Bayern vs Bochum – Betting Preview
At the Allianz Arena, Bayern Munich and Bochum square off in a David versus Goliath match. The Bavarians needed a victory against Wolfsburg badly, and they were able to do so, ending their three-game losing streak in the Bundesliga.
Joshua Kimmich, a midfielder, is suspended for one game; Daley Blind is set to fill in. Sadio Mane, Dayot Upamecano, Manuel Neuer, Lucas Hernandez, Eric Choupo-Moting, and all of those players are still in the recuperation area.
However, given their brilliant home record of 2022–2023 season, anything more than a simple home win would be a significant surprise.
But Bayern Munich has played 14 home games in the Bundesliga, failing to keep a clean sheet in any of these games, but in six of the last eight games, the opposition have at least scored once on the other end.
But, In the first half of the season Bayern Munich rolled over Bochum 7-0.
In the meantime, Bochum shone in a 5-2 victory over Hoffenheim in front of home supporters. Defender Cristian Gamboa and goalkeepers Michael Esser and Paul Grave are out due to injuries.
It would be an understatement to say that Bayern Munich has been in outstanding form lately on their home field, where they have won all 20 games.
Bochum, in comparison, has lost 14 of its previous 21 away games at this level, with this encounter from earlier this year accounting for their most recent road defeat.
Bochum hasn’t kept a clean sheet on the road very often, with the net bulging at both ends in seven of their last 14 away games against Bayern Munich.
