Paderborn will be looking for a win that could potentially push them off the bottom of the Bundesliga when they will host Hoffenheim on Saturday. Hoffenheim met a really bad loss at home against Hertha Berlin but are still pretty safe for the moment.
Paderborn (4-17-5) played a really balanced match on the road against Dusseldorf last week, where neither team had any solid chances and they eventually split the points in a goal-less draw. Prior to that they had four consecutive losses and are now win-less in their last seven matches (0-5-2). Paderborn are stuck at the bottom of the league table with 17 points, ten points below the red line. They have only won two of their 13 home matches (2-10-1) but have scored in each of their last seven (1-5-1).
Hoffenheim (10-11-5) were actually pretty good in their home match against Hertha Berlin but were also quite unlucky. They were missing three key strikers but did create 21 scoring chances. Nonetheless, they failed to score a single goal, they scored an own goal and conceded two more in a short span to eventually lose by 3-0 at home. They are now win-less in their last seven matches in all competitions, conceding at least three goals on four occasions in that span. Hoffenheim are sitting 9th in the league table with 35 points, four behind the top-six. They have been quite feisty on the road (5-3-4) but are win-less in their last four.
Hoffenheim easily won by 0-3 at home in the first round, and they have never lost to Paderborn over the years (4-0-1). Paderborn badly need some points here, but they have struggled a lot. Hoffenheim will still be missing their key strikers but could still have a fighting chance against a struggling Paderborn side.
