Paderborn vs Schalke 04 (Bundesliga, 17.12.2014)

Paderborn are the newly promoted Bundesliga side that impressed almost everyone as they positioned themselves on the 10th place even with a stream of mixed results. Against Schalke, Paderborn will go for the three points and a chance to overcome Hannover 96 in the table.

Schalke have an extensive list on injuries, but they have looked rather solid in Bundesliga with a three man backline. They are currently on the 6th place with 23 points, one point short of the last Champions League place. The Royal Blues will rely on Choupo Moting and Huntelaar to bring the win in a time where it would be wise to concentrate more on Bundesliga. Schalke’s last four matches have seen at least three goals scored, but in away games they have three defeats and one win against Stuttgart.
Paderborn managed to frustrate Wolfsburg with a 1-1 draw that saw both goals being scored by Paderborn players. Their best players are Hunemeier and Wemmer, both great defensive players. Bertels and Koc will miss with injuries, while Saglik could see a place in the starting eleven. Consequently, Paderborn have lost only one of their last four matches, and by placing in the first 10 teams they have achieved the task at hand.

Where Schalke always lose the match is in the midfield area, where they need more stability, and the Paderborn match could end in Schalke applying pressure from the very start. The two teams met before in a friendly match where Schalke 04 struggled to win and in the end got the win with a minimal advantage. A draw is the most likely outcome, and Titan bet offers 3.40 odds for it.
