Soccer News – Hertha-Leipzig
Hertha are doing pretty good since the start of the season. The Old Lady is 6th in the league standings with 16 points won. So far the team have won 4 of its matches, made 4 draws and suffered just one defeat – against Werder in Bremen.
In their last three matches Hertha made three draws – against Mainz 05, Freiburg and Borussia Dortmund.
The Old Lady visited the leader Borussia Dortmund in the previous round and won a point with a 2-2 draw at the Signal Iduna Park. Jadon Sancho scored a brace for Dortmund, but Hertha won a point with two goals from the veteran Salomon Kalou. To leave Signal Iduna Park unbeaten was a pretty good achievement for Pal Dardai’s team.
RB Leipzig have the same amount of points as Hertha, but they are 5th in the standings because of a better goal difference. The club from Leipzig have the same record as well – 4 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss.
RB Leipzig are unbeaten in their last five fixtures in the league, doing two consecutive draws in the last two games. In their last match Leipzig made a 0-0 draw at home against Schalke 04, which was dissapointing for the club’s fans, given the fact that Schalke are not doing very well since the start of the campaign.
Hertha could be without Julius Kade, Peter Pekarik and Marius Gersbeck, who still have some problems. The good news are that Per Ciljan Skjelbred and Jordan Torunarigha are ready to play.
RB Leipzig could be without Emil Forsberg, Atinc Nukan, Jean Kevin Augustin and Diego Demme, who are recovering.
That’s what we had to say about the Bundesliga clash between Hertha BSC and RB Leipzig in Berlin. Good luck!
