Bochum vs Kiel, both teams have lost in the last few weeks the contact to the first three places something. Holstein Kiel is as a table screen with only three points behind the relegation place but at least still in touch. The VfL Bochum as eighth is then six more counters back and thus actually no longer belongs to the circle of candidates for third place.
VfL Bochum vs Holstein Kiel Today’s Betting Tips
After four duels, the balance between the two clubs is balanced with one win and two draws. In Bochum was the 1-1 in the past season, the only match so far.
After good, if not outstanding 23 points from the first 14 games, VfL Bochum has in the late fall at 1 FC Magdeburg (0: 0), against FC St. Pauli (1: 3) and 1 FC Union Berlin (0-2) allowed three consecutive games in a row, which cost a lot of ground. But for the VfL succeeded in the last game before Christmas a surprising 3-2 victory at 1 FC Cologne and the start to the new year celebrated the team of coach Robin Dutt a 2-1 win against MSV Duisburg. Since then, however, the trend has been pointing downwards. When SV Sandhausen (0: 3), against SC Paderborn (1: 2) and at FC Ingolstadt (1: 2) Bochum conceded three defeats in a row, whereupon Coach Dutt understandably spoke of a crisis.
Lineup VfL Bochum
After the defeat in Ingolstadt several changes are conceivable. What is certain is that Anthony losilla is missing from the yellow. For the past week could be available again broken Luke Hinterseer and Jan Gyamerah again. Patrick Fabian could also be an option after his rib break. Silvere Ganvoula returns to the squad after serving a blackout. Baris Ekincier, Maxim Leitsch, Jannik Bandowski, Thomas Eisfeld and Milos Pantovic, on the other hand, are no longer alternatives.
Probable lineup: Riemann – Celozzi, Baumgartner, Hoogland, Danilo – Tesche, Janelt – Kruse, Lee, Weilandt – Hinterseer
Holstein Kiel has made a solid start with twelve points from the first nine games, but then significantly increased and retracted from the nine encounters before the winter break 18 counters. In particular, the 3: 1 victory the day before Christmas Eve against the Hamburger SV nourished the hope of a renewed involvement in the promotion race. In the new year, however, the storks have only been mixed. After a 2: 2 at 1. FC Heidenheim and a 2-0 home win against SSV Jahn Regensburg Kiel remained last three times in a row winless. It was really bitter in the round of 16 of the DFB Cup against FC Augsburg (0: 1), which was actually completely under control. After Kiel came at 1 FC Magdeburg (1: 1) also not a draw out as against SpVgg Greuther Fürth (2: 2).
Lineup Holstein Kiel
With Kingsley Schindler and David Kinsombi fall from two performers as well as the now at least in the composition training located Aaron Seydel and Masaya Okugawa. Again, Alexander Mühling, who has served his yellow card suspension.
Probable lineup: Kronholm – Dehm, Schmidt, Wahl, van den Bergh – Karazor – Mühling, Meffert – Lee – Evina, Serra
