THREE AND EASY
All the damage was done in 26 first-half minutes for Hoffenheim. Robert Skov, Pavel Kaderabek and Jürgen Locadia got the goals to extend the Sinsheim club's winning run to four Bundesliga matches - five in all competitions. Alfred Schreuder's side climb to seventh; Paderborn stay rooted to the foot of the table on four points from a possible 30.
Abdelhamid Sabiri has a crack from range. It's an awkward one for Baumann, who takes no chances with the bouncing ball and springs to his right to push it wide.
WHAT A STOP!
Adamyan looks certain to score as he meets Ihlas Bebou's miscontrol at the far post, but Zingerle throws out a steel-like wrist to somehow keep it out! Really good save, that. Neuer-esque!
WOULD YOU ADAMYAN AND EVE IT?!
Here comes big Sargis. The Armenian scored twice on his first Bundesliga start - Hoffenheim's famous 2-1 win in Munich at the end of August. Sven Michel is on for Paderborn - the visitors' third and final change.
Zingerle reads the flight of Skov's latest free-kick. The Dane's deliveries have caused Paderborn all manner of problems today.
The Hoffenheim fans are in fine voice as their team close in on a fourth successive Bundesliga win. It all started with three points away to Bayern Munich...
HOFFENHEIM WANT MORE
Paderborn just do not know how to deal with Skov's set-piece deliveries. The Dane whips an out-swinger towards the penalty spot, where Kaderabek arrives late, towers above Collins and heads just over.
TWO PADERBORN CHANGES
Laurent Jans is on for Mo Dräger at right-back, while Streli Mamba replaces Cauly further forward for Paderborn. Dräger had a tough time of it up against Lukas Rupp in the first half, but Cauly was a decent outlet on the odd occasion when the visitors did get forward.
45' + 1'
Utterly dominant from Alfred Schreuder's men. They might have had a couple more towards the end of the first half, too, with Ihlas Bebou itching to get on the scoresheet. Do Paderborn stick to their attack-minded game plan, or will they shut up shop to prevent a mauling?

THREE FROM THREE
How about this for efficiency? Hoffenheim have had three shots on target, and scored three goals. Clinical from the hosts, but it doesn't say much about Paderborn as a defensive unit.
Oliver Baumann was not expecting that from Gerrit Holtman. The Paderborn midfielder showed Robert Skov a clean pair of heels, before arrowing a fierce strike towards goal. If it had been either side of the keeper, Baumann might have been in trouble...
BEBOU ON THE PROWL
Sebastian Rudy whips an inviting ball into the danger zone for Ihlas Bebou, but the Togolese forward can't bring it under wraps and Zingerle is off his line to gather. Paderborn need to do more to cut off Hoffenheim's supply line.
A FIRST FOR PADERBORN
Paderborn have conceded three first-half goals for the first time in 44 matches at Germany's top table. Baumgart's strugglers have now shipped 25 goals in 10 games this season...
LOCADIA ADDS A THIRD!
This could get really ugly for Paderborn. Hoffenheim shift the ball through the midfield and out wide to Kaderabek. Jürgen Locadia still has it all to do as he controls in the box, before showing his marker a cool dummy and curling confidently into the far corner. Stunning finish - that's two in two for the Hoffenheim forward.
GOAL!3 : 0
Big, big chance for Paderborn. Cauly's played in behind Kevin Vogt, but goes for power over precision, and Oliver Baumann beats it away. They won't get many like that, you feel...
KADERABEK MAKES IT TWO!
Alarm bells for Paderborn. Lukas Rupp is suddenly in for Hoffenheim down the left-hand side. He cuts the ball across the box for Grillitsch, who doesn't even think about taking the shot on. He senses the run of Pavel Kaderabek and duly lays the ball off for the Czech wing-back, who slots beyond Zingerle for 2-0. Lovely goal.
GOAL!2 : 0
Florian Grillitsch does brilliantly to skip clear of his marker and clip a pass into the box for the run of Ihlas Bebou. He only has Zingerle to beat, but the Hoffenheim No.9 drags his effort wide of the far post.
MORE ON SKOV
Breaking the Danish Superligaen record for most strikes in a single campaign - 30 goals in 34 games - Skov was a cut above for Copenhagen last season. Eight of them were direct free-kicks...
It's not all that long ago Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen said he might have to let Robert Skov take free-kicks for Denmark - and here's why. The Hoffenheim forward catches the ball really well from a good 25 yards to open his Bundesliga account in fine style. Paderborn goalkeeper Leopold Zingerle won't be happy, but that was really travelling! No wonder they call Skov 'the Danish Gareth Bale'!
GOAL!1 : 0
BIG ASK FOR PADERBORN
The odds are against Paderborn: they've never won back-to-back Bundesliga games.
TEAMS ARE OUT
Hoffenheim in all blue, Paderborn are in their change strip of fluorescent yellow.
WHO IS MAXIMILIAN BEIER?
Eagle-eyed users might have spotted a new name on the Hoffenheim bench: Maximilian Beier. The 17-year-old is included in the first-team squad for the first time, having moved to the Sinsheim club a year ago from the Energie Cottbus youths. He will become the youngest player to feature in this season's Bundesliga if he features against Paderborn, as well as the first born in 2002 and the youngest in Hoffenheim's top-flight history. Beier has scored eight goals in nine games for the Hoffenheim youth team so far this term.
PADERBORN BETTER THAN YOU MIGHT THINK
Hoffenheim coach Alfred Schreuder does not believe promoted Paderborn's position at the foot of the table is a fair reflection of their performances, tonight's visitors having taken just four points from their opening nine matches. "Paderborn have good ideas and can create a lot of chances," he said prior to the game. "They deserve to have more points."
Hoffenheim are the only team in the Bundesliga to have won their last three league games, scoring at least two goals in each of them. Only leaders Gladbach (nine) have scored more goals in that time that TSG (seven). Paderborn won for the first time this season last weekend, beating Fortuna Düsseldorf 2-0.
DFB CUP HANGOVER?
Not likely. Seven members of the Hoffenheim side that won 2-0 at Duisburg in midweek do not start. Five players who begun Paderborn's 1-0 defeat to Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday are not included in Baumgart's XI in Sinsheim.
CAULY AND HOLTMANN START
Paderborn coach Steffen Baumgart makes two changes to the side that beat Fortuna Düsseldorf 2-0 last weekend. Cauly and Gerrit Holtmann come in, with Klaus Gjsula suspended and Kai Pröger dropping to the bench.
KRAMARIC ON THE BENCH
That's the big news on the team news front in Sinsheim. The Croatian has scored two in as many games since returning from injury, but it's Ihlas Bebou who gets the nod alongside Jürgen Locadia - also on target last weekend - who gets the nod.
