Bochum to Win

Apart from Bayern Munich, Cologne have given Bochum the most torrid time with 33 wins. Despite their struggles in recent years, the Billy Goats cannot arrive in better conditioning with three wins in their last four Bundesliga outings. However, they arrive on the back of two successive defeats, one in the league and one in the DFB Pokal. Injuries was already taking a toll on Steffen Baumgart's men and coupling that with fatigue makes the reading worse for them. On the other hand, Bochum has won two matches in succession at home and should add to their tally to further move away from the relegation slots.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

In their last five outings, Bochum has failed to trouble the scorers on three occasions. The two times they did manage to hit the back of the net, they returned victoriously. Die Unabsteigbaren have only failed to score once in their last nine matches, the period of renaissance that saw them move out of the relegation slots. With Cologne managing a paltry single clean sheet from their 19 Bundesliga fixtures this season, Bochum should get on the scoreboard in this meeting. The Billy Goats themselves will be confident in scoring as they enter this meeting on the back of eight away goals in their last four outings. Given the variables involved, we are confident that BTTS will come true in this fixture.

Bochum vs Cologne: Check out the team lineups

VfL Bochum Predicted Lineup

A slow start to the season raised question marks about Bochum's return to the German top-flight football. They have answered their critics from a position of strength. While their defence has done a better job than teams in the top half of the table, the 17 strikes manager by their attackers remains second-worst in the competition. With the bulk of second yet to arrive, Thomas Reis needs his charges to perform better in the opposition's third or else face a nerve-racking conclusion to the campaign.

Predicted XI: Manuel Riemann; Konstantinos Stafylidis, Maxim Leitsch, Armel Bella-Kotchap, Cristian Gamboa; Milos Pantovic, Anthony Losilla, Elvis Rexhbecaj; Takuma Asano, Sebastian Polter, Gerrit Holtmann

1. FC Cologne Predicted Lineup

Steffen Baumgart can lead Cologne to UEFA competition participation in his first year in charge. It will be a remarkable turn of events as the Billy Goats had managed to stave off relegation thanks to their play-off win over Holstein Kiel. They have earned three wins in their last four Bundesliga outings, slowly cutting down on their negative goal difference. Anthony Modeste has been their destroyer in chief with help from Sebastian Polter.

Predicted XI: Tim Horn; Jonas Hector, Rafael Czichos, Jorge Mere, Kingsley Ehizibue; Ellyes Skhiri, Florian Kainz, Dejan Ljubicic, Jan Thielmann; Mark Uth, Anthony Modeste
