Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Saturday’s football game at BayArena pits together Bayer Leverkusen and Bochum, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2021/22 Bundesliga season. Bayer Leverkusen are eyeing a place in the Champions League, while Bochum’s main goal is to secure the elite division survival. Gerardo Seoane’s troops are still without key attacker Patrik Schick, with Alario, Bellarabi, Aranguiz, Fosu-Mensah, and Bakker missing out with injuries as well.
Bochum, on the other hand, are tough to beat at home, but seeing that they have already suffered five defeats on the road, we are tempted to put our money on Bayer this time out. The likes of Holtmann, Blum, Tesche, Weilandt, and Zoller are out of contention through injuries for the visiting team. In their last meeting at the venue, back in August 2009 Bayer Leverkusen defeated Bochum 2-1.
