RB Leipzig is hosting Hertha BSC at Red Bull Arena in round 5 in the German Bundesliga.
Leipzig is the best team overall in Bundesliga so far, and they are at the top of the standings with 10 points, 10 scored goals, and only 2 conceded goals after 4 games. Earlier this week, Leipzig was playing in the Champions League against Basaksehir at home, and they have won that game 2-0. In their last Bundesliga game against Augsburg on the road, Leipzig has had massive 68% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a solid 85% of the correct passes. With 1 scored goal in each half, Leipzig has won this match 0-2, and they have stayed undefeated in Bundesliga so far. Poulsen, Forsberg, and Angelino have each scored 2 goals for Leipzig this season, while Dani Olmo added 3 assists. Laimer is the only injured player for Leipzig at this time. Leipzig is playing fantastic soccer with great defense, and they haven’t conceded a goal in their last 3 games. Leipzig has been constantly improving over the last few seasons, and I think they finally have the quality to compete with Bayern for the Bundesliga title, as long as they can stay consistent.
Hertha has lost 7 of their last 8 games, and their defense has been terrible. Offensively, Hertha has been decent with 8 scored goals, while conceding massive 10 goals in 4 games. Hertha has won only 1 game this season, and they are in 15th place in the standings. Cordoba and Cunha have each scored 2 goals for Hertha this season, while Mittelstadt and Darida each added 2 assists. Ascacibar, Guendouzi, Klunter, and Torunarigha are all injured, and they will not be playing in this game. Hertha was playing against Stuttgart at home in their last Bundesliga game, and they have had 63% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 84% of the correct passes. Despite being the dominant team in this match, Hertha has lost 0-2. Hertha has a few good players, but they are just a terrible team, and their defense is one of the worst in the Bundesliga. Hertha has played their best game against Bayern a few weeks ago, but they still ended up losing that game. Hertha was solid last season, but it doesn’t look like they will be as good this season, at least not with the defense they are playing.
Leipzig is the better team here, in better form, and they haven’t lost any of their last 6 games while winning 3 home games in a row. Hertha has lost their last 3 games in a row. I see Leipzig continuing their winning streak here, while also scoring at least 2 or even three goals. Hertha can be dangerous in the attacking end, and for that reason, I think we could see goals here.
