Tip Leipzig - Hertha Berlin

Leipzig Hertha Berlin Prediction published on May 25, 2020 at 5:07 AM - modifiedat May 25, 2020 at 6:14 AM

RB Leipzig will host Hertha Berlin in the 28th round of matches in the German Bundesliga this Wednesday. Ahead of the game, 20 points separate the two sides – third placed Leipzig on 54 and 11th placed Hertha having managed 34 points. Both teams go to this game after fine outings in the 27th round. Leipzig collected three points from a 5-0 win over Mainz as Hertha Berlin beat Union Berlin 4-0. For Leipzig, the Sunday win meant they have now gone unbeaten in nine matches and have just two losses in the last 15 matches. The win also marked a recovery from a stuttering restart as Leipzig drew 1-1 with Freiburg but it was the first win in four league matches. Leipzig had drawn the earlier three. The hosts head to this game carrying the best defensive record in the league, having conceded 27 goals and playing at home, they will hope to make it count. Leipzig have not lost at home in their last 10 matches in the league; they have six wins in the process. They have also scored in each of their 13 league matches at home this season but have just two clean sheets in those.

Hertha Berlin on the other hand, have enjoyed fine form after the restart, just bettering on their run before the forced break. They are unbeaten in their last four matches and have scored at least two goals in each of the four. After the restart, they have scored seven goals in the two matches and kept clean sheets in both. This will however be a different kind of challenge and having fallen to Leipzig in each of their last four meetings, they will hope to turn tables this time. In their last eight matches across all competitions, Hertha have failed to score in just one. They have a fairly good away run, with three wins in their last five away matches and scored in each of the five. Their only loss in the last five away matches came in extra time, against Schalke 04. In each of the last six meetings between these two sides, over 2.5 goals have been scored with Leipzig keeping two clean sheets.
