Football forecast today for Bochum – Bayern M

Bochum hosts Bayern Munich at the Vonovia Rurhstadion in a match from the second round of the DFB Pokal. Can Bochum trouble the current holder of the trophy? Let’s discuss this during our football forecast for today.

Bochum are currently participating in the German 2. Bundesliga. They reached the second round of the DFB Pokal after a 3-2 win during the visit to Baunatal. The absolute hero for the visitors was the striker from Congo Silvere Ganvoula, who scored a hattrick in this game.

In the 2. Bundesliga Bochum are currently 16th in the standings with just 9 points won, so clearly this is a pretty difficult season for them so far. In 11 games played since the beginning of the campaign, Bochum have won just one game so far. At this moment they are positioned at the relegation playoff spot in the league standings, so it seems that they will have a difficult season.

On the positive note, in their last five games in the 2. Bundesliga Bochum have lost just once – in the previous round against Holstein Kiel. Maybe this is a sign that they are starting to improve, which is really what they need.

How we mentioned, Bayern Munich are the current holders of the DFB Pokal. In the first round the Bavarians visited the former Bundesliga side Energie Cottbus and achieved a convincing 3-1 win. Robert Lewandowski, Kingsley Coman and Leon Goretzka scored for Niko Kovac’ side.

In the Bundesliga Bayern Munich are leaders of the standings with 18 points won so far. In their last game the champions hosted Union Berlin and achieved a surprisingly difficult 2-1 win, thanks to the goals of Benjamin Pavard and Robert Lewandowski clinched the three points for FC Hollywood.

That’s our football forecast for the DFB Pokal game between Bochum and Bayern Munich from the second round of the tournament. We don’t think that Bayern will have much of a trouble in this clash, but who knows?
