Borussia Dortmund vs Bochum: prediction for the Bundesliga match
Borussia are having a decent season - Marco Rose's team tried to challenge Bayern for the title, but a 1:3 defeat in recent head-to-head match killed the intrigue in the championship race. On the bright side, Borussia are unlikely to lose the 2nd spot, because Bayer are eight points behind.
Bochum have only one objective - to avoid relegation from Bundesliga. Thomas Reis' team are pretty far from the danger zone right now. Die Unabsteigbaren are currently eight points clear of the relegation play-off spot - it will be almost impossible to lose that handicap.
A 0:2 defeat to Augsburg in the previous round became a second consecutive one for them.

In two latest matches Borussia conceded after the half-time
Borussia lost any chance to fight for a title after a defeat to Bayern, but the Bumblebees won't be too upset about it. Borussia tends to play offensively, they are scoring quite regularly, but their defensive game is not perfect, to say the least. Bochum are dangerous on counter-attacks, so we are expecting a high-scoring game today.
Our prediction - total over three goals
A number of Borussia players are injuried, so this game won't be an easy walk for the Bumblebees. Bochum are looking great in matches against German giants this season - they beat Bayern, snatched points from Borussia, so Die Unabsteigbaren should be able to put up a good fight today.
