Stuttgart vs Heidenheim prediction
Deniz Unav has been scoring less in a different role of late – Photo by Icon Sport

Player to watch – Deniz Undav

Deniz Undav is enjoying a fine campaign on loan with Stuttgart from parent club Brighton this season, netting 14 goals and creating six more during his impactful season in the final third.

Undav less effective from deeper?

Undav has done most of his damage as a centre-forward this season, though the 27-year-old has been deployed in a more withdrawn role since the return to fitness of Serhou Guirassy and his goal output has dropped off significantly as a result.
