Check out our predictions of the day for Heidenheim vs. Bayer Leverkusen

Prediction 1: Heidenheim x Bayer Leverkusen / Bayer Leverkusen to win

Two Bundesliga’s hottest teams will square off in Saturday’s contest. So far this season, the hosts enjoy a fantastic record in the Voith-Arena, losing just twice. This means they will be competitive with the soaring tourists.

Considering Heidenheim as a greater danger to Bayer Leverkusen’s undefeated streak than Bayern Munich may have seemed absurd a few months ago. Though danger is always there, the away team has what it takes to pull off a tight win this coming Saturday. Wee thinks Alonso and his team will win, but it will be close.

Prediction 2: Heidenheim x Bayer Leverkusen / Over 2.5 goals

We anticipate Heidenheim and Leverkusen scoring three or more in the regular 90 minutes of Saturday’s encounter, which is why our prediction is over 2.5 goals. We have substantial cause to be optimistic, given various statistical data that imply that both sides have goals in them.

Prediction 3: Heidenheim x Bayer Leverkusen / Florian Witz to score

Bayer Leverkusen may have suffered dramatically without Victor Boniface. Although the Bundesliga leaders rely on a single man for offensive production, Xabi Alonso has done an excellent job balancing his squad. Florian Wirtz, however, is in charge while the wing-backs soar.

After a lengthy injury layoff, the German international has recovered well and emerged as a critical player for Bayer Leverkusen. In 29 games this campaign, he has scored eight goals and assisted on fifteen more. Also, this weekend’s match against a determined Heidenheim team will need Wirtz to play at his peak.
