Home advantage has come to the rescue just once for Paderborn this season. Given that the hosts have not been faring well with this foe in any their previous four clashes here either, count on Union Berlin to pile on Paderborn’s misery this weekend.

Paderborn vs Union Berlin Prediction
Paderborn secured what was only their second win of the season last week after they edged past Bremen with a 1-0 scorecard. The hosts looked certain to bag no more than a point in that latter matchup though after the scores remained goalless towards the closing stages.
However, Sven Michel found the back of the net in the 90th minute, to ensure that all three points went their way.
Nevertheless, with just eight measly points in the bag, the home side are currently level with rock-bottom side FC Koln.
Union Berlin, on the other hand, bounced back to winning ways in their most recent matchup by slotting two unanswered goals past FC Koln at home. The visitors have tasted defeat just once in their last five Bundesliga matchups, and have garnered twelve points from a possible fifteen in the process as well.
To make matters worse for the Paderborn faithful, the hosts have been branded as the worst home side in the cluster. Taking into account that Union Berlin are also unbeaten in their last four trips here, Paderborn are unlikely to pick up the bragging rights in this one.
Be that as it may, their last two h2h games at this venue have witnessed both teams share the spoils. Hence, the safest punt would be opting for a double chance.
Furthermore, Union Berlin have been keen on getting their names on the scoresheet in their recent outings. They have scored eight goals from their last four trips on the road in all competitions.
Considering that three of their previous five visits to this stadium have also been high scoring affairs, expect no dearth of goals when the two sides lock horns this weekend.
