Friday night (19:30) in the Bundesliga sees Heidenheim 1846 welcome Borussia Dortmund to the Voith-Arena in a clash that pits 10th against fourth.

The hosts have been one of the surprise packages in the Bundesliga this term, with the newly-promoted side looking right at home in the top-flight as they sit 11 points above the relegation zone.

Impressively, they haven't lost a league game since the beginning of December and they have already taken a point off Dortmund this term so they will fancy their chances here.

Dortmund head into this one off the back of three wins in a row and they themselves are unbeaten in their last five.

Heidenheim are 3/1 to cause a huge upset on Friday night. They have drawn three matches in a row and a stalemate here can be backed at 7/2. Dortmund are 7/10 to come away with the three points.

Both teams to score came in when the two sides met at Signal Iduna Park and you can back it to land this time around at 4/9. Over 2.5 goals is priced at 2/5.

Team News

Elidon Qenaj and Thomas Keller are sidelined through injury for Heidenheim. Benedikt Gimber and Denis Thomalla are doubts to feature with concussion and illness respectively.

Dortmund are without striker Sebastien Haller, who is at the Africa Cup of Nations, and Felix Nmecha who is sidelined with a hip injury. Karim Adeyemi, Julian Ryerson and Gregor Kobel are doubtful ahead of Friday's clash.

Niclas Fullkrug to score anytime @ 6/5

Last year's Bundesliga top goalscorer, Niclas Fullkrug, has been a regular source of goals for Dortmund this year after arriving in the summer from Werder Bremen. The 30-year-old has scored nine goals in 17 appearances in the league this term and four of them have come in his last two.

He bagged a hat-trick last time out against VfL Bochum which sets him up nicely for the trip to Heidenheim this weekend. As Dortmund's leading marksman he will carry their biggest threat in this contest.

And with him scoring in back-to-back matches, we fancy his chances to make it three games in a row at 6/5.

The spoils were shared when these two sides met earlier in the season in a 2-2 draw, and Heidenheim have shown that they are a difficult team to beat this year.

However, with the run that Dortmund are on, we think that they can end the hosts' unbeaten run and extend their winning streak in this one. They are currently 13 points adrift of league leaders Bayer Leverkusen, so a late title charge seems unlikely right now.

But they are looking to ensure that they do secure Champions League football for next term. RB Leipzig will be pressuring them for that fourth spot which means they cannot afford any slip-ups as Marco Rose's team will be waiting to pounce.

Heidenheim have scored in their last eight in the league and we do fancy them to continue their scoring run but with the quality that Dortmund have in their ranks, which they will need to shine through, they should edge this contest.
