RB Leipzig vs Hertha Berlin
Date: Saturday, 30 March 2019
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena.
RB Leipzig are not contesting the title this year, but they have been consistent when it comes to matches played at home.
This weekend the Bulls host Hertha Berlin and anything but winning three points would be marked as a failure.
It is an important match as well – Champions League contenders are very close and the remaining eight rounds will be super exciting.
As expected, bookies have made hosts big favorites for the win at 1.44 odds, despite the fact Hertha caused a lot of issues to league’s top guns this season.
Many will agree that RB Leipzig misses Emil Forsberg’s goals to compete for the top. Swede midfielder was a true menace for all Bundesliga teams two years ago, but so far he bagged only one goal this season.
Overall his presence is no longer that notable. RB Leipzig have the lowest win rate at home if we take top 6 teams into consideration, managing to close only 7 out of 13 games. The current form is very good though (undefeated in 8 games).
That can’t be said for Hertha Berlin. The team had a very rough schedule, losing 3 out of the last 4 outings.
The last one against Dortmund had a lot of drama involved. Team from the capital had the lead all until the last 10 minutes when they conceded twice.
RB Leipzig vs Hertha: Head-to-head
It is interesting to add that the last four head to head encounters between RB Leipzig and Hertha were always won by the visitors.
RBL celebrated a convincing 3-0 victory in the November duel in Berlin.
The average number of goals seen in 6 meetings so far is insanely high – 4.00 per duel.
We are not convinced that trend is going to continue on Saturday.
RB Leipzig vs Hertha: Prediction
Hosts have improved in the back over the course of last two months. RB Leipzig conceded only two goals in the last eight Bundesliga appearances, having the best defense in 2019. Hertha have been consistent when it comes to scoring on the road though, bagging at least a goal in 5 out of last 6 games.
We are going to back home victory and both teams to score as the value is good. For the secondary bet, we recommend Werner to score a goal anytime.
