Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Leipzig and Bochum go head to head in a David-vs-Goliath clash at Red Bull Arena on Saturday afternoon. The Red Bulls are eyeing a spot in the Champions League, while Bochum’s main goal is to secure yet another Bundesliga survival. As Leipzig produced a fine display in a 2-2 draw with reigning champions Bayern Munich at the weekend, home win should be considered. Keep in mind, though, that all Willi Orban, Benjamin Henrichs, and Dani Olmo remain on the sidelines with injuries.
The visitors, on the other hand, conceded ten goals in total in back-to-back defeats to Bayern Munich (0-7) and Borussia M’gladbach (1-3), which is yet another reason why we are going to bet on the hosts. All Matus Bero, Luis Hartwig, Michael Esser, and Lys Mousset are out of contention through injuries for the visiting team, while Luis Hartwig is a major doubt.
Highlighted Player (Timo Werner):
Timo Werner is a German starlet, who began his senior career at Vfb Stuttgart. The German forward, who was born in Stuttgart on March 6, 1996, scored 13 goals in 95 appearances in the league for Die Schwaben and in 2016 he moved to fellow Bundesliga side Leipzig and he impressed with the Red Bulls in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign, scoring 21 goals in the process.
To make things even better for the talented attacker, he represented Germany at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup and it has to be noted that he provided an assist for Lars Stindl in the title game. Despite the fact that coach Joachim Low rested star players at the tournament in Russia, the Germans eventually won the trophy.
Timo Werner played for the Germany U17 team as well and he won the silver medal with die Mannschaft at the 2012 UEFA European Championship. His main position is centre forward, but he is used as a winger as well. Timo Werner’s contract with Leipzig should expire on June 30, 2020.
