Dusseldorf vs Paderborn Prediction 16 May 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 0-0
Relegation threated Paderborn will travel to Dusseldorf as they take on fellow relegation battlers, Fortuna Dusseldorf in a bottom of the table clash.
Match status: 2019/20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 26
Venue: Merkur Spiel-Arena (Düsseldorf)
Bundesliga whipping boys, SC Paderborn are firmly rooted at the bottom of the table, a whopping ten points away from safety, and there seems to be nothing they can do to get out from there. At this stage, it seems only a matter of when, and not if they’re going down to the lower division. 

Fortuna Dusseldorf are not much better than their visitors, but they can at least take solace in the fact that they’re at least closer to safety. Rheinlanders are currently sixteenth on the log, four points away from safety and will be looking to build on a series of recent encouraging results to ensure they stay up for the next season. 

Fortuna Dusseldorf vs SC Paderborn Team News

Last time out in Bundesliga, Fortuna were held to a disappointing 1-1 away to 10-man Mainz 05. The hosts went ahead in the sixty-first minute via a Levin Oztunali strike, but soon found themselves on the back foot when Phillippe Mateta was sent off for a second bookable offence. Fortuna took full advantage of the resulting numerical strength, and were able to pull a goal back thanks to Kenan Karaman strike late in the second half.

That draw was Fortuna’s second in a row, and they are now unbeaten in their last five Bundesliga matches. The recent improvement in results has seen Uwe Rosler’s side edge closer to safety, and they are now just four points away from Mainz in fifteenth. 

Fortuna are yet to taste victory at home under new manager, Uwe Rosler, but with recent performances, it is only a matter of time before they start enjoying the goodies at home. And, considering the fact that they are facing the poorest side in Bundesliga, it might actually be sooner than expected. 

SC Paderborn simply can’t stop losing as they fell to another disappointing defeat at home to FC Koln in their most recent league outing. The visitors raced to a two goal lead via two first half strikes, and dominated the game for large spells. Dennis Srbeny’s strike gave Paderborn hope of a comeback, but it was simply not meant to be as the hosts succumbed to their fourth straight league defeat.

Paderborn have now failed to win in their last six Bundesliga ties, and they have lost sixteen of the twenty-five league games they have taken part in this term. At this point, Steffen Baumgart’s side will need nothing short of a footballing miracle to survive the drop this term.

Dusseldorf vs Paderborn Predictions

Everything points towards a Fortuna Dusseldorf win in this encounter. The hosts are in much better form, and even if they are playing the game behind closed doors, they still have the home advantage.

Both teams have some of the worst defensive records in the league; hence, you can expect to see a couple of goals in this tie. You can expect most of the action to occur in the second half though, as this has been a recurring theme for both sides in the league this season.
