Hertha Berlin vs RB Leipzig
Date: Saturday, 12 May 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Olympiastadion Berlin, Berlin.
RB Leipzig kept the Champions League dream alive by trashing Wolfsburg 4-1 at home last time out. Chances of making it count are still slim as they need a win here over Hertha as well as both Bayer Leverkusen and Hoffenheim not to win their respective outings in the final day.
Such scenario is highly improbable as even a win at Olympiastadion will be quite a significant challenge for the Bulls itself, not to mention Bayer’s home clash with Hannover on the same day. We say beating the Old Lady will be a tough task for Ralph Hasenhuttl and his men knowing that Pal Dardai’s squad only lost one of last eight home matches on the league.
The visitors could be encouraged with the fact Hertha’s defensive line looked pretty lame without a real imperative in last two ties which saw the team ship five goals to the likes of Augbsurg and Hannover 96.
Hertha Berlin vs RB Leipzig: Head-to-head
Sides have two wins apiece coming into their fifth head to head encounter.
Leipzig won each of two H2H clashes sin the previous term., but they were stunned by Hertha when the teams met in December last year at Red Bull Arena (2-3).
Five goals were seen in both of last two head to head matches.
Hertha Berlin vs RB Leipzig: Prediction
We’d not be surprised to witness the continuation of a high-scoring trend in H2H clashes between these two likes. Hertha showed a decent attacking potential lately bagging seven goals in three matches before suffering a 3-1 loss to Hannover last weekend. They revealed defensive holes in last two rounds which will be the music to the ears of Timo Werner & company. Leipzig to net two or more goals is definitely the safest of the picks and you can have it at the odds of 1.61.
Leipzig to win & BTTS is something longshot chasers will love at 3.20, while backing goals at both ends should be a banker bet at 1.53.
