SC Paderborn vs Borussia Dortmund 31.05.2020

Dortmund are still licking their wounds following the bitter 0-1 loss at home to rivals Bayern Munich which severely dented their title aspirations and all but handed Bayern their 8th successive title on a silver platter. They did play well though but just couldn’t break down a stubborn Bayern defence that is in all likelihood going to win them the title. Paderborn are rock bottom on the league table although they have managed to string three draws in the three games they have played after the break. We expect Dortmund to come out like a wounded buffalo to try and recover some of the lost ground. We are therefore predicting they will win the game at half time and full time.
