|Borussia Dortmund -0.75
It could be worth examining the previous meeting between the sides before making a Heidenheim vs Dortmund prediction this week. Dortmund threw away a 2-0 lead earlier in the campaign, with the visitors netting twice in the second period to salvage a tie.
However, Dortmund have looked much stronger in recent weeks, and we don’t expect them to make the same mistakes once again on Friday. Therefore, it could be worth following the Bundesliga computer picks and siding with the visitors on the spread.

Heidenheim vs Borussia Dortmund Analysis
It has been a fine season to this point for Heidenheim, as the newly promoted side sit on the cusp of the top half. They come into this round in excellent recent form in the Bundesliga after going five without a loss in the German top-flight.
However, the Heidenheim standings could look much healthier if they hadn’t been held to draws in their last three matches. A return to winning ways on Friday could see them end the round as high as eighth in the table.
The Bundesliga team stats show that they will need to be more reliable in the final third if they are to make a late charge for a European spot, as they are among the lowest scorers in the top half after netting just 28 goals this term.
But, positives would have been taken from their recent display in the competition, as they come into this Heidenheim vs Dortmund matchup after playing out a 1-1 draw against Hoffenheim in their latest fixture in the competition.
Borussia Dortmund Preview
It has been an excellent return to action following the winter break for the Dortmund roster, as they have easily moved into a Champions League position after winning their last three matches.
Only the top three sides in the Bundesliga have landed more wins than Dortmund to this point, while they rank among the best attacking sides in the competition after netting 40 goals to this point.
Their chances of achieving a top four finish this term have been aided by the return to form of Niklas Fulkrug, who boosted his Bundesliga player stats last weekend after netting a stunning hat-trick against Bochum.
Dortmund bossed that fixture from start to finish, and they appear to be hitting form at this crucial stage of the campaign. A fourth straight win on Friday will see them move up to third in the Bundesliga table.
Heidenheim vs Borussia Dortmund Head-to-Head
This will only be the third encounter between these sides, with the first competitive clash ending in a 2-2 draw earlier in the season. The only other meeting saw Dortmund land a 4-3 win in a friendly.
