Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Paderborn and Nurnberg face each other at Home Deluxe Arena in what is expected to be one of the most interesting games of Sunday’s program. Paderborn impressed in the first half of the season, but following their ups and downs in 2023, they eventually missed out on a spot in the playoffs. Both Felix Platte and Sebastian Klass are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The Bavarians, on the other hand, are only two points clear of the relegation and with worse goal difference in comparison with 16th-place Arminia Bielefeld. The visitors are desperate to pick up all three points from the decider, but beating Paderborn on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, the share of spoils is on the cards at Home Deluxe Arena. Johannes Geis misses out through suspension, while all Danny Blum, Peter Vindhal Jensen, Jan Gyamerah, Erik Wekesser, and Christian Mathenia should miss out with injuries.
