Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
After rolling over Preussen Munster 6-1 in their last friendly, Paderborn will look to extend their winning run in 2. Bundesliga to four games when they face Greuther Furth on Matchday 18. Lukas Kwasniok’s troops are likely to adopt yet another attack-oriented approach, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Midfielder Maximilian Rohr is sidelined with injury, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
The Cloverleaves, on the other hand, are undefeated in the previous three away games in the German second tier, which is probably the main reason why we are going to put our money on draw. It has to be noted that both sides managed to find the net in four of the previous five meetings between the two sides in the 2. Bundesliga. Defender Oussama Haddadi is on international duty, while both Gian-Luca Itter and Niko Giesselmann remain on the sidelines with injuries.
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.
