Hertha Berlin vs RB Leipzig – Bundesliga Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

This Wednesday, Bundesliga action will continue as Match Day 28 gets underway with five games lined up for the day.

Hertha Berlin secured an impressive 4-0 victory against Union Berlin last Friday to pick up back-to-back victories in their last six Bundesliga matches, WLDDWW. They moved a spot from 11th to 10th place on the table and now have 9W, 7D and 11L so far this season. Hertha Berlin has 34 points from 27 league appearances and have scored 39 goals so far this season. Bruno Labbadia, head coach of Hertha Berlin will likely use a 4-2-3-1 formation against Leipzig on Wednesday. Dodi Lukébakio will be playing from the right side of attack once more. Dodi has 6 goals and 5 assists for Hertha Berlin this season. Meanwhile, Vedad Ibisevic who came in as a sub against Union Berlin will be leading the attack.

On the other hand, RB Leipzig were able to get an emphatic 5–0 victory against Mainz 05 last Sunday. Leipzig has not lost any game in their last six Bundesliga matches; WWDDDW. They are 3rd on the Bundesliga table and have 15W, 9D and 3L. With an average of 1.3 goals per game, Leipzig has scored 68 goals and have 54 points from 27 Bundesliga games. We can expect a 3-4-2-1 formation against Hertha Berlin – the same formation which earned Julian Nagelsmann all three points last weekend. Timo Wener returned with a hattrick over the weekend and now has 24 goals in total.

The first leg in November, 2019 ended 2-4 in favor of RB Leipzig. Before then, they met in May 2019 and it ended 5-0 — once more in RB Leipzig’s favor. The meeting before then ended 3-0 in favor of RB Leipzig again. In their last eight meetings, RB Leipzig has won six times while Hertha Berlin has two victories.

Taking into account the results of their last four meetings, Hertha Berlin has not been able to defeat Leipzig. It appears Leipzig will come out victorious when they meet again on Wednesday.

A 4-0 victory for RB Leipzig is predicted at full time.
