Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Bayern Munich and Bochum face each other in a David-vs-Goliath clash at Allianz Arena. The Bavarians desperately needed a win against Wolfsburg, and they managed to get one, with the team putting an end to their three-game winless run in the Bundesliga. Midfielder Joshua Kimmich serves a one-match ban, with Daley Blind likely to step up. All Eric Choupo-Moting, Manuel Neuer, Lucas Hernandez, Sadio Mane, and Dayot Upamecano remain in the recovery room.
Meanwhile, Bochum impressed in a 5-2 win over Hoffenheim in front of home fans, but given their poor away record (1-0-9) in the 2022/2023 season, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. Goalkeepers Michael Esser and Paul Grave are sidelined with injuries, as well as defender Cristian Gamboa. In the first half of the season Bayern Munich rolled over Bochum 7-0.
Highlighted Player (Leroy Sane):
Leroy Sane began his senior career at Schalke 04. The pacey winger, who is capable of playing as attacking midfielder as well, made his debut for die Knappen on 20 April, 2014 against Stuttgart. Sane came as a substitute in the second half of the match, replacing Max Mayer 13 minutes before the final whistle.
He scored 11 goals in 47 league appearances for Schalke and on 2 August, 2016 he signed a deal with big-spending Premier League side Manchester City. The former Schalke footballer joined the Citizens on a five-year deal for a fee of £37 million. Sane was born in Essen on 11 January, 1996, but his father is Senegalese.
Souleymane Sane used to play for the Senegalese national football team in the past, while his mother Regina Weber was a rhythmic gymnast. Speaking of his international career, Leroy Sane has 6 caps for Germany U21 and he made his debut for the senior team on 13 November, 2015 in a 2-0 loss to France.
