Round 25 of the 2022-23 German Bundesliga season brings five matches Saturday, March 18, so we have prepared the best Bochum vs. RB Leipzig betting pick along with the latest team stats, news, and odds update.      

Bochum – RB Leipzig Betting Tip, Prediction & Odds (18.3.2023)

RB Leipzig are coming off an embarrassing loss to Manchester City in the Champions League, and the Red Bulls will be highly motivated to bounce back. On the other side, Bochum are fighting for survival, so we’re looking for a great match at Vonovia Ruhrstadion. 

Bochum vs. RB Leipzig: Initial Situation  

Bochum are 14th in the German Bundesliga with 22 points (W7, D1, L16) and a hideous 26:56 goal difference. The Blues are just a couple of points above the relegation zone. RB Leipzig are third with 45 points (W13, D6, L5) and a 49:29 goal difference, five points behind Borussia Dortmund and seven behind FC Bayern. 

Bochum Stats & Form 

The Blues put an end to their five-game losing streak last Friday. After a 2-1 defeat against Dortmund in the DFB Pokal and four losses in the league (Bayern 3-0, Freiburg 2-0, Werder Bremen 3-0, and Schalke 2-0), Bochum beat FC Koln 2-0 as huge 5.00 road underdogs. The Blues have lost three straight matches at home while scoring just one goal in the process. 

Philipp Hofmann leads the way for Bochum with eight goals and three assists in 2022-23. Christopher Antwi-Adjei is the team’s best assist-maker with seven dishes, while Philipp Forster has six assists on his account. Bochum have slight selection problems ahead of the RB Leipzig clash, as striker Simon Zoller (four goals) and right-back Cristian Gamboa are recovering from injuries.

RB Leipzig Stats & Form

The Red Bulls suffered a heavy 7-0 loss against Manchester City in the second leg of the Champions League Round of 16 this past Tuesday. They were listed as massive 9.50 road dogs, but it was still an embarrassing defeat, as Erling Haaland scored five goals against RB Leipzig. The Red Bulls have been pretty inconsistent lately, tallying three wins, three losses, and a couple of draws over their previous eight outings in all competitions. 

RB Leipzig are without their top scorer Christopher Nkunku (17 goals and five assists this season), who’s recovering from a muscle injury. Keep your eyes on Timo Werner (13 goals and five assists) and Emil Forsberg (nine goals and six dishes).

Bochum – RB Leipzig: Head-to-Head

The Red Bulls have won all of their eight encounters with Bochum. In their first meeting of the season, RB Leipzig routed the Blues 4-0 at home, and Timo Werner and Christopher Nkunku scored a brace apiece. 

Bochum – RB Leipzig Odds

On paper, the Red Bulls are a much better team than the Blues, and the bookmakers are expecting RB Leipzig to extend their dominance. Still, Both Teams to Score YES pays just 1.75 at bet365 Sportsbook, and Over 2.5 Goals pays 1.67. 


Betting tip and prediction: Bochum – RB Leipzig (18.3.2023)

I’m looking for RB Leipzig to bounce back from that ugly loss in the Champions League. As I’ve mentioned, the Red Bulls have been hit-or-miss of late, but they have to win matches like this one if they want to play in the Champions League next season. Bochum’s defense is the worst in Bundesliga, and RB Leipzig possess plenty of dangerous weapons. The Red Bulls have won three of their last four league contests while scoring nine goals in the process.
