THE TEAM NEWS

RB LEIPZIG

  • RB Leipzig responded to their disappointing draw with Hertha as they put four goals past Koln last week and they will be confident of putting in another strong display in front of goal as they host bottom side Paderborn.
  • Leipzig got off to a poor start as they fell behind in the seventh minute but goals from Patrik Schick, Christopher Nkunku and Timo Werner turned the game on its head before Daniel Olmo added a fourth after the hosts had pulled one back.
  • They return to home soil looking for their first win at the Red Bull Arena since the Bundesliga resumed but they are unlikely to be able to recall Chelsea loanee Ethan Ampadu who has only just returned to training following a back injury although Kevin Kampl could feature.

PADERBORN

  • Paderborn were on the end of a hammering against Borussia Dortmund last week as their three-match unbeaten run came to an end and with relegation edging ever closer, they are running out of matches to save themselves.
  • Paderborn did well in the first half as they managed to keep the visitors goalless but they were powerless in the second period as Dortmund opened up a two-goal lead and despite pulling one back through Uwe Hunemeier, they conceded a further four in the final 16 minutes.
  • The 1-6 loss will be difficult to respond to on this trip to RB Leipzig who are likely to throw everything forward like Dortmund did and they could he hampered by the loss of Gerrit Holtmann and Sebastian Schonlau who both picked up knocks last week.

THE PREDICTION

RB Leipzig showed some of their best side in attack last week as they beat Koln by four goals and they will presented with a brilliant chance to build on that as they host Paderborn. The visitors conceded six last week in what was another nail in their relegation coffin and they could be in for further heartache here. Leipzig are yet to win on home soil since the league started but should have little trouble in this contest and are likely to win by at least three clear goals.
