Heidenheim welcomes Bayer Leverkusen in a clash from the 3rd round of the German DFB Pokal
Heidenheim welcomes Bayer Leverkusen in a clash from the 3rd round of the German DFB Pokal. We are going to examine this clash in our predictions 1X2 for this fixture.
In the previous round of the competition Heidenheim celebrated a comfortable 3-0 win over Sandhausen at home. The Austrian striker Nikola Dovedan scored a brace for the winning side, while Marc Schnatterer also scored a goal for the home side. It was a dominant performance for Heidenheim and a generally easy win for them.
In the 2. Bundesliga Heindenheim are currently 6th in the standings with 34 points and a record of 9 wins, 7 draws and 4 defeats. In their last five games they are unbeaten, though – three wins and two draws. This is telling us that right now Heidenheim are in a really good shape, so let’s see if this is going to help them against Leverkusen.
Bayer Leverkusen are the favourites, of course. They reached the 3rd round of the DFB Pokal after an incredible 5-0 win over Borussia M’gladbach away from home. Nobody really expected such a result from this game, because M’gladbach are a very capable team, doing better in the Bundesliga. But Leverkusen surprised a lot of people. Karim Bellarabi scored a brace for the visitors, while Julian Brandt, Tin Jedvaj and Kevin Volland also scored for Leverkusen. It was maybe their best game for the season.
In the Bundesliga Bayer Leverkusen are currently 7th in the standings with 30 points. They are currently in a very good shape, winning four of their last five matches in the league.
