Jahn Regensburg vs Bochum
German 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 5 April 2019
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Continental Arena (Regensburg).
Jahn Regensburg gave up the potential 3rd-place challenge with a disappointing run of two draws and one defeat in last three league rounds. The streak is pretty hard to explain if we know they had a fairly easy schedule with fixtures against bottom-half sides MSV Duisburg, Greuther Furth and Darmstadt along the way.
Die Jahnelf are now looking towards a somewhat tougher affair scheduled for Friday as they are set to lock horns with mid-table neighbours Bochum. The visitors had a much more challenging streak of games in the last couple of months, but they showed a fine defensive shape keeping clean sheets against the likes of Heidenheim and Hamburger SV of late.
Considering Jahn Regensburg found goals hard to come by of late, we’d not be surprised to see another strong defensive effort from the visitors here.
Jahn Regensburg vs Bochum: Head-to-head
Jahn Regensburg won only one of six head to head clashes with Die Unabsteigbaren.
Three clashes ended in draws, while Bochum picked up two wins in the process.
These two likes produced a six-goal thriller which ended in a 3-3 draw when they met each other in the first part of the season in late-October last year.
Jahn Regensburg vs Bochum: Prediction
Achim Beierlorzer has reasons to be worried for his men’s build up play coming into this fixture with Die Unabsteigbaren. The hosts failed to score more than one goal in last two clashes and they are going to cross paths with a much stronger defensive line this time around.
Bochum did concede at least two goals in each of last five away outings in the league, but this is a perfect opportunity for them to bring such negative trend to an end. They will certainly build on latest fine defensive displays against top-notch sides such as Heidenheim and Hamburger SV. You can have Jahn Regensburg to score fewer than two goals in the match at the odds of 1.83.
