Bayer Leverkusen vs Paderborn match tip
It could be hard to predict Bayer Leverkusen’s exact XI given this is a cup tie against a team in the second tier, but you’d expect them to go strong to keep their cup run going. Victor Boniface may be among those pushing to start to continue his good run of form this season. Netting 13 goals across all competitions, Boniface has also scored twice in a game on three different occasions.

His goals have helped Leverkusen win 12 games by a margin of two goals or more across all competitions this season. At the other end of the pitch, Bayer Leverkusen may have conceded to Borussia Dortmund at the weekend, but it was a mere blip on their recent run.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Paderborn odds
*Odds correct as of 15:30 on December 4
We’re into the last 16 of the 2023/24 DFB-Pokal and it feels as though the race is wide open. Defending champions RB Leipzig have been knocked out, as have Bayern Munich, and Bayer Leverkusen will surely have their eyes on a first trophy since 2010/11. That was the Bundesliga title, and Leverkusen have only won the DFB-Pokal once before, beating Hertha Berlin II in the final in 1992/93.
Since that win, Leverkusen have lost the DFB-Pokal final three times, including in 2001/02 when they famously also finished as runners-up in the Champions League and Bundesliga. The form team in the Bundesliga this season, Bayer Leverkusen have also been ruthless in the cup. In the first round they hammered Teutonia Ottensen 8-0, before beating SV Sandhausen 5-2 last time out.
It’s another team outside the Bundesliga for Leverkusen in this round, with Paderborn having been out of the top flight since 2019/20. Paderborn have only made it to this stage of the DFB-Pokal on five occasions, most recently last season when they were beaten 2-1 by Stuttgart. Two seasons before that there was another exit to a Bundesliga club, beaten by Borussia Dortmund.
Paderborn have tasted the quarter-finals twice before, in consecutive seasons in 2017/18 and 2018/19, losing to Bayern Munich and Hamburg respectively. So far this season in the 2. Bundesliga, Paderborn have been underwhelming, sitting 10th, just five points clear of Schalke in the relegation play-off spot. But they have had fun in the cup, beating Energie Cottbus 7-0 in the first round before knocking out Bundesliga side Freiburg in the second round.
