Borussia Dortmund will look to continue their sizzling start to 2024 when they host local rivals Bochum at Signal Iduna Park on Sunday. Their excellent performance in back-to-back games to start the year has a lot to do with the return of Jadon Sancho. Having gone 4 winless games before the winter break, Sancho has given the Yellow and Black the impetus they needed with key plays in both games, albeit coming away against the bottom feeders Darmstadt and FC Koln.
Bochum took care of a wasteful Stuttgart outfit at the Vonovia Ruhrstadion, as the Blues notched their first H2H home victory since 2005 with a 1-0 victory last time out. This win actually aided Dortmund who moved to within a point of the top 4. Importantly, it extended their unbeaten run to 6 matches across all competitions and allayed fears of relegation that had dogged them a few weeks ago as they moved 9 points clear of the drop zone.
Things are looking good for Dortmund at the moment as they push for a return to the top echelons in the Bundesliga hierarchy. Derby games are usually tough but all the momentum is with Dortmund at the moment and we expect the raucous home crowd to come in their numbers here. We are backing Dortmund to overcome a -1 handicap as our main Borussia Dortmund vs Bochum prediction.
The race for the Bundesliga is picking up pace. Make the most of our Bundesliga betting tips from our panel of experts to win this weekend!
