Our prediction for this match:
Paderborn and Borussia M’gladbach face each other in an all-German friendly on Saturday afternoon. Paderborn have been struggling at the back in preseason, with the team losing to both Borussia Dortmund reserves (2-4) and Ajax (1-4) in the previous two warm-up games. Considering that the 2. Bundesliga side are low on confidence ahead of the Borussia M’gladbach clash, home win should not be considered.
Die Fohlen, on the other hand, kicked off preseason with a 2-2 draw with Viktoria Koln. The Bundesliga side are eager to return to winning ways, and given Paderborn’s shaky defence, they will not have a better chance than this to do so. Anyhow, Borussia boss Adi Hutter is likely to use upcoming friendly matches to test as many players for the German Cup game against Kaiserslautern scheduled for August 9, 2021.
