Paderborn faces Koln
Paderborn faces Koln at the Benteler-Arena in a first game from the 25th week of the Bundesliga. In the following football prediction tips we will discuss this game with you.
Most likely for Paderborn this season won’t be a happy ending. The club is at the bottom of the Bundesliga at this moment being 18th with 16 points won. The team have won just four matches so far which explains why they are in such a position, being 9 points away from the safe zone. On theory Paderborn can still survive, but at this point it just does not seem very likely.
Last week Paderborn conceded their 16th loss for the season and their fourth in the last five rounds. Steffen Baumgart’s team traveled to Mainz, but suffered a 0-2 defeat at the Opel Arena. It was just another empty performance by the team.
Streli Mamba and Luca Kilian won’t be avaliable for Paderborn against the Billy Goats on Friday. They are currently injured.
Koln approach this game from 11th place in the table. The Billy Goats basically saved themselves from relegation since the arrival of their new manager which enormously improved their performance. In the last five rounds Koln suffered two defeats, but they also win three times. Right now they have 29 points and they can breathe much more freely.
Last week Koln achieved their 9th win for the campaign. Markus Gisdol’s team hosted Schalke 04 at the RheinEnergieStadion and enjoyed a 3-0 win. Sebastiaan Bornauw and Jhon Cordoba scored in the first half, while Schalke’s Alexander Nubel scored himself an own goal after the break.
Jhon Cordoba will miss the next game because of suspension, while Birger Verstraete, Thomas Kessler and Christian Clemens are injured.
That’s our football prediction tips for the Bundesliga fixture between Paderborn and Koln on Friday. Can the visitors claim another win? We won’t be surprised.
