Paderborn are rock-bottom of the league table with only two Bundesliga victories all season. They have now failed to score in five of their past six defeats in all competitions, and also have the worst home record in the division (W1, D1, L6).
The hosts’ home league fixtures are averaging 3.50 goals so far, mainly due to their poor defensive record, which has seen them conceded an average of 2.25 goals per game at the Benteler Arena. Furthermore, Paderborn have conceded a Bundesliga-high of five home goals inside the first 15 minutes, and seen eight in total in this period – another league best.
Eintracht Frankfurt’s struggles continue as their recent 4-2 loss to Cologne extended their winless Bundesliga run to six (D1, L5). Across all competitions, they have won just one in nine, keeping zero clean sheets within those fixtures, with the last coming in October.
Adi Hütter’s side have been ‘all-or-nothing’ away from home for a while now, as only two of their past 20 away games (in all competitions) have finished as draws inside 90 minutes (W7, L11). They are on a four-match league away losing streak, winning one of the last ten and losing eight in the process.
Players to watch: Streli Mamba is Paderborn’s Bundesliga top scorer with five goals, with four arriving before half-time, and serving to open the scoring on two occasions.
Martin Hinteregger has netted each of Frankfurt’s last two Bundesliga away goals, but has won just two of six games this season in which he’s scored.
Stat attack: Paderborn’s last three H2H encounters with Frankfurt have all featured over 3.5 goals.
Eleven of Frankfurt’s 16 league matches has seen both teams score (68.75%).
Nine of Frankfurt’s last 11 away games in the league have seen both teams score.
What time is kick off?
The match begins at 18:00.
