📏 Form Guide
Regensburg, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 1-2 Bundesliga 2 triumph against Eintracht Braunschweig.
In that match, Regensburg had 58% possession and 15 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. For Regensburg, the scorers were Charalambos Makridis (21') and Prince Osei Owusu (49'). On the other side, Eintracht Braunschweig had 17 shots on goal with 6 of them on target. Immanuel Pherai (2') was the scorer for Eintracht Braunschweig.
It has not been often in recent times where Regensburg have shown defensive steel. The reality is that Regensburg have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 12 goals on the way.
Looking at their past form shows that Regensburg:
- have left without a victory over Heidenheim in their previous 6 matches in the league.
- haven’t won at home in the past 3 league matches.
Heidenheim come into this meeting following on from a 1-0 Bundesliga 2 win with the downing of SV Sandhausen in their last match.
In that game, Heidenheim had 60% possession and 21 attempts on goal with 6 of them on target. The scorer for Heidenheim was Jan-Niklas Beste (68'). Sandhausen got 3 shots on goal with 0 of them on target.
A sequence of steadfast performances from the Heidenheim defensive players has resulted in the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 3 from their last 6 fixtures in total. During the same time, their forwards have scored 11. We shall soon see if that trend can be continued on into this next match.
Coming into this meeting, Heidenheim have not been beaten by Regensburg in away games against them for the last 2 league games.
🤜🤛 Head to head

There were also plenty of goals scored in those games, 22 overall at an average of 3.67 goals per match.
The last league clash featuring these sides was Bundesliga 2 match day 17 on 12/11/2022 and the score finished Heidenheim 5-4 Regensburg.

🗞️ Team News: Regensburg
There’s just the sole fitness concern for the Regensburg gaffer Joe Enochs to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed group. Oscar Schönfelder (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is out of contention. Charalampos Makridis is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
It’s our opinion that Regensburg could make use of the 4-4-2 system for this game, utilising Jonas Urbig, Benedikt Saller, Steve Breitkreuz, Scott Kennedy, Leon Guwara, Aygün Yildirim, M. Thalhammer, Benedikt Gimber, Konrad Faber, Prince Osei Owusu and Andreas Albers.
ℹ️ Team News: Heidenheim
Heidenheim boss Frank Schmidt has a number of players out of action. Elidon Qenaj (Knee Injury) and Adrian Beck (Achilles tendon surgery) will not be playing here.
There’s a good chance that Heidenheim will likely elect for a 4-1-4-1 formation, going with Kevin Müller, Marnon Busch, Tim Siersleben, Patrick Mainka, Jonas Föhrenbach, Lennard Maloney, Florian Pick, Jan Schöppner, Denis Thomalla, Jan-Niklas Beste and Tim Kleindienst.
In our view, Regensburg should have enough to breach the defence of this Heidenheim lineup, although just one goal is unlikely to be enough.
We therefore reckon that it will be a close game with a 1-2 advantage for Heidenheim at full-time. Could easily go either way, this.
