Paderborn vs Borussia Dortmund
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 31 May 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Benteler Arena.

Dortmund are almost certain to end up runners-up at the end of the season, just below the Bavarians, while Steffen Baumgart’s men are almost sure of getting the boot to the lower division.

Keep note that they had gained entry into the top flight just at the end of the last season. By all means, expect a win for the visitors this Sunday.

Paderborn vs Borussia Dortmund Head-to-head (h2h)

The Black and Yellows are unbeaten in the last 4 h2h meetings with Paderborn (2W, 2D), netting a whooping 19 goals in the process.

The teams played a thrilling 3-3 draw when they met at the Signal Iduna Park earlier this season. Bvb were 3-0 down by half time, a flurry of goals at the dying moments saved the former champions from humiliation.

Dortmund’s last to the stadium was in 2014, for Bundesliga round of 12 fixture, also a thriller that ended 2-2.

Paderborn vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction

Baumgart’s men were held to a goalless draw the last match-day on the road, by Augsburg. Both teams exhausted their full set of available substitutions, and still could not find that elusive winning goal.

Meanwhile, the mean in black and yellow hosted arch-rivals Bayern Munich in one of the most important games of their campaign. In a must-win fixture, the famed Der BVb failed to show up, and the defending champions recorded a 0-1 win. The victory almost ensured that the Bavarians would add another title to their cabinet.

As things stand, Dortmund are the overwhelming favorites for the day. They are easily the second-best team in the country, and they have the stats to back the claim as well. At present, they are placed second in the table, and have scored the second-most number of goals – 74 goals from 28 league fixtures.

On the other hand, Baumgart’s men are placed dead-last in the table, and need to make up a deficit of nine points from the remaining six match-ups, to avoid relegation. However, they have secured a total of 19 points from their 28 games. They are also severely inexperienced in this top flight, as they were promoted to this league just this past summer.

Moreover, Der BVB have a 100% unbeaten record against this opponent, and have scored a total of 19 goals from the previous four h2h clashes. They have also scored two or more goals in all h2h fixtures so far, and won the latest h2h encounter at this venue 1-6.

Considering these observations, it’s estimated that Borussia Dortmund are about to record a huge win this Sunday.
