Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
After suffering a heavy 3-0 defeat to Fortuna Dusseldorf in midweek, Osnabruck will be looking to return to winning ways in the 2. Bundesliga when they host Paderborn at their Stadion an der Bremer Bruck on Matchday 13. Marco Grote’s troops have been having their ups and downs of late, and, unlike previous seasons, they have been producing much better displays at home than on the travels. Defender Bashkim Ajdini, who suffered an injury in the 3-0 loss to Dusseldorf, is unlikely to feature against Paderborn.
The visitors, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their four-game winless run in the German second tier. Steffen Baumgart’s troops have been struggling in front of goal of late, with the team failing to find the net in three of their previous four league fixtures, and that is the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on Osnabruck this time out. Ghana attacker Christopher Antwi-Adjej is banned for the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Christopher Antwi-Adjei):
Christopher Antwi-Adjei is a German midfielder of Ghanaian descent who plays for SC Paderborn as a midfielder. Antwi-Adjei started his youth career at Hasper SV and in 2009 he was spotted by MSV Duisburg scouts. The 171-cm-tall midfielder played for die Zebras before joining Eintracht Dortmund in 2011.
One year later Antwi-Adjei moved to Westfalia Herne and he continued playing for the club at senior level. In 2014 he signed a contract with TSG Sprockhovel and after scoring 24 goals in 89 appearances for the club he moved to SC Paderborn in 2017.
Over the years he has established himself as a first-team regular at the Benteler-Arena outfit, scoring 10 goals and providing 3 assists for his teammates in the 2018/2019 2. Bundesliga season. His main position is left midfield, but he is used a second striker as well. His preferred foot is right and his contract with SC Paderborn expires on June 30, 2021.
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.
