Bochum vs Hertha: prediction for the Bundesliga match
Bochum suffered four defeats to Hertha in four most recent head-to-head matches and will face the opponent once again in the fourth round of Bundesliga on September 12. Will visitors pick up first points in the season? The answer is in our prediction.
After three rounds Bochum have three points, they are currently on 11th spot in the standings. Thomas Reis' men looked well in all three matches - an away defeat to Wolfsburg (0:1) and a defeat to Koln (1:2) in the most recent round proved that team will fight until the end in every match, so it will be hard for any team to beat Die Unabsteigbaren. This statement was proven in the second round match against Mainz, they were beaten at their home by Bochum (2:0).
Hertha took off to a terrible start in the current Bundesliga season, they picked up no points so far, so Pal Dardai's team is currently at the bottom of the standings. Club was beaten by Koln in the first round (1:3), then they were defeated by Wolfsburg (1:2) and they were demolished by Bayern (0:5) in the most recent match. Capital club has a number of injuried players in their squad, now Stefan Jovetic and Davie Selke are added to the list. It will decrease the offensive potential of Berlin team, because Krzysztof Piatek is still injured.
Two out of seven most recent matches of Bochum ended with that score
In five most recent away matches club scored three goals after the half-time
In each of five most recent home matches club scored after the half-time
Bochum also have a number of injuried players, so both teams will play with weakened line-ups. All star players of the visitors' offensive line are unavailable now, so it will be hard for Hertha to avoid another defeat. Capital club performed well in each of their matches, with the exception of the most recent game against the champion, in which they were completely destroyed. Now they are in a desperate need of points, so in our opinion, they have no choice but to play offensively.
Hosts, on the other hand, will try to find their chance on counter-attacks, so we can expect a tough clash. Visitors are more motivated and class of their players is higher, so we think that Hertha will pick up first points in this game.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (0) on Hertha

Berlin team won four most recent head-to-head matches and in each of them they scored at least two goals. Even without a number of offensive players, Hertha have a great chance to score in an upcoming game. As for Bochum, team rarely leaves the field without a goal in a home game, so we are expecting goals from both sides.
Our second bet is on both teams to score
