Paderborn vs Schalke: Top Free Betting Tips

Paderborn will be committed to retaining their home-winning form against Schalke in Round 8 of 2. Bundesliga on Friday, 29 September. The Royal Blues enter Benteler Arena after losing all three points against St Pauliin German second division.

Match result prediction: Draw

Schalke have outclassed Paderborn by winning all of the three H2Hs at Benteler Arena. However, the Royal Blues have suffered three defeats in the previous five league outings while winning just one game. On the other hand, Paderborn have also been inconsistent featuring two wins, two defeats and a draw in the aforementioned period. Therefore, we predict the teams to share the points in this encounter.

Total goals prediction: under 2.5 goals

Four of the previous five H2H meetings between these two clubs have finished with Under 2.5 Goals. Paderborn has found the back of the net four times in the previous two league outings at Benteler Arena. On the other hand, Schalke has also failed to secure a huge total of goals recently, scoring just two goals in three road fixtures this season. Given these statistics, we predict a total of Under 2.5 Goals as our second pick for his game.

Correct score prediction: 1-1 Draw

Paderborn has secured a scoring string but managed to score just one goal in three of the recent four league games. On the other hand, Schalke has also been unable to score more than once in any of the last three road fixtures, scoring just once in two games. Defensively, both teams have conceded only one goal in two of their respective aforestated periods. Therefore, we predict the teams to conclude the game by a 1-1 scoreline.
