Bochum vs Sandhausen
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 24 August 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Vonovia Ruhrstadion (Bochum).
One of the two Friday’s matches in German 2. Bundesliga is going to be contested between Bochum and Sandhausen.
Home side has been partially successful in their start of the season as they booked a victory and a defeat in the opening two rounds. They lost to Koln at home, but managed to bounce back away to Duisburg.
Last season, the hosts had severe troubles in the middle of the season, however Robin Dutt’s side managed to improve and finish in the top half of the table.
They’ve been involved in low scoring matches in the last campaign, their attack wasn’t too productive, while the defence did a good job.
In the current one, Bochum continued in the same fashion, and they are looking for another safe finish in the top half of the table, if possible.
Sandhausen are hammered to the bottom of the table after being defeated in both matches this season.
They’ve conceded three times in both matches and Tim Kister and the lads need to work on improving their defensive positioning.
The visitors managed to secure a safe 11th spot last season however they were just three points away from the danger zone.
They’ve also been playing much disciplined and it is very interesting that their defence was the tightest in the league.
On the other hand, their forwards produced the lowest number of goals in the competition.
Bochum vs Sandhausen: Head-to-head
Bochum have been more successful in their recent head to head clashes as they managed to celebrate two times in a row and three times in the last five occasions.
Most of their clashes haven’t been too efficient, however they started to produce more in their latest encounters
Bochum vs Sandhausen: Prediction
Bochum should be able to continue their positive streak against their opponents and book their third straight victory against Sandhausen. The visitors are in a very bad form and home side should take advantage of that fact.
The hosts have been playing pretty tight in the opening two matches and although the visitors’ defence is leaking too much, the crowd shouldn’t be able to see more than two goals in this one.
Bochum vs Sandhausen: Bet Tips
Home win @ 9/10 (1.90)
