Paderborn vs Fortuna Dusseldorf Prediction
The hosts failed to break free from their losing streak last week and succumbed to a 3-0 defeat at the hands of FC Koln. With zero wins in their campaign so far, Paderborn have deservedly hit rock bottom in the ladder with no more than one measly point to their name.
Fortuna Dusseldorf have been faring slightly better in comparison. The visitors registered their second win of the season in their most recent matchup after they took down Mainz with a 1-0 scorecard. At the moment, the away side are thirteenth on the table and are sporting a six-point cushion over their counterparts as well.
To make matters worse for the home crowd, the hosts have not secured the bragging rights in their last three meetings with Fortuna Dusseldorf here, and have even been at the losing end in one of them.
With the visitors picking up a win on the road once already, Paderborn’s chances of coming out on top are certainly looking bleak. Be that as it may, given that five of their last eight encounters with each other have witnessed both teams sharing the spoils, the safest punt in this one is undoubtedly a double chance.
Furthermore, the hosts have hardly shown any conviction in the final third and have just five goals in the bag so far. The away side’s front line have not lived up to their expectations either, and have found the back of the net just six times on the road.
All but one of their last eight head to head meetings here have also featured a maximum of three goals on the charts. As such, expect the final scoreline to feature fewer than 3.5 goals on Saturday.
