Match Preview

Back-to-back promotions and just a second-ever Bundesliga campaign for Paderborn starts at the Bay Arena, where Bayer Leverkusen failed to score in just one of their 17 league fixtures last season.
Furthermore, the hosts picked up 11 wins in their 17 league fixtures from the turn of 2019, lifting them from ninth to fourth. Free-scoring Leverkusen averaged 3.35 match goals per home fixture last term, with more than half (nine of 17) witnessing over 3.5 match goals.
Leverkusen tend to start their games fast, scoring first in 12 of last season’s 17 Bundesliga home games and going on to win eight. Nine of their last 12 Bundesliga home goals came in the first half.
In their only previous Bundesliga campaign in 2014/15, Paderborn finished bottom losing half of their 34 matches. However, they started that season unbeaten in four (W2, D2) and even topped the table after matchday four. On the flip side, Paderborn haven’t won their season opener in any flight of German football since 2011/12 (D3, L4).
Paderborn struggled away from home in their last Bundesliga campaign, failing to win 14 of their 17 trips in 2014/15 (W3, D4, L10). Eight of those ten losses were by at least a two-goal margin and Paderborn led at half-time in just two of their 34 games. Even in the second division last season, Paderborn lost eight of their 17 trips with five of those ‘to nil’.
Players to watch: Kai Havertz (LEV) was the first goal scorer in five of the six Bundesliga home matches that he scored in last season.
Albeit in the lower leagues, Streli Mamba (PAD) has two goals and three assists in his last two season openers.
Stat attack: Both teams scored before half-time in just three of Leverkusen’s last ten Bundesliga home games.
Both teams scored in eight of Leverkusen’s last ten Bundesliga fixtures.
Over 3.5 match goals were seen in half of Paderborn’s 34 Bundesliga 2 games last season.
