Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Friday’s football game at Home Deluxe Arena pits together Paderborn and St. Pauli, the two top-table sides. Paderborn have been producing fine displays in 2023, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to secure a top-three finish. Robert Leipertz has joined the likes of Raphael Obermair, Sebastian Klaas, and Kai Klefisch in the treatment room, while important midfielder Ron Schallenberg is banned for the match.
Fabian Hurzeler’s troops, on the other hand, are eyeing their sixth consecutive league win, and seeing that they played out a 2-2 draw earlier this term, both teams to score betting option should be considered. You should bear in mind that 12 goals in total have been netted in the previous three encounters between the two sides. All Afeez Aremu, Igor Matanovic, Dennis Smarsch, Etienne Amenyido, and David Nemeth are out of contention through injuries.
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.
