From the perspective of neutral fans, it is always best when the race for a title goes all the way down to the final weekend of the season. In the major European soccer leagues, we don’t always see that, simply because it always seems as though one team is just that much more dominant than the rest. Tuesday might well prove to be the day we find out whether the Bundesliga will go all the way to the final week or whether it will be all but over early on. Let’s get right into one of this week matchup and their Bundesliga odds.
RB Leipzig Vs Hertha BSC Game Info
Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, the top two teams in the league, will square off on Tuesday afternoon. Bayern have a 4-point lead and would go 7 clear with the win. With just 6 games remaining after that one, the chances of them being caught would be rather slim. It is a busy couple of days in the Bundesliga, with a full slate of games set to be played on Tuesday and Wednesday. We are going to jump ahead to one of the Wednesday games, with RB Leipzig at home against Hertha, as the home team look to hold on to a Champions League spot. Leipzig are favored by 1 ½, with the goal total set at 3 ¼.
Why bet on Red Bull Leipzig
We mentioned that RB Leipzig are looking to hold on to one of the 4 Champions League spots available in the Bundesliga, but things could get very interesting if Dortmund beat Bayern Munich on Tuesday. As it stands now, Leipzig are 7 points behind the leaders and 3 points back of Dortmund. If Bayern Munich lose on Tuesday, we have a rather spectacular title race on our hands. Still, regardless of that result, Leipzig need to take care of their own business at home. RB Leipzig are coming in off a 5-0 thumping of Mainz 05 on the road over the weekend, so confidence is sure to be high. At home this season, Leipzig are 7-5-1, scoring 33 goals and surrendering just 14, so the certainly look like a good bet here.
Why bet on Hertha BSC
Unless they have some sort of spectacular finish to the season, Hertha are more than likely going to end up in the middle of the pack in the Bundesliga. Overall, they are 9-7-11, which is good enough for 34 points on the season. That leaves them 5 points out of the Europa League qualifying spot that comes with finishing 6th , whilst also putting them 10 points clear of the drop zone. They are coming off a very nice 4-0 win against Union Berlin over the weekend, so we should perhaps not rule them out totally. That said, they dis lose 4-2 at home to Leipzig in the earlier meeting this season. On the road, they are 5-4-4, scoring 21 goals and surrendering 20.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
One thing that we always seem to get when these two teams go head to head is lots of goals. Over the last 5 meetings, they have combined for 27 goals, so it is more than fair to suggest that the OVER might well be the way to go here.
