Union Berlin vs Paderborn Prediction & Match Preview

Union Berlin vs Paderborn Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview for German Bundesliga clash on Tuesday, 16 June 2020. Kick off 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET at the Stadion An der Alten Forsterei.

Steffen Baumgart’s men need to win all their remaining matches, while Bremen and Dusseldorf have to lose all their remaining fixtures in order for Baumgart’s men to avoid relegation.

Suffice it to say they are under enormous pressure, and Union Berlin who need a single win to ensure their safety from getting the boot, are surely the favorites.

Union Berlin vs Paderborn Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The last time these two locked horns, spoils were shared with a 1-1 scoreline.
  • Both teams scored goals in the past two fixtures.
  • Two of the previous four clashes saw the Iron Ones keeping clean sheets.
  • At this venue, the latest encounter ended in a 1-3 win.
  • Only once have the guests failed to score goals at this stadium.

Union Berlin vs Paderborn Prediction

The Iron Ones recorded a 1-2 win on the road the last match-day, against FC Koln. All through the match-up, the guests showcased domination, and they should have closed out the game with a clean sheet.

However, the hosts scored their consolation goal in the injury time.

In the meantime, Baumgart’s men lost 1-5 at home the past game week, against Bremen. The visitors were in terrific form, and the scoreline would have been even worse if not for their missed penalty.

The guests scored three goals even before the 40th minute, and later added two more goals – all while conceding a single goal in return.

At present, Baumgart’s men are severe underdogs. The reason being, even if they win all their remaining fixtures, the best they could aspire for is to get to the Relegation playoffs – and that too seems highly improbable.

Not only do they have to secure the maximum of nine points, but they want Bremen as well as Dusseldorf to lose all fixtures too.

As such, Baumgart’s men will be forced to go after a win right from the get-go, and this will certainly make them prone to mistakes. The Iron Ones, who need just three more points to extend their stay in the top flight, will take advantage of the fact that they can play it safe.

They will concentrate on their defense well, which will put more of Baumgart’s men on the opposition half, leaving their half of the pitch exposed.

At one point or the other, the hosts will certainly get through to the other end and slot in a goal. On top of that, Baumgart’s men have easily been the worst team in the whole competition by a mile.

They have conceded the most number of goals, have won the least number of fixtures (just 4 of their total 31), and have had a total of just two wins away from home this whole season. By all means, expect a win for Union Berlin this Tuesday.
