Bochum vs Mainz
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 6 August 2022
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Vonovia Ruhrstadion.
Bochum have been in great form lately and particularly so in front of their home crowd. They have been finding the back of the net in plenty all through this stretch and have developed quite some momentum as well. Meanwhile Mainz have been finding it hard to show consistency and are also letting in goals in huge numbers.
They are on a long series of poor performances away from home and as mentioned defense has been one area where they have really struggled since the last season.
As the season opens this weekend for them on the road, they are under huge pressure and they desperately hope to avoid embarrassment.
Meanwhile Bochum will place belief in their home performances. Not only have they registered some truly impressive wins at this venue in the last several fixtures but they have posted some good defensive stats as well.
Going on they will be determined to register a far better campaign this time around in the German top flight compared to that of the last season. And on top of that they also have a good head-to-head record against this opponent in the past few years.
For these reasons it is expected that we are about to witness a victory for the hosts Bochum this weekend.
