Bochum – Die Unabsteigbbaren take some beating on own patch?

A 94th-minute penalty, coolly converted by Eduard Lowen for the on-loan midfielder’s first goal since arriving from Hertha Berlin for the rest of the season, saw Bochum go some way to preserving the momentum gained from their stunning 4-1 victory at home to champions Bayern Munich on Matchday 22. Bringing their points total to 29 from 23 games, surpassing their entire total from their previous campaign at this level.

Having built up a seven point buffer on the relegation places, Thomas Reis can prepare his charges for another exciting home fixture in the knowledge a loss wouldn’t prove disastrous. Not that this team deals in many of those at Vonovia-Ruhrstadion. Only six teams boast more points won at home than the 21 of Bochum (W6 D3 L2), who are currently enjoying their longest unbeaten spell of 2021-22 (W1 D3).

Key Stat: Mainz are the only Bundesliga side to have shipped fewer goals from their home league games in 2021-22 than VfL Bochum – 10 in 11 games.

RB Leipzig – Top four charge gathering pace?

Die Rotten Bullen’s revival under Domenico Tedesco shows little signs of slowing down if last week’s six-goal demolition of Hertha Berlin was anything to go by. In truth, the game changed on a red card – as the teams were locked at 1-1 prior to the capital club being reduced to ten men on the hour mark – but the ruthlessness with which last season’s Bundesliga runners-up capitalised was awe-inspiring.

That win represented the club’s biggest ever away from home in the Bundesliga. It was their fifth league win in six, a 3-2 loss away to the champions their only blip in an otherwise immaculate start to 2022. All five victories saw them prevail by at least a two goal margin, suggesting they could be a couple goals too good here. That is provided they recover in time from Thursday’s 3-1 victory in Spain against Real Sociedad.

Key Stat: In their latest Bundesliga away outing, RB Leipzig racked up two more goals in their 6-1 hammering of Hertha Berlin than in all seven away league games this season which were overseen by head coach Domenico Todesco’s predecessor, Jesse Marsch.

Bochum Vs RB Leipzig Betting Advice

History tells us that this encounter has the hallmarks for being a stiffer assignment for the home side than their most recent home outing, which was against the champions Bayern Munich. Bochum actually won that clash with something to spare, racing into a scarcely-believable 4-0 lead at the half-time interval. Twice as many goals as they’ve managed across all six competitive meetings with RB Leipzig.


Bochum Vs RB Leipzig – Key Facts:

  • This will be just a seventh competitive meeting between the clubs. RB Leipzig have won all six previous encounters, scoring 15 and conceding two.
  • Both teams are in excellent form. Bochum are unbeaten in four league games having lost one of their last nine at home, while RB Leipzig boast five wins in six having won their last two on the road.
  • Five of those six RB Leipzig games featured at least one goal from Christopher Nkunku, the Frenchman setting out to score for the fourth consecutive Bundesliga away game.


A win for the visitors would mark their sixth win in seven league games and extend their perfect head-to-head record to seven victories. Understandably then, RB Leipzig begin as favourites. This isn’t to say it will be straightforward. Bochum are unbeaten in four (W1 D3) and have lost one of the last nine as hosts (W5 D3). But the momentum is with the visitors who are taken to just about edge it at Vonovia-Ruhrstadion.
