VfL Bochum is all set to host Leipzig this weekend, as matchweek 24 of German Bundesliga 2021-22 draws to a close.
This will be Leipzig's 3rd of the 4 consecutive games it will be playing on the road across competitions. Talking about the Bundesliga, Leipzig has been in pretty good from off late and has picked up 15 points from a possible of 18 in the last 6 games. This has helped the club move into the top 4, ahead of Hoffenheim, which is tied at 37 points with Leipzig as well as Freiburg.
With as many as 7 teams vying for the coveted Champions League finish, Leipzig would like to create as much distance as it can between itself and the lower-ranked teams. It will be high on confidence going into this encounter, with back-to-back wins against Cologne and Hertha scoring an aggregate of 9 goals in those two games, while conceding just 2. With the quarterfinals of the DFB Pokal against Hannover coming up, a win in this weekend encounter will be a morale-boosting one.
Bochum, playing for the first time in the top flight in more than a decade, will be pretty happy with its performance in the last few weeks. Thanks to a lossless run of 5 games, the club now finds itself in the 11th spot with 29 points,7 points above relegation-threatened Augsburg. They managed to secure a famous 4-2 win against table-toppers Bayern Munich a couple of weeks ago, followed by a draw against Stuttgart in the last outing.
With its DFB Pokal quarterfinals against Freiburg scheduled to be held early next month, Bochum would again like to get back to winning ways this weekend.
Match prediction and betting tips for VfL Bochum vs RB Leipzig Bundesliga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Vonovia Ruhrstadion, Bochum, on 27th February 2022.
Leipzig coach Domenico Tedesco is likely to stick to an attacking style of play, to exploit the weak defenses of the host team. Except for Marcel Halstenberg, who is recovering from a joint injury, he is likely to have a fully fit squad at his disposal. However, Josko Gvardiol will be serving a suspension.
Thomas Reis on the other hand will most likely be taking on the field without Danny Blum, Paul Grave, and Simon Zoller, all of whom are out of action.
We expect the game to be a pretty high-scoring one, with both the teams netting at least once. However, Bochum is unlikely to repeat the heroics it showed against Bayern.
