Now out of the running to win the Bundesliga, Dortmund can secure second spot in the division when they entertain Bochum at Signal-Iduna-Park.

With no silverware to show, it hasn´t been the best of seasons for BVB but they will be expected to get back to winning form following a 3:1 loss at champions Bayern last weekend. 

Dortmund returns to home soil having won just 2 of their last 5 league matches but their form at Signal-Iduna-Park has been strong over the past year or so with Marco Rose´s side winning 16 of their last 19 home league matches since last April. 

Still, more recently, BVB have suffered 3 big home losses against Rangers, RB Leipzig and Leverkusen with 13 goals leaked in those 3 defeats but Bochum are unlikely to offer a repeat of those escapades with the visitors losing 10 of their 15 away matches this season.

Dortmund only managed a draw when these sides met in Bochum earlier this season but at home, you would expect Rose´s faltering and somewhat depleted side to still have enough to secure a runners up spot in the Bundesliga. 

Ultimately, a home win seems likely and goals should be expected with a remarkable 58 goals scored in Dortmund´s 12 most recent home matches (all comps). That´s an incredible average of 4.8 goals per game. 11 of those matches saw at least 3 goals scored while 6 of the last 7 saw over 4.5 goals scored.

As such, we´ll take a chance on a home win with over 2.5 match goals with Bochum conceding at least 2 goals in 7 of their 10 away defeats this season

Final score 3:1
