Bochum finished their campaign strongly last season after struggling for long spells. It took coach Thomas Reis time to implement his changes but they improved dramatically and eventually finished 8th. Bochum will look to continue where they left off last season but have had their squad broken up slightly due to contracts coming to an end. Jordi Osei-Tutu and Manuel Wintzheimer have returned to their parent clubs after impressing on loan but they have secured the permanent signing of Vasilios Lampropolous, who proved to be a revelation in central defence since coming in on loan back in January. The other incomings for Bochum include right-winger Tarsis Bonga, who they hope will have a similar influence to Osei-Tutu with his pace on the flanks. Gerrit Holtmann is another good addition on the left-side and will also provide plenty of speed. Bochum’s main strengths lie in attack, they scored an impressive 53 goals last season and will be hoping for more of the same. Sylvere Ganvoula and Danny Blum will look to spearhead the attack, while new boy Soma Novothny can also add firepower. An area of concern could be defensively but, if centre-back pairing Lampropoulos and Leitsch continue their good form from the end of the last campaign, then they should be ok.

Target


Top 6- A top six finish has to be the aim for Bochum, they have quality in forward areas and defensively they are much more solid under Reis. A promotion push may be a little too much to ask due to the lack of squad depth.

Season Review
2019/2020

№8: Bochum

A solid end to the campaign saw Bochum finish in the top half of the table. The majority of the season was spent in the lower reaches but a number of key loan signings eventually had the desired effect. Manager Robin Dutt was sacked after picking up just 2 points from his first 4 games, it may have seemed a little harsh on 55 year-old but defensively they were all at sea, conceding 10 goals in those opening 4 matches. It took a while for predecessor Thomas Reis to find a winning formula and they continued to flirt with relegation up until the pandemic. Their defensive issues continued to haunt them but going forward they were as good as any, striker Sylvere Ganvoula was the catalyst and scored 13 times over the course of the season. Bochum came back a different side after the restart. January loan signing Vasilios Lampropoulos proved to be a revelation in central defence and formed a good partnership with Maxim Leitsch, while Osei-Tutu, on loan from Arsenal, was to have much more joy as a right winger as opposed to a right-back. They would only lose 1 of their last 9 games after the league resumed and conceded just 6. Bochum will look to build on their strong finish next season but will need reinforcements, a lot of players have reached the end of their contracts and the loan players have all returned to their parent clubs.
