Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Karlsruher will look to make amends for a 2-1 loss to St. Pauli when they face Paderborn in the 2. Bundesliga round 12. Karlsruher are eager to escape the danger zone and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the fellow bottom-table side. All Tim Rossmann, Efe-Kaan Sihlaroglu, and Daniel O’Shaughnessy are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
Paderborn, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 3-1 loss to Hertha Berlin and seeing that Karlsruher are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of grabbing something from the match. Both Mattes Hansen and Jannis Heuer miss out with injuries, whereas defender Laurin Curda is pushing for a start after coming as a substitute in the last league match.
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.
