After last season having caused a huge sensation in the German championship, Leipzig continues to surprise the competition, however, it has left to wish in the last days. The presence in the European competitions, more properly in the Champions League, may have complicated the life of the Red Bull team, which made evident the lack of players that could be an alternative to the holders.

The moment of form of the Leipzig in the championship is not very good and in the last day it aggravated the series of parties without winning for three consecutive days, when tying in the terrain of the Wolfsburg, by 1-1. In that same game the team managed to create innumerable goal opportunities, but it was not very effective in the finalization. However, it must be emphasized that Leipzig remains unbeaten in its stadium.

For this meeting the coach Ralph Hasenhüttl has to put hands to work and make an alteration in the defensive axis, since Upamecano was ejected in the last game. In addition to this player, Sabitzer is absent due to injury. In the front will be the German Werner, best scorers of Leipzig, with 8 goals, but it has revealed enormous difficulties to introduce the ball into the back of the net of the opponent’s goal.

Hertha BSC:

After 5 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses, the away team is currently in the 11 th position of the league, with 21 points won.

In their home matches there are a few frequent results: at half-time 0-0 (3 out of 7 matches) and at the end of the match 1-1 (3 out of 7 matches). They have not been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since in 19 of the last 29 matches they have less than 3 goals.

There is 1 period that stands out in the last 12 away matches for all competitions: they have scored 5 of their 13 goals between minutes (76′-90 ‘).

Despite being at the bottom of the qualifying table, the Hertha is a team that has a good organization, both in the direction of the club and in the template. However, we can affirm that this formation suffered from the same problem of the rival of this day, since it had to mark presence in the Europa League this season.

The Hertha comes to this day of the German championship with a moralizing victory over Hannover 96, in a game in which dominated from start to finish. Thus, the visiting team managed to put a final point to the two games in a row without winning the competition, however, the conquest of a draw in this game against Leipzig would be considered a good result.

The headache of coach Pál Dárdai on this day is the Weiser end, one of the most important players in the offensive process, however, has the presence of Kalou, the best marker, on the attack front. In addition to this player, Darida, Stocker and Rekik continue to recover from physical problems.
