Paderborn host Schalke 04 at their own Benteler-Arena

It’s time once again for some Bundesliga action, because on Sunday the newcomers Paderborn host Schalke 04 at their own Benteler-Arena. We are going to spend few minutes to examine this fixture during our sure win prediction today.


Just like we actually expected, Paderborn’s start of the season was not even close to being easy. Steffen Baumgart’s team won just one point in its first three matches since the start of the campaign. After two consecutive losses in the first two rounds, Paderborn finally won a point after a 1-1 draw with Wolfsburg at the Volkswagen Arena.


The match in Wolfsburg started really well for the visitors. Paderborn opened the score after just 12 minutes of playing when Cauly used an assist from Streli Mamba and put the ball behind Koen Casteels.


Wolfsburg reacted after the halftime break. In the 56th minute the Croatian midfielder Josip Brekalo recieved the ball from Wout Weghorst and scored.


Meanwhile Schalke 04 had an average start of the new campaign. In three matches played so far, the Royal Blues won once, made one draw and suffered one loss.


In the previous round Schalke achieved their first win for the season. David Wagner’s team hosted Hertha BSC at the Veltins Arena and brought joy to its fans with a solid 3-0 win. It was a pretty awkward game, because the visitors scored themselves two own goals. Niklas Stark and Karim Rekik had the bad luck to do it, while Schalke’s Jonjoe Kenny finished the job for the Royal Blues after an assist from Bastian Oczipka.


In our sure win prediction today we can make the conclusion that both Paderborn and Schalke 04 have some problems at the moment, starting the season not in the most convincing way possible. We think that this match is going to be really competitive, so let’s see.
