Paderborn vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction and Betting Preview, 19 Jan 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 1-4
Paderborn vs Bayer Leverkusen PredictionPaderborn are running out of time now and have to start getting results if they are to escape relegation this season. But, they might have to wait a little longer to kick-start their revival as they play host to tough opponents, in Bayer Leverkusen.
Match status: 2019-20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 18
Venue: Benteler Arena (Paderborn)
SC Paderborn seem set to make an immediate return to Bundesliga 2, having just gained promotion this term. Steffen Baumgart’s men have not found life in the top flight easy, and are firmly rooted at the bottom of the pile. They have picked up just three wins all season and have just twelve points – six away from safety. If their fairytale rise from the Bundesliga third division is to continue, they have to sort themselves fast.

Bayer Leverkusen will feel they should be doing better on the standings. Die Werkself haven’t exactly had a magnificent season so far, but they haven’t been too bad. The Leverkusen club are currently seventh on the table, one point from Freiburg in sixth and a further four away from Dortmund in fourth. They will certainly be looking to make a statement here, and go on to push for Champions League qualification as the second half of the season begins.

Paderborn vs Bayer Leverkusen Team News

Paderborn recovered from a 2-0 defeat away at Borussia Monchegladbach to defeat Eintracht Frankfurt at home in only their third league win of the season. Goals from Abdelhamid Sabiri and Sebanstian Schonlau were enough to secure a narrow 2-1 victory.

The newly-promoted side are only just beginning to find some rhythm following a dismal start to the season, and have recorded two wins and a draw in their last four league matches. In attack, they have been uninspiring and have found the back of the net just 20 times all season – the third worst record in the league. They are not much better defensively, and have conceded 36 goals so far.

Furthermore, Paderborn have one of the worst records of Bundesliga sides playing at home. Paderborn have dropped points in seven of their last nine matches at home, but to be fair, they do not go down without a fight. They have scored in all, but one of their nine matches at home, scoring a total of 12 goals in the process. However, they come up against a Bayer Leverkusen side which boasts the second best away record in the league.

The Leverkusen side brought an end to their two-match losing streak with a comfortable 1-0 win over Mainz in yet another away win in their last league match. Bayer Leverkusen outplayed their hosts for a greater part of the fixture and finished the match with twice as many shots as their opponents.

Bayer Leverkusen could do with improving their shooting accuracy. They play quite a high number of shots per game, but have managed to convert just twenty-three of them into goals. Conversely, Leverkusen boast one of the best defensive records in the league. They have been breached just twenty-one times all season – joint-second best record in the league. However, it is worth noting that Bayer have conceded eleven goals in their last eight league outings alone.

On the road, Leverkusen have been quite impressive. They have lost just thrice in their last eight away games, gathering fifteen points in the process.

Paderborn vs Bayer Leverkusen Predictions

We wouldn’t put it past Paderborn to get a result here. They are experiencing an upturn in form, and will be further boosted by playing in front of their home fans. Be that as it may, Bayer Leverkusen are a pretty decent side away from home. Hence, a draw looks the more likely result here.
