It is very difficult for Bochum to get a positive result at the Allianz Arena tonight, especially when Bayern have been back on the winning track. In addition, Gray Lobster is equipped with new weapons with very high damage.
Welcoming Bochum tonight, coach Julian Nagelsmann will not have the service of some pillars because of injury and suspension such as Lucas Hernandez, Sadio Mane, Manuel Neuer or Joshua Kimmich. In addition, Noussair Mazraoui is also absent due to Covid-19 infection. However, Bayern still have important players to make the difference against pleasant opponents Bochum, such as Jamal Musiala, Serge Gnabry, Thomas Muller, Kingsley Coman; Choupo-Moting or rookie Joao Cancelo.
On the away side, Cristian Gamboa is the only name absent. He will be out of action for about a month because of a muscle injury. Meanwhile, Kostas Stafylidis has completely recovered from a flank injury and is ready to play in this match.
After a series of 3 disappointing 1-1 draws, Bayern have regained the joy of winning with the last two bold victories away in the German Cup and the Bundesliga. It seems that coach Nagelsmann has found the winning formula for the home team after getting Cancelo on loan from Man City. The top form of the Portuguese player is an inspiration to help Bayern find its ego.
Meanwhile, Bochum only won 1, lost 3 in the last 4 rounds and performed badly on the opponent’s field this season. Specifically, Bochum only won 1, lost up to 9 times after 10 matches away from his home in the 2022/23 Bundesliga. It should also be emphasized that Bochum has never won all 3 points on the field of Bayern in the encounters in the German league from 2002 until now. They have lost 6 and drawn 2 in the above 8 matches. It seems that the Gray Lobster will show strength again before leaving to be a guest at PSG in the 1/8 Champions League round.
