Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Paderborn and Heidenheim face each other at Benteler Arena in a highly-anticipated 2. Bundesliga game. Paderborn suffered a 1-0 loss to Darmstadt at the weekend, with the team extending their winless run to five games. Lukas Kwasniok’s troops have been playing some low-scoring games of late, and they should continue to rely on their solid defence in Saturday’s clash. All Felix Platte, Marco Stiepermann, and Maximilian Thalhammer are out of contention with injuries.
Heidenheim, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 3-2 loss to Karlsruher. Frank Schmidt’s troops have already suffered five defeats on the road this season, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts this time out. Forward Gianni Mollo is sidelined with injury, but he should be the only absentee in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Sebastian Vasiliadis):
Sebastian Vasilidis is a professional footballer of Greek descent who plays for SC Paderborn in the Bundesliga. The 175-cm-tall midfielder spent his youth career at TSG Backnang and VfR Aalen and he continued playing for the OSTALB ARENA outfit at senior level.
