Duisburg vs Bochum Prediction & Betting tips
Two losers of the first matchday in the 2nd Bundesliga come together on Saturday in the Schauinsland Travel Arena. On the one hand there would be host MSV Duisburg, who lost to kick-off in Dresden and on the other side of VfL Bochum, who got involved with 1. FC Köln last weekend. Both clubs would not have necessarily lost their games, but are still empty-handed after the first round and want to fill their points account now in Revierderby. In the match between Duisburg and Bochum, at least the betting odds show no real favorites.
Déjà-vu for Duisburg: Again Dresden, again Röser! So the first matchday of MSV Duisburg can be summed up briefly last weekend. As in the previous season, it went to the opening again to Dresden, again lost Duisburg 0-1 and again Lucas Roeser was the scorer. Dresden was the better team especially in the first half and left good chances, but also Duisburg came to his possibilities.
In the second round, they did not miss much to score the zebras, but either Dresden goalkeeper Markus Schubert parried a free kick by Kevin Wolze or John Verhoek struck the crossbar. So it remained in the defeat and the realization that Duisburg had lost for the fifth time in a row a first game in the 2nd Bundesliga. Now there should be something countable at home against Bochum. But especially the home games were at least in the preseason the problem. With a record of just six wins, five draws and six defeats Duisburg finished in the last season only fifteen in the home table. In the final bill, however, Duisburg finished seventh and was tied to the fourth Bielefeld – and also with Bochum in sixth place.
With the 1st FC Cologne VfL Bochum caught on the first matchday of the 2nd Bundesliga probably the toughest opponent in the new season in the lower house. The Billy Goats are the number one pot favorite on the rise. However, it was the Bochumers who set the tone from the beginning. Bochum had four big chances in the first round before VfL put the egg into the nest one minute before halftime.
The possible prompt response even before the break tea failed because the referee denied the Bochumern in stoppage time of the first half a crystal clear penalty. After the break Cologne became better in hot temperatures. At the end it was then a Abstauber to 2: 0, which finally brought Bochum on the losing road. Bochum is now required on Saturday so as not to be without points after two match days. In the last season Bochum was only mediocre away. In addition to five wins and four draws, there were eight defeats. That ended up eleventh in the away table. With only fifteen away goals scored only the SpVgg Greuther Fürth on the opponent’s square rare.
