Germany – Bundesliga | VfL Bochum VS TSG 1899 Hoffenheim; Saturday, 27 April at 02:30 GMT +8

Bochum, currently 16th in the division, is in the relegation play-off position with four games left to play. Die Unabsteigbaren, on the other hand, have only two points since a 3:2 win against Bayern Munich in February. They are deadlocked with Mainz, who have a superior goal difference and H2H record. Hoffenheim, on the other hand, is in typically inconsistent form, having won four but lost five of their nine most recent Bundesliga matches. Despite their indifferent form, they sit ninth in the division and are safe from relegation. Both Bochum and Hoffenheim have seen BTTS in all but two of 15 home fixtures this season, and both have seen BTTS and over 2.5 goals scored in eight of their last ten away league fixtures. Both sides are very reliable in this market, with Bochum scoring in 66% of all league games and Hoffenheim in 87%.

VfL Bochum manager Heiko Butscher will not have Mohammed Tolba, Niclas Thiede, Michael Esser, and Moritz-Broni Kwarteng available for the match against Bochum. Patrick Osterhage and Christopher Antwi-Adjei are also ineligible due to suspension. Bochum could use a 4-3-3 formation.

Hoffenheim manager Pellegrino Matarazzo faces reduced team options due to injuries to Marco John, Mergim Berisha, and Stanley Nsoki. A 3-5-2 lineup with Oliver Baumann, Ozan Kabak, Florian Grillitsch, Tim Drexler, Pavel Kaderabek, Grischa Prömel, Umut Tohumcu, Andrej Kramaric, Robert Skov, Wouter Weghorst, and Maximilian Beier is suggested.

Predicted lineups:

VfL Bochum

Goalkeeper: Manuel Riemann
Defenders: Erhan Masovic, Bernardo, Felix Passlack, Keven Schlotterbeck
Midfielders: Kevin Stöger, Anthony Losilla, Lukas Daschner
Forwards: Gonçalo Paciência, Matus Bero, Philipp Hofmann
