Borussia Dortmund v FC Heidenheim
Edin Terzic and Borussia Dortmund will be under significant pressure when they kick off the Bundesliga gameweek against FC Heidenheim on Friday. Die Schwarz-Gelben were lucky to scrape a late winner on the opening matchday, and last weekend, they were again fortunate to come away with a 1:1 draw in Bochum. The midfield pivot of Emre Can and Marcel Sabitzer looks far from cohesive, while Sebastian Haller has ghosted across the pitch over the first two gameweeks - registering only 3 shots all season.
FC Heidenheim will fancy taking their first points of the season against this decimated BVB squad, but it shouldn’t go unnoticed that the Signal-Iduna Park is an absolute fortress on Friday evenings. Dortmund have not lost a Friday evening home match since January 30, 2004 (0:1 vs. Schalke), and since that defeat, they have registered 25 wins and 8 draws.
Prediction: Borussia Dortmund Win
