Relegation-threatened Bochum will attempt to claim their first win in over two months when they play host to Hoffenheim on Friday.

Match Stats

The first of Bochum’s last four matches that could save their Bundesliga status will be up this Friday as they host Hoffenheim. With 27 points, Bochum occupy the relegation playoff position while Hoffenheim are just six points below European football slots. This will be Bochum’s penultimate home match and they’ll want to bag maximum points from it. Their final home game comes with no guarantees, as they play the champions, Bayer Leverkusen. Bochum aren’t in great form coming into this encounter; they haven't won any of their last eight matches. The 1-0 loss to Wolfsburg in their last game was the sixth defeat in those eight matches. In the last 12 matches, Bochum’s only win was against former champions Bayern Munich. That 3-2 win was however one of the eight matches in 12 that they’ve conceded at least two goals in. Their last 15 matches have returned just one clean sheet. The hosts have a positive to focus on, in the fact that they’ve failed to score in just two of their last 14 matches.

Hoffenheim haven't won a lot of their recent matches either. However, in beating Borussia Monchengladbach 4-3 last time out, they boosted their hopes for Europe. Another win here could see them leap from ninth to seventh in the standings. They have 39 points with four matches to go and will hope to bag three points here, with some tough matches coming up. In two of their final three matches, Hoffenheim will be facing sides in the top four race. Having lost four of their last six matches, we can’t say Hoffenheim will be very confident coming into this game. Their scoring form will however breed a lot of hope ahead of this encounter. They failed to score in just two of their last 13 matches but in 26 matches, they have no clean sheet. Hoffenheim have played 32 matches across all competitions this season, and they managed just one clean sheet. That came in a 2-0 away win over Union Berlin in September. In their last six away matches, both teams got to score.

Prediction: Frosinone
