Venue: Benteler Arena

 

An epic clash is about to take place between Paderborn and Eintracht Frankfurt. These teams had a good run last week and the last thing they want to do is lose their momentum and compromise their rise in the Bundesliga table.

 

The contenders

Paderborn

An unstoppable Paderborn pulled off a stalemate against Leverkusen. As a matter of fact, the match could have ended in their favor had it not for Karim Bellarabi’s late equalizer.

 

Nevertheless, the even steven finish caused an upward rise in the club’s Bundesliga rank. It also showed a major improvement after suffering from 2 consecutive defeats.

 

Paderborn had a short stint on top of the Bundesliga table until the defending champion, Bayern Munich thrashed them with 4 massive goals.

 

Eintracht Frankfurt

Frankfurt also made an impression last week after snatching a 3-2 win against FC Cologne.

 

Alexander Meier scored twice during the first and second half to ensure a comfortable lead for Frankfurt. Cologne could only watch in astonishment as their opponent easily erased their lead.

 

With the above-mentioned victory, Frankfurt catapulted its rank to the 5th spot of the Bundesliga table.

 

Possible head turner

Paderborn must readily watch out for Meier. The last thing they want to happen is experience the frustration that Cologne had when it went against Frankfurt. While it is true that Paderborn is the match’s online betting favorite, it cannot afford to be complacent as this may put a stop in their attempt for a better and higher rank.

 

Prediction

Paderborn 1-2 Eintracht Frankfurt
