The Bayern Munich team will challenge the Bochum team in a Matchday 5 German Bundesliga in Allianz Arena Stadium, München on Saturday, September 23, 2023. For streaming coverage of Bayern Munich vs Bochum, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Bayern Munich will host Bochum, a team above the relegation zone, in Week 5 of the 2023/24 Bundesliga. This is an opportunity for the gray Bavarian Tigers to achieve a fifth straight win in all competitions and continue to chase Leverkusen, the team leading the standings.
Bayern have had an impressive start to the season under coach Thomas Tuchel. They only lost once to RB Leipzig in the German Super Cup, and since then are unbeaten in the last 5 matches, with 4 wins and 1 draw. Recently, they managed to beat Manchester United with a score of 4-3 in the Champions League preliminary round.
Bochum, on the other hand, has not tasted victory in the Bundesliga this season. They only have 3 points after 4 weeks have passed, with 4 draws and 1 defeat. They have also been knocked out of the German Cup after losing to newly promoted Holstein Kiel. Bochum is currently only 2 points ahead of the relegation zone and has a goal difference of -5.
The history of meetings between the two teams is also not at all balanced. In the last 34 clashes, Bayern has won 25 times, while Bochum only has 2 wins and 7 draws. At home, Bayern Munich is unbeaten in the last 15 times they have hosted Bochum, with 11 wins and 4 draws.
In the previous season, Bayern had beaten Bochum with a total score of 9-1 after two legs. In the first leg at the Allianz Arena, the ‘Grey Tigers’ won 5-0 with goals from Harry Kane (2), Kingsley Coman, Leroy Sane and Leon Goretzka. In the second leg at Vonovia Ruhrstadion, Bayern Munich again won 4-1 with goals from Kane (2), Coman and Goretzka.
Bayern doesn’t have much concern about the team’s strength in this match. They only lost three players due to injury, namely Manuel Neuer, Raphael Guerreiro and Tarek Buchmann. Coach Thomas Tuchel will also return to lead the team after being suspended in the match against Man Utd.
The former Chelsea and PSG coach will continue to believe in the combination of Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka in midfield, along with a front line consisting of Harry Kane, Kingsley Coman and Leroy Sane.
Bayern has superior team strength, high performance and home advantage. They also have an impressive head-to-head history against Bochum. On the other hand, it is difficult for Bochum to hinder Bayern’s progress in the championship competition.
However, Bochum is also not easy to intimidate, because they always know how to score goals in the last few matches. Therefore, the result will probably be a big win for Bayern Munich even though it is quite difficult.
