VfL Bochum will visit Augsburg’s WWK Arena this Saturday with both teams hoping to enter the international break on a high. Augsburg will go into the match looking to grab their first win in eight matches, whereas Bochum will look for back-to-back wins for the first time since May.
Augsburg’s draw with Union Berlin in midweek may have seemed like a smash-and-grab to outsiders as their miserable winless run extends back to the start of October, so naturally a match against the high-flying Union ought to have been a procession for Urs Fischer’s title challengers.
When Sheraldo Becker took advantage of Rafal Gikiewicz’s inexplicable attempt to chase a loose long ball, Bundesliga fans would be forgiven for thinking it would be another one of those days for Augsburg.Instead, Die Fuggerstadter nabbed a goal back straight away from a set piece thanks to the head of Florian Niederlechner.
They withstood the pressure from Union in the second half, and, through attacking potency of the roaming Niederlechner, Ermedin Demirovic and Mergim Berisha, allowed Augsburg to get a foothold in the match. The equalizer came from the instincts of Niederlechner, who Union struggled to mark during the whole game.
Meanwhile, Augsburg will be up against a Bochum team on a massive high after their 2-1 victory over Borussia Monchengladbach when, after bagging two goals in the first 12 minutes against Daniel Farke’s side, Bochum pushed through to secure their third win of the season.
No Bundesliga fan can miss the fact that Bochum sit 17th in the league, stringing together 10 defeats in their opening 14 fixtures. Conceding 36 goals in the process, head coach Thomas Letsch has largely failed to stop the rot left by his predecessor Thomas Reis, and Der Blau have been battered and bruised by their competitors as a result.
If they can get their striker Philipp Hofmann more into play and take advantage of Augsburg’s inability to hold possession, there will be a chance that Die Unabsteigbaren can ascend away from home on Saturday. Unfortunately for Bochum, Augsburg’s attack has undoubtedly been one of their strengths this season.
