Bochum vs RB Leipzig – Prediction, and Match Preview

Bochum vs RB Leipzig – After defeating Cologne 0-2 in the opening round of the Bundesliga 1, VfL Bochum will be seeking another success.

VfL Bochum had 37% of the control in that game and 9 shots on goal, three of which were on target. Erhan Maovi (76′) and Kevin Stöger (9′) scored goals for VfL Bochum. Five of Köln’s 11 attempts on goal were on target.

The number of outcomes with a nil in them is a recurring trait of more recent VfL Bochum games. Considering their prior six meetings, five of those matches would have resulted in a loss for a wager on both teams scoring. However, there is no guarantee that this trend will persist into the game.

RB Leipzig will be looking to bounce back here after losing their most recent Champions League match against Manchester City.

In that game, RB Leipzig had 33% of the possession and 1 of their 4 attempts on goal were on goal. Manchester City’s opponents made 23 efforts at goal, with 16 of those shots finding the back of the net.

For Manchester City, goals were made by Erling Haaland (22′, 24′, 45′, 53′, 57′), lkay Gündoan (49′), and Kevin De Bruyne (92′).

Goals have been celebrated 21 times in the last six games RB Leipzig have played, giving each encounter a mean average of 3.5 goals, demonstrating their participation in action-packed games. Of the total, 11 were obtained by the opposition squads.
