Hertha BSC is hosting RB Leipzig at Olympiastadion in round 22 in the German Bundesliga.
Hertha is having an absolutely terrible time right now, and they have won only 1 of their last 11 games, and it was over a month ago. Thanks to this terrible run, Hertha is now fighting for survival in Bundesliga, and they are in low 15th place with only 18 points, which is still outside the relegation zone, but Arminia has the same number of points. Hertha’s offense has gone silent lately, and they have scored only 26 goals so far this season. in their last game against Stuttgart on the road, Hertha has had 48% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 80% of the correct passes. After conceding a goal late in the first half, Hertha was playing well in the second half, and they were able to tie the score in the 82nd minute. The final result of this match was 1-1. Cunha has scored 6 goals for Hertha so far this season, while Cordoba and Piatek added 5 goals each. Darida has 5 assists. Boyata, Dilrosun, Cordoba, Plattenhardt, and Torunarigha are all injured for Hertha at this time. Hertha started this season well, but they have a lot of work to do now, and their Bundesliga spot is at stake.
Leipzig was on a nice 4-game winning streak, and they have gotten a little bit closer to Bayern in Bundesliga, but in their Champions League game against Liverpool earlier this week, Leipzig has lost. It was a good game for Leipzig, but they made two stupid mistakes, and it cost them two goals. Leipzig has lost this match 0-2. As far as Bundesliga goes, Leipzig is in second place with 44 points, and with a win here, Leipzig will come within 2 points from Bayern because they lost their game this weekend. Leipzig has scored 37 goals so far this season, and Nkunku, Sabitzer, Forsberg, Poulsen, and Angelino have each scored 4 goals. Angelino has added 6 assists, while Olmo has 5 assists. Leipzig was playing against Augsburg in their last Bundesliga game, and they were the better team with 59% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a decent 83% of the correct passes. Leipzig has won this game 2-1 with two scored goals in the first half. There aren’t many injuries in Leipzig at this time, and the second leg of their Champions League game is in almost 3 weeks, which means Leipzig can get more consistent in that time, and possibly even take over the top of Bundesliga.
Hertha hasn’t won any of their last 7 games, and Hertha is on a 3-game losing streak. Leipzig is on a 3-game winning streak in Bundesliga. Leipzig has the opportunity to get really close to Bayern with a win, and I think they will take it. I’m taking Leipzig on the road.
