Facing relegation and sitting on the bottom of the Bundesliga table, Paderborn will be filthy they blew their best chance to collect a much-needed three points with a 0-0 draw against fellow cellar-dweller Fortuna Dusseldorf.
Before we were rudely interrupted, Paderborn had lost their past four home games in the Bundesliga and to state the bleeding obvious they will need to improve on this record if they want to remain in the top-flight of German Football.
Hoffenheim also goes into this game with a poor record of recent and head into this game coming off a 0-3 loss to Hertha BSC last weekend.
They will be desperate to end their winless streak, not able to get the full three points in their past five matches and currently sit ninth on the Bundesliga table.
Playing the lowly Paderborn will be the perfect opportunity for them to get the full three points and they should be able to get the job done in this one.
For good measure and a bit of solid value, I’m backing to win Hoffenheim 2-1 at the solid $8 price.
It is make or break time for Werder Bremen, coming off a very disappointing 1-4 loss to Bayer Leverkusen last weekend and if they don’t pull their socks up they’ll find themself on the one-way Autobahn to the relegation zone.
Werder Bremen have lost six of their last seven Bundesliga matches and facing a Freiburg away is not going to be an easy assignment.
The home team, Freiburg will go into this match with plenty of confidence after a solid effort against LB Leipzig managing salvage a point in their 1-1 draw.
Freiburg has only lost four times at home this season and based on form alone you simply can’t go past them at home and they should take all three points making life even more difficult for Werder Bremen.
