Meanwhile, the visitors are seeking to move further clear of the relegation zone with a forth successive league win.

After winning three successive Bundesliga matches before the World Cup break, Bayer Leverkusen picked up from where they left off with a 3-2 victory away at Borussia Monchengladbach on Sunday.

Five of Leverkusen’s six victories this season have come under the tutelage of head coach Xavi Alonso, who has helped steer them from the relegation zone to ninth place, sitting six points clear of the bottom three.

Leverkusen are yet to lose at home in the Bundesliga since Alonso replaced Gerardo Seoane in early October, winning three of their four matches during this period by an aggregate score of 11-0.

With 18 league matches still remaining this season, Alonso’s side will hope to build on their positive form as they look to close in on the European spots, and a win against Bochum could move them to within four points of the top six.

With one point to their name and a -19 goal difference after their first eight Bundesliga matches, second-season syndrome appeared to have struck Bochum, and their supporters were fearing for the worst.

However, they ahve since made significant improvements, winning five of their lastt eight league matches, including four on home soil against Eintracht Frankfurt, Union Berlin, Borussia Monchengladbach and Hertha Berlin.

A 3-1 victory over Hertha Berlin was secured last weekend through Philipp Hofmann’s brace and a goal from January loan signing Keven Schlotterbeck, and Bochum have climbed out of the relegation zone up to 14th place, two points clear of the bottom two.

Bochum have lost seven of their eight league matches away from home so far this season, and coming away with maximum points on Wednesday could prove challenging as they have failed to win any of their last six competitive encounters with Leverkusen.

In the 60 previous meetings between these two teams across all competitions, Leverkusen have claimed 29 victories while Bochum have won 18, and they have drawn in 13. Bochum have scored 82 goals and conceded 108 in the process.

Bayer Leverkusen Team News

Bayer Leverkusen’s Charles Aranguiz and Patrik Schick both missed last weekend’s game due to respective calf and groin injuries and will remain sidelined for this contest.

After 10 months out with a ruptured cruciate ligament, Florian Wirtz made his long-awaited return as a late substitute against Monchengladbach, and could be fit to start against Bochum.
