VfL Bochum Vs Arminia Bielefeld: Team News
To make matters worse for the hosts, Kostas Stafylidis is serving the last part of a three-match suspension, while fellow defender Danilo Soares is still questionable due to an injury. As a result, Reis is expected to choose an identical starting lineup for his team’s last home game of the season, particularly in light of their outstanding performance the previous time out.
There will also be minimal changes to the Arminia starting XI, with youngster attacker Burak Ince and experienced midfielder Gonzalo Castro expected to keep their positions after their impressive performances against Hertha Berlin.
In such a case, the visitors would play a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Patrick Wimmer and Sebastian Polter serving as the other two offensive midfielders to provide support for the youthful Ince.

The One-Liner Explainer
While the host side has enjoyed the better recent record, as well as the better season, consistency is always an issue that even they need to address. On the other hand, Arminia still has a lot to play for on Saturday night. This is likely to conclude in a hard-fought tie, which, sadly for caretaker manager Marco Kostmann and his team will not be enough to keep them in the competition. Let’s see what happens in this game, as both teams want the three points for different reasons.
