely winless in 2020, and in fact are yet to score a goal. They had also lost their latest road game by a scoreline of 3-0, and were winless in eight of their former nine matches away from home. 

On the other hand, Sandhausen were unbeaten in nine of their previous ten overall fixtures, and have been unbeaten in front of the home crowd since August of last year. In fact, only twice have the team lost at this venue this season, and one was even against a top-tier team from the Bundesliga.

Finally, Sandhausen had even won the reverse fixture of this game, that too while keeping a clean sheet. They are also on a two-game winning run against this opponent. Considering all these observations, it’s deduced that the hosts Sandhausen are the team to be backed this Friday.
