Best Tip: Over 2.5 goals

Our prediction for Saturday's match is over 2.5 goals, meaning that we expect Heidenheim and Leverkusen to score 3 goals or more between them during the standard 90 minutes. 2 goals or fewer would mean the time doesn't win but, with statistics below suggesting both teams have goals in them, we think there's good reason to feel confident.

The bookies are indicating that goals may be in plentiful supply in this fixture, as the odds are shortening on over 2.5 goals and drifting on under 2.5. Spectating fans could well be in for a thrilling 90 minutes, and punters predicting an over could be going home happy too.
