Bochum vs Freiburg prediction
Takuma Asano could be a key performer on Sunday – Photo by Icon Sport

Player to watch – Takuma Asano

Takuma Asano has scored six times in the Bundesliga this season, making him Bochum’s leading marksman in the division. Each of the Japanese star’s last two efforts were plundered at the Vonovia Ruhrstadion and he could score at that venue again on Sunday.

Asano a strong shot market option

29-year-old versatile attacker Asano is a consistent menace in the final third for Bochum and the forward has been averaging a healthy 2.20 shots per game in the Bundesliga this term. Asano failed to let loose with an effort in only two of his last 14 appearances, so look out for his prices in the shot market on Sunday.
