Sandhausen vs Heidenheim Prediction & Match Preview

Sandhausen vs FC Heidenheim
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 8 January 2021
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Hardtwaldstadion.

Michael Schiele’s men are one of the worst in the competition, and are placed in the relegation zone at the moment. They have scored the least number of goals of all the teams in the league, and only two other teams have conceded more than them.

They have won just thrice this whole season, and two of those had come against teams placed 17th and 18th in the table.

Meanwhile, Frank Schmidt’s men are trailing by just seven points behind the toppers, and they have also been very consistent in the past two months. On top of that, they also have a great h2h record against this rival in recent times.

By the looks of things, expect Heidenheim to have the edge this Friday.

Sandhausen vs Heidenheim Prediction

Schiele’s men are on a five-game losing run, and had registered a combined scorecard of 0-17 in the process. They were also winless in 12 of their past 13 overall fixtures, and the only win during this stretch had come against the dead-last placed Wurzburger Kickers.

On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in six of their last seven match-ups, and they had kept clean sheets in four of their former five games.

In addition, Schmidt’s men also have a terrific h2h record against this opponent. They are on a winning run in h2h meetings at this venue since 2017, and have not lost here since 2009.

Considering these factors, expect Heidenheim to emerge victorious this Friday easily.
