Ralf Rangnick will be disappointed with his team still winless at home in 2019. The last three home league matches for RB Leipzig have been draws. Meanwhile, the team has picked up five successive victories on the road. The same cannot be said about Hertha Berlin’s away form, which includes only four victories in 13 away matches this season. Even though Hertha Berlin picked up a victory in the recent game at the Red Bull Arena, the hosts will be determined to end this long wait for a home win – especially since they are involved in the battle for the top three places. Our preview would go with a RB Leipzig win.

Correct Score odds
RB Leipzig have been scoring a decent return of goals but the highlight for the team has been at the back, where they have conceded only twice in the last six games. Hertha Berlin have been in among the goals of late. Most of the head-to-head meetings between these two clubs have been very entertaining and our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 home victory.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The last meeting between Berlin and RB Leipzig to produce less than 2.5 goals was in 2016. Such is the defensive nature of this game that goals are expected at both ends – especially with Hertha Berlin struggling for defensive form after conceding eight goals in the last six games. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Timo Werner has been able to move level with Yussuf Poulsen after grabbing his 12th goal of the campaign in the victory over Schalke. Even though the German international has not experienced great form after only two goals in his last nine matches for club and country, he has been a specialist when it comes to scoring at the Red Bull Arena. Werner is searching for his first home goal in 2019 and our first goalscorer prediction would back Timo Werner.
