Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Paderborn will be aiming to build on back-to-back wins over Fortuna Dusseldorf and Kaiserslautern when they face Holstein Kiel on Matchday 22. Paderborn have been displaying noticeable progress in their goal-scoring abilities of late and we are positive that they will adopt yet another attack-oriented approach against Holstein Kiel. Both Felix Platte and Jannik Huth are sidelined with injuries, while Kimberly Ezekwem misses out through illness.
The visitors, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Schalke 04. Die Storche, though, are not regarded as good travellers and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Paderborn’s party at Home Deluxe Arena. All Fiete Arp, Benedikt Pichler, and Carl Johansson are out of contention through injuries, speaking of the visiting team. It has to be noted that in their last meeting at the venue Paderborn rolled over Holstein Kiel 7-2.
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.
