Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 4/7 @ Pribet

In what could prove to be an action-packed Bundesliga showdown on Saturday afternoon, Bochum will welcome RB Leipzig to the Vonovia Ruhrstadion.

Starting with the hosts, while Bochum might have claimed a stunning 3-2 victory against defending champions Bayern Munich on February 18th, Thomas Letsch’s side came crashing back down to earth last week. Eventually falling to an action-packed 5-2 defeat at the hands of Borussia Monchengladbach, the Blues have recorded just a single win from any of their previous five Bundesliga appearances. However, still holding a commanding eight-point buffer over the relegation zone, Bochum will be excited by their continued success on home soil. In fact, heading into Germany’s festive break with a stellar 3-0 romp against Union Berlin, the former Vitesse boss has not seen his squad suffer a single defeat at the Vonovia Ruhrstadion from their previous eight straight domestic showdowns – a run that stems all the way back to September 30th. It should also be noted, gaining a reputation for their lively outcomes, Letsch’s men have seen all of their last five home fixtures finish with both teams getting on the scoresheet.

As for the visitors, suffering last-gasp heartbreak away at Bayern Munich as they eventually fell to a 2-1 defeat last week, RB Leipzig certainly have the feel of a squad seeking some recent stability. Getting their Champions League knockout stage adventure underway with a 1-0 defeat at home against Spanish icons Real Madrid on February 13th, it has been suggest that Marco Rose could have some mounting pressure on his shoulders. In fact, the Red Bulls have recorded just a pair of victories from any of their previous nine straight appearances across all competitions – a run that stems all the way back to December 16th. With their recent issues underlined by a 5-2 drumming at the hands of Stuttgart on January 27th, Leipzig have also gained a reputation for their extended struggles on the road. Remarkably recording just a single domestic win on their travels since the middle of September, we could be treated to an enjoyable affair here. With all of Leipzig’s last eight away fixtures finishing with both teams finding the net, we are expecting a similar outcome here.

Bet: Both teams to score at Bochum vs RB Leipzig 4/7 for Saturday’s Bundesliga battle @ Pribet
