Hoffenheim and SC Paderborn have a long tradition of playing league games, and their latest showdown will happen on November 1st. Hoffenheim has the home side advantage, but the guests are not coming here to surrender due to this fact.
Considering the playing style of both teams, we expect a lot of fire and liveliness on the field. Hoffenheim will have to work hard to record the victory.
Hoffenheim team news:
German media before Hoffenheim’s visit to the current Bayern champion talked a lot about the possible departure of coach Schreuder. Still, he constantly claimed that his team played good football and that it was only a matter of time before it would be seen on the results.
Obviously Schreuder was right since a win over Bayern Munich gave his players a lot of motivation. After that triumph, Hoffenheim registered championship victories against Schalke and Hertha, and on Tuesday won the DFB Cup match without too much trouble against Duisburg.
Despite the absence of Zuber, the defense of Hoffenheim seems to be firmer from match to match. The return of Kramarić has made the whole team more attacking oriented. Kramarić has scored in both championship appearances so far and will be a significant asset to Schreuder as the season progresses.
Probable lineup: Baumann, Akpoguma, Vogt, Hubner, Grillitsch, Kaderabek, Rudy, Geiger, Skov, Bebou, Kramarić
Paderborn team news:
Paderborn scored just one point in the opening eight championship games, but last week Baumgart’s team defeated Fortuna Dusseldorf. This is showing their intention to fight hard to stay in the league. Paderborn has shown the least of all the teams so far this season and is a major favorite for relegation.
Baumgart’s team had good periods of play, mostly at the beginning of the matches, but also regularly losing in the last minutes. Paderborn also tormented Bayer in the DFB Cup on Tuesday . Still, they concluded the competition with a minimal defeat in Leverkusen, so now Baumgart and his players can fully commit to the fight to stay in first-team society.
Probable lineup: Zingerle, Drager, Kilian, Schonlau, Collins, Cauly, Vasiliadis, Sabiri, Proger, Zolinski, Antwi-Adjej
This will be an interesting match for sure. Both teams have their chances and are eager to win the match. Although Hoffenheim is a favorite, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the guests are able to score.
