Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
All eyes will be on Vonovia Ruhrstadion when Bochum and Bayer Leverkusen take on each other in the Bundesliga round 29. Bochum aim to build on a 2-1 win over Hoffenheim which saw them climb to 11th place, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Bayer Leverkusen. The hosts are on the right track to secure the elite division survival, and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the match.
All Osterhage, Weilandt, and Tesche are rated doubtful, while the likes of Locadia, Zoller, and Gamboa should miss the game with injuries. The BayArena outfit, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Wolfsburg and Hertha Berlin. Gerardo Seoane’s troops are eyeing a place in the Champions League, and seeing that they want this win more than Bochum, away win should be considered. Fit-again attacker Patrik Schick returns to the starting XI, while Kerem Demirbay is back from suspension.
