Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Arminia Bielfeld and Heidenheim face each other at Schuco Arena in what is expected to be a close 2. Bundesliga encounter. Die Arminien have been struggling to find their best form in 2023, and, as a result, their 2. Bundesliga status is still in great danger. Sebastian Vasiliadis limped off with injury in a 2-1 loss to Hamburger SV, with Jomaine Consbruch likely to step up.
Heidenheim, on the other hand, aim to build on a thrilling 5-0 win over Nurnberg. The visitors looked sharp in front of goal in the last league match, and seeing that Arminia suffered yet another dip in form, we predict that Frank Schmidt’s troops are going to pick up all three points from the match. Both Adrian Beck and Elidon Qenaj are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Sebastian Vasiliadis):
Sebastian Vasilidis is a professional footballer of Greek descent who plays for SC Paderborn in the Bundesliga. The 175-cm-tall midfielder spent his youth career at TSG Backnang and VfR Aalen and he continued playing for the OSTALB ARENA outfit at senior level. After scoring 7 goals in 60 appearances for VfR Allen in league matches, Vasilidis signed a two-year deal with SC Paderborn on July 1, 2018.
The talented midfielder, who was born in Auenwald, Germany on October 4, 1997 played 28 games for the club in the 2018/2019 2. Bundesliga campaign, scoring 6 goals in the process. Seeing that Paderborn secured promotion to the German top flight, Sebastian Vasilidis will have a chance to enjoy the top flight football in the 2018/2019 season.
His main position is central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both attacking and defensive midfielder as well. Sebastian’s preferred foot is right and he has a dual citizenship (Germany, Greece).
Highlighted Team (Arminia Bielefeld):
Arminia Bielefeld is a German club founded on May 3, 1905. Die Arminen play home games at Bielefelder Alm. The venue was built in 1926, and it can hold up to 26,515 spectators. Arminia Bielefeld have yet to win the Bundesliga trophy, but they did well to lift the West German Cup title on two occasions (1966, 1974).
Back in 1922 they won the Western German football championship, with the team repeating the success the following year. Arminia Bielefeld wear dark blue shirts when playing at home ground, while white is the dominant colour of their away jersey. In the 2019/20 season Arminia returned to the Bundesliga, where they undisputedly belong.
Bruno Labbadia is considered one of the most famous footballers who played for the club. The ex Bayern Munchen attacker scored 50 goals in 98 appearances in the league for Arminia Bielefeld. Labbadia has two caps for the German national team, and six for the West Germany U21.
