Competition: DFP Pokal

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 3/5 @ 888sport

Turning their attention to DFP Pokal duties on Wednesday night, Borussia Dortmund will make the trip to Bochum for what could be a lively affair.

Starting with the hoss, while Bochum might have signed off January with a pair of downbeat displays, Thomas Letsch’s men came roaring back over the weekend. Eventually putting in a rampant performance on home soil as they clinched a stellar 5-2 romp against Hoffenheim, the Undescendables will be desperate to spring a major DFP Pokal upset on Wednesday night. However, still firmly at the heart of a Bundesliga relegation scrap in 2023, the former Austria Wien boss will know that his side faces a real test here. Nevertheless, it should be highlighted that Bochum have received a string of plaudits for their remarkable flurry at the Vonovia-Ruhrstadion. Including a shock 2-1 victory against Union Berlin prior to the World Cup’s festive break, Letsch’s side have won each of their previous five Bundesliga home fixtures by an aggregate score of 15-5.

As for the visitors, putting in another thumping display over the weekend as they claimed a stellar 5-1 romp at home against Freiburg, Borussia Dortmund are enjoying a real purple patch. Continuing on a remarkable post-World Cup flurry, Edin Terzic’s side have won each of their four domestic showdowns since opening 2023 and they’re riding a real wave of momentum. Quickly gaining a reputation for their free-scoring displays in the final third, it should also be noted that the German giants have bagged 13 strikes on their recent four-match winning run. Sat in pole position to gain another automatic Champions League spot this season, Wednesday’s guests will be looking to lay down a major DFP Pokal marker here. However, in a contest that famously produces chances at both ends of the pitch, we’re backing an enjoyable affair from the Vonovia-Ruhrstadion.

Bet: Both teams to score at Bochum vs Borussia Dortmund 3/5 for Wednesday’s DFP Pokal tie @ 888sport
