Bundesliga action on Tuesday as Bochum and Gladbach meet at Vonovia Ruhrstadion – 8:30pm GMT.

Visitors Gladbach, will be keen to maintain or improve their League position, (eighth), when they face seventeenth placed Bochum.

Struggling Bochum, welcome fancied their opponents this Tuesday

With two wins in a row under his belt, Thomas Letsch takes his Bochum team into this game full of confidence, and hopeful of another successive victory.

Also, when you suffer 10 defeats in the last 13 matches, it should come as no surprise that your team is very much struggling at the bottom of the League. But that is the situation that Bochum find themselves in. Their position is seventeenth in the League and they have seven points, that is, 2W, 10L and 1D having won two meetings, drawn one game, and lost 10 fixtures.

When Bochum host Gladbach, they will do so on the back of two victories, one dart, and three losse on their own ground.

A win in this fixture, would take Bochum’s points from 7 to 10, so far this season.

Going into Tuesday’s game, Thomas Letsch without three of his players, due to illness or injury.

This season’s Bundesliga campaign, has so far seen B Mönchengladbach achieve 19 points

Daniel Farke will hope that success brings further success, as his side look for another win in a row. Their last two outings resulted in victories against Stuttgart and Union Berlin.

Also, league success is all about winning football matches, any way you can, so two losses in three games would not make this a successful season for Gladbach. They currently stand eighth in the League, with 19 points for a total of 5 wins, 4 losses and 4 draws having won five meetings, drawn four fixtures, and lost four games.

Gladbach have had a disappointing run of performances on the road, having drawn four fixtures and lost two meetings of their six League matches away from home this season.

Winning this fixture will see B Mönchengladbach on 22 points.

Good Attacking Performance

They have a good scoring rate of 23 goals (21 from open play and two penalties). Their stand out attacking players have been Marcus Thuram (9), Ramy Bensebaini (5), and Jonas Hofmann (4). Teams that leak goals on a consistent basis, don’t tend to win anything, such is the situation with Gladbach so far, having conceded 20 goals in their last matches so far.

Gladbach are missing four players through injury or illness. This will affect Daniel Farke’s selection choices significantly.
