Hertha Berlin vs RB Leipzig Prediction & Match Preview

Hertha Berlin vs RB Leipzig
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 21 February 2021
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Olympiastadion.

The Red Bulls are the best team in Germany at the moment after the Bavarians. They are expectedly placed second in the table, and have a lead of five points as well over the third-placed Frankfurt.

Going on, they also have conceded the least number of goals so far in the contest till now.

In addition, there’s a huge opportunity coming up for the team to improve their position in the table, as the third-placed Frankfurt are pitted against toppers Bayern Munich this weekend.

One of the two will drop points at the least, and should Julian Nagelsmann’s men secure a win this Sunday, they surely would have strengthened their hold on the podium.

Meanwhile, Die Alte Dame are one of the worst teams in the German top flight, and are hanging by a thread over the relegation cut-off.

They are on a long winless run, and have conceded goals in plenty all through this campaign. And most importantly, they have a worrying h2h record against this opponent over the years.

Likely, expect Leipzig to emerge victorious this Sunday, and that too in style.
