Bochum vs Osnabruck Prediction

After conceding three goals on the road the last match-day, against Regensburg, Osnabruck showed intent and grit, in making a comeback to record a 3-3 scorecard, and thus share the spoils. On the other hand, Bochum made light work of Nurnberg, with the aid of home advantage, as they cruised to a 3-1 victory.

Home advantage will play a big role in determining the outcome of the match this Friday, especially with the kind of stats Osnabruck have registered on the road. The team is winless in their last five attempts away from home, and in fact have registered a single such win this league season, while scoring the least number of goals away from home.

Meanwhile, keep note that Bochum is unbeaten in front of the home crowd this whole campaign, and for them, taking on a newly-promoted squad might not be that big of a challenge.

Finally, they also hold the upper hand in terms of h2h clashes, and even more so in front of the home crowd.

Analyzing trends, as well as previous history, the likely winner for the day is, Bochum.
