Hertha Berlin vs Leipzig: Visitors vulnerable on recent form

Kick Off: 1730, 06/05/2017

Stadium: Olympiastadion

TV: BT Sport ESPN

Hertha Berlin will continue their quest to secure a spot in Europe next season by trying to upset second-placed Leipzig in Saturday’s Bundesliga clash.

The hosts have won 12 of their 15 home games this term as well as drawing with Bayern Munich here, with just nine goals conceded in those fixtures.

The visitors haven’t been too convincing of late, so 5/2 for a home win stands out as a value bet from the Hertha Berlin vs Leipzig odds.

A Look At Hertha Berlin’s Betting Odds

Hertha Berlin have really suffered from travel sickness this season and tasted defeat for the ninth straight Bundesliga road trip when going down 2-0 at Werder Bremen last week.

However, it has been a totally different story at the Olympiastadion, with four of the last five home games ending in victory, including three clean sheets and a 2-1 triumph over Borussia Dortmund.

Bosnia-Herzegovina striker Vedad Ibisevic has bagged eight of his last nine club goals at this venue and is 40/1 to score first in a 2-1 home victory for the next of our Hertha Berlin vs Leipzig betting tips.

A Look At RB Leipzig’s Betting Odds

Leipzig’s meteoric rise up the German football ranks has been a great story and they have enjoyed a sensational first campaign in the top flight, trailing only Bayern Munich in the table and being five points clear of third-placed Hoffenheim.

The visitors are unbeaten in six matches but have shown signs of running out of steam in back-to-back draws against Schalke away and second-from-bottom Ingolstadt on home turf.

That latest goalless stalemate was also marred by an ankle injury to leading scorer Timo Werner, who had to be helped off the field after 67 minutes.

On the road, Leipzig have prevailed in only two of their last eight fixtures, with four defeats suffered in the same period, so we’re taking 4/1 for Hertha to shade this by a one-goal margin.
