The hosts bounced back after the inaugural loss on the return to the second tier football by clinching four points from pats two rounds. They grabbed the maiden victory three weeks ago beating Jahn Regensburg 2-0 at home.

Can Steffen Baumgart’s men maintain the perfect home record and cause an upset against one of the main promotional contenders here?

Bochum intentionally sacrificed DFB Pokal success for 2. Bundesliga as Robin Dutt sent out a mixed line-up in a disappointing 1-0 loss to lower-division Weiche-Flensburg in the opening round of the cup competition two weeks ago.

Nevertheless, Die Unabsteigbaren responded very well, beating Sandhausen 1-0 at their Vonovia Ruhrstadion with a goal from influential midfielder Robert Tesche.

It was the second straight clean sheet victory for Bochum. Can they keep such fine spell of form going here against the league newcomers?

Paderborn vs Bochum: Head-to-head

The DFB Pokal draw has joined these two sides together in the early stages last year when Paderborn stunned Die Unabsteigbaren 2-0 at home.

Bochum still lead the head to head tie by a single win, though, coming into 15th meeting with Paderborn.

Three or more goals were seen in six of last eight head to head affairs between these two likes.

Paderborn vs Bochum: Prediction

Baumgart can be thrilled with his team’s stellar attacking form at the start of the season. Paderborn bagged two goals in each of last three matches across competitions, including the cup victory over Ingolstadt.

They are 2/2 in matches on the home patch where they defeated Jahn Regensburg in the league and Ingolstadt in DFB Pokal, meaning the visitors could face hard times avoiding a defeat at Benteler-Arena.

Bochum will sit at the back and wait for their chances from counter-attacks. These should eventually come as Paderborn shipped three goals in last two games which adds on the value of the 1.72 odds offered for Die Unabsteigbaren not to lose.

Dutt is a tactical master and we believe he just knows how to handle the in-form league newcomers and keep things tight at the back for Bochum here.
