Dortmund also racked up five goals in a one-sided meeting with fellow high-fliers Freiburg on Saturday to stay within three points of leaders Bayern Munich. Sebastien Haller made headlines by opening his BVB account after recovering from testicular cancer – on World Cancer Day, of all days – but the Côte d’Ivoire international could be rested for the trip to Bochum, with plenty of other attackers vying for a start. USMNT star Gio Reyna will feel he has earned it after netting from the bench in three consecutive league games, while Youssoufa Moukoko will be keen to get his first goal in this competition. Bellingham is expected to partner Mahmoud Dahoud in midfield, while Julian Ryerson and Mats Hummels should get the nod in defence, with the latter set to wear the captain’s armband if skipper Marco Reus is rested.

Match stats

  • Bochum’s four DFB Cup goals have been spread across Asano, Hofmann, Simon Zoller and Anthony Losilla. Hofmann is their top scorer in all competitions with eight.
  • Bochum are two-time DFB Cup runners-up (1968 and 1988) and have gone beyond the last 16 three times in the previous 10 campaigns.
  • Bochum and Dortmund are two of six teams in the last 16 who didn’t concede a goal in the first two rounds.
  • Bellingham has two goals and an assist in the cup this year, to go with eight and four across the Bundesliga and UEFA Champions League.
  • BVB won the only previous DFB Cup meeting 3-1 at home after extra-time back in March 1983, but have only won six out of 31 Bundesliga visits to Bochum (D14, L11).
  • Only Bayern Munich (20) and Werder Bremen (six) have won the DFB Cup more often than Dortmund (five). Their most recent title came in 2021 under Terzic.
