RB Leipzig vs Hertha Berlin

Leipzig got back to ruthless ways in their last outing against Mainz. They put another five past them but it could have easily of been eight again just like the reverse fixture. The young, pressing outfit will hope to jump into second position with a win over an in-form Hertha side. BSC have a perfect record with two wins from two on the Bundesliga return and have kept cleans sheets in both of their matches. This could be a tricky fixture for the hosts, who are favourites. If they perform similarly to last matchweek, there can only be one inevitable winner in this one.”

Another Leipzig steamroll performance?

We witnessed Leipzig doing what they do when they are playing at their best last time out. A 5-0 crushing saw Mainz unable to compete with East Germans for a second time this season. With just one home defeat in the Bundesliga this season, Leipzig will be confident to not drop any more points. They can capitalise on Dortmund losing to Bayern last night.

The stats look interesting for the hosts heading into this one. They have scored 10 second half goals compared to three first half goals in their last six home matches. RB are just as good at home as they are away from home, with an exact 2.00 PPG ratio. Despite only losing once at home this season, the hosts only have two home clean sheets.

Hertha to make it three wins from three?

One of the biggest benefiters to the enforced break and a change in management so far are Hertha Berlin. Under Bruno Labbadia, former Wolfsburg boss, they have won both of their first games back in action. Hertha followed a 3-0 away win against Hoffenheim with a 4-0 crushing of rivals Union Berlin on Friday. BSC are just four points away from 7th place Freiburg.

Plenty of goals and two clean sheets is a very promising start for Labbadia’s side. Hertha have the second best away form with 2.23 PPG from their last six away games. Unbeaten in their last six away Bundesliga games, Hertha have scored in all six between the 61-75th minute. They will need to rely on a strong defence to get anything out of this match.
