Bochum hosts Borussia Monchengladbach in round 27 of the German Bundesliga. The match will be played on Friday, March 18th at Vonovia Ruhrstadion (Bochum)
Bochum spends only the first season in the elite division of the country after a very long pause. And the Blue-Whites pleasantly surprised their fans. They were initially considered as one of the unconditional outsiders of the championship. But already in the winter, it became clear that Thomas Reis’s men would probably not be relegated. And rather unstable results in the last rounds show that Bochum has relaxed a bit. A rather lengthy campaign in the cup ended with a defeat to Freiburg. In the next two matches, the Blue-Whites tied against Stuttgart and lost to RB Leipzig at home. Still, they managed to beat Greuther Furth, even though the opponents were quite motivated and looked good in the winter. A week ago, Bochum went to Frankfurt am Main. But having won the 1st half, Thomas Reis’s men lost 1-2 to Eintracht.

Borussia Monchengladbach cannot break away from the relegation zone at a fairly comfortable distance. But you probably remember that the team played in the last Champions League and even reached the playoffs! And Adi Hütter was invited to bring the Colts back to that level. But all that the Austrian manager can be proud of is the excellent performance in matches against Bayern Munich. In the German Cup, Borussia managed to hammer the Bavarians (5-0) but then lost 0-3 to Hannover from the 2nd division. Recent results in the Bundesliga are also far from perfect. After a victory over Augsburg, the Colts tied against Arminia Bielefeld and suffered a 6-0 romp from Borussia Dortmund. Spring began with an even more dangerous defeat to Stuttgart (2-3), although Monchengladbach had a 2-goal lead by the 35th minute. And only in the last round, the Prussians dealt with their direct competitor, Hertha Berlin. That victory allowed them to finally break away from the danger zone.
After 2011, Bochum did not play official matches against Borussia Monchengladbach. Another game took place only last October, and it ended with a 2-1 victory for the Colts. Bookmakers consider them to be the favorites of the upcoming match. But Bochum looks no weaker, so let’s believe that the hosts will not lose.
