BOCHUM

  • Bochum came from 2-0 down to rescue a point thanks to a late comeback at home to Dynamo Dresden last Sunday in their first game under new coach Thomas Reis.
  • Lee Chung-Yong, Tom Weilandt and Maxim Leitsch remain doubtful but young midfielder Ulrich Bapoh is available again after suspension.
  • Danny Blum is expected to be recalled in attack having come on and scored against Dresden but otherwise it is likely to be the same side.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Riemann; Gamboa, Decarli, Lorenz, Danilo Soares; Losilla, Janelt; Pantovic, Maier, Blum; Ganvoula

Doubtful: Lee Chung-Yong (Injured), Weilandt (Injured), Leitsch (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

New Bochum boss Reis will be aiming to improve on his team's terrible away record, which shows just one win from their last 19 league matches on the road. However, it will be a big ask for them to get anything at Sandhausen, who have started the season well and won their last two at home.
