THE TEAM NEWS

RB LEIPZIG

  • RB Leipzig responded in the best way possible after the disappointment of dropping points at home to Freiburg in their previous game as they produced a stunning display which saw them put five goals past Mainz.
  • Timo Werner has received a lot of media attention of late as he continues to be linked with a move to the English Premier League and he stole the headlines once again with a hat-trick with Yussuf Poulsen and Marcel Sabitzer also finding the back of the net.
  • Despite the impressive win, it was not all good news for Leipzig as they picked up a couple of injuries in the form of Poulsen and Konrad Laimer with the former ruled out for the foreseeable future.

HERTHA

  • Bruno Labbadia made it two wins from two in charge of Hertha and his new side have now scored seven goals without conceding after they claimed a 4-0 success in the Berlin derby on Friday night.
  • It had been a frustrating first half for Hertha as they failed to find the back of the net despite dominating for large spells but two goals in as many minutes from Vedad Ibisevic and Dodi Lukebakio set the hosts on their way before Matheus Cunha and Dedryck Boyata added further goals.
  • Hertha still have a handful of players unavailable through injury with Niklas Stark, Karim Rekik, Marius Wolf and Santiago Ascacibar all unlikely to play while Thomas Kraft is also doubtful.

THE PREDICTION

Hertha have made a brilliant start to life under Bruno Labbadia but they now face an almighty test as they head to RB Leipzig. The hosts notched five goals in a dominant display over Mainz at the weekend and despite Hertha bagging four against local rivals Union Berlin, this is a very different proposition. Leipzig have lost just one of their home matches in this season’s Bundesliga and they should be able to claim a comfortable victory in this one, especially if they get off to a quick start.
