VfB Stuttgart vs FC Heidenheim Prediction
VfB Stuttgart shared the spoils for the second time in a row after Hannover held them to a 2-2 draw on the road in their most recent matchup. Nevertheless, the hosts are unbeaten in their past three fixtures in the second division and have stumbled just twice in their previous eight across various competitions.
At the moment, the home team are right above Heidenheim on third with a slender one-point advantage.
Meanwhile, the visitors pulled off a thumping 3-1 win over Osnabruck in their last clash. The guests are certainly on a convincing run of form as of now and have not admitted defeat since their 3-1 loss to Jahn Regensburg back in late November.
Be that as it may, Heidenheim have been erratic on the road this term. They have dropped points in six of their previous eight outings, and have just one victory to boast of from their past five as well.
In sharp contrast, Stuttgart have been tasting nothing but success in their last three games here on the trot. With the hosts clearly at their best on home soil, FC Heidenheim’s chances of causing an upset are certainly looking bleak.
Furthermore, to be frank, Stuttgart have been scoring goals at will in their recent clashes at home. Impressively, they have netted no less than three goals in each of their previous three fixtures here, and have racked up a total eighteen goals to their name so far as well.
On the other hand, ten of the twenty-seven goals for Heidenheim this season, have come from their trips on the road.
In addition, their only previous meeting with each other here also produced over 2.5 goals on the charts. Taking the aforementioned into consideration, expect nothing short of a high scoring affair in this one too.
