Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Paderborn and St. Pauli go head to head at Benteler Arena in what is expected to be a close 2. Bundesliga game. Paderborn produced their best performance of the season at the weekend, with the team rolling over Werder Bremen 4-1 on the road, and, no doubt, the triumph gave them a confidence boost. Felix Platte, who scored a brace in the triumph over die Werderaner, is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
St. Pauli, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Magdeburg (3-2) and Hamburger SV (3-2). The visitors from the suburbs of Hamburg have been scoring goals for fun in all competitions of late, and given Paderborn’s attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Simon Makienok, who scored a brace in the local derby, will be one of the men to watch in the away team.
