Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Merkur Spiel-Arena will host Friday’s 2. Bundesliga game between Fortuna Dusseldorf and Paderborn, the two teams who defeated Magdeburg and Karlsruher respectively in their season openers. Die Fortunen failed to beat Paderborn in the previous three meetings between the two sides, but the odds for home win have been dropping this time out. A man to watch in the home team will be experienced forward Rouwen Hennings, who opened his goal-scoring account at the weekend.
Paderborn, on the other hand, impressed in the 5-0 crushing of Karlsruher, but beating Fortuna Dusseldorf on the road is easier said than done. A close match is on the horizon at Merkur Spiel-Arena, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. In their last meeting in the German second tier the two teams played out a 1-1 draw, which is yet another reason why this betting option should be considered.
