Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
All eyes will be on Fritz Walter Stadion when Kaiserslautern and Paderborn lock horns in a highly-anticipated 2. Bundesliga game. The Red Devils aim to recover from a 2-1 loss to Elversberg and it has to be noted that they rolled over Schalke 4-1 in their last home fixture. Both Philipp Hercher and Hendick Zuck are sidelined with injuries, while Ben Zolinski should miss out through illness.
Paderborn, on the other hand, aim to build on a 4-3 win over Fortuna Dusseldorf. Lukas Kwasniok’s troops looked sharp in front of goal in their last league match and given Kaiserslautern’s attacking potential on home soil, both teams to score seems like a good betting option for Saturday’s encounter. As for the away team, both Jannik Huth and Maximilian Rohr are out of contention with injuries, while trio Grimaldi – Curda – Ezekwem has been struggling with illness.
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.
