The games in the DFB Cup are done after the first round. Even though clubs from the first two leagues continue to stumble on a substandard team, we have to regard the games in the first round of the cup as a mandatory victory for the Bundesliga side. Subsequently, however, the picture changes dramatically.
Leverkusen vs Paderborn Betting Predictions and Odds
Most amateurs are eliminated, so we can look forward to real cracker. This is especially the match between Dortmund and Gladbach in this second round, but there are still several duels between two first division teams. Bayer Leverkusen, for example, will welcome SC Paderborn on Tuesday.
At first glance, this should be a clear matter, but the SCP has shown after the rise in the upper house as an unpleasant opponent who continues to seek his salvation on the offensive. But the results are so far no encouragement in the East Westphalia. On Saturday after the return to the Bundesliga the first victory could be celebrated.
This should have given new courage, especially since Bayer Leverkusen has not won in weeks. The Paderborn will use this advantage on Tuesday, where it is said everywhere that a home win should be clear. Most experts predict a home win in the match between Leverkusen and Paderborn.
We are not so sure. The Werkself is currently not able to retrieve the undoubtedly existing potential, or at least not to translate into positive results. Therefore, we do not consider a surprise to be out of the question. We can imagine, in the match between Leverkusen and Paderborn, a tip on the progress of the guests to place.
Whether many goals will fall, has to show, because in the Cup, it happens that the teams want to stand safe, so as not to fall behind. Let’s see how it will be on Tuesday.
Leverkusen – Statistics & Current Form
In the Bundesliga, it still looks not so bad for Bayer Leverkusen. After nine matchdays, the Werkself are in eighth place. Up to the leader Gladbach missing just four points. From this point of view, everything is fine, but a look at the latest results makes it clear that Bayer is in crisis.
There have been two draws and three defeats in the last five games. International is the wintering in the premier class after three bankruptcies in a row only very theoretically possible. It is currently dangerous in Leverkusen that you lie to yourself a bit, according to the motto: “Well played, but there was more in it.”
The team of Peter Bosz has sometimes catastrophic dropouts. If then some top performers do not deliver as in the second half of last season, then just leave the results. So the Werkself are expecting a tough game. In the duel between Leverkusen and Paderborn just to look at the odds for a home win, something could be too carefree.
On Saturday, at home against Werder Bremen, there was only a 2-2 draw. Ömer Toprak put Bayer early through an own goal in the lead. Shortly after the break, however, the Bremen led with 2: 1. Lucas Alario deserved equalization, but in the end Leverkusen could have lost that match. Currently, it seems to be missing the winning mentality.
Aleksandar Dragovic knows that it will not be easy against Paderborn. After a victory, the Ostwestfalen fueled self-confidence.
“It will be difficult against Paderborn. They won and fueled their confidence. ” – Aleksandar Dragovic
However, the Austrian also talks his team strong, at least playfully, but at some point Leverkusen again needs a victory. A defeat in the DFB Cup would be the temporary icing on the cake of the crisis.
Charles Aranguiz, Leon Bailey, Daley Sinkgraven and Wendell will remain unavailable due to injury. Sven Bender is still complaining about ankle problems and could be replaced by Aleksandar Dragovic. Kai Havertz could join the team after his stomach problems. Paulinho could also be an option.
Expected formation of Leverkusen:
↳ Hradecky – L. Bender, Tah, Dragovic – Demirbay, Baumgartlinger – Bellarabi, Havertz, Weiser – Alario, Volland
↳ Coach: Bosz

Paderborn – Statistics & Current Form
The SC Paderborn threatens to die in beauty this season in the Bundesliga. The Ostwestfalen continue to shape their offensive style of play and are thus a great asset to the House of Lords. However, the team of Steffen Baumgart has proved to be a point supplier. The SCP was long overdue to celebrate its first win of the season.
Now, the knot may have burst, but it is clear that Paderborn will be involved in the relegation battle until the end of the season. However, that was not to be expected otherwise. After nine matchdays, there are just four points left in the table.
After the victory last weekend, however, there is a sense of optimism in the East-Westphalia. Perhaps this will bring the newly promoted on Tuesday in Leverkusen to an unexpected victory, because the bookmakers give before the kick-off between Leverkusen and Paderborn from a clear prediction towards the home side.
On Saturday, the SC Paderborn celebrated in the Bundesliga the first victory since May 2, 2015. Accordingly, the joy was great. The 2: 0 win over Fortuna Dusseldorf was also deserved. Abdelhamid Sabiri met the SCP leadership shortly before the break. Sebastian Schonlau made with the 2: 0 after a good hour everything clear.
It was only a matter of time before this threesome finally comes. The players of the SC Paderborn were previously sure that the first victory can turn the season into a different course.
“With the first win of the season, we now want to put the season on the right track.” – Steffen Baumgart
The Ostwestfalen want to refill now and at best in the DFB Cup in Leverkusen benefit from the newfound confidence.
In the English week, the rotation is always a big topic. Jurgen Gjasula, who has to serve a suspension in the league next weekend, might be a candidate for the bench at BayArena. Marlon Ritter might be an alternative. This also applies to Christopher Antwi-Adjej or Sven Michel. Due to injury only Uwe Hünemeier will not be available.
