Bochum vs Hamburger SV Prediction
Bochum admitted a second straight defeat in their most recent matchup, with Arminia Bielefeld, after the latter slotted two unanswered goals past them. The hosts have now tasted success just once in their previous four games in the second division, garnering no more than three measly points from a possible twelve.
Miserably, the home team are currently hovering dangerously close to the relegation zone with just twenty points in the bag.
On the other hand, Hamburger SV marked their return to winning ways by running riot over Nurnberg with a whopping 4-1 scorecard in their previous clash at home. Impressively, four different players got their names on the scoresheet for the visitors in that latter matchup.
It is also worth mentioning that the guests have been a force to reckon with on the road this season. At the moment, Hamburger SV are one among the top four away sides in the cluster and have featured at the losing end just twice in their outings so far.
Furthermore, the visitors are unbeaten in their past three visits to this stadium as well. Given the positive run of form that the guests are on, even away from home, Bochum are sizing up to be the underdogs in this one.
However, to be frank, the hosts have been adamant in salvaging at least a point in front of the home crowd this term. They have successfully shared the spoils a total of six times here.
Moreover, the visitors have also been held to a draw on six occasions in their past ten outings. Hence, back a Draw no bet just to be on the safer side.
Additionally, as aforementioned, the home team have not gone down without a fight here. Admirably, they have found the back of the net twenty-three times, which is also the joint highest tally by any side at home as of now.
Meanwhile, the guests have not kept a clean sheet on the road since their 4-0 win over Nurnberg way back in August.
As such, expect both teams to have their names on the scoresheet in this one.
