Season ticket holders at Wildparkstadion haven’t seen too many victories this season, with Karlsruher SC languishing in the 16th position so far. The guesting Bochum will be hopeful to defend their higher league position in this one.
Karlsruher SC and Bochum should both be in good shape for this meeting, as there's been enough days for both of them to train and rest since their last matches.
