Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Holstein Kiel will be aiming to build on a 3-2 win over Braunschweig when they face Paderborn in the 2. Bundesliga round 22. Kiel quickly bounced back from a 3-2 loss to Magdeburg, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence, but they are still nine points behind the playoffs berth. Both Hauke Wahl and Marvin Schulz are banned for the match, while all Stefan Thesker, Fin Bartels, and Thomas Dahne remain on the sidelines with injuries.
The visitors, on the other hand, are eyeing their fifth consecutive league win. Paderborn have been producing excellent performances in the second half of the season, and seeing that they will stick to their attacking style of play, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Forward Sirlord Conteh is pushing for a start, whereas midfielder Kai Klefisch has yet to overcome an ankle problem.
Highlighted Team (Paderborn):
Welcoming their rivals at Benteler-Arena, Paderborn are a German club that will compete in the Bundesliga in the 2019/2020 season. The club played their first ever match in the German top flight on August 24, 2019, with the team sharing the spoils with Mainz (2-2) in front of home fans.
Benteler-Arena can hold up to 15,000 spectators and it was opened on July 20, 2008. Paderborn play their home matches in blue and black shirts and black shirts, but white is the dominant colour of their away kit. Until the 1980s TuS Scholls Neuhaus were considered the club’s main rivals are Arminia Bielefeld, with the two teams facing each other in Ostwestfalenderby.
This rivalry was established in the 2008/2009 season when Arminia Bielefeld dropped to the 2. Bundesliga. It has to be noted that Paderborn have yet to represent Germany in European competitions.
