RB Leipzig vs Hertha Berlin Match Preview
RB Leipzig have struggled for consistency and failed to connect any two same results since wins over Fortuna Dusseldorf (0-4) in late January as well as Hannover (0-3) and Wolfsburg (1-0) in early February. They now host Hertha looking to keep hold of their top 4 spot with chasers piling up and we do expect them in a good mood.
Die Bullen have snatched a narrow 0-1 win at Schalke last time out with a single goal from Timo Werner but the struggles at Red Bull Arena will be more worrying, as Ralf Rangnick’s men search for their first win since beating Die Wolfe – with three draws and a loss in last four outings here.
Hertha Berlin have seen even more woes lately and used the break to no good cause as they suffered a 1-3 loss to Holstein Kiel, which was the third consecutive after seeing Freiburg (2-1) and Borussia Dortmund (2-3) snatch the Bundesliga points in two exciting games beforehand.
Die Alte Dame will now be without Vedad Ibisevic and Jordan Torunarigha who both got sent off ahead of the break, which could make even more troubles for Pal Dardai. They have beaten Leipzig just once in last five head-to-head clashes and building on the tally should prove a very tough task once again.
We will thus back RB Leipzig to secure the points and finally end the unwanted streak at home ground in a narrow contest, as we go for a Home win to Nil at 7/5 with bet365. We have seen them base their success on tough defensive displays before anything else and now hope for more of the same.
However, this promises few goals and with that in mind – we’re now also backing Under 2.5 Goals FT at 11/10 with Paddy Power. We have seen two or fewer goals in all of Die Bullen’s last four league outings and this does feel like further evidence for such a bet.
