Wolfsburg vs Paderborn
Date: Saturday, 31 August 2019
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Volkswagen Arena (Wolfsburg).
Wolfsburg missed out on the Champions League by just three points in 2018-19 and is back with a vengeance to make reparations for that. They have won both their opening two fixtures and scored two or more goals in both these matches, in return for a single one.
Last time around, their defense had played spoilsport in keeping them away from the podium. The frontline had scored a single goal fewer than the third-placed Leipzig but conceded an embarrassing 21 more.
So far, they have done justice to their plan. They have started with a 100% winning record and has considerably improved their defense. Now, with the home advantage for the third tie, coupled with the arrival of a team much lesser in stature, the upper hand definitely belongs to the hosts.
Not only Paderborn is a new addition to this competition from the lower division, but they have absolutely failed in making any kind of presence felt in the Bundesliga till this point. They lost both their first two ties and conceded three or more goals in both as well.

Wolfsburg vs Paderborn Prediction
Wolfsburg has been one of the best teams in the competition for quite some time and is already a major contender for the European spots. Moreover, they have the home advantage and is going against a side that has just gained promotion from the lower division, and expectedly considerably lacks in top-tier experience.
Coupling these with the away handicap of Paderborn, we get our clear favorites. In addition, Wolfsburg is on a 12-match unbeaten run, and a four-tie winning run, whereas, their counterparts are winless in their last five fixtures, and has a perfect losing record in 2019-20 Bundesliga.
Finally, the hosts of the day have a 100% unbeaten record against this rival, and excluding a draw in 2014, holds a 100% winning record in official meetings.
With these stats clearly painting a picture, count on the home team to make it three wins out of three matches this Saturday.
