Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Paderborn will be aiming to build on a 3-0 win over Karlsruher when they take on Nurnberg at Home Deluxe Arena. Paderborn are only three points behind the playoffs berth and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s clash. Kimberly Ezekwem is sidelined through illness, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
The Bavarians, on the other hand, aim to recover from a 2-1 loss to Schalke, but given their ups and downs on the road, we predict that Paderborn are going to pick up all three points from the match. The likes of Jannik Hofmann, Johannes Geis, James Lawrence, and Joseph Hungbo are out of contention with injuries, speaking of the visiting team. In their last meeting in the German second tier Nurnberg defeated Paderborn 1-0 thanks to Lukas Schleimer’s goal, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
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.
