THE PREDICTION

Bochum and Koln suffered contrasting emotions in the midweek’s DFB-Pokal action, the former beating Mainz, whilst Koln were knocked out on penalties by 2. Bundesliga side Hamburg. The visitors travel to Vonovia Ruhrstadion having been in superior league form, however it remains to be seen how much of an effect playing an extra 30 minutes against Hamburg had on Koln from a physical perspective. Bochum have benefitted from more of a rest and the likelihood is that they start to dominate proceedings the longer this match goes on due to superior fitness levels, so backing Bochum to come out on top here and secure their third straight home win in all competitions has to be favoured.
