Bochum vs Freiburg: Preview & Analysis 02/18/2023

February 17, 2023



Game Preview

On Saturday afternoon, Freiburg will visit VfL Bochum in a matchup of two managers from the Bundesliga with various levels of experience. Thomas Letsch, who was hired by Bochum in September after being lured away from Vitesse Arnhem for his first managerial position in the Bundesliga, will square off against Christian Streich, who has been in charge of Freiburg for 12 years.
Last Saturday’s 13th Bundesliga game, unlike the 7-0 thrashing the Bavarians delivered in the rematch in August, concluded in a routine but scarcely demoralizing 3-0 loss away to the division’s defending champions, Bayern Munich. Letsch, a coach in the German top division who also got his start at one of the many football clubs owned by Red Bull, has taken Bochum, a team that had just one point through its first seven games of the season, out of the relegation zone, at least for the time being.
This remarkable turnaround has been supported by a commanding run of play at the Ruhrstadion, where Bochum has won their last five home Bundesliga games while scoring 15 goals in the process. Bochum has been able to move up the standings despite a devastatingly destructive record of giving up penalties. Last weekend, they handed Bayern their 12th penalty of the year, giving the opposition the most in the top five European leagues.

Streich, the team’s talisman, will be back on the bench after serving a one-match ban for two yellow cards he received in Freiburg’s previous away game, a 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Borussia Dortmund. Or, more precisely, he’ll be frantically gesticulating in the technical area. Before the demolition at Dortmund, Freiburg suffered crushing losses in four of their previous five Bundesliga away games against Wolfsburg (6-0), RB Leipzig (3-1) and Bayern Munich (5-0).
Freiburg enters the weekend in fourth position despite their recent troubles on the road, which would be the team’s best Bundesliga finish since finishing third in 1995, when Streich was still playing for city rivals Freiburger FC. Bochum has scored in each and every home game they have ever played against Freiburg, despite Streich’s team having the joint-most clean sheets in the Bundesliga.
