Dusseldorf vs Bochum – 2. Bundesliga: The Leaders want to respond well to a loss against the penultimate place.
The Leaders are currently the best team in the league playing at home, having a record of 9 victories, 3 draws and 2 losses in that condition.
With some undefinition in terms of results on their last couple of matches, with a record of 4 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss, Dusseldorf wants to react to the loss suffered against Darmstadt, on a match they still lost despite having dominated most of it.
With the last match in mind, this time they will want to start this match in control, and at home, they count with an attack that knows how to score, having scored 25 of their 46 total goals at home, and only failing to score on 1 occasion at home.
Their defence is somewhat permeable, and they tend to concede goals, with 17 goals conceded in 14 matches, and the team only keeping a clean sheet on 4 occasions at home.
I see Dusseldorf taking advantage of Bochum’s slower starts, that normally concede the 1st goal, trailing at half-time in 9 of their 14 away matches.
Bochum is on a more positive period than their opponent. However, it isn’t on their matches away from home where they obtain their best results, which means they have the fact that Dusseldorf usually concedes at home as a point in their favour.
Conceding during the first half is Bochum’s great problem. However, only 11 goals scored are very little for an average of 0.79 goals scored per match, and away from home they’ve failed to score in 6 of their 14 matches.
Their defence performs worse on the road than at home, and their average of goals conceded per match is 1.36, already having conceded 19 goals so far.
That way, I think that Bochum has the opportunity to score against Dusseldorf, and since they are motivated, thanks to their recent results, they will try to win here.
Dusseldorf vs Bochum – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With a Dusseldorf wanting to cement their lead and react to the loss they’ve suffered against Darmstadt, they will want to come into this match and take advantage of Bochum’s weaknesses playing away from home,
so I think that, if they approach this match seriously, they will win it.
Dusseldorf’s win at 2.05 odds in my opinion has a lot of value, and that will be my selection here.
Other very good odds are the 2.6 odds for Dusseldorf to win at half-time: 64% of times Bochum is losing at half-time, and 52% of times Dusseldorf is winning at half-time.
