The Match Is Over. Score: 1-2
Paderborn and Koln will face each other on Friday in the first match of the 25th round in the Bundesliga. The home side are languishing at the bottom of the standings with 16 points, nine behind the first team in the safe places, while Koln are comfortably sitting on 11th position with 29 points.
Match status: 2019-20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 25
Venue: Benteler Arena (Paderborn)
High-flying Koln will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on rock-bottom Paderborn at Benteler-Arena.

Koln were struggling in the first half of the season, but they seem to be on top of their game ahead of the trip to North Rhine-Westphalia. The Billy Goats have been scoring goals for fun of late, and we are positive that they will take advantage of the home team’s current form.

Paderborn suffered a 2-0 loss to Mainz at the weekend, with the team extending their losing run to three games.

The rock-bottom side are low on confidence ahead of Matchday 25, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the in-form visitors. Koln attacker Jhon Cordoba, who has found his goal-scoring touch of late, is likely to make life difficult for the opposition defenders.

Paderborn will be desperate for the win when they welcome the flying Billy Goats to Benteler-Arena in Friday’s Bundesliga skirmish.

Mainz put clear daylight between themselves and precarious Paderborn with Robin Quaison and Karim Onisiwo leading the way towards a 2-0 win for the hosts last Saturday afternoon as an impending return to Zweite Bundesliga is slowly becoming a dreaded reality for the struggling boys in blue.

Honeymoon is over, as Paderborn’s uprising has been cut short; Steffen Baumgart’s men are yet to win a game following the closing days of January, since when they’ve managed four defeats and a point off ghastly Schalke 04 in Gelsenkirchen, cementing their dead last place on the Bundesliga table.

Their performances at Benteler-Arena lately has been decent but usually without results to show up for it as the Black & Blues went on a losing run post-December.

Following a demolition job in the capital city two weeks ago, the frisky Billy Goats continued their good run of form as FC Köln earned all three points against FC Schalke 04 last Saturday evening at the RheinEnergieSTADION in Cologne.

It was the seventh triumph in last nine games for Markus Gisdol and his band of merry men as the Goats continue their rampage; relegation worries are things of the past as Köln shot up the table.

They currently reside 11th on the Bundesliga standings, with a game in hand and serious chance of mounting a Europa League push, should they maintain their brilliant form.

Improving during their outings outside of Cologne would be a huge step up and potentially a deciding factor whether the Goats are capable of reaching continental football but at the moment, their efficiency on travels is hard to estimate simply because they’ve played so little away games since their rejuvenation started.
