Paderborn vs Stuttgart
German DFB Pokal
Date: 31 January 2023, Tuesday
Kick-off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Home Deluxe Arena (Paderborn).

Paderborn host Stuttgart in the last 16 round of DFB Pokal on Tuesday evening at Home Deluxe Arena.

The team led by Lukas Kwasniok found the late winner on Friday to dispatch Karlsruhe 0-1 on the road as 2. Bundesliga returned to action after the winter break.

Striker Robert Leipertz made the difference by netting the only goal of the game in the second minute of added time four days ago.

It was his eighth goal of the season. Leipertz and Marvin Pieringer will represent the main threat to Stuttgart’s goal on Tuesday as they have combined for 15 goals so far in the 2. Bundesliga campaign.

Paderborn have thus terminated a four-loss streak in the league to climb to the fifth position and return to the contention for the promotion come May.

Kwasniok’s troops are currently seven points shy of the third-placed Heidenheim.

Stuttgart are still at the 15th place of the Bundesliga standings after suffering an expected 2-1 defeat at the hands of RB Leipzig on Friday.

However, we have to say that new head coach Bruno Labbadia did manage to bring some new energy as it was the first loss in three league games this winter for Die Roten.

The mere fact Stuttgart registered more attempts than the likes of Leipzig away at Red Bull Arena (10-9) four days ago says enough about the performance Labbadia’s men have put up on the occasion.

Paderborn vs Stuttgart Head-to-head

  • This will only be the fourth head to head meeting between Paderborn and Stuttgart.
  • Stuttgart won two and drew one of the previous three encounters.
  • The previous H2H match between these two teams came in the 2014/15 Bundesliga campaign when Stuttgart claimed four points in the two clashes against Paderborn.

Paderborn vs Stuttgart Prediction

Both Paderborn and Stuttgart offered decent defensive performances in their respective clashes on Friday. Since the visitors have done it against a much stronger counterpart and in higher division, we fancy them to advance to the next round.

Stuttgart to win & Under 2.5 goals FT is a very exciting pick at the 6.00 odds, while the braver tipsters can take the visitors to win 1-0 at the 10.00 odds.
