Wolfsburg will be looking to kick on following their return to winning ways after the international break last weekend. However, they could face a tricky challenge on Saturday as they come up against a Bochum side that have been difficult to beat in the Bundesliga this term.
A tricky fixture to call in the Bundesliga this weekend will see Bochum host Wolfsburg. Both sides will be relatively pleased with the way that they have started the new season, but something will need to give this weekend. Wolfsburg comes into this match sitting eighth in the standings, but they will take confidence from the fact that they ended a four-game winless run by claiming victory in their previous match.
That return to winning ways was exactly what the team needed, and it has helped Wolfsburg close the gap on the top six to four points. The German side were great value for their victory last weekend, as they recorded a shock 2-1 success against RB Leipzig. Jonas Wind opened the scoring after just nine minutes, before the winning goal was netted by Rogerio with just over 20 minutes remaining.
Bochum will have the home advantage this weekend, but they will desperately be looking for maximum points to aid their fight against relegation. The German side has been short on victories to this point, as they have won just once in their opening 12 matches. However, they have played out a Bundesliga-high of seven draws.
Bochum comes into this weekend after going four matches without defeat, but three of their results over that period have ended in draws. The most recent of those was a fairly uneventful 0-0 stalemate against Heidenheim last weekend.
Bochum vs Wolfsburg Head to Head
Wolfsburg has landed victories in each of their previous two matches against Bochum, which includes a 5-1 victory in this exact fixture last term. In total, Wolfsburg scored nine goals and conceded just once in the league meetings between these sides last term.
Bochum vs Wolfsburg Prediction
Bochum have been incredibly hard to beat this term, but their run of draws is likely to catch up to them. Therefore, we will be siding with Wolfsburg landing maximum points this weekend, as they chase a fifth win in six against their German rivals.
