Paderborn vs Dortmund Prediction and Betting Preview 31 May 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 1-6
Paderborn vs Dortmund PredictionEver since the German Bundesliga restart earlier this month, Borussia Dortmund had been on a roll, steamrolling their way through every side they had come up against. Not only did they secure wins, they ensured it was executed in style.
Match status: 2019/20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 29
Venue: Benteler Arena (Paderborn)
Firing four unanswered goals past Schalke 04, Die Borussen subsequently saw off sixth-placed Wolfsburg with a comfortable 2-0 away win. They were on cloud-9 and were giving table-toppers Bayern Munich a run for their money.

However, handed a difficult game against arch-rivals Bayern Munich last time out in the highly-anticipated Der Klassiker derby, they were outclassed by the Bavarians. That defeat might well have ended Dortmund’s charge for the title with Bayern Munich a whopping seven points clear at the summit.

It remains to be seen how Der BVB will respond to this loss as they might have already given up hopes of an unlikely league success come the end of the season. However, even with the league title a lost cause, Dortmund will be determined to maintain their second-place on the standings.

For that, they will be required to see off a semi-rejuvenated Paderborn at the Benteler-Arena when both sides square-off on Sunday evening in what is expected to be an entertaining game.

Paderborn vs Borussia Dortmund Team News

Having mustered draws in each of their previous two games, it is fair to say this Paderborn side have become well-grounded in the art of frustrating sides to settle for a point. Perhaps, this is the absurd strategy that head coach Steffen Baumgart has cooked up to ensuring his side escape the drop-zone sooner rather than later.

Truth be told, Paderborn seem to be executing their plans to perfection with impressive draws over Hoffenheim and Augsburg over their previous two games. However, you get the feeling that Baumgart’s side have to offer much more to stand a chance at survival this season.

Sitting rock-bottom on the league standings with 19 points from 28 games, Paderborn will need a miracle of sorts to escape relegation before the season end. As things stand, this set of players will be plying their trade in the league’s second division in the 2020/2021 football season.

Borussia Dortmund, on the other hand, were scheduled to take on arch-rivals Bayern Munich at the Westfalenstadion last time out in what was tagged as the biggest Bundesliga game of the season. It was basically a title-deciding game.

Stringing up series of attack, especially in the first half, Dortmund failed to find a way past Manuel Neuer in goal. In fact, they almost took an early lead through Haaland, the Norwegian’s strike cleared off the line.

However, Jerome Boateng, of all people, fired in the winner late in the first half to secure a narrow 0-1 win for defending champions Bayern Munich, condemning the home side to a frustrating and morale-sapping loss. They will take solace in the fact that they played some exciting football and could easily have won the game on another day.

Injured or Suspended Players

Paderborn: No injuries or suspensions.

Borussia Dortmund: Dan-Axel Zagadou, Mahmoud Dahoud, Nico Shulz, Marco Reus and Erling Haaland.

Paderborn vs Dortmund Predictions

For this fixture, Borussia Dortmund are overwhelming favorites for the win. Ordinarily, they should not even have to break a sweat to see off this weak Paderborn side this Sunday. However, you get the feeling that we might not be seeing lots of goals in this fixture, given Paderborn’s impressive defensive record in recent weeks. Also, goal machine Erling Haaland is currently sidelined with an injury.

The visitors might still be down-trodden by the major defeat to Bayern Munich last time out. As such, they might not produce their best performance. Fancy a narrow Borussia Dortmund win with no more than two goals registered between both sides at the sound of the final whistle.
