Wolfsburg’s 3-0 reverse against RB Leipzig last weekend left them just two points clear of the drop zone, though Die Wolfe can strengthen their bid for survival with a win over Bochum on Saturday, who are positioned one place below them in the table.

Bochum have the Bundesliga’s worst away record this season and their poor results on their travels inspired us to oppose them in our top football predictions for Saturday’s fixture.

Wolfsburg vs Bochum prediction
Keven Schlotterbeck could be heavily involved again this weekend – Photo by Icon Sport

Player to watch – Keven Schlotterbeck

Keven Schlotterbeck was the chief protagonist in Bochum’s 1-1 draw with Heidenheim last weekend when the defender scored an own goal and bagged an equalizer in the same sitting, and the 26-year-old could have a big part to play again on Saturday.

Schlotterbeck a threat from set pieces

The 26-year-old Keven Schlotterbeck’s goal last weekend was his fourth of the Bundesliga campaign so far. Indeed, the defender is Bochum’s third-highest scorer in the division this term, and his ability to make first contact on deliveries into the box could make him a threat again in Saturday’s meeting with Wolfsburg.
