We are really looking forward to the round of 16 match at home to VfL Bochum. They are competing at the top of the second division right now and are having a superb season. It will be a hard day’s work, because they are strong in the physical battles and have nothing to lose. Nevertheless, our aim is to get past this hurdle and reach the next round of the cup.
