Thanks to a mainly available group, there’s only the sole fitness worry for the VfL Bochum gaffer Thomas Reis to contend with. Saulo Decarli (Infection) won’t be playing here.
We believe that Eintracht Braunschweig might well have a job on their hands to see themselves scoring against this VfL Bochum team who should manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a good battle with a 0-1 winning score for VfL Bochum when the full-time whistle blows.
Looking forward to watching this one unfold.
