Description: Bochum faces an angry RB Leipzig on Saturday, and with just one loss away from the relegation zone, they need a miracle to deflate their opponent’s wrath. RB Leipzig are charging in, which could make for an entertaining fixture. Kickoff is at 2:30PM (UTC), at the Vonovia Ruhrstadion, Bochum, Germany.
Bochum got its first victory in five games over Koln on Matchday 24. Before that, it suffered a four-game losing streak, which explains why the club is in 14th position and only two points above relegation.
On the other hand, Leipzig aims to transfer every aggression from its seven-nil loss to Manchester City over to Bochum. Despite winning just two games in its last five, the club will be ready to compensate with a win and consolidate its third position.
A combined seven players will miss the game through injuries and illness. Bochum will be heading into the match without Cristian Michael Esser and Simon Zoller. Meanwhile, Leipzig will miss four players – Christopher Nkunku, Abdou Diallo, Peter Gulacsi and Xaver Schlager.
A win is most likely for RB Leipzig. However, it is unreliable away from home. We predict that more than three goals will be scored in the match, with the (Over 2.5) odds set at 1.66 (-151 American; 33/50 Fractional).
Reason: RB Leipzig has played over 2.5 goals in eight of its last ten matches. The club knows how to score and concede – the perfect ingredients for our prediction. Bochum, on the other hand, has conceded two or more goals in eight out of ten previous fixtures. Besides, their head-to-head consists of four over 2.5 affairs in five games.
