German football is back with a bang, with action in the Bundesliga and 2. Bundesliga taking place across the weekend. Let’s focus on the second tier of German football, as Bochum welcome Heidenheim to the Ruhrstadion. These two are at different ends of the 2. Bundesliga table, but who will prevail in Bochum?

Bochum Preview – Can the hosts claim a first home win in five?

Thomas Reis’ Bochum have had a tough season so far. Die Unabsteigbaren hover just above the relegation zone, three points ahead of 16th place after 25 games. So far, Bochum have picked up just 28 points.

Despite their lowly position, Bochum were in decent form before the unexpected break. Reis’ troops have won two, drawn two and lost only one of their past five league fixtures. Before drawing 0-0 at Darmstadt in their last match, Bochum were involved in an eight-goal thriller with Sandhausen, drawing 4-4 last time out on home turf.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 1600 GMT, Thursday 14 May)

Die Unabsteigbaren have really struggled at home in recent games, picking up one point from a possible 12. Since beating Hannover 2-1 in mid-December, Bochum have lost three and drawn one of the subsequent four at the Ruhrstadion.

Bochum could really do with maximum points this weekend, as defeat would only add to their relegation fears. Can they secure a massive three points on home turf?

Heidenheim Preview – Will the visitors leave Bochum with all three points?

After a fifth-place finish in the 2. Bundesliga last season, Heidenheim will be hoping to finish even higher this time around. Frank Schmidt’s troops return to action in fourth spot after 25 games, accumulating an impressive 41 points. Heidenheim are ten points off the top but are just four points behind second-place Stuttgart.

Heidenheim have had a mixed bag of results on the road, winning four, drawing four and losing four of 12. Along the way, they have scored 12 and conceded 15. Nevertheless, only Bielefeld, Holsten Kiel and Hannover have picked up more away points than Schmidt’s boys up until now.

Heidenheim signed off before the break with an important 3-1 win over Karlsruhe at the Voith-Arena. They have been tough to beat in recent matches, losing only one of six (three wins, two draws). Schmidt’s side have blown hot and cold away from home, though, winning three and losing three of their last six on their travels. As Heidenheim seek automatic promotion to the Bundesliga, three points would be massive this Saturday.


Bochum vs Heidenheim Betting Advice

Heidenheim have lost just two home league encounters this season, with one of those losses coming against Bochum in the reverse matchup in October. In a thriller at Voith-Arena, Reis’ men left Heidenheim with an impressive 3-2 away win.


Key Facts – Bochum vs Heidenheim Betting Tip

  • Bochum have taken just one point from their last four home matches
  • Heidenheim have won two of their last three away league games
  • The hosts have yet to win a home fixture in 2020


However, a lot has changed since then, and Heidenheim will certainly be out for revenge at the weekend. The away team have shipped just 15 away goals thus far, which is the second best record in the league. I fancy Heidenheim to keep a clean sheet in this one, so take a punt on the visitors to win to nil at 15/4.

Heidenheim’s Tim Kleindienst was in red-hot form before the league halted, scoring five goals in his last four appearances. Back the 24-year-old to score first at 7/1.
