VfL Bochum vs Bayern Munich Total Goals 2.5 (Over/Under)
After moving to Bayern for £35 million from Liverpool, Sadio Mane quickly integrated into the team, helping Bayern start the season spectacularly. Despite being a fantastic individual goal scorer, Robert Lewandowski had a reputation for being too static for Julian Nagelsmann’s favored playing style. Bayern appears to be a more fluid offensive unit with Mane at the front line.
World-class athletes at their most selfless were on display in Bayern’s opening league victory. However, Serge Gnabry chose to square the ball several times rather than shoot himself, most remarkably when Muller missed a clear goal and Mane scored a trademark diving header on his Bundesliga debut.
It’s true that it became simpler to play with liberty after Joshua Kimmich and Benjamin Pavard had given the guests a two-goal cushion with two great strikes in the early exchanges. In the 2021–22 Bundesliga season, Bochum also only triumphed four times away from home, but one of those victories was a 2-1 victory at Hoffenheim, and the visitors also defeated Die Kraichgauer 2-1 on their ground in a memorable double.
Reis’s team may very well find themselves close to the dreaded dotted line in the upcoming weeks, and only one of their away games from last season saw them keep a clean sheet. The top team Bayern Munich and last season’s surprise SC Freiburg are still to come before the end of the month.
VfL Bochum vs Bayern Munich Team News
- VfL Bochum
Left-back Kostas Stafylidis has reported a muscular issue since the loss to Mainz, and the visitors are also without Jannes Horn, Jacek Goralski, and Patrick Osterhage. Dominique Heintz, a 28-year-old defender, signed by Reis from Union Berlin, has strengthened the backline, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him make his debut right away.
Danilo Soares, another left-back, is recovering from a hip injury, so Reis will probably turn to right-back Saidy Janko to make up the shortfall on that side of the defense. Following a minor knee injury, Bochum may also be without Gerrit Holtmann, which means Jordi Osei-Tutu, an ex-Arsenal player, will start this weekend.
- Bayern Munich
It is quite doubtful that Nagelsmann will alter the starting lineup that thrashed Leipzig 5-3 and Frankfurt 6-1 in the first few weeks of the season. That implies new hires. Although Nagelsmann gave Matthijs de Ligt, Ryan Gravenberch, and Noussair Mazraoui their Bundesliga debuts last Friday in Frankfurt, the three are expected to sit on the bench once more.
Leon Goretzka will not be playing due to a knee injury and will be replaced in the middle of the field by Marcel Sabitzer while Kingsley Coman is still on suspension. Leroy Sane will come off the bench once more, although Musiala is favored as a member of a thriving attacking unit.
