Greuther Furth vs Paderborn
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 25 August 2018
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK
Venue: Sportpark Ronhof Thomas Sommer (Furth).
Greuther Furth and Paderborn are going to face each other on Saturday afternoon in the third round of the German 2. Bundesliga.
Home side managed to avoid the relegation in the very finish of the season as their draw against Heidenheim kept their heads above the water. They had severe troubles in finding the back of the oppositions’ net more frequently, while their defence was not so tight. However, Daniel Keita Ruel and the lads were one of the best hosts in the competition as they won the majority of their points at home ground. This time, Greuther furth opened the season pretty successfully as they still haven’t suffered a defeat and they have four points on their account.
Paderborn have been promoted from the 3. Liga at the end of the last season as they finished two points behind Magdeburg on the 2nd place. They have been very confident through the entire season, but the slight drop in the form costed them the top spot at the end of the campaign.
The visitors have been clinical in front of the oppositions’ goal as they’ve produced 90 goals, while their defence did a pretty good job. Steffen Baumgart’s side opened this season with a defeat, however they managed to improve in the following round and beat Ingolstadt in the first round of DFB Pokal last weekend.
