On Sunday afternoon, Heidenheim and Werder Bremen clash at the Voith-Arena in the Bundesliga as both teams look to get back on track.Heidenheim form guide
The Bundesliga new boys have experienced a difficult start to life in the German top flight, failing to win any of their league outings this season. One positive for the home team was that they ended a two-game losing run in the German top flight by coming back from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Dortmund last time out.
A key factor in Heidenheim’s poor Bundesliga results this season has been their poor defensive record, as they have conceded at least two goals in all three league matches. Their poor defensive record has contributed to two of their last three Bundesliga games producing over 2.5 goals.Werder Bremen form guide
Die Werderaner has endured a mixed start to the new Bundesliga campaign. They lost their opening two games against Bayern Munich and Freiburg before returning to winning ways with a 4-0 home win over Mainz.
The victory ended a goal drought for Werder that stretched back to last season, as they had failed to score in their previous three matches in the German top flight.
However, Werder’s recent games in the Bundesliga have been high-scoring, with 13 of their last 16 games producing over 2.5 goals.
Werder have a woeful recent away record in the German top-flight, winning just one of their last nine Bundesliga games on their travels. The poor away run includes defeat in their previous four league outings away from home.
Their recent away games have been relatively high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in six of their previous eight matches on the road.What am I backing?
Neither team has been great this season. However, I expect this clash to be high-scoring, so the bet I am backing is over 2.5 goals.
