Bochum banked all three points against the Eintracht Frankfurt in a 3-0 victory on Saturday, at Vonovia Ruhrstadion. Bochum arrived at the match looking to pick up more points, following defeat to RB Leipzig whilst Frankfurt were coming from consecutive wins against Union Berlin and Stuttgart. Bochum are currently 18th with 4 points from 9 matches, while Frankfurt sit in 7th, with 14 points from 9.

After an uneventful first half, Bochum piled on the pressure in the second and were rewarded, thanks to a goal from Philipp Hofmann on the 71 minute mark. Bochum looked to have the match under control when they scored again and increased their lead, thanks to a goal from Evan N`Dicka, 87 minutes in to establish a 2-0. They then extended the lead with a goal from Philipp Forster just before the full time to give a final score of 3-0.

Substitutions for Bochum included Kostas Stafylidis, Christopher Antwi-Adjej, Silvere Ganvoula and Jordi Osei-Tutu for Patrick Osterhage, Simon Zoller, Philipp Hofmann and Gerrit Holtmann, respectively. Frankfurt replaced Timothy Chandler, Sebastian Rode, Daichi Kamada, Christopher Lenz and Faride Alidou with Kristijan Jakic, Djibril Sow, Mario Gotze, Luca Pellegrini and Jesper Lindstrom.

There were bookings for Simon Zoller and Ivan Ordets from Bochum. For Frankfurt, Eric Ebimbe saw yellow.
