Bundesliga Matchday 29 Betting Predictions – VfL Bochum
While Bochum remains well away from any relegation threat, finding any consistency has been an issue after registering another win over a top-4 side.
For this difficult home-fixture, Thomas Reis will probably opt for a fairly conservative 4-2-3-1 system. Manuel Riemann will stand in goal with Erhan Masovic and Maxim Leitsch forming the centre-back pairing. Christian Gamboa has picked up a knock and might be ruled out for this clash therefore Herbert Bockhorn should take his position on the right-side of the backline with Danilo Soares over on the left.
Anthony Losilla and Konstantinos Stafylidis will be the two holding-midfielders adding a further layer of protection to the defence.
Takuma Asano is certain to start on the left-wing after getting 2 goals in the previous match while Milos Pantovic will operate down the right-flank. Elvis Rexhbecaj will be the attacking-midfielder in the no. 10 role with Sebastian Polter in the centre-forward position.

Bundesliga Matchday 29 Betting Tips – Bayer 04 Leverkusen
After a slight loss in form, Bayer Leverkusen racked up consecutive victories to keep its nose ahead of the chasing-pack in the race for the top-4 positions according to our Bundesliga betting tips experts.
While Gerrardo Seoane does have a few injuries to his squad, he may still choose to line his team in its usual 4-2-3-1 formation.
Lukás Hrádecky is the goalkeeper with Jonathan Tah and Edmond Tapsoba as the preferred central-defensive pairing. Jeremie Frimpong is still on the sidelines therefore Odilion Kossounou will start in the right-back position with Mitchel Bakker on the left-side of the defence.
Kerem Demirbay will return from suspension to take his spot at the heart of midfield alongside Robert Andrich. Amine Adli and Florian Wirtz are both out for the season so Karim Bellerabi will start on the right-wing while Paulinho might be deployed on the left-flank with Moussa Diaby as the attacking-midfielder down the middle. Lucas Alario will be the lone centre-forward although Patrik Schick is expected to make his return.
