We draw the attention of our readers to the exclusive prediction for the match Bayer – Bochum, the opponents will play in the 17th round of the Bundesliga.

Bayer has a strong streak

The “Pharmacists” started this season very poorly, they had to get out of the bottom of the table. Bayer are now on a four-game winning streak in the league which has moved them up to ninth in the table. The return after the break turned out to be successful, as they managed to beat Borussia Mönchengladbach on the road with the score 3:2. We still have half of the tournament distance ahead of us, and the gap to the top six is ​​seven points. Two players will leave the upcoming battle due to damage.

Bochum does not want to say goodbye to the elite

Bochum have to fight for survival this season as the club sits 14th in the table just one point clear of the relegation zone. The team is showing a desire to stay in the Bundesliga, as evidenced by a streak of three wins in a row. In the last round, Bochum won 3-1 at home against direct rivals Hertha. The team is now on the move and able to fight any opponent. The club has two personnel losses before this confrontation.

Personal meetings

Last season, the rivals played two matches with low results, Bayer won 1-0 at home and played 0-0 away.

Match prediction

It is striking that both teams are on a good run, Bayer are playing at home and are considered the clear favourites. We also think that the ‘pharmacists’ class is higher, so they should get three points in this battle. The optimal bet looks like a home win bet with a -1 goal handicap.
