Hertha Berlin vs RB Leipzig Prediction

Hertha had a heartbreak the prior game week, as they were defeated in the Berlin Derby, on the road, by the narrowest of margins. Scores were level at 0-0 till the 90th minute, but right at the end of regular time, the home team chipped in with the lone goal and winner of the match. Keep note that the victor, Union Berlin, is a new addition to the top division.

Meanwhile, Leipzig had the time of their lives in decimating Mainz, the last match-day. One after another, eight goals were put into the nets of the guest, that too without conceding a single one in return. Timo Werner was obviously the star performer, with the rare feat of a hattrick of goals and assists in the same game.

Leipzig has built some momentum after they fell off the wagon a bit, and this has obviously resulted in them playing extra furious for results. As of now, they are on a three-game winning run in overall matches and were unbeaten in 18 of their last 20 on the road. Importantly, of these 20, 16 were wins.

On the other hand, their opposite number is winless in their preceding four match-ups and was winless in 14 of their last 20 appearances in front of the home crowd.

Finally, Leipzig has been severely dominant in h2h clashes, and have scored in plenty against this opponent. In fact, they have netted 13 from their past three visits to this venue, and 20 from the last five overall encounters.

As such, expect Leipzig to have a cracker of a game, and emerge victorious in style this Saturday.
