On Saturday afternoon, two of the Bundesliga’s out-of-form teams, Heidenheim and Union Berlin, go head-to-head at the Voith-Arena.Heidenheim form guide
The home team has taken just four points from their opening five matches in the Bundesliga. They have also lost three of their five games in their debut campaign in the German top flight.
Despite their relatively poor start to the campaign, Frank Schmidt’s team are in 13th place in the table, three above the relegation zone.
Heidenheim may have a great record in the German top flight this season, but their league games have produced goals galore, with over 2.5 goals scored in four of their five Bundesliga matches.
The fact that the home team has conceded at least two goals in all five of their league matches has been a significant factor in their high-scoring outings.Union Berlin form guide
The team from the German capital heads into this clash in woeful form, as Union have lost their last four games in all competitions, three of which came in the Bundesliga. The poor results of late in the Bundesliga have left Union in tenth place in the table, having taken six points from their opening five league games.
Like their opponents, Union have been poor in defence of late in the German top-flight, having conceded at least two goals in all three straight league defeats.
Union Berlin has been poor away from home in the German top flight, having lost three of their last four league games in the Bundesliga. Their recent away games in the league have been high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in the previous three Bundesliga matches on their travels.What am I backing?
Both teams have been poor of late in the Bundesliga. However, one common theme in both team's recent games has been high-scoring outings. Therefore, I am backing over 2.5 goals scored.
