Bundesliga Matchday 31 Betting Tips – VfL Bochum
While Bochum has not exactly been in great form, it still collected 8 points from its last 8 fixtures to stay of the relegation-zone at the closing stages of the season.
The injury-list is short but Thomas Reis will have to manage without a couple of crucial players which might indulge him to retain the 4-3-3 system from the last game. Manuel Riemann will take his place in goal with Armel Bella Kotchap and Maxim Leitsch as the central-defensive pairing. Danilo Saores is still ruled out of the squad so Danny Blum will continue at left-back with Cristian Gamboa on the right-side of the backline.
Konstantinos Stafylidis is suspended after a picking up a red-card last week therefore Anthony Losilla will act as the anchorman of the side with Eduard Löwen and Elvis Rexhbecaj being the two central-midfielders on either side of him. Takuma Asano and Gerrit Holtmann will operate as the attacking-midfielders starting from the wider areas with Sebastian Polter taking up the centre-forward-role.

Bundesliga Matchday 31 Betting Tips – FC Augsburg
A fortnight ago, Augsburg looked home and dry in the race for Bundesliga survival but back-to-back defeats have put the club in a precarious state once again.
There are some niggling injuries within the squad yet Markus Weinzierl may consider switching his tactics to the 3-4-2-1 formation which produced some positive results in recent weeks. Felix Uduokhai is still unavailable therefore skipper Jeffrey Gouweleeuw will form the 3-man backline along with Reece Oxford and Robert Gumny while Rafal Gikiewicz has remained ever-present in goal this season.
Niklas Dorsch and Arne Maier have been the preferred choice as the central-midfield pairing in the past few matches. Daniel Caligiuri seems doubtful to return from injury so André Hahn should start as the right wing-back with Iago taking his spot on the left. Florian Niederlechner might miss this match as well so Alfred Finbogasson could be the centre-forward with Michael Gregoritsch and Rubén Vargas as the supporting strikers.
