Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Werder Bremen and Paderborn square off against each other at Weserstadion in what is expected to be an entertaining 2. Bundesliga game. Die Werderaner aim to bounce back from the German Cup defeat to Osnabruck, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Paderborn. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be USA international Joshua Sargent, who scored a brace in the 3-2 win over Fortuna Dusseldorf.
Anyhow, home win should be considered as over the years Werder Bremen have turned their Weserstadion into a real fortress. The visitors, on the other hand, suffered a 2-1 loss to Dynamo Dresden in their German Cup opener. Considering that Paderborn have been struggling at the back of late, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match. One of the men to keep an eye on in the away team will be Sven Michel, who found the net in each of the previous two games.
