Soccer News – Leipzig-Hertha
RB Leipzig hosts Hertha BSC in a match from the 17th round of the German Bundesliga.
After qualifying for the Champions League last season, RB Leipzig continue to perform in a brilliant way this season as well. They are currently 3rd in the Bundesliga with 28 points won, proving that the last season was not a fluke for them. And they are a very good and competitive team, who’s turning into a huge factor in the German league.
RB Leipzig’s record so far is 8 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses. But they are not in a good form lately, being in a run of three consecutive games without a win. For the last time they have won against Werder Bremen (2-0), which is their only win in the last five matches. They really need to improve their form as soon as possible, because other teams are also aiming for a Top 4 finish this season. It’s not going to be an easy ride until the end of the campaign.
Hertha BSC are 11th in the Bundesliga with 21 points won so far. The Old Lady have a record of 5 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses so far. Last season Hertha performed well and qualified for Europa League, but they need to improve their current performances if they want to repeat this success.
