VfL Bochum
LLLLLL 0

VfL Bochum go into this match after a 0-0 Bundesliga 1 stalemate against Cologne.

It’s been a rare occasion in recent games where VfL Bochum have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that VfL Bochum have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 games, giving up 18 goals on the way. That sort of trend might not follow through here, however.

Pre-game facts show that VfL Bochum:

  • have left without a victory over Cologne in their last 2 league games.
  • are without a home win in the past 3 matches in the league.

During their six most recent matches, Steffen Baumgart's Cologne have converted a total of 12 times thus yielding them the goals scored per game average of 2.

Looking at the pre-match facts, Cologne:

  • haven't been defeated by VfL Bochum when they've played them away from home in the last 2 league matches.
  • are unbeaten in their previous 3 away league matches.

🤜🤛 Head to head

A look at their most recent head-to-head meetings going back to 10/11/2013 shows us that VfL Bochum have won 2 of them and Cologne 3, with the number of drawn results standing at 1.

19 goals were shared by the two clubs in this period, with 8 from Bochum and 11 coming from Köln. That is an average goals per game value of 3.17.

The last league clash featuring these sides was Bundesliga 1 match day 20 on 22/01/2022 which ended up with the score at VfL Bochum 2-2 Cologne.

In that match, VfL Bochum managed 54% possession and 17 attempts at goal with 7 on target. Goals were scored by Gerrit Holtmann (25') and Takuma Asano (70').

At the other end, Cologne got 8 attempts at goal with 3 on target. Timo Hübers (36') and Anthony Modeste (45') scored.

The match was refereed by Matthias Jöllenbeck.

ℹ️ Team News: VfL Bochum

Takuma Asano (Ruptured intraarticular ligament initiation in knee), Konstantinos Stafylidis (Muscular problems), Paul Grave (Shoulder Injury), Jacek Goralski (Muscle Injury) and Dominique Heintz (Muscular problems) will not be taking part for VfL Bochum boss Thomas Reis.

In our view, Bochum could use a 4-2-3-1 system for this one featuring Manuel Riemann, Cristian Gamboa, Tim Oermann, Ivan Ordets, Danilo Soares, Anthony Losilla, Patrick Osterhage, Simon Zoller, Kevin Stoeger, Gerrit Holtmann and Philipp Hofmann.

ℹ️ Team News: Cologne

Due to a completely healthy squad available to choose from, the Cologne manager Steffen Baumgart does not have any fitness worries to report coming into this game.

We reckon that Köln appear most likely to begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 system, going with Marvin Schwaebe, Benno Schmitz, Nikola Soldo, Timo Huebers, Jonas Hector, Dejan Ljubicic, Ellyes Skhiri, Jan Thielmann, Ondrej Duda, Florian Kainz and Steffen Tigges.

⚡ Prediction

We believe that VfL Bochum may well find it hard to get anything against this Cologne side who we reckon should score & stay on top.

We therefore fancy a very competitive encounter with a 0-1 winning margin for Cologne when the referee blows for full-time.

Should be an interesting one.
