Struggling Paderborn will be hoping to pull off an upset when they welcome high-flying Borussia Dortmund in the upcoming league round. It’s 18th vs 2nd and the home crowd will have moderate expectations.
There should be plenty of energy on the pitch in this game, as both sides have had time to recuperate from their last game. Let's hope both teams are ready to give it all.
