Team News: Regensburg
There’s just the lone fitness concern for the Regensburg manager Mersad Selimbegović to be concerned about from a near full-strength group. Benedikt Gimber (Calf Problems) is out of contention. Albion Vrenezi cannot play in this game through suspension.
Team News: VfL Bochum
Bochum manager Thomas Reis has multiple availability issues to deal with. Tarsis Bonga (Patella tendon irritation), Vasilios Lampropoulos (Muscle Injury) and Saulo Decarli (Infection) are those who can’t be considered. Cristian Gamboa will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We’re of the view that Regensburg could well find it tough to see themselves scoring against this VfL Bochum lineup who should manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We therefore fancy a 0-1 winning margin for VfL Bochum at the end of the match.
Will be interesting to see how this one goes.
