Bochum vs Duisburg Predictions and Match Preview

Bochum vs Duisburg
Germany – 2. Bundesliga.
Date: Tuesday, 29th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Vonovia Ruhrstadion (Bochum).

Duisburg is just the shadow of their past at the moment. The team that finished 7th in the second division are fighting for survival this season. They have an active 4 match losing streak in the league and have conceded 13 goals in that period.

This is no surprise because they have given away more than 30 goals in 18 games so far. There is no other team that has lost 11 matches till now apart from the team managed by Torsten Lieberknecht. It’s still early in the season and since the league is tightly packed they Torsten’s men still have the opportunity to turn the tide around.

A 7 match unbeaten run was going on for them in matches on the road, that ended with the loss to Heidenheim. Apart from that 4-1 defeat, they kept a clean sheet in 3 previous matches on the trot.

The hosts are also coming at the back of a loss at home to St Pauli. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of their recent 5 home fixtures. Clean sheets are rare for them in recent games as well. But in terms of points, they are miles ahead of their opponents for Tuesday.

As far as stats go, we may be in for a high scoring game at Bochum, with the hosts having a clear advantage.

Bochum vs Duisburg: Prediction

The visitors conceded in 6 of theri9 previous matches on the road. They have given away a total of 33 goals so far, so they may repeat it again in this game as well. Meanwhile, the hosts have also given away goals in 4 of their last 5 league games. Since the h2h matches also give a similar trend, we can bet on both teams scoring with 1.90 odds.

In the 10 league matches played by the Zebras, the final score had more than 2.5 goals. The same can be viewed in half of Bochum’s games also. Also in the 3 recent home matches of the hosts, we can see a similar score. Thus I recommend betting on more than 2.5 goals with 1.90 odds.
