Paderborn vs Hoffenheim Prediction

Baumgart’s men were held to a goalless draw the last match-day on the road by Dusseldorf. Either team had tried their level best to break the deadlock, but the defense on both sides of the pitch did a good job, and thus the teams had to share spoils at the end of the ninety minutes.

Meanwhile, Hoffenheim were defeated 0-3 at home by Hertha the last match-day. The first half had gone without much event, disregarding the pretty rough plays from the guests and the three subsequent yellow cards they were awarded. However, the own goal scored by the home team in the second half led to their downfall.

Later, the visitors added two more goals to complete their victory. As things stand this at present. the advantage goes to Shreuder’s men. Not only are they hugely experienced in the top flight, but they also were in the run for a Europa League spot the prior season even into the final weeks.

On the other hand, Baumgart’s men have been promoted to the Bundesliga just this previous summer, and they really are struggling to keep up with the intense demands of the German top flight. They are already placed dead last in the table, and have lost 17 of their total 26 fixtures so far.

On top of that, Schreuder’s men have a 100% unbeaten record against this opponent over the years, and in fact have not conceded a single goal from them. And to be frank, Baumgart’s men have lost all of their match-ups against this rival over the years except for a goalless draw.

Considering these observations, it’s deduced that Hoffenheim are the expected candidates to post the win this match-day.
