Wattenscheid welcomes Sportfreunde Lotte in the ninth round of the Regionalliga West. The game is played @ Lohrheidestadion in Bochum and starts @ 17 o`clock because the floodlights are being repaired. Wattenscheid is a serious home team this year so the odds placed seem to be a bit over the top. They were level on opening but now Lotte has become a serious favorite. I don`t see a good enough reason. It is hard to win away in this league so I would always prefer the host, especially if th teams are on the same level. Wattenscheid is placed 6`th in the league with 14 points. With a win today can jump even to second place. Lotte is second with 17 points and have 5-2-1 so far. They lost the first time 2 weeks back against another strong team Oberhausen. With a win would share first place with Rodinghausen.
Wattenscheid played only 3 home matches out of 8 but has great results. They beat Verl 2:1, RW Essen 3:0 and Beeck 5:0. Those are not the strongest teams in the league but it is obvious that they will want to continue the high performances at home. Wattenscheid lost the last away game vs Viktoria Koln 3:1.
Lotte has played just 3 away game and has a mediocre 1-1-1. They won over Koln II 2:4, drew with lowly Borussia II 1:1 and lost to Oberhausen 2:0. I don` t think they can be trusted today event hough they had very good results away from home last season. It seems Lotte has a problem creating chances as in the last 4 matches in all competitions have scored 1 or no goals. Besides the first away loss in the season Lotte dissapointed in their last home match as well. They played 1:1 against miserbale Erndtebruck and showed a very poor performance. They also have a few players absent today to make the job a bit harder.
Watenscheid will miss Demir Tumbul(mid.4-0) but others are available. Sportfreunde Lotte will miss Berndt Rosinger(att.6-1), Tim Gorschlüter(mid.2-0), Andre Dej(mid.6-0) and Nico Granatowski(att.1-0).
All in all I would place the hosts as small favorites, not the other way around.
