Two clubs looking over their shoulders nervously at the Bundesliga relegation zone meet on Sunday afternoon as Heidenheim hosts Bochum.Heidenheim form guide
The home team is currently three points clear of the relegation play-off spot. Their recent results in the Bundesliga have been poor, as a 4-2 defeat at reigning champions Bayern Munich means they have lost four of their last five league games.
A leaky defence has played a big role in Heidenheim’s poor recent league results, conceding at least two goals in all four recent defeats in the Bundesliga.
Heidenheim have picked up good results lately on home soil, as they have won three of their last four matches in the German top-flight. Their home games in the Bundesliga have been high-scoring on home soil, with over 2.5 goals scored in four of their five home outings.Bochum form guide
The visitors currently sit in 14th place in the table, just two points clear of the relegation play-off spot after just one win in their 11 league games this season.
However, a 1-1 home draw against Koln last time out made them unbeaten in three outings in the German top-flight. The game ended a high-scoring recent run of matches for Thomas Letsch’s team, as their previous three Bundesliga games had all produced over 2.5 goals.
Bochum ended a run of ten away games in the Bundesliga without a victory by recording a 2-1 win at Darmstadt in their last away match in the German top-flight.
Their recent Bundesliga matches on their travels have certainly not lacked goals, as there have been over 2.5 goals scored in five of their last six away games in the league.What am I backing?
Heidenheim has been decent on home soil, while Bochum has been relatively difficult to beat lately. I can see this game being a high-scoring and entertaining encounter, so I am backing over 2.5 goals scored.
