SV Sandhausen will be looking for an improved result here after a 3-0 Bundesliga 2 loss in their previous game against Karlsruhe.
Philipp Hofmann (3'), Dominik Kother (30') and Christoph Kobald (46') scored for Karlsruhe.
It has been all too rare in recent times that SV Sandhausen haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that Sandhausen have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, shipping 8 goals in the process. That kind of trend won’t necessarily be continued into this game, of course.
Analysis of their past results shows that SV Sandhausen:
- are unbeaten in the league by SC Paderborn 07 in their last 4 games.
- have left without a victory over SC Paderborn 07 in their previous 2 league games.
- have not been beaten in their last 2 home league matches.
SC Paderborn 07
Paderborn will go into this encounter after a 1-0 Bundesliga 2 win to defeat Hannover in their previous game.
The only player to score from SC Paderborn 07 was Johannes Dörfler (26').
In the course of their 6 latest matches, Steffen Baumgart’s SC Paderborn 07 have found the back of the net 11 times, giving them the goals per game average of 1.83.
Pre-game facts show that SC Paderborn 07:
- are winless against SV Sandhausen when having played them away from home in the previous 3 league matches.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 10 matches in the league. Who knows how long it might last, too.

Team News: SV Sandhausen
Besar Halimi (Knee Injury) and Julius Biada (Torn Muscle Fibre) will not be taking part for Sandhausen manager Uwe Koschinat.
Team News: Paderborn
Paderborn manager Steffen Baumgart has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Sven Michel (Intraarticular ligament fissure) and Maximilian Thalhammer (Metatarsal Fracture) are not able to play.
Here, we’re thinking that Paderborn will need things to go their way to score against this SV Sandhausen lineup who we think will likely be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a good tussle with a 1-0 winning margin for SV Sandhausen at the end of this one.
Looking forward to this.
