Leaders Bayern overwhelming favourites for Paderborn clash

Paderborn - Struggling SC Paderborn 07 face the unenviable task of welcoming runaway league leaders FC Bayern München to the Benteler-Arena on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 15:30 CET / 14:30 GMT).

The Bavarians maintained their eight-point lead over second-place VfL Wolfsburg with a resounding 8-0 victory over Hamburger SV last time out, but Andre Breitenreiter’s side will be buoyed by Sunday’s come-from-behind win at Hannover 96, which lifted the hosts up to twelfth place ahead of the meeting with Pep Guardiola’s troops.
