Bundesliga Matchday 3 Betting Tips – VfL Bochum
Bochum is lying at the foot of the league-table after conceding late goals to narrowly lose both its opening 2 matches of the campaign.
Despite losing some key players in the summer, Bochum has recruited a number of new faces and Thomas Reis probably needs a bit more time to figure out his best line-up. The manager also has a host of injury-problems in the squad to deal with at the moment. So Dominique Heintz, Ivan Ordets and Cristian Gamboa are likely to remain as the centre-back trio with Manuel Riemann as the first-choice in goal.
Danilo Soares, Konstantinos Stafylidis and Jannes Horn are all ruled out of this fixture. Therefore Saidy Janko is likely to continue as the wing-back on the left-flank with Jordi Osei-Tutu on the right-side of the midfield. Skipper Anthony Losilla and Kevin Stöger are going to be the pair holding-midfielders with Takuma Asano in the no.10 position. Simon Zoller and Philipp Hofmann will form the centre-forward partnership.

Bundesliga Matchday 3 Betting Tips – FC Bayern München
After picking up comfortable victories in the opening 2 matches, Bayern München has a share of the lead at the top of the Bundesliga table.
Despite having a number of fresh faces on the bench, Julian Nagelsmann has no need to do any tinkering with the team. There are no major injury-issues at present so he will most probably keep an unchanged line-up for this match as well. Manuel Neuer will be the goalkeeper with Lucas Hernández and Dayot Upamecano as the centre-back pairing. Benjamin Pavard and Alphonso Davies will occupy the full-back positions.
Leon Goretzka is the only major absentee from the squad and is still a couple weeks away from making his return. Therefore Joshua Kimmich and Marcel Sabitzer should continue as the central-midfield partnership. Jamal Musiala will keep his spot on the left-wing with Thomas Muller on the right-flank. Sadio Mané will operate as a false-9 with Serge Gnabry as a free-roaming supporting-striker alongside him.
