Bundesliga Matchday 1 Betting Tips – VfL Bochum

It is going to be a much harder job this season for Thomas Reis to keep Bochum in the top-flight considering it has the smallest budget in the league by some distance.

The club has also lost some key players over the summer although the club has signed a number of players to bolster the squad. Manuel Riemann is the clear first-choice in goal and was among the top-performers of the team last season. But Armel Bella-Kotchap and Maxim Leitsch are no longer at the club so Vasilios Lampropoulos and Erhan Masovic are going to form the centre-back pairing.

Konstantinos Stafylidis and Danilo Soares are injured so new signing Jannes Horn will start at left-back with Cristian Gamboa on the right. Anthony Losillia and Kevin Stöger are likely to be the two holding-midfielders with Takuma Asano in the no.10 position. Gerrit Holtmann will take up the left-win while Simon Zoller could be deployed on the right and the new arrival Philipp Hofmann is going to be the lone centre-forward.

Bundesliga Matchday 1 Betting Tips – 1.FSV Mainz 05

Bo Svensson delivered considerable improvement over his first full-season and Mainz will be setting its sights on a top-6 finish following a massive influx to the squad.

Nevertheless, there have been some notable departures during the summer especially in the defensive areas as Moussa Niakhaté, Jeremiah St. Juste and Luca Kilian have all left the club. Therefore Stefan Bell, Alexander Hack and the new signing Maxim Leitsch are the only regular centre-backs in the side that will form the 3-man defensive-line in front of the keeper Robin Zentner.

Silvan Widmer is going to be wing-back on the right flank with Aarón Martín on the left. Dominik Kohr has signed a permanent deal with the club this summer and will act as the anchorman of the side while Leandro Barreiro and Jae-Sung Lee are likely to be the two central-midfielders. Karim Onisiwo and Jonathan Burkhardt should be the centre-forward pair even though Marcus Ingvartsen has also been added to the squad.

Match Result & First Goal: Mainz & Mainz Goal

Bundesliga Matchday 1 Betting Tip – Bochum is not a prolific side and might have more trouble scoring goals after losing its top-scorer from last season. Mainz is the favourite despite being the away-side as it looks a better team defensively as well.

Both Halves: Under 1.5
