Pick: RB Leipzig to WIN
Odds: 8/11

(All betting odds correct at time of writing: 18th February 2021)

Preview: For a Hertha Berlin outfit currently without a Bundesliga victory in seven attempts, the sight of a wounded RB Leipzig, licking their lips from a chastening midweek in Europe, is daunting to say the least. Particularly as the home side hasn’t won any of the four head-to-head games held inside Berlin’s Olympiastadion.

Hertha Berlin – Home form the stuff of nightmares?

Despite losing four of their final five Bundesliga matches of 2019/20, Hertha Berlin (W4 D6 L11) would ultimately end the season nestled in mid-table. What they would do for something similar when 2020/21 reaches its long-awaited conclusion in May, by which time the club hope to have their status within the country’s top-flight renewed for another term. As things stand though, this is by no means guaranteed.

The gap between a position of safety, which they presently occupy in 15th, and danger has been whittled down to mere goal difference, though, following a run of five defeats and no wins in seven league games. Meanwhile, the Old Lady’s sole victory through the previous ten rounds came when as odds-on favourites at home to rock-bottom Schalke, whose 3-0 defeat on 2 January caused little consternation at the time.

On current form therefore, taking anything positive away from Sunday’s clash with second-place RB Leipzig seems a tall order. Particularly as here at Olympiastadion the capital outfit boast the fourth-worst home record (W2 D2 L6) in the league, recently labouring to three consecutive defeats on their own patch having failed to even locate the back of their guest’s net in three of the last five such encounters.

RB Leipzig – Nagelsmann will demand defensive improvement?

The Bundesliga’s sternest rearguard was made to look foolish in Tuesday’s first-leg of their last-sixteen Champions League tie with Liverpool, the Premier League champions utilising their famous aggression and high-intensity brand of counter-pressing to force uncharacteristic mistake from RB Leipzig. A 2-0 defeat leaving head coach Julian Nagelsmann with plenty to ponder until 10 March’s second leg.

In the meantime, attentions revert to domestic commitments. Crucially, maintaining pressure on leaders Bayern, whose recent slip-up against Arminia Bielefeld offered up hope of a meaningful title race materialising yet. Die Roten Bullen (W13 D5 L3) are now within five points of the summit after registering their third straight Bundesliga win during the previous round, edging out FC Augsburg 2-1 inside Red Bull Arena.

Not since December 2019 has this team strung four consecutive league wins together, going some way to explaining the deficit to leaders Bayern. As does a mediocre away record this season, reading four wins from twelve such games (W4 D4 L2). All four away victories meanwhile came when they were successful in preventing their hosts from scoring, necessitating the need for a swift return to defensive normality.

Hertha Berlin Vs RB Leipzig Betting Advice

Fresh from a resounding defeat to last season’s English Premier League champions, RB Leipzig, who have won their last three league games, will look to deliver the perfect riposte on their return to Bundesliga action. An obliging opponent in Hertha Berlin – winless in seven having recently lost three on the spin on home soil – should help their cause, as Die Roten Bullen bid to keep pace with league leaders Bayern Munich.


Hertha Berlin Vs RB Leipzig – Key Facts:

  • Whereas Hertha Berlin are without a win in their past seven Bundesliga games (D2 L5), RB Leipzig are seeking to win a fourth consecutive league game for the first time since December 2019.
  • Half (3/6) of Hertha Berlin‘s six home league defeats this season were to nil, while all four RB Leipzig away wins were without conceding a goal.
  • Five of the past six meetings, as well as all four held in the capital, went the way of RB Leipzig, who were 2-1 victors when these sides met on Matchday 5 of the current campaign.


RB Leipzig have dominated the recent head-to-head between the sides, clinching maximum points in all-but last season’s 2-2 draw as hosts across the pair’s past six encounters. Hertha would not manage so much as a point in their four meetings here in Berlin, losing all four by a combined score of 5-17 and by at least two clear goals each time. I’m expecting an emphatic response to midweek from Nagelsmann’s side.
