Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Buoyed by a thrilling 6-0 win over Hertha, Leipzig will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Bochum at their Red Bull Arena. The Red Bulls are already nine points behind league leaders Bayern Munchen, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the newcomers. Even though Dani Olmo, Angelino, Marcel Halstenberg, and Marcelo Saracchi are sidelined with injuries, we are tempted to put our money on the title-chasing Red Bulls as they are a real force to be reckoned with at home.
Bochum’s main goal is to secure the Bundesliga survival, but that is easier said than done. The newcomers collected only one point from the previous four league fixtures, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Leipzig’s party at Red Bull Arena. All Tom Weilandt, Simon Zoller, Cristian Gamboa, Maxim Leitsch, Luis Hartwig, and Paul Grave are out of contention with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Yussuf Poulsen):
Yussuf Poulsen is a Danish footballer who started his youth career at BK Skjold. At the age of 14 he joined Lyngby and he made his debut for the first team on 4 December, 2011. He came as a substitute in a match against Horsens after 84 minutes, substituting Mathias Tauber. However, he made no more than five league appearances for Lyngby in the 2011/2012 season.
Despite the fact that Lyngby dropped to Denmark 1st Division, Poulsen did not leave the club in the summer transfer window and it has to be noted that he made 30 appearances for the Vikings in the 2012/2013 campaign. On 4 July, 2013 he signed a deal with Leipzig and he has been playing for the German outfit ever since.
The 193-cm-tall attacker is capable of playing as both right and left winger. Poulsen’s father is Tanzanian, but he decided to represent the Danish national team. He made his debut for the senior team against Albania on 11 October, 2014. Poulsen scored his first ever goal for Denmark in a 2-0 win over Serbia on June 13, 2015.
