Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Fritz Walter Stadion will host Friday’s football game between Kaiserslautern and Paderborn, the two top-table sides. Kaiserslautern have been performing above expectations on their return to the German second tier, and they must be high on spirits following a 2-1 win over St. Pauli. Ben Zolinski remains in the recovery room, but he should be the only absentee in the home side. Paderborn defenders should have USA striker Terrance Boyd at bay as the 31-year-old scored his second goal of the season at the weekend.
The visitors, on the other hand, aim to build on a 4-2 win over Hannover. Paderborn have been impressive on home soil in the new campaign, but beating the Red Devils at Fritz Walter is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, the share of spoils is on the cards in Friday’s derby. All Kelvin Ofori, Kai Kleifish, and Sebastian Klaas should miss out with injuries for the visiting side.
