Hoffenheim vs Paderborn Prediction
The hosts are certainly in the groove and picked up their third successive win last week after they took down Hertha Berlin on the road by a 3-2 scorecard. Alfred Schreuder’s side have now admitted defeat just once in their last five games. Garnering a total of ten points from a possible fifteen.
Their positive run of form has also propelled them up to tenth on the ladder, five points behind table-toppers Borussia Monchengladbach.
Paderborn, on the other hand, tasted success for the time in the league, in their respective matchup, after they surprisingly came out on top against Dusseldorf with two unanswered goals to their name. Be that as it may, the visitors are still dwelling at the bottom of the table.
The away side have no more than four points to their name as of now. And have also conceded more goals than any other side in the cluster. To make matters worse, Paderborn are on a two-match losing streak on the road at the moment.
Furthermore, the squad have not been faring any better in their previous visits to this venue and have stumbled in each of their last two trips here. With Hoffenheim recording back to back wins in their recent games, Paderborn surely have no chance of upsetting the odds in this one.
Additionally, the hosts have been caught napping in their defensive third far too many times and have just one clean sheet to boast of at home. Meanwhile, the guests have been keen on bagging a consolation goal at the least in their outings, and have done so in three of their last four.
Taking into account that three out of the previous four games here for Hoffenheim have also witnessed over 2.5 goals on the charts, count on both teams to rack up the goals tally on Friday.
