VfL Bochum will be looking to break out of the Bundesliga relegation zone when they entertain Augsburg at Vonovia Ruhrstadion on Saturday afternoon. While the hosts find themselves two points from certain safety with three matches remaining, the visitors are six points clear of the bottom three.
Bochum are staring down the barrel of relegation following last weekend’s 2-0 defeat at Borussia Monchengladbach, which extended the Blues’ winless run to six games. Having recorded three draws and three losses since their last victory, Thomas Letsch’s men sit second from bottom in the Bundesliga table, three points clear of Hertha Berlin and two points from guaranteed safety.
To make matters worse for Bochum, they have managed to win just two of their previous 12 league matches, taking nine points from a possible 36 since a rare 5-2 thrashing of Hoffenheim back in February.
At the end of the day, it is easy to understand why the Blues find themselves in such a predicament, as they have suffered more defeats than any other side this season, losing 19 of their 31 Bundesliga encounters.
Bochum also possess the worst defensive record in the division, having conceded a disappointing 69 goals this term, while only fellow strugglers Schalke 04 have scored fewer goals than Bochum’s 33.
We say: VfL Bochum 2-1 Augsburg
Given that Bochum must give everything that they have to stave off relegation, we expect the Blues to heap more away-day misery on Augsburg, who are on course to suffer a ninth defeat in 12 outings on the road.
