RB Leipzig vs Hertha Berlin Prediction
The Red Bulls recorded a massive 0-5 win on the road the last match-day, against Mainz. Timo Werner was absolutely the star of the show with an incredible hat-trick, and he has seriously raised speculation of some major PL clubs coming after him at the end of the season. At no point in the game did the hosts have any sort of control on the proceedings.
Meanwhile, the Old Lady registered a 4-0 win at home the prior game week against Union Berlin. Curiously, the first half had ended without goals, whereas the home team slotted in all four of their goals after the break. Thus, the team has made their return to mainstream football a memorable one (their first match-up had ended in a 3-0 win for them).
However, the Red Bulls are just on an other level compared to them. Not only do they have a four-match winning run against the Old Lady, but they scored an incredible 18 goals from these four fixtures as well. On top of that, they are in run for a CL spot, and with just seven match-days remaining in the campaign, the Bulls would give all they have on the pitch for the three points.
Also note that the Bulls have scored two or more goals in all h2h clashes so far, and that they have lost just one such game so far. Moreover, they won the latest such encounter at this venue with a 5-0 scoreline, and only once have they failed to keep a clean sheet at this stadium against this foe.
Considering these observations, it’s adjudged that Leipzig are on course to record a convincing win this Wednesday.
