Round number 23 of the Bundesliga is opened by the reigning champions, Bayern, who receives the visit of Paderborn at Allianz Arena, Friday, February 21st, at 8:30 pm local time.
It is a match that faces the occupants of first and last of the leaderboard, a newly promoted who tries to keep their place on the first stage next year.
Bayern has recently become a leader again and will certainly strive to stay there until the end. A very accessible match is announced but let's not forget that the German panzer is preparing for an extremely difficult trip to Stamford Bridge, where they will meet Chelsea in the Champions League in 5 days.
Paderborn never even took a point in front of Bayern, receiving at least 3 goals each time. On the move they did well given the situation in the league but the chances of setting up a surprise are very low in Friday's game.
