A disappointed Dortmund will be hosting VfL Bochum this weekend, in the final weeks of the ongoing season of the German Bundesliga 2021-22 season.
With its defeat against Bayern Munich last weekend, any chances of Dortmund finishing at the first spot have been extinguished, as it now trails Bayern by 12 points with just 3 matches to go. Nevertheless, the hosts will still be looking to win this game, in order to finish the season on a strong note.
Dortmund hit a rough patch at the wrong time and has managed to win just 2 of its last 5 outings, picking up just 7 points of a possible 15. This allowed Bayern to mount an unassailable lead. The last weekend’s game between the two teams was expected to be a close fight, but thanks to goals by Gnabry and Lewandowski in the first half, the visitors had no real chance of a comeback and ended the game with a 3-1 defeat. However, Dortmund starts this game as a firm favorite on most football betting sites.
Enjoying an 8-point lead over the bottom 3, Bochum has all but secured its place in the next season’s top tier. However, the club cannot afford to be complacent just yet, as with 3 more games to go, there is a theoretical chance that Stuttgart can overtake them. Bochum has been winless in its last 3 matches, losing 2 consecutive games as they travel to Dortmund.
Its most recent defeat came in a home game against Augsburg, who beat them with a convincing 2-0 scoreline. This was the 15th defeat for Bochum in this season, and the 4th time in 5 games that they failed to score.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Borussia Dortmund vs VfL Bochum Bundesliga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Westfalenstadion, Dortmund, on 30th April 2022.
Dortmund’s league prospects have been undone by its own failures in the past few weeks. But we expect them to bounce back in style with this game. The club will again be relying on Erling Haaland, who is 3rd on the list of top scorers this season, to give them a good start. Marco Rose has a relatively fit squad to choose from, with the only absentee being Emre Can, who will be serving a suspension.
Bochum too will be choosing from a fully fit squad, as Konstantinos Stafylidis is the only player who is unavailable for selection due to suspension.
Bet on Borussia Dortmund to win.
We have seen goals flow whenever Borussia Dortmund has taken the field this season. That is one of the reasons why the odds on offer are so short. Still, each of the last 3 away games for Bochum has seen more than 2.5 goals being scored in them, while 8 of the last 9 home games in the top flight for Dortmund too have seen similar outcomes, adding weight to our prediction.
Haaland has scored just twice in the last 7 games and will be looking to end the season on a high in these last few games. We expect the Norwegian talisman to net the ball at least once in this match. After all, rumors of his move to Manchester City are rife and he could very soon become the highest-paid footballer in the world. This is the time to score goals and add pressure on the negotiating table!
