It’s our opinion that Nürnberg look set to use a 4-1-2-1-2 formation in the match, utilising Christian Mathenia, Enrico Valentini, C. Schindler, Asger Sorensen, Tim Handwerker, Johannes Geis, Tom Krauß, Lino Tempelmann, Mats Möller Daehli, Nikola Dovedan and Manuel Schaffler.
Team News: Paderborn
Owing to a completely healthy squad available for selection, the Paderborn manager Lukas Kwasniok has zero fitness worries to report ahead of this game.
We reckon that Paderborn seem most likely to make use of a 4-1-2-1-2 formation by sending out Jannik Huth, Robin Yalcin, Uwe Hünemeier, Marcel Correia, Julian Justvan, Ron Schallenberg, Dennis Srbeny, Marco Schuster, Florent Muslija, Felix Platte and Sven Michel.
We’re thinking that SC Paderborn 07 have the ability to breach the defence of this Nuremberg side, although that may not be as many as the goals that they could concede.
Our tip is for both teams to score in a 2-1 winning margin for Nuremberg after 90 minutes. There looks to be little in this one.
