Make a bet
Paderborn remained confined to the rock-bottom of the table with only 19 points from 28 games and it looks certain they will relegate.
Their last game which ended 0:0 away at Augsburg further put salts to their injuries leaving them with 3 draws since the restart of the Bundesliga.
It is even more damning that in their entire 11 Bundesliga matches played this year, they have only managed 1 win way back in January. Other results have been 6 losses and 4 draws.
Their home form is even more agonizing as they have failed to win a single game in the last 5 matches. Without any clean sheet kept, they have lost 4 of those matches and only picked 1 draw. Those 4 lost games recorded over 2.5 goals while the 5 matches in totality saw both teams to score recorded.
Borussia Dortmund Form

Although, their away form has not been super regular with just 3 wins from their last 5 matches, with 2 losses in between. But you should not bet against them as they face a dead Paderborn, especially now that they look like a wounded lion.
