Date: Saturday, 9 November 2019
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET

The dead-last, newly-promoted Paderborn will find it hard to challenge the more experienced, Augsburg. However, with both having the worst backlines in the whole league, goals are a sure-fire expectation this weekend.

Paderborn vs Augsburg Prediction
Paderborn was subjected to some heavy-duty offense the last match-day, as their defense was breached thrice within the first 25 minutes of the game, by Hoffenheim. Embarrassingly, not a single one was returned.
In the meanwhile, Augsburg secured a draw that had the value of a victory. On the road, against one of the toughest squads in the league, Wolfsburg, the former managed to keep their nets clean. While they themselves were not able to find the back of the net, the single point posted on the board, as a result, was hugely confidence-boosting.
This weekend, consider that Paderborn is currently placed 18th in a table of 18 and that they are new additions to this competition. They have managed a single victory from their preceding sixteen match-days, and also failed to score in four of their former six games.
In addition, they had lost ten of their previous thirteen match-ups and conceded twice or more in 13 of their prior 16 games.
At home, they have lost five of their last six appearances, and let in two or more goals in seven of their last eight.
On the other hand, their counterparts have lost just once from their preceding five overall battles, and just once from their prior four on the road. Moreover, Augsburg has the experience factor, as they have spent more time in the top division recently, and have also dominated h2h clashes in the last decade.
In fact, only once have Paderborn managed a victory against this opponent since 2007. And as such, count on the visiting Augsburg to avoid a loss at the least this game week.
Coming to goals though, the away handicap, plus the form the backline of Augsburg has shown for the past several weeks, will make an impact. Importantly, at this venue, in the past 12 years, every single h2h tie has had goals at either end of the pitch as well.
These factors contribute to the BTTS having great potential as these two take the pitch.
