Paderborn vs Hamburger SV
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Monday, 28 September 2020
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Benteler Arena (Paderborn).
Benteler Arena will continue to host the Second Division Bundesliga fixtures this season, after Paderborn’s descent to the second tier through the relegation last season. The host started their new edition on the road and was defeated by Kiel with a 1-0 scoreline.
Hamburger SV was at the fourth spot in the campaign last season and being a top-part team in the table puts them in an almost similar form as the relegated side. They will visit on the back of a 2-1 win at home against Dusseldorf in the campaign schedule.
Paderborn vs Hamburger SV Head-to-head (h2h)
- The visitor has recorded three of the last five overall wins.
- Their previous encounter gave a 4-1 home win for Paderborn.
- Only one of their recent five fixtures has seen both teams score.
- None of their clashes since 2004 have ended in a draw.
Paderborn vs Hamburger SV Prediction
Paderborn has to work their way onto the top again if they have to return to the top tier, Bundesliga, next season in their records. However, their start to the second tier this term assures nothing of that kind of result in the future.
Steffen Baumgart will hope in a change in his player’s morale when playing at home. The host enjoys the ground advantage in the clash, but it is not sure how much of it can they use after the defeat last time out in the league.
Besides, Hamburger has a better win rate against Paderborn in their h2h meetings since 2004. The safest bet for the punters in the clash will probably be a double chance favoring Hamburger. At 1.44 odds, it is likely to yield decent returns in the game.
With both teams meeting after a gap of one year, the match will probably be a slow one. That’s why; the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably serve the purpose for the encounter from the goals area for the punters.
