Good finish in the last season launched Duisburg to the top half of the table and they finished on 7th place. They were involved in a lot of high scoring matches, John Verhoek and the lads have been pretty productive, while their defence allowed too many goals.

However, they opened the current season with a defeat, but that’s what Duisburg usually do. They failed to a narrow 1-0 defeat away to Dynamo Dresden.

Bochum had a similar season as their opponents and they finished with the same number of points as their rivals. At one point, Robin Dutt’s side fell into results crisis and the relegation zone was very close, but they managed to rise above the troubles and climb up to the 6th position.

Although they haven’t been too efficient, their defence managed to consolidate and do a good job. The visitors also suffered a defeat in the premier round as FC Koln were better than Bochum in a 2-0 win.

Duisburg vs Bochum: Head-to-head

These two sides had a lot of tight clashes in a few past seasons and four of them out of the last seven ended with a draw. Their last three encounters were low scoring ones as the crowd was able to see two goals per match at most.

Duisburg vs Bochum: Prediction

This is going to be an interesting and another tight clash, but the hosts should be a bit closer to the victory. They have been playing a bit better in pre-season matches than their opposition.

Both teams have been involved in inefficient clashes lately and their head to head matches are also low-scoring ones. In this one, we shouldn’t expect to see too much productivity from the strikers and the match should remain under 2.5 margin.
