RB Leipzig and Bochum will face in a match of the 7th round of the Bundesliga this Saturday at 19:30 East European Time. The hosts are 10th in the general standings and Bochum is 17th with total active of 4 points.
Leipzig finished second last season, but the team did not start the Bundesliga very successfully. In the first round they lost from Mainz, beat Stuttgart 4-0, and then again lost, this time from Wolfsburg 1-0, until the match with Bayern, where the team lost 4-1 and this further affected the team’s performance in the Champions League.
Manchester City’s class in recent years is more than clear, in addition to the fact that last season the tournament played a final, but Leipzig is also not a team that is content with little and expected a contested match. Leipzig lost to Manchester City with 6: 3, and a few days ago to Bruges with 2: 1 in Germany. It is clear that Leipzig is not in the form in which we are used to seeing him and they will have to make changes in their game in the future.
Bochum is a rookie in the Bundesliga. They have recorded one victory so far, against Mainz and one draw against Stuttgart and are in the penultimate place in the standings. However, this is forgiven, the team has just entered the strongest league in Germany and it will take time to acclimatize. The not very stable defense is impressive, as in the match with Bayern they conceded 7 goals, and in general they have 4 goals scored and 13 goals scored so far.
I think that in this match the better team is that of Leipzig and at home they will try to please their fans with a victory, especially considering the fact that they are already not far behind the leaders in the league.
