Bundesliga: SCP vs BVB

Dortmund is still pursuing very closely Bayern Munich in the race to the silver plate. However, they are currently at a disadvantage, especially after the unfortunate defeat with the minimum score before this direct competitor, the gap between them and Bayern in the rankings has widened to 7 points. 

Currently, the army of Coach Lucien Favre is ranked 2nd with 57 points. That gap in the context of the season is only 6 rounds, the chances of Dortmund's championship are becoming increasingly fragile. The last defeat also touched the pride of the black and yellow team because Bayern Munich has always been a thorn in Dortmund's eyes for many years. Surely they will do their best in the rest to be able to turn the tables.

In terms of form, Borussia Dortmund have won 4 of the last 5 rounds. Before losing to Bayern, they won 4 matches in a row. The trip here to see Paderborn at the bottom of the table is probably not too difficult for the Dortmund players to get 3 points completely. Despite having to play away from home, fortunately for Dortmund, their opponents this weekend have almost given up and are mentally prepared to return to play in the First Division. Paderborn are the newly promoted side this season after finishing second in the Bundesliga II last season. Entering the football season of 2019/2020, the goal that Steffen Baumgart's teachers and teachers set is only to succeed in relegation but this is impossible for them. Paderborn is currently ranked bottom of the standings with only 19 points gained after 28 rounds.

The distance of 9 points from the safety group is very difficult for Paderborn to level because they are currently in extremely bad shape. In the past 10 rounds, this team cannot even win any match. Broadly speaking, from the beginning of the season until now, Paderborn has only 4 wins. The poor attack and defense was too loose, so Paderborn could not improve his playing ability. Therefore, despite having a field advantage, but receiving a strong opponent like Borussia Dortmund, it is impossible for Paderborn to win the score in this match.

Currently, a victory may not help Dortmund narrow the gap with the top team Bayern, but will help them consolidate the second place with fierce competition from RB Leipzig, Leverkusen and M'gladbach. And vice versa, if they stumble, everything will become out of control for coach Favre and the students. But before a weaker opponent like Paderborn, they certainly are confident and brave enough to have a bold victory. In terms of head-to-head record, Paderborn is a favorite opponent of Dortmund when the black and yellow team unbeaten in the last 5 times encountered Paderborn, including 3 wins and draw 2 matches. The last time was at the first leg, Lucien Favre's army was surprised to let the opponent hold 3-3 at Signal Iduna Park. But at this point, the three points are almost in Dortmund's hands because Paderborn's weakness is hard to overcome. With his class, it is not difficult for Dortmund to have a victory in this trip.
