Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
There will be fireworks when Paderborn and Schalke go head to head at Home Deluxe Arena in the 2. Bundesliga round 8. Paderborn have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team losing to Holstein Kiel, beating Wehen, while sharing the spoils with Magdeburg in their last league fixture. Lukas Kwasniok’s men are eager to escape the danger zone and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field this time out. Both Visar Musliu and Maximilian Rohr are major doubts, while Robert Leipertz and Filip Bilbija are out of contention through injuries.
Die Knappen, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to St. Pauli and given their difficulties on the road, we believe that the time has come for Paderborn to return to winning ways in the German second tier. All Ralf Fahrmann, Danny Latza, Marius Muller, Simon Terodde, Bryan Lasme, Kenan Karaman, Ibrahim Maza, and Leo Greiml are injured for the visiting team.
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.
