Bochum take on the visitors Werder Bremen in the round 5 match of German Bundesliga. The match will be played on Saturday, September 3rd at Vonovia Ruhrstadion (Bochum).
Bochum have the difficult second season in the elite ahead of them. The “Inflexible” quite unexpectedly, after a pause of more than 10 years, were able to return to the top division of the country. And no less sensationally they scored 42 points there, and only in terms of additional indicators they lost to Eintracht and Wolfsburg, limiting themselves to 13th place - not bad for a beginning. But after the holidays, all that Thomas Rice did was defeating the modest Berlin Victoria in the cup. But in the Bundesliga, not a single point has yet been taken. The lost by 1 goal to Mainz (1-2) and Hoffenheim (2-3), after which the team was destroyed by Bayern 0-7. Yes, and with Freiburg, holding out until the break, in the end they didn’t score nor concede.

Werder might well be happy with the start after returning. Today’s visitors spent last season in the Bundesliga 2. But this cleansing went on, such an impression, to the benefit of a glorious team. In the new draw, Ole Werner's wards were able to start well. First on the road there were cup win – 2-1 with Energia. And then they gave out 2-2 with Wolfsburg and Stuttgart, after which they surprised everyone with a super-strong victory over Borussia. In Dortmund, the Werder were down by 2 goals until the 88th minute, but managed to score three times in response! But last Sunday, another spectacular match, already at home, ended in the defeat of Werder Bremen. Having conceded already in the 2nd minute, the “musicians” scored twice in the next quarter of an hour, and in the end it all ended 4-3 in favor of Eintracht Frankfurt. However, even after that, Ole Werner's wards are in the middle of the standings.
Bochum won only 1 head-to-head out of the last 18. Moreover, Werder was able to emerge victorious from all 3 last meetings with this opponent. But it was at the latest within the framework of the Bundesliga draw in the distant 2009/2010 season. Werder Bremen are seen as the favorites for this clash, but can they really justify this status away from home? Still, it is better to use the typical option for visitors with "total over 2.5 goals" for betting.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 scored goals.
