RB Leipzig is welcoming Hertha BSC to Red Bull Arena in round 6 of the German Bundesliga. Leipzig is still struggling, they can’t win a game, and I think it’s time for them to make a coaching change. Hertha is now read hot in Bundesliga, and they have won their last 2 games in a row.
Leipzig is having a terrible season so far, they have 1 win, 4 losses, and a draw in Bundesliga so far, and they have also lost in the Champions League against Manchester City. With only 4 points, 6 scored goals, and 7 conceded goals, Leipzig is now in 12th place. In their latest game in Bundesliga, Leipzig was playing against Koln on the road, and they were the better team with 53% of ball possession, 9 shots on goal, 10 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 76% of the correct passes. This was the game where we saw 5 canceled goals, and we saw 2 goals in the second half. The final score of this match was 1-1. Halstenberg and Saracchi are injured, but Leipzig is getting a few players back for this game, and that could be a good thing for them. Leipzig is also playing in the Champions League next week against Club Brugge at home, and that is a team they can beat, but considering their form, it will not be easy.
Hertha has finally snapped their losing streak from the start of the season, and they are now on a 2-game winning streak during which they scored 5 goals and conceded only 2 goals, which is a major improvement for this team. Hertha has scored 7 goals so far, and Serdar is their leading goalscorer with 2 goals. The injury list is also very long for Hertha, and this will be a tough game for them because of the reduced depth. Defensively, Hertha has been terrible, and they have conceded 12 goals so far this season. Hertha was hosting Furth in their last game, and they were the better team with 58% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 78% of the correct passes. After conceding a goal in the 57th minute, Hertha has tied the score in the 61st minute, and with another goal in the 79th minute, Hertha has won this game 2-1. Even though Hertha has sold two of their best players, they look decent so far, but it’s still early, and I think Hertha still must be concerned about dropping into the relegation zone.
I know Leipzig is playing terribly, on both ends, but Hertha has a mile-long injury list, and this is the perfect opportunity for Leipzig to get back on the winning track ahead of their Champions League game.
