All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for Hannover v Heidenheim are shown below including the latest game odds.
Hannover will be wanting a better result here after the 1-2 Bundesliga 2 defeat in their last game at the hands of Würzburger Kickers.
In that match, Hannover managed 67% possession and 11 shots on goal with 2 on target. The scorer for Hannover was Genki Haraguchi (48'). Würzburger Kickers got 13 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. Frank Ronstadt (58') and Rajiv van La Parra (81') scored for Würzburger Kickers.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent games where Hannover haven’t conceded. The reality is that Hannover have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 11 goals in the process. It will be interesting to see whether or not that trend will be continued on in this game.
Coming into this meeting, Hannover are without a home win in the past 4 league games. Their fans aren't happy.
Heidenheim come into this match following a 1-0 Bundesliga 2 win as they beat Holstein Kiel in their most recent match.
In that game, Heidenheim had 36% possession and 12 attempts at goal with 3 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Heidenheim was Tim Kleindienst (17'). Holstein Kiel had 13 shots at goal with 3 of them on target.
The stats don’t lie, and Heidenheim have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 8 goals in all. In defence, Heidenheim have seen their frailties exposed.

Team News: Hannover
Kingsley Schindler (Dead Leg), Timo Hübers (Muscle Injury), Genki Haraguchi (Corona virus) and Franck Evina (Ruptured knee ligament) aren’t available for Hannover manager Kenan Kocak. Niklas Hult will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Team News: Heidenheim
Heidenheim boss Frank Schmidt has to choose a team with limited availability. Gianni Mollo (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Diant Ramaj (Torn Meniscus) and Dzenis Burnic (Hairline crack in calfbone) can’t be considered. Christian Kühlwetter cannot play in this game through suspension.
We’re of the opinion that Heidenheim may not find it easy to register a score against this Hannover side who we think should get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re therefore predicting a narrow 1-0 win for Hannover at the end of the 90.
Looking forward to this.
