Arminia Bielefeld vs Bochum Prediction
Arminia Bielefeld were in for a shock defeat in their last clash on the road after St Pauli pulled off a stunning 3-0 victory. Despite being tipped as the odds-on favorite in that matchup, the hosts were far from clinical in their shots at goal and subsequently made the trip back home empty-handed.
Be that as it may, the loss was just their second of the campaign. With thirty-four points in the bag, Arminia Bielefeld are still holding on to the top spot with a healthy four-point cushion over second-placed Hamburger.
On the other hand, Bochum will be making the trip to Schuco Arena on the back of a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Regensburg at home. The visitors, disappointingly, have been alternating between wins and losses in their past four fixtures in the second division.
Furthermore, to be frank, the guests have hardly been promising on the road. They have just one measly win from their outings so far and are deservedly one of the worst away sides in the cluster.
It is also worth mentioning that Bochum have been at the losing end in each of their previous three trips here on the trot. Taking into account that the hosts are unbeaten in their last three fixtures at home, it goes without saying that a defeat is certainly looming large for Bochum this weekend.
In addition, Arminia Bielefeld have been caught napping at the back in each of their clashes here. They are yet to keep a clean sheet at home and have conceded eleven goals so far as well.
Meanwhile, Bochum have failed to get their names on the scoresheet just once in their respective outings. Given that their last trip to this stadium also witnessed both teams find the back of the net together, count on the visiting contingent to bag a consolation goal in this one.
