Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
There will be fireworks when Paderborn and Kaiserslautern face each other at Home Deluxe Arena in a highly-anticipated 2. Bundesliga game. Paderborn have been impressive in 2023, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive league win, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. A man to watch in the home team will be Robert Leipertz, who scored a brace in a thrilling 4-3 win over Hannover, whereas midfielder Maximilian Rohr is banned for the match. All Kai Kleifisch, Niclas Nadj, and Sebastian Klaas remain in the recovery room.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to St. Pauli, and seeing that Paderborn have already netted 30 goals at home ground this season, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of grabbing something from Friday’s showdown. As for the away side, midfielder Hikmet Ciftci misses out with a groin problem.
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.
