VfL Bochum (LWWWLL)
Bochum will be playing for a win to avoid relegation. A win for Bochum will push Hoffenheim down to the relegation zone. With Bochum playing at home, they will be full of confidence to win the match.

At home Bochum have score twelve goals and conceded fifteen.
TSG Hoffenheim (LLLLDL)
Without a win in the last eight games played, Hoffenheim will be hoping to win this match to avoid been in the relegation zone. However, the away form of Hoffenheim does not suggest a win will be straight forward. Hoffenheim have won only two of the eight matches played away, conceding 13 goals in the process. Scoring goals is not as difficult as defending for Hoffenheim. Hoffenheim have scored in seven consecutive matches while conceding a minimum of two goals in eight of the last nine matches played.
To avoid relegation, Hoffenheim will have to tighten things at the back.
