Today’s top betting predictions come from Germany’s Bundesliga 2. The new football season is slowly but surely kicking off across Europe. The German Football Association (Deutscher Fußball-Bund) has been smart enough to have the second tier start off two weeks early to give them more media and fan attention. With the top leagues still in prep mode, the early start to Bundesliga 2 allows it to gather more attention not just from Europe, but on a worldwide scale.
Hertha Berlin v Wehen Wiesbaden Prediction
Making the best betting picks on a daily basis requires a careful analysis of both teams in a given match. Hertha Berlin were relegated from the Bundesliga last season, so now they find themselves in Germany’s second tier looking to climb their way back in the big time. However, they started with a defeat in the opener last week (1-0 to Fortuna Dusseldorf), and it does not look like they will be among the top teams even in Bundesliga 2. Hertha’s issues stretch far across the football pitch. The club is in dire straits financially.
The club faces an uncertain future despite a recent decision to allow them a postponement of their repayments on a high-interest loan. The club barely managed to negotiate a repayment of their 40-million-euro loan until 2025 as it was previously scheduled for repayment this year. A more detailed article on Hertha’s current financial state and struggles can be found at RFI.Fr. Germany’s second tier is extremely competitive, and it will be very difficult for the Berliners who are set to rely this year on their talented juniors and players from the academy.
In terms of the opposition in today’s top betting prediction from Bundesliga 2, up against Hertha is a club that’s headed in far better direction. SV Wehen Wiesbaden have been on an upward trajectory in recent years. SV Wehen Wiesbaden, commonly known as Wehen Wiesbaden, is a professional football club based in Wiesbaden, Germany.
Wehen Wiesbaden was founded in 1926 and has experienced fluctuations between different German football divisions over the years. The club has mostly competed in the lower divisions of German football, but they have had some notable achievements in recent years.
One of the club’s most significant accomplishments came in the 2007-2008 season when they reached the semi-finals of the DFB-Pokal (German Cup), an impressive feat for a lower-tier team. They have also had several appearances in the 3. Liga, the third tier of German football.
Last year, they earned a promotion to Bundesliga 2, and they started the season with a decent 1:1 draw at home against Magdeburg.
Paderborn v Vfl Osnabrück Prediction
The second game from today’s Bundesliga 2 predictions is Paderborn v Vfl Osnabrück. Both sides recorded good results in the pre-season, but started off badly last week. Paderbon had a man sent off in just the sixth minute and perhaps that was the key to their horrific 5:0 defeat at the hands of Greuther Furth. Osnabrück also lost, although in a much more respectable fashion – 2:3 at home against Karlsruher. Having said that, a decent football tip here is that both teams would be eager to make amends and put on a much better performance this time, particularly Paderborn.
SC Paderborn 07 was founded in 1907 and has a long history of competing in various German football divisions. The club experienced a notable rise in recent years, achieving promotions to higher tiers of German football. Paderbon enjoyed a season in the Bundesliga back in 2019-20, and have been in Germany’s second tier ever since. However, they have been improving in the league standings each season – 9th, 7th, and 6th last year. If they manage to hold up this trend, they could make the playoffs this season. The team plays its home matches at the Home Deluxe Arena, a stadium located in Paderborn.
The stadium has a seating capacity of approximately 15,000 spectators, and a sellout is expected for the team’s opening home game this Friday night, August 4th, 2023. At home, Lukas Kwasniok´s side has won 12 out of their last 17 home games. They usually produce high-scoring games at this arena with a bet on Over 2.5 Goals cashing out in 13 of their last 17 home fixtures.
Continuing our analysis of today’s top betting picks and predictions from Bundesliga 2, let’s shift our focus to away team. VfL Osnabrück was founded in 1899, making it one of the oldest football clubs in Germany. The club has a long history of competing in various German football divisions, experiencing both highs and lows over the years.
Back in Bundesliga II for the first time since 2021, Osnabruck scored 23 goals in their last 24 away games. This leads us to believe that they will manage to break Paderbon’s not so sturdy defense tonight.
