On February 3, VfL Bochum 1848 and FC Augsburg will square off at the Vonovia Ruhrstadion stadium in Bochum, Germany.
Although they have established a 9-point deficit with Mainz, who are the first team below the dotted line, Bochum is still in 14th place in the league rankings, precisely where they ended the previous campaign. They have already experienced 2 unique seasons. During their first 9 league games, they were winless, which put them in the thick of the relegation fight going into November. But after defeating Darmstadt in their opening league match on November 3, Thomas Letsch’s team picked up 15 points from their next 10 games, which included 4 victories, 3 draws, and 3 defeats. The hosts, who have won 3 of their past 4 league matches and are undefeated in their last 6, will be eager to return to Vonovia Ruhrstadion after suffering a 3-1 loss to Borussia Dortmund last week.
After two losses, Augsburg has not triumphed over Bochum in their last 3 games. They should be even more motivated by this since they came here hoping to resume winning ways. After a nail-biting 5-goal thriller at home versus Bayern Munich, Jess Thorup’s team lost. In the previous 6 games, they had suffered 4 losses. They were now 10 points away from the European locations and 9 points above the drop zone. Similar to Bochum, Augsburg has struggled away from home since they have enjoyed playing there more. Out of their 8 league losses, 5 have come while they were the visitors. But their most recent victory, a 2-1 victory over Gladbach, came on the road. Since his team is the only one in the league without a clean sheet after 19 games this season, Thorup’s main area of concern will be his team’s defensive shortcomings.As of 2023–24, they are the only team in the top 5 leagues in Europe without a single clean sheet.
