Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Max-Morlock-Stadion will host Sunday’s football game between Nurnberg and Paderborn, who shared the spoils with Greuther Furth and Karlsruher respectively before the international break. Nurnberg are eager to put an end to their four-match winless run, and a victory over Paderborn should see them escape the danger zone in the 2. Bundesliga standings. Ukraine rising star Eric Shuranov should keep his place up front after finding the net in the 2-2 draw with Greuther Furth.
Paderborn, on the other hand, were on the verge of beating Karlsruher in their last league match, but Babacar Gueye eventually scored a late equalizer for the visiting team. Steffen Baumgart’s men are stuck in the middle of the standings, and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the Max-Morlock-Stadion showdown. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Chris Fuhrich, who has found his goalscoring touch of late.
Highlighted Player (Hanno Behrens):
Hanno Behrens is a German footballer who was born in Elmshorn (West Germany) on March 26, 1990. Behrens played for the likes of FC Elmshorn 1920 and Hamburger SV before making his senior debut with Hamburger SV II in 2008. After scoring seven goals in 79 appearances for die Rothosen, Behrens joined SV Darmstadt 98 in 2012.
The defensive midfielder was part of Darmstadt from 2012 to 2015, when he signed a contract with 1. FC Nurnberg. The German footballer has been playing for der Ruhmreiche ever since and it is important to note that he scored 15 goals in 36 appearances for the club in 2. Bundesliga in the 2017/2018 season. Hanno Behrens did well to score for Nurnberg in a 2-0 win over Sandhausen on May 6, 2018, which helped the Bavarian side clinch promotion to the German top flight.
However, despite establishing himself as one of 1. FC Nurnberg key players, Hanno Behrens has yet to make his debut for Germany national team.
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.
