Bayern Munich come on the back of a comfortable 3-0 win against FC Barcelona in the Champions League at the Camp Nou which saw the Bavarians take complete control over the Catalonia side as Thomas Muller opened the scoring which was followed up by two goals from Robert Lewandowski.
In the Bundesliga, Bayern come on the back of another impressive performance against Leipzig which saw them win 4-1 which was a sign that Bayern were coming back to their best.
Bayern had 4 different goal-scorers in that game as Lewandowski, Musiala, Leroy Sane and Choupo-Moting got on the score sheet to seal 3 points for Julian Nagelsmann.
On the other hand, Bochum currently sit in 15th position in the league table with just 3 points on board from 4 league games as they have lost thrice and won once which was in match week 2.
The visitors come into this fixture on the back of a 3-1 loss at home to Hertha Berlin as Simon Zoller got on the score sheet in the 59th minute of the game.

Bayern Munich vs Bochum Prediction
Goals are set to arrive in this fixture and we back the odds at 1.50 for goals over 3.5 in this game. Bayern will be highly driven to get on the score sheet and pile up the pressure on Wolfsburg at the top of the table.
Consequently, we see that Serge Gnabry will start in this fixture as he came on a substitute in the Champions League against FC Barcelona. We back the odds at 1.53 for the Germany international to score anytime during the game
