Former Bundesliga Teams Square off in Second Division Thriller

Duisburg makes a last ditch attempt at salvaging a catastrophic season start (7:15 p.m UK Time)

Just a couple of years ago both these teams were in the first German league, but unfortunately they were unable to cling to their positions in the second half of the tables. Relegation didn’t come as a surprise to any of them and this season they are trying to return among the elite of German football. Paderborn and Duisburg started their campaign in the Bundesliga 2 on the wrong foot and this match is of critical importance for both teams.

Duisburg Stuck in the Last Place

The home side is winless this season and only has two points to show for after nine rounds, one of the worst starts in club history. Duisburg conceded a bucketful of goals both at home and on the road, so it comes as no surprise that most punters are unwilling to bet even monopoly money on them.

Bookmakers are always quick to respond to such shifts in the punters’ preference and have greatly boosted the odds on Duisburg to win at home. They currently stand at 11/5 and even a double chance wager will result in an excellent return on investment, at 7/11.

A Pale Shadow of the Last Year’s Team

Paderborn was relegated and immediately after the dream of remaining in the first division was shattered, the players chose to leave the club. Not surprisingly, the replacements didn’t rise to the challenge and despite the lower level of Bundesliga 2 football, they struggle at the bottom of the standings.

Seven points in nine matches is simply too little for a club with high expectations and to make matters worse, all of them were secured at home. On the road Paderborn is yet to avoid defeat and even score a goal, so it is clear that they shouldn’t be trusted, even against the last placed team.
