Heidenheim 2023/24 Season Predictions

This season we predict Heidenheim will be relegated or be in a  relegation battle. Their story is amazing but their squad is not. We would love for them to establish themselves as a Bundesliga quality team but they may need to go down and back up again before this happens.
