          Heidenheim vs Bayer Leverkusen: Betting Tips, Match Prediction & Preview

          The Voith Arena hosts Heidenheim and Bayer Leverkusen this Saturday in the Bundesliga. Leverkusen look to extend their lead at the top of the table whereas Heidenheim sit in the mid-table, looking to get into the conversation for European football.

          These odds are correct at the time of publication and are subject to change.

          Bayer will look to take home yet another win whereas Heidenheim are within touching distance of European football, needing a big win this weekend over the dominant Leverkusen.

          Heidenheim currently sit eighth in the Bundesliga after 21 games. Der Dino have seven wins, six draws and eight losses, leaving them on 27 points, just five points from Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa Conference League Qualifiers spot.

          In their 21 games, Heidenheim have scored 30 goals, which gives them an average of just 1.43 goals a game. However, Heidenheim’s defence have let them down, conceding 36 goals and keeping just five clean sheets.

          Bayer Leverkusen, on the other hand, currently sit top of the Bundesliga. In 21 games, Leverkusen have 17 wins and four draws, still the only team without a loss in the league. This leaves Leverkusen on 55 points, five points above Bayern Munich.

          Leverkusen have been on fire in front of goal this season. In their 21 games, Leverkusen have scored 55 goals, with an average of 2.62 goals a game. At the other end of the pitch, Leverkusen have also excelled, conceding just 14 goals and keeping 11 clean sheets.

          Heidenheim and Bayer Leverkusen have met just twice in their histories, once in the DFB Pokal in 2019 and in September this season. Each side has one win, both teams scoring in both games, with a draw yet to happen.

          In the DFB Pokal, Julian Brandt opened the scoring for Leverkusen. But goals from Nikola Dovedan and Maurice Multhaup gave Heidenheim the 2 - 1 win.

          However, in September, Leverkusen took an early lead through Victor Boniface. Eren Dinkci equalised early in the second half, but another goal from Boniface and goals from Jonas Hofmann and Amine Adli gave Leverkusen the 4 - 1 win.
