Union Berlin vs Paderborn Prediction

Both sides were in Bundesliga last season, but Paderborn was relegated and plays in the second division this season. Union Berlin didn’t lose their h2h fixtures with the visitor last season in Bundesliga. The matches were not a high-scoring affair and rather had under 2 goals in each.

With the recent results of their meeting showing a low-scoring affair, the tip for under 3.5 goals from the goals area will probably be the best bet in the encounter. Besides, both teams are in a troubled form in their respective league schedules this term.

There is no doubt that the home win in full-time will probably be the ideal choice in the fixture. The host enjoys the ground advantage and also has an upper hand over the guest in their h2h history. In addition to that, the host is in the top tier contrary to the relegated Paderborn this season.
