Bundesliga – Match-day 12 Sees Wolfsburg take on Bochum
It’s a clash of fourteenth vs seventeenth, as Wolfsburg host Bochum at the Volkswagen Arena.
It’s 11 points so far for Wolfsburg this season, going into this meeting
A 3rd successive, disappointing result for Wolfsburg will not be acceptable for Niko Kovac’s team. They will see this fixture as an opportunity to turn their form around after drawing 2-2 at Bayer Leverkusen and 2-2 at B Mönchengladbach.
Also, Wolfsburg have developed a habit of drawing football matches this season, which is reflected by their position in the table. Their position is fourteenth in the League and they have 11 points, that is, 2W, 4L and 5D having won two fixtures, drawn five matches, and lost four meetings.
Playing at home, Wolfsburg have won one game, drawn three fixtures, and lost one game.
A win in this fixture would take Wolfsburg’s points to 14 in the League.
Struggling Bochum go to the Volkswagen Arena on Saturday and hope for a positive result
Thomas Letsch 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 Union Berlin and Stuttgart.
Also, these are challenging times for Thomas Letsch’s Bochum, having suffered eight losses in 11 matches, and taking them into relegation territory. This is a run of form that has to be stopped quickly. Now they have 2 matches won, 8 games lost and 1 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in seventeenth place, with a total of seven points having won two fixtures, drawn one game, and lost eight meetings.
Playing away from home, Bochum have lost five matches.
Winning this fixture will see Bochum on 10 points.
Bochum are no strangers this season to illness and injury and Thomas Letsch is concerned that Saturday’s fixture could see him without three of his key players
