FC Koln vs Bochum – Prediction, and Match Preview

FC Koln vs Bochum – FC Koln comes into this match with a Bundesliga 1 draw score of 0-0 against Union Berlin.

FC Koln had 49% of the possession in that game and made four total attempts, none of which were successful. 2 of the 8 attempts on goal for Union Berlin were on target.

The large percentage of scores with a nil in them is an intriguing characteristic of recent FC Koln matches. Six of the prior six games they had played before this one would have resulted in a loss for a BTTS wager.

VfL Bochum will be looking to rebound here after losing their most recent match in Bundesliga 1 play to Schalke.

VfL Bochum had 63% of the possession in that encounter and none of their four total attempts on goal was successful. Only Manuel Riemann (45′ Own Goal) managed a goal for VfL Bochum.

Ten goal efforts were made by Schalke 04, and two of them were successful. Schalke’s goal came in the 79th minute from Marius Bülter.

The numbers don’t lie, and VfL Bochum has allowed goals in six of their last six games while having 14 goals tallied against them overall.

VfL Bochum needs to improve on some defensive flaws. However, it’s unlikely that trend will persist into this game. In their previous four league games, VfL Bochum had failed to triumph away from home.
