Bochum is still searching for its first points, as it hosts title holders Bayern Munich this weekend in the Bundesliga 2022-23 season.
Bochum, which finished 13th on the points table in the previous season, has suffered successive defeats in both its opening matches. For its opening match of the season, Bochum hosted Mainz and was trailing by a goal in the 26th minute. Kevin Stoger answered before the end of the first half, and the scores were level. However, a second goal by Karim Onisiwo denied them any points.
Last week, Bochum traveled to Hoffenheim to play its second match of the season. Forward Simon Zoller scored a double within a span of 3 minutes to give the visitors an early lead. They were however unable to hold on to it for long, and scores were level at half-time. Dabour scored the winning goal for the hosts in the final moments of the game, to complete the humiliation for Bochum. With consecutive losses, Bochum finds itself at the 17th spot. Although it is quite early in the tournament, Thomas Reis will need to get some points under his kitty soon.
Bayern Munich seems to have continued with its sensational form. After lifting the Bundesliga title for a record-extending 31st time in the last season, Bayern has won both its opening matches in the current season. After decimating Eintracht 6-1 in the opening match, Bayern hosted Wolfsburg last weekend. Jamal Musiala and Thomas Muller scored within 10 minutes of each other, and the visitors had no answer.
While many expected Munich to fumble after the departure of Robert Lewandowski, the new entrants seem to have seamlessly integrated with Julian Nagelsmann, and the club looks well on track to claim another title.
Match prediction and football betting tips for VfL Bochum vs Bayern Munich Bundesliga 2022-23. The match is going to be played at the Vonovia Ruhrstadion, Bochum, on 21st August 2022.
The hosts are likely to have a long list of missing players, as Gerrit Holtmann, Jacek Goralski, Konstantinos Stafylidis, and Patrick Osterhage are all doubtful for this game. Danilo Soares, who is suffering from a hip issue, will be sitting on the bench.
As for the visitors, Jamal Musiala, Choupo-Moting, and Leon Goretzka will not be taking the trip to Bochum. Coach Nagelsmann is likely to use a 4-4-2 formation for this game.
We think that Bochum’s wait for points is likely to be longer, as the visitors are all set to pick up their third consecutive win.
Bet on a Bayern Munich victory.
While Bayern has a solid defense, Bochum has managed to consistently score against them. In 6 of the last 8 top-flight matches against Bayern, Bochum has scored at least once. Bochum has scored in each of its last 5 top-flight games, and we expect them to score here too.
Each of the last 8 top-flight matches between the two clubs has seen a score higher than 2.5 goals. The last 5 top flight games for Bochum and 6 of the last 7 top flight matches involving Bayern have seen an aggregate score of at least 3 goals. We are therefore expecting another high-scoring encounter this Sunday.
