Germany – 2.Bundesliga
Date: Monday, 30th October 2017
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Vonovia Ruhrstadion (Bochum).
These are troubled times at Bochum as yet another defeat on the weekend pushed them further closed to the relegation waters. The narrow 1-0 loss at Braunschweig is their fourth defeat in six games and their gap with danger zone is cut short to a slender 3 points.
Bochum struggled for consistency throughout the campaign, but they are slightly better while playing in front of the home crowd. The last two at the Ruhrstadion are wins and overall there are 3 wins from the 5 home matches. The away form is extremely poor as only 1 win came from the 6 matches and they lost in 4.
Fortuna Dusseldorf are enjoying the life at the top of the table, but they have only a slim 2 point cushion over second placed Holstein Kiel. They defeated Darmstadt last week to pick the fifth win on the bounce.
The current leaders also boast of the best defensive record in the league having conceded just 10 goals from their 11 matches so far.
