  • Venue: Vonovia Ruhrstadion

Bayer Leverkusen will be looking to maintain their hopes of finishing the season without defeat when they travel this weekend to the Vonovia Ruhrstadion where they will take on Bochum.

The hosts have made it a habit of narrowly escaping relegation in recent years. Heiko Butscher’s side finished the 2022-23 campaign just four places above the bottom three, while the previous season, they finished nine points above the relegation places. At the moment, the Undescendables sit above the drop zone, but they aren’t quite safe yet as just four points separate them from Mainz who are in 16th.

Bayer Leverkusen had their treble dreams on the ropes in the Europa League in midweek when they went two goals down against Serie A side Roma on home soil. Xabi Alonso’s side once again showed why they are the Bundesliga champions - drawing the game to book a place in the final and also extend their unbeaten run for the season to 49 games.

Betting Tips Bochum vs Bayer Leverkusen: Leverkusen to win & Both teams to score

Bochum picked up some massive wins against Hoffenheim and Union Berlin in their last two games and have also been great at home lately. Heiko Butscher’s side lost just two of their last 13 games at the Vonovia Ruhrstadion and also achieved a 3-2 win over Bayern Munich in that spell. However, the Undescendables will be facing the champions Leverkusen, who are yet to suffer a defeat in all competitions this season.

Goals have been the major headline in the recent games of Bochum. Each of the last two produced at least five goals and both teams scored in 13 of their last 14 matches.
