VfL Bochum vs. Borussia Dortmund: Match Preview, Where To Watch Live Bundesliga, August 26, 2023

The Bochum team will challenge the Borussia Dortmund team in a Matchday 2 in Vonovia Ruhrstadion Stadium, Bochum on Saturday, August 26, 2023. For streaming coverage of Bochum vs Borussia Dortmund, ​​preview and how to watch it, see in this article.

Bochum will host Dortmund at the Vonovia Ruhrstadion stadium on Saturday 26 August 2023 in the Bundesliga continuation match. Bochum is hoping to bounce back from their 0-5 crushing defeat to Stuttgart in their first match, while Dortmund are looking to continue their good form after their 1-0 win over Cologne.

Bochum is a promoted team that just escaped from relegation last season with 2 points difference from the red zone. However, they did not have good preparation for this new season with only 2 draws and 5 defeats in trial matches. This made them face the new season with a lot of worries.

And those worries became reality when Bochum lost 5-0 to Stuttgart, a team that last season had to play a play-off to survive in the Bundesliga. This result makes Bochum face a big challenge in hosting Dortmund, a team that is one of the champions this season.

On the other hand, Dortmund started the new season perfectly with a 6-1 win over Schott Mainz in the German Cup with complete domination, with 73% possession and 24 shots. The team from Ruhr continued their good form with a 1-0 win over Cologne in the Bundesliga thanks to Donyell Malen’s only goal in the 88th minute.

Dortmund is one of the teams that has strengthened its squad the most in the 2023/2024 summer transfer market. They managed to bring in several quality players such as Donyell Malen, Gregor Kobel, Soumaila Coulibaly and Abdoulaye Kamara.

Dortmund has shown stability in playing style and personnel by winning 8 and drawing only 1 in 9 matches since the summer of 2023 until now. They also have a good record against Bochum winning 6 and drawing 2 in the last 8 meetings between the two teams.

Meanwhile, Bochum lost many important players due to injury in the match against Stuttgart, including Matus Bero (leg muscle), Moritz-Broni Kwarteng (groin), Tim Oermann (groin) and Mohammed Tolba (knee). They also don’t have many options in attack by only relying on Simon Zoller and Gerrit Holtmann.

With the latest conditions like this, Dortmund can fully win a big win to continue to chase Bayern Munich. Bochum will find it difficult to keep up with the speed and creativity of Dortmund, who have many dangerous players.
