Paderborn vs RB Leipzig Prediction

Paderborn salvaged a point for the first time in four games after the hosts played out a six-goal thriller with Dortmund on the road. The hosts only have themselves to blame for losing out on the win though, in that latter matchup, as the home side were three goals up by the end of the break.

However, Paderborn failed to keep their foes at bay post the restart and subsequently made the trip back home with no more than a share of the spoils.

Nevertheless, the hosts are still dwelling at the bottom of the ladder, with no more than five points to their name.

On the other hand, RB Leipzig picked up their fifth consecutive win in all competitions in their respective matchup with FC Koln. The away slotted four goals past their counterparts in that clash, whilst conceding just once in the process.

It is also worth mentioning that the guests have been branded as the best away side in the cluster as far as statistics go. Furthermore, RB Leipzig are unbeaten in their last three meetings with this foe overall as well.

Hence, count on RB Leipzig to make light work of the struggling Paderborn in this one.

Additionally, seven of the fourteen goals for Paderborn this season have come from their clashes on home soil. Meanwhile, the visiting contingent have not looked solid inside their defensive third, especially on the road.

The fact that they have just one clean sheet to boast of from their previous five outings in the Bundesliga certainly stands as a testament to the aforementioned. As such, expect Paderborn to bag a consolation goal at the least in this one.
