Team News: Paderborn
Looking at personnel, there is just the lone fitness concern for the Paderborn manager Lukas Kwasniok to contend with thanks to an almost full-strength group of players. Leopold Zingerle (Hand Injury) is sidelined.
Team News: Regensburg
Due to a mostly full-strength squad, there is only the one fitness issue for the Regensburg manager Mersad Selimbegović to be concerned about. Aygün Yildirim (Fractured Foot) won’t be in action.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Regensburg have it within them to put a goal past this SC Paderborn 07 side, however that might not be as many as they’ll concede.
