Bochum comes from a goalless draw away from home against St. Pauli last weekend. The game itself wasn’t very interesting with the teams really sharing the ball possession and number of chances created.
The side has one defeat in the last five rounds, deserving their position in the middle of the table.
Union Berlin got the much needed 3:0 win at home over Magdeburg last weekend, as the side now stands just a point below the second and direct promotion placed Paderborn.
Only a victory suits them, as the team needs a three-pointer here in order to keep the chances and rely on the Paderborn’s game during the time.
The hosts will miss defender Leitsch (8/0), right backs Gyamerah (25/0), Celozzi (21/0), defensive midfielder Janelt (9/1) and forward Kruse (14/1) due to injuries. The team from Berlin should have no fresh injury worries.
Bochum has nothing to play here for, but their own pride. Knowing that defeat is likely for them – however not without attacking. The side did really well recently in attack at home and this match should be no different.
Union Berlin has everything at stake, but also not that reliable performances on the road. Bochum not to surrender that easily in an open clash is my call.
