Bochum has had a mixed run of results. They secured a 2-1 victory against Darmstadt away from home, which would have been a confidence booster. However, their form has been inconsistent, with a 2-2 draw against Mainz at home, a narrow 1-2 loss to Freiburg away, a goalless draw against Heidenheim away, a 1-3 loss at home to M'gladbach, and a heavy 0-7 defeat away at Bayern Munich.
Wolfsburg's recent form has been a blend of challenging moments and glimpses of potential. While they have demonstrated the ability to compete against strong teams, as seen in the DFB Cup, their league performance has been less consistent. As they prepare for their upcoming match against RB Leipzig, Wolfsburg will likely aim to leverage their cup success against the same opponent and seek to address their defensive issues to improve their standing in the Bundesliga.
