FC Heidenheim has had a mixed bag of results this season. With 27 points from 21 games, they find themselves in the middle of the league table. Their recent form has been relatively stable, with a series of draws and a crucial win in their last outing.

This result should boost their confidence as they prepare to face a much tougher opponent.

Playing at home could be a significant factor for Heidenheim, as they have shown resilience at the Voith-Arena.

Leverkusen's last fixture saw them secure a commanding 3-0 victory over Bayern Munich at the BayArena, further cementing their status as title favorites. Their form coming into this match is formidable, with four wins and one draw in their last five games. Despite playing away from home, Leverkusen's consistency and quality make them a daunting challenge for any side.

The team's success can be attributed to a well-balanced squad and tactical acumen, which will be crucial in navigating through Heidenheim's defense. The previous head-to-head record against Heidenheim is evenly split with one win each, suggesting that past encounters have been competitive.
