Bochum made a miracle at the end of last season as they managed to defeat Bayern by 4-2. That was the first Bochum’s win against Bayern since 2004. Anyway, Bayern has been dominating Bochum and last season’s loss will be only an extra motive for the Bavarians who will cruise past Bochum in this game. The last 12 games between these two teams have gone over 2.5 goals and had an actual average of 4.5 goals per game in that span. Bayern’s manager may give a chance to some new players in this game which will not bring down the quality of the team’s game and will certainly fill in Bochum’s net to the top. The odds for Bayern’s win or over 2.5 goals are pretty low, therefore the best tip for this game is Bayern’s win with a total over 3.5 goals.
Expert betting tip: Bayern Munich to win and total over 3.5 goals (-114 by 22bet)
