Augsburg vs VfL Bochum Match Analysis & Prediction
12/11/2022 5:30 pm
Game week 15 of the Bundesliga will see Augsburg lock horns with VfL Bochum this Saturday at the WWK Arena. Kickoffs on 12/11/2022 at 17:30 EAT.
Augsburg’s draw with Union Berlin in the midweek may have seemed like a smash-and-grab to outsiders – their miserable winless run extends back to the start of October, so naturally a match against the high-flying Union ought to have been a procession for Urs Fischer’s title challengers.
Augsburg shared the spoils 2-2 Bundesliga with Union Berlin in their most recent encoumnter. In that match, 40% possession, seven shots with two of them on target and goals scored by Frorian Nienderlechner (8’ and 39’). Union Berlin got 19 shots with six of them on target and goals by Sheraldo Becker (7) and Kevin Behrens (22’).
Meanwhile, Bochum is currently in the relegation zone (17th position) with 10 points after the 14 matches they have played so far. Having conceded 36 goals in the process, head coach Thomas Letsch has largely failed defensively. Yet a different side to Bochum has emerged in recent weeks; coupled with their shock victory against Union last month, Letsch’s side may finally be showing signs of properly fighting relegation this season.
VfL Bochum will aim for another victory following 2-1 Bundesliga victory over M’gladbacch in their previous fixture. In that match, Bochum had 46% possession, 13 shots with four of them on target and goals by Christopher Antwi Adjei (7’) and Philip Hofmann 12’. M’gladbacch got eight shots with two of them on target.
Augsburg vs. VfL Bochum Head to head
