Paderborn vs. Borussia Dortmund: Bundesliga – Match Preview

Borussia Dortmund know realistically only victory away at relegation threatened Paderborn will keep their slim Bundesliga title hopes alive.

Paderborn have drawn all three since the league returned from the enforced break, including a 0-0 draw at Augsburg in midweek.

Despite this, they have just four wins in the 2019-20 campaign and are nine points adrift of safety at the start of the Bundesliga weekend.

Borussia Dortmund were beaten 1-0 last time out by champions Bayern Munich, who took a giant step towards defending their title in the process.

Joshua Kimmich’s chipped effort before the break was the difference, meaning Bayern have a seven point advantage at the top.
