RB Leipzig vs Bochum
Germany – DFB Pokal
Date: Wednesday, 3 February 2021
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena.
The Red Bulls are easily the second best team in the whole of Germany at the moment. In fact, they remain the only realistic contender to raise a challenge to the seemingly unstoppable Bavarians, who are on a march to deliver their ninth straight league title.
Going on, they also have conceded the least number of goals of all the teams in the German Bundesliga, and at home they have been a dominant force over the course of the past two campaigns.
They also have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival over the years, and especially so in terms of their goal-scoring.
Meanwhile, Die Unabsteigbaren are from the second division, and this fact alone puts them at a disadvantage this coming match-day.
By the looks of things, expect a Leipzig victory this Wednesday.
Leipzig vs Bochum: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Julian Nagelsmann’s men have a 100% winning record against this foe.
- They have scored two or more goals in all but one match-up till now.
- They have kept clean sheets in all but two encounters so far.
- The combined scorecard of the previous two games at this venue is 5-1, in favor of the hosts.
Leipzig vs Bochum Prediction
The Red Bulls are probably one of the best teams in the whole of Europe at present – evident by their semi-final appearance in the UEFA Champions League the last season.
They were also unbeaten in 12 of their past 14 overall match-ups, and at home they had won 11 of their former 13 appearances. Note that they had also scored two or more goals in nine of the preceding thirteen home fixtures.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in two of their preceding three overall fixtures, and they remained so in four of their past six road trips.
In addition, Nagelsmann’s men also have a 100% winning record in h2h encounters over the years.
As such, expect Leipzig to post a convincing win this Wednesday.
