Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Hoffenheim will be looking to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Borussia M’gladbach when they take on Bochum in the Bundesliga round 2. Hoffenheim did suffer the defeat in their opener, but it has to be noted that defender Stefan Posch was sent off after just 18 minutes. The 25-year-old is banned for Saturday’s clash, while the likes of Angelo Stiller, Benjanim Hubner, and Ihlas Bebou are out of contention through injuries.
Ermin Bicakcic is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. Bochum, on the other hand, suffered a 2-1 loss to Mainz in the opening match of the season. Thomas Reis’ men obviously struggle at the back, and seeing that they are not regarded as good travellers, we are tempted to put our money on the home side this time out.
Highlighted Player (Moanes Dabour):
Born in Nazareth on May 14, 1992, Moanes Dabour is an Israel international who plays for Red Bull Salzburg in Austrian Bundesliga. Dabour played in Israeli clubs Maccabi Nazareth and Maccabi Tel Aviv during his youth career and it has to be noted that he played for the two teams at senior level as well.
In 2014 he joined Swiss side Grasshopper and after scoring 41 goals in 82 appearances in the league for the club, he moved to Austria, signing a deal with big-spending Red Bull Salzburg. In 2017 Moanes Dabour was scoring goals for fun in the 2018/2019 Champions League qualifiers, but that eventually did not help the Red Bulls book their place in the group stages of the elite competition.
Speaking of his international career, Moanes Dabour made his Israel debut against Honduras on June 1 2014. Israel won the game 4-2, but the Salzburg attacker failed to mark his debut with a goal. Dabour opened his goal-scoring account with the Israeli national team in September, 2015 in a 4-0 win over Andorra.
