SC Paderborn 07 is currently engaged in the 2nd Bundesliga (group stage - 33rd matchday) on the second place with 16 decided of not less than 30 games. On the other hand, the team was eliminated in the quarter finals against Hamburger SV of the DFB Cup. All in all, 47 goals were conceded, 16 of 33 games were won and 47 goals were scored this season. The German team is currently being trained by the German Steffen Baumgart. The Benteler Arena in Paderborn, the team's home venue, was built to accommodate more than 15,000 spectators. The 6 to 2 victory in the 18th group phase game of the 2nd Bundesliga against SV Darmstadt 1898 was decided prematurely after SC Paderborn 07 reached their biggest lead of the first half of the current season of four points.
The last triumph of the team against MSV Duisburg was on August 5, 2013. Since then both teams met 18 more times. The most recent game took place on 3 November 2018. In the 54 matches of the last 14 years the team could book a point difference of -28 against MSV Duisburg. In away games, the team likes to play FC St. Pauli, because this is where the most successes have happened. In their latest game of the 2nd Bundesliga against Hamburger SV SC Paderborn 07 wanted to take a risk with the 4-2-3-1 arrangement (W/D/L: 1/0/0). Finally SC Paderborn 07 won with 4 to 1. The most frequent substitutes are goalkeeper Michael Ratajczak, defender Lukas Boeder plus midfielders Ben Zolinski, Klaus Gjasula and Marlon Ritter.
With a record of 15 successes, nine remises and 30 losses to MSV Duisburg in SCP's own arena, this group is the most problematic rival there. Robin Krausse and Sven Michel (midfielder), Phillip Tietz and Mohamed Drager (striker), Leopold Zingerle (goalkeeper), Tobias Schwede (right-back) and Sebastian Schonlau (centre-back) were in the starting line-up this season with 14 other players. Left-footed German Philipp Klement scored SCP's latest goal of this season in the 95th minute against SV Sandhausen. The goalkeepers of SC Paderborn 07 have made a satisfactory effort as far as the hold of opposing goal shots is concerned. It took 5 minutes for the football team to concede the fastest opposing goal of the current season. This was shot by Kingsley Schindler (Holstein Kiel) in the 13th group phase match of the 2nd Bundesliga.
In the quarter-finals of the DFB Cup against Hamburger SV on 2 April 2019, the club conceded the maximum deficit of this season of two goals. In SC Paderborn 07 22% prefer to shoot with their right foot. In the first half, the team tends to take the lead more often. Although Oliver Schindler and Philippos Selkos are only 19 years old, the football team has an average age of 25. Despite lagging in the first half, they managed to win such a match against 1 FC Cologne in the current season. Unfortunately SC Paderborn 07 did not win the seventh group phase match of the 2nd Bundesliga against FC St. Pauli shortly before the end of the game on 26.09.2018 with a direct goal from Richard Neudecker 110 seconds before the final whistle. This happened in the current season otherwise once again against.
In the current season the team has tried six different formations: 4-2-3-1, 4-3-1-2, 4-1-3-2, 4-2-2-2, 4-4-2 and 4-1-2-3. The widest goal of the current season was scored by the 75kg heavy jersey number 11 Sven Michel on December 23, 2018 in the 18th group phase match of the 2nd Bundesliga against SV Darmstadt 1898 from 28m distance in the 77th minute. In total, SC Paderborn 07 weighs as much as an ordinary car, but on average even 6.9 kg less than an average European. At 69 kg, Ghanaian striker Bernard Tekpetey is the strongest to exceed this figure. Not against every competitor was it as successful as against FC Ingolstadt (13/4/4). The statistically strongest rival is 1 FC Magdeburg with no success, nine draws and four failures on the part of SC Paderborn 07.
The selection has the best output (8/2/1) with the 4-2-2-2 arrangement. The difference between SC Paderborn 07's smallest (Marlon Ritter) and largest (Klaus Gjasula, Leon Fesser, Leon Bruggemeier, Babacar Gueye and Christian Strohdiek) footballers is an incredible 22 centimetres, while the mass is 183 cm. Of the average of 16 shots per game on the square, only 41% actually hit it, while the rest failed (40%) or were paralysed by the opponent (19%). The team managed to get two triumphs just before the end of the game. Quite unexpected was the 22nd group phase game of the 2nd Bundesliga against 1 FC Cologne on 15 February 2019, in which it stood 0 to 2 until Bernard Tekpetey, Kai Proger and Marlon Ritter scored three goals in the minutes 90, 80 and 86.
