Paderborn vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction
Paderborn bounced back from a dismal 2-0 defeat at the hands of Borussia Monchengladbach on the road, by taking down Eintracht Frankfurt at home with a narrow 2-1 scoreline. Be that as it may, it needs saying that the victory was just their third of the season.
With just twelve measly points in the bag, the hosts are deservedly stuck to the bottom of the ladder in the Bundesliga.
On the other hand, Bayer Leverkusen managed to bring a two-match losing streak of their own to a halt with a 1-0 win over Mainz on the road in their last clash. The visitors were much the better side in that fixture. Impressively, they finished the ninety minutes with twice as many shots on target as their foes.
Furthermore, the guests are the second-best away side in the cluster, as far as statistics go. They have stumbled just thrice in their last eight outings in the first-division, garnering fifteen points from a possible twenty-four.
It is also worth mentioning that, Paderborn have dropped points in seven of their last nine games at home. Taking into account that their only previous meeting with this foe here also ended in defeat, count on Bayer Leverkusen to taste nothing but success in this one.
Additionally, Paderborn have gone down swinging in their clashes in front of the home crowd. They have failed to find the back of the net just once in their past nine games here and have racked up a total of twelve goals to their tally so far.
Meanwhile, Bayer Leverkusen have conceded eleven goals from their previous eight outings alone. Considering that the reverse fixture of this matchup also witnessed both teams get their names on the scoresheets, expect neither side to make it out of the ninety minutes with a clean sheet intact come Sunday.
