Two teams that will surely fight to avoid the relegation this season will return to action on Saturday, when Dusseldorf will play host to Paderborn. Both teams are currently sitting below the relegation zone, and this will be a really interesting fight.
Paderborn (4-17-4) were having a terrible season overall, and even more so in 2020, having won just once in their eight matches in the new year (1-6-1). Moreover, they are win-less in their last six, but have only failed to score once in that span. In any case, they are stuck at the bottom of the standings with 16 points, already 10 points below the relegation zone. They have been quite poor on the road so far (2-7-3), scoring 13 goals and conceding 23 in the process.
Dusseldorf (5-13-7) have struggled a lot during the season and didn’t enter the break in the best shape, but nonetheless, they lost just once in their last eight matches in all competitions (2-1-5). Moreover, they only kept a single clean sheet in that span. They are sitting at the 16th spot of the league table with 22 points, four behind Mainz and the red line. Dusseldorf have struggled at home as well (3-6-3), scoring just 13 goals which is the 2nd worst home offense.
Paderborn won by 0-2 at home in the first round, which was actually the first home win in this match-up, regardless of venue, in the last eight matches. Paderborn have been excellent in this venue over the years (4-1-3) and can challenge the home team for some points here. The two teams have always produced high-scoring matches in this venue so I am going with the Over 2.75 Goals here.
