Bayern Munich head into this match following a 0-0 Bundesliga 1 drawn game against VfL Bochum.
Fixtures involving Bayern Munich have proved to be exciting affairs recently with high scoring the rule rather than the exception. Over their past six games alone, a grand total of 32 goals have flown in for both teams combined (at an average of 5.33 goals per game) with 28 of these accredited to Bayern Munich. Such a pattern might not be carried forward into this match, of course.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Bayern Munich:
- haven't been beaten in the league by VfL Bochum in their last 10 matches. Quite a long unbeaten run against them.
- are unbeaten in their last 29 league matches at home. It really has been a fortress.
The numbers tell their own story, and VfL Bochum have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 8 goals in total. Defensively, VfL Bochum seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly.
Going into this one, VfL Bochum are without an away win for the past 4 matches in the league.
Head to head
Delving into their past head to head meetings going back to 14/03/2009 reveals that these fixtures have not been happy ones for VfL Bochum. They have not been able to get themselves any wins whatsoever whereas Bayern Munich have been too good for them, winning in 100% of those games where they have faced each other.
There were also goals galore in those games, with 22 overall which averages out at 3.67 goals per meeting.
The last league meeting between the two was Bundesliga 1 match day 5 on 18/09/2021 when it finished Bayern Munich 0-0 VfL Bochum.
Team News: Bayern Munich
Corentin Tolisso (Calf Problems) and Kingsley Coman (Heart Condition) aren’t available for Bayern Munich gaffer Julian Nagelsmann.
Team News: VfL Bochum
VfL Bochum boss Thomas Reis has to choose a team with limited availability. Cristian Gamboa (Ligament Injury), Luis Hartwig (Tear in the abductor muscle), Takuma Asano (Pulled hamstring at the adductors), Simon Zoller (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Paul Grave (Shoulder Injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
We’re of the opinion that Bayern Munich will, in all likelihood, convert a lot of goal-scoring opportunities.
However, VfL Bochum will not find it easy to score but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be scoring.
We’re therefore expecting to see a fairly comfortable 3-1 winning score for Bayern Munich at the end of this one.
