THE TEAM NEWS

HEIDENHEIM

  • Heidenheim’s promotion hopes suffered a big blow as they were on the end of a heavy defeat away at Bochum in their first game back in Bundesliga 2 action last weekend and they will be eager to respond here.
  • Bochum notched twice in the first half before adding a third goal in the second period to complete a comfortable victory as Heidenheim’s issues on the road continued but a return to home comforts will give them a great platform to hit back.
  • Heidenheim are unbeaten in their last eight home matches in the league and will be boosted by the return of centre-back Oliver Husing who is expected to be one of a few changes following last week’s poor showing.

WEHEN WIESBADEN

  • Wehen Wiesbaden secured a vital victory in their battle to avoid relegation as they sealed the most dramatic of victories to upset Stuttgart last weekend as they were able to carry on where they left off before the enforced suspension of the league.
  • Stuttgart were on top for large spells but Wehen were able to frustrate them and it was the hosts that took the lead through Manuel Schaffler just five minutes into the second half and it looked as though their hard work would not be rewarded with the win as the visitors found a leveller in the final 10 minutes.
  • However, there was to be a final twist when Phillip Tietz held his nerve deep into stoppage time to convert from the spot but they have suffered a double blow ahead of this contest with centre-backs Sascha Mockenhaupt and Benedikt Rocker ruled out after each collecting their fifth yellow card of the season.

THE PREDICTION

Wehen Wiesbaden claimed an important victory over Stuttgart last week and will hope to build on that upset as they head to Heidenheim. The hosts were disappointing last week as they suffered a one-sided loss against Bochum with their away form continuing to prove an issue. They will hope to get back on the promotion trail here and having avoided defeat in their last eight league games on home soil, they should be able to take advantage of Wehen’s suspension issues at the back to get back to winning ways.
