Bochum vs Borussia Dortmund betting tips: DFB-Pokal Third Round preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

Will Borussia Dortmund remain on track for another final at Olympiastadion in June?

Die Schwarzgelben are five-times winners of this competition, featuring in six of the last 11 finals, winning three of them.

It was during Edin Terzić's first spell in charge that Dortmund last captured this trophy, smashing RB Leipzig in the 2021 final, with both Jadon Sancho and Erling Braut Håland bagging braces.

Right now, they’re in terrific form, having won all four matches since the winter break, battering Freiburg 5-1 on Saturday.

Sébastien Haller scoring his first for the club in that one, having recovered from testicular cancer earlier this season.

This leaves Dortmund third in the Bundesliga, two points below Union Berlin and just three adrift Bayern Munich.

So, will the BVB positivity continue in the DFB-Pokal?

VfL Bochum meanwhile hammered Hoffenheim 5-2 at the weekend, scoring 5+ in a top-flight fixture for only the 17th time.

That was a much-needed win for Thomas Letsch’s team as it lifted them above Stuttgart and out of the relegation play-off spot.

Nevertheless, earlier this season, die Unabsteigbaren were demolished 3-0 by Dortmund in the league, so have won just one of their last nine clashes.

An away victory should be on the cards at Ruhrstadion.
