The international breaks of this year are over now. From now on, the focus will be on club football until March. In the Bundesliga, it continues with the chairs back in the top group. Rarely was the German House of Lords more adventurous than this season. The top as well as the direct chasing group pull themselves up to place ten.
Dortmund vs Paderborn Soccer Betting Tips
In the middle is Borussia Dortmund. The BVB welcomes on Friday the promoted from Paderborn. In a home game on a Friday there can be no reason for Borussia. In the last 26 Bundesliga home games on a Friday, the Dortmund have not lost. The last bankruptcy under these circumstances was in January 2004 in the derby against Schalke.
In the table, the Borussia slipped to sixth place after losing the classic in Munich. Up to leaders Borussia Mönchengladbach currently missing six counters, but that should not be the end of the world. It looks worse at SC Paderborn. After eleven match days, the climber is just four points. This is clearly the last place.
Up to the saving shore are missing the East Westphalia already six counters. Against this background, in the duel between Dortmund and Paderborn the prediction can only go in the direction of a home victory. However, the team of Steffen Baumgart has proved to be very aggressive in defeats.
Therefore, there could be quite a few goals on Friday in a meeting of two offensively aligned teams. Before the kick-off between Dortmund and Paderborn a tip on over 3.5 goals should be a good choice. However, BVB will probably have the lion’s share of the matches in this game.
Should Borussia fail to win on Friday, Lucien Favre may find it uncomfortable. In any case, the head coach of BVB is no longer exalted. The Swiss therefore has a duty to deliver on Friday and temporarily lead his team to second place with a win.
Dortmund – Statistics & Current Form
Somehow, the BVB bosses had presented the season differently. Enormous investments should lead to a title-capable team, alone on the pitch it is true in this season far too rarely. Undoubtedly, this team of Borussia is highly invested, but sometimes the great potential is not exhausted.
In the meantime, personal vanities can be heard again and again. Jadon Sancho could follow in his footsteps with Ousmane Dembele or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. In addition, there is the mentality problem that is said to the Dortmund and that, despite all denials from the club, probably can not be dismissed out of hand.
However, if the BVB starts in front of its own audience, there is usually nothing to complain about. In the last ten competitive games at Signal Iduna Park, there have been eight wins and two draws. That sounds quite as if in the match between Dortmund and taillight Paderborn the odds on a home win absolutely without alternative.
In the international break the Dortmund had to wipe the evil 0: 4 defeat at Bayern from the clothes. It is not a gift to be on the pitch for two weeks, especially after such a bankruptcy. With an absolute minus performance, however, the Borussians themselves got this soup. Only now there is the possibility for redress.
Lucien Favre did not want to talk about the defeat in Munich. However, it was not clear whether the 0: 4 worked up, or whether the Swiss out of defiance on stubborn. However, the trainer commented on Paderborn. BVB have respect, but Lucien Favre also makes it clear that Dortmund wants to win this match.
Definitely not Thomas Delaney. The Dane pulled at the Danish national team a torn ligament in the ankle. Whether Nico Schulz can come up with his knee problems, will have to show in the short term. Raphael Guerreiro would be the logical alternative. In the offensive, Lucien Favre should decide between Julian Brandt and Thorgan Hazard.
Expected formation of Dortmund:
➠ Bürki – Piszczek, Akanji, Hummels, Schulz – Weigl, Witsel – Sancho, Reus, Brandt – Paco Alcacer
➠ Coach: Favre

Paderborn – Statistics & Current Form
Steffen Baumgart criticizes in these days the ever advancing commercialization in football. At some point, only rich people will be able to watch a match in the stadium. The proletariat from which football originates is increasingly excluded. This development continues with ever-widening salaries and transfer fees.
The Paderborn coach still stands for down-to-earth football and that is one reason why the coach continues to enjoy great popularity in Paderborn, although the team will probably only give a one-year interlude in the Bundesliga this season. Whether the bosses of the SCP will keep their coach loyalty for so long, but still has to show.
After all, Paderborn has won only one victory in the last twelve competitive games, is in the Bundesliga at the end of the classification, was eliminated in the DFB Cup and has just retracted away in this season a draw. That sounds before the match between Dortmund and Paderborn not for a successful prediction on the outsider.
Before the international break, the East Westphalia had an eminently important game in front of the chest. With a win against FC Augsburg, the SCP could have scented morning air. However, after losing the match 0: 1, the newcomer is already standing with his back against the wall. The task in Dortmund does not make the current situation in the run-up to this game easier for the Paderborns.
Nevertheless, the SC Paderborn will also look for luck in the signal Iduna Park on the offensive. The Ostwestfalen can not help it. If they go down, then with waving flags. That’s why Steffen Baumgart makes it clear that his team will be offensive. But he has a little fear that the Borussia really gets rolling.
Personnel it looks like that only Marlon Ritter injury is not available. All national players arrived safely back in Paderborn. Therefore, there is a guesswork to the lineup. Mohamed Dräger would also be an option for the starting lineup, such as Cauly, Christopher Antwi-Adjej, Streli Mamba or Ben Zolinski.
Expected formation of Paderborn:
➠ Zingerle – Jans, Kilian, Schonlau, Collins – Gjasula – Sabiri, Vasiliadis, Pröger, Holtmann – Michel
➠ Coach: Baumgart
