Bayern Munich: World-Class Team

The reigning champ trailed Union by five points after a shock 1-0 defeat to Augsburg after seven games but recovered ground to lead the standings at Christmas. However, three straight 1-1 draws against RB Leipzig, FC Koln, and Eintracht Frankfurt to start 2023 have allowed the chasing pack back in the game. Just six points separate the first six teams in the standings, and the title race is getting more and more entertaining.

The Bavarian Giants lost captain and goalkeeper Manuel Neuer to a season-ending leg break, while head coach Julian Nagelsmann has Champions League and German Cup commitments to factor into the equation. However, Bayern Munich has moved to plug the gap left by signing Gladbach’s goalkeeper Yann Sommer. On top of that, the second high-profile signing over the winter, Manchester City loanee full-back Joao Cancelo, has hit the ground running for the record champions.

The host is unbeaten at home this season and should easily win this clash, so we will include it in our soccer picks and parlays. Sadio Mane has resumed training after recovering from his ankle injury, but we don’t expect him to start on Saturday because this is considered an easy match. All Lucas Hernandez, Noussair Mazraoui, and Ryan Gravenberch remain in the infirmary.

Bochum: Awful on the Road

Bochum’s objective this season is to avoid relegation, but it will be a very difficult goal to achieve. The Blues have appointed Thomas Letsch as their new head coach on a two-year deal following the dismissal of Thomas Reis after their promotion-winning coach picked up no points in the first six games of the season.

He has the experience needed in professional football and can form a team with a clear structure and style of play. On top of that, he has always promoted the development of young players at his former clubs. As a result, the team has improved under its new manager, sitting 15th in the standings, three points above the relegation zone.

Bochum won its previous five home games but lost nine of 10 road games. It looks like its approach is simple: avoid relegation by focusing on the home games. The Blues know that Bayern Munich is way above them quality-wise. Of course, they will play their chance, but there’s no way we will see an upset here, so if you’re betting online, you should keep fading them on the road.

Bayern vs Bochum Head-to-Head

Bayern has been the dominant force in the history of this match-up. Their last match, back in August 2022, ended in a highly motivating 7-0 win for Bayern. This is not the first time Bayern scored seven against Bochum. Since its promotion to Bundesliga, Bochum allowed 18 goals in three head-to-heads against The Bavarian Giants.

Bayern is unbeaten on home soil this season, winning five of nine games and scoring 28 goals in the process.
