After finishing the month of October with a winner at Firhill to make it 13/21 (62%) winners for the month, The opening Football Bet of the Day of November sees me head to the Bundesliga on Friday night, and I like the possibility of goals.
⚽️ Darmstadt 98 vs VfL Bochum
⏰ Friday 3rd November, 19:30
Two clubs in the lower echelons of the Bundesliga table go head-to-head at the Merck-Stadion am Böllenfalltor tomorrow evening as 14th-placed Darmstadt play host to 16th-placed Bochum in a fixture that appeals to me for goals.
Torsten Lieberknecht’s hosts have scored 13 goals across their opening nine matches since promotion to the Bundesliga, with nine (69%) of them coming at home. Prior to their 8-0 mauling at Bayern Munich last week, Die Lilien had found the back of the net in each of their previous seven Bundesliga matches – including in each of their opening four in front of their supporters – and they will be confident of breaching a Bochum backline that has already shipped 23 goals across their opening nine Bundesliga matches this term, with their solitary clean sheet coming away at RB Leipzig in a match goalkeeper Manuel Riemann saved two spot kicks.
Thomas Letsch’s visitors have scored just eight goals across their opening nine matches in the Bundesliga this term, with five (56%) of them coming in their three meetings with bottom-half sides. Die Blauen have found the back of the net in 6/9 (67%) of their Bundesliga fixtures – only failing to score away at Bayern (2nd), Stuttgart (3rd) and RB Leipzig (5th) – and they will aim to trouble a Darmstadt defence yet to register a clean sheet in the Bundesliga this season, shipping a league-high 30 goals.
Bet of the Day
Darmstadt’s opening nine Bundesliga matches this season are averaging a league-high 4.78 goals per game, with Both Teams to Score & Over 2.5 Goals banking in seven of their previous eight – and given the same had landed in Bochum’s four matches against sides positioned in 8th and below in the Bundesliga table – I reckon we’ll see at least three goals with both sides contributing in a match both sides will have full belief they can win.
