Bochum v Bayern Munich Betting Preview: Back against the visitors running riot in cup clash

The home side will be hoping to bridge the significant gulf in class between these two teams and our tipster is not anticipating a glut of goals for Pep Guardiola's outfit
Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich travel to challenge Bochum for a place in the semi-finals of the German Cup.

Pep Guardiola's side were held to a goalless draw by Bayer Leverkusen at the weekend, but the German champions, unsurprisingly, remain as red hot favourites to progress to the last four of the competition at the expense of their lower league opponents.

Indeed, Bayern can be backed at just 2/15 (1.13) with Betway to reach the next round by winning inside 90 minutes, while the enormity of the task facing the hosts is reflected by Betway's 15/1 (16.0) quote for Gertjan Verbeek's men to claim a famous victory. The draw is rated as a 13/2 (7.50) chance with the same firm.

Bochum have already beaten Salmrohr, Kaiserslautern and 1860 Munich to set up this quarter-final clash, but there is no doubt that facing the German champions represents a significant step up in class for the hosts.

Guardiola's charges have lost just two of their last 26 German Cup matches - with both defeats coming at the hands of Borussia Dortmund - and have lost just one of their last 16 matches in all competitions.

Just one of Bayern's last four competitive away matches has featured more than two goals and, should that trend continue, there could be value in Betway's 7/4 (2.75) quote that fewer than three goals are scored when these two teams lock horns.

Furthermore, the Bavarian giants have notched just 16 away goals in 10 Bundesliga matches, compared to 34 in 10 games on home soil, and so the 11/10 (2.10) quote from Betway for the visitors to bag fewer than three goals may well prove popular with punters.

The selection would have landed in six of Bayern’s last seven competitive matches away from home and, with the hosts likely to attempt to keep things tight against their more illustrious opponents, those anticipating a glut of goals may well be left disappointed.
