• Bochum are unbeaten in their last eight league games.
  • Bochum have kept clean sheets in five of their last six league games.
  • Osnabruck have only won one of their last six league games.
  • Osnabruck haven’t won any of their last three competitive matches against Bochum.

Bochum look full of confidence

Osnabruck played out a goalless draw at Stuttgart last time out and now sit 5pts above the relegation zone, while Bochum won 2-0 at home to St. Pauli, sit 8th in the table and are unbeaten in their last eight league games.

The last three league meetings between these two clubs have produced one draw and two wins for Bochum, with that stalemate arriving when the pair locked horns for their reverse league fixture in November. The visitors head into Saturday’s clash as the form favourites with three wins and three draws from their last six games, as Osnabruck have only managed to win one of their last six outings, losing twice and drawing on three occasions.

Defeat for the hosts could see them dragged into the relegation battle

The hosts have dropped points in ten of their 15 home games this season and Bochum have earned points in eight of their 14 away trips, so you can see why we have predicted that the visitors will leave Osnabruck with either a draw or a win.

Under 2.5 goals have been scored in 57% of Bochum’s away games this season and the visitors head into Saturday’s match having kept clean sheets in five of their last six league games. The Bochum defence looks full of confidence having only conceded one goal in the last six matches but some improvement is needed at the other end of the pitch as their last three away games have all ended goalless.

The visitors’ defence has proven hard to penetrate of late

In terms of a final scoreline, we’re predicting a 1-0 win for Bochum as we have faith that Ganoula and co will take at least one of their chances in Osnabruck. The double chance bet covers both the draw and the away win this weekend and that is the most sensible bet to make as both teams have drawn three of their last six league games.
