Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Borussia M’gladbach will be aiming to make amends for back-to-back losses to Union Berlin and Stuttgart when they take on Bochum on Matchday 31. Die Fohlen do not seem to be at their sharpest, but the bookies still see them as favourites to beat Bochum on home soil. Defender Ko Itakura misses out through suspension, while all Manu Kone, Ramy Bensebaini, Marcus Thuram, and Borges Sanchez remain in the recovery room.
Meanwhile, the visitors failed to win the previous five league matches. Bochum are tough to beat at home, but giving their difficulties on the road, we do not believe that the relegation strugglers are capable of spoiling M’gladbach’s party at Borussia-Park. In their last meeting at the venue die Fohlen emerged triumphant, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. All Danilo Soares, Philipp Forster, and Marko Johansson remain in the recovery room.
