The Bundesliga game at Vonovia Ruhrstadion this coming Saturday will see visitors Eintracht facing home side Bochum. Bochum lost to 2-1 Eintracht in their last encounter. This served as payback for the 2-0 win, which Bochum dished out the match before that.
With 14 points after eight games, Eintracht currently rank sixth in the Bundesliga standings. Bochum play catch-up as they recorded one points in eight matches, putting them up as 18th before their upcoming clash.
With 5 defeats in the last 6 games, the mood around the Bochum camp could probably be a lot better. They need to up their game or prepare for more disappointment, when facing Eintracht on their home ground.
Bochum are not a high scoring team these days, as they only found the back of the net nine times in the last ten outings. That is an average of just 0.9 goals per game, as they conceded 27 goals. They managed zero clean sheets in these matches.
When it comes to goal-scoring Eintracht are not the most prolific side. They scored a sustainable 19 times in their previous ten matches, making it 1.9 goals per game. They conceded 16 goals for an average of 1.6 a game, achieving a clean sheet in two of these matches.
Bochum vs Eintracht Prediction
A draw is the best Bochum can show from their last three games, where they came up short in a 3-1 defeat against Schalke 04. A1-1 draw with FC Koln followed before they were defeated 4-0 by RB Leipzig. Bochum claimed just a single measly home win from a possible six in the Bundesliga, which also saw them drawing one and losing four matches, in which they scored four and conceded 15 goals.
Bochum were hoping to avoid relegation this season, but their current dismal form has them on course for going down.
Eintracht look well suited to take on any opponent presently, as their last three matches saw them gaining seven points. They ran out 1-3 and 2-0 winners against VfB Stuttgart and Union Berlin, respectively. Their winning streak came to an end against Tottenham, who claimed a point in a 0-0 draw. Eintracht won twice, while also recording two draws, and two defeats in their last six away matches in the Bundesliga. The scoreline from these matches says 11 goals conceded and ten scored.
Qualifying for Europe was a target going into this season, and Eintracht are keeping their eyes on the prize.
Form favours Eintracht for the win a little more than prices with the bookmakers suggests. Even playing on home soil, the bookmakers have placed a little too much faith in Bochum, and we aim for the away win.
