Schalke vs Bochum: Preview & Analysis 9/10/2022

Game Preview


Basement club VfL Bochum will travel to Veltins-Arena for their Bundesliga encounter against fellow strugglers Schalke 04 on Saturday. The hosts are yet to win in the top flight this season, while the visitors have not claimed a single point from their opening five matches.


Since securing promotion from the second tier last season, Schalke have struggled to hit the ground running in the top flight, as they have drawn three and lost two of their first five fixtures. Schalke has at least picked up more points than Bochum, who have lost each of their opening five Bundesliga matches.


Die Konigsblauen were thrashed 6-1 in their last home match against Union Berlin, and they responded with a 1-1 draw away at Stuttgart last weekend, with Simon Terodde canceling out a strike from Chris Fuhrich. Frank Kramer’s men are now hovering just above the bottom three on goal difference and they sit three clear of Saturday’s opponents Bochum at the foot of the table.


Schalke will be confident of opening their account in the Bundesliga when they face Bochum, as they have won each of their last five top-flight home games against them, keeping a clean sheet in each of the last three. However, their last competitive meeting was back in January 2010 when both sides played out a 2-2 draw in Bochum.


Scoring just three goals and conceding 15, including seven at home to Bayern Munich, the only way is up for Thomas Reis’s side, and their recent performance against Hoffenheim will at least instill some belief in turning their fortunes around in the near future.


Bochum were on the verge of claiming their first point of the season against Hoffenheim last weekend, with the score at 2-2 heading into the closing stages, but an 88th-minute winner from substitute Mu’nas Dabbur ensured that the visitors would leave empty handed.
