Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
David faces Goliath at Allianz Arena on Saturday afternoon as Bayern Munchen and Bochum go head to head in the Bundesliga round 5. The reigning champions aim to build on a thrilling 4-1 win over Leipzig, and they are likely to adopt yet another attack-minded approach. Robert Lewandowski, who just can’t stop scoring, will be the man to watch in the home team, while both Serge Gnabry and Corentin Tolisso are likely to miss the game with injuries.
The newcomers, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Hertha, and we do not believe that they are capable of claiming a major scalp on Matchday 5. All Takuma Asano, Cristian Gamboa, Maxim Leitsch, Luis Hartwig, and Paul Grave are out of contention with injuries for the visiting team. This will be the first Bundesliga encounter between the two sides since 2010 when Bayern Munchen defeated Bochum 3-1.
Highlighted Player (Robert Lewandowski):
After scoring 36 goals in 59 league games for Znicz Pruskow, Robert Lewandowski joined Lech Poznan in June, 2008. The 184-cm-tall attacker scored 18 goals in 28 appearances for the club in the 2009/2010 Ekstraklasa campaign and during the season he was on Borussia Dortmund’s radar.
The Polish forward signed a four-year deal with the Bundesliga side in June, 2010 and he quickly established himself as the team’s key attacker. Lewandowski was producing excellent performances with the Millionaires between 2010 and 2014 and it has to be noted that he won two Bundesliga trophies with the club (2010/2011, 2011/2012). He participated in the 2012/2013 Champions League final with Borussia Dortmund, but the Millionaires were beaten by fellow Bundesliga side Bayern Munich in the title game.
However, he betrayed Borussia Dortmund fans in 2014 as he signed a four-year deal with the Bundesliga giants. Lewandowski impressed in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign as he scored 30 goals in 32 league games for Pep Guardiola’s troops. The Polish footballer represented his homeland at Euro 2016 in France and he scored one goal at the showpiece tournament in France.
