With the Bundesliga fixtures really starting to pile up following Germany’s return to action, RB Leipzig will welcome a resurgent Hertha Berlin to an empty Red Bull Stadium on Wednesday evening.
Making a return to winning ways with a thumping 5-0 romp away at Mainz over the weekend, the Whites managed to keep alive their outside title chances after bringing an end to a run of three consecutive draws.
On the flip side, while Hertha might find themselves almost stuck in Bundesliga limbo, the Berlin outfit have really caught the eye following their return from the enforced break.
Securing back-to-back victories, including a 4-0 win against bitter rivals Union on Friday night, the midweek guests are enjoying a four-match Bundesliga unbeaten run, their best patch since opening 2020.
However, picking up a 4-2 win when the two sides faced off earlier in the season, you might be interested to know that another Leipzig win can be found at 4/11 with Paddy Power.
Werner ends his drought
Although RB Leipzig may have been lucky to have marked their return to action with a controversial 1-1 draw at home against Freiburg, Julian Nagelsmann’s men made an empathic return to form over the weekend.
Putting in what was a rampant display and putting five past Mainz on the road, the Champions League dark horses have a growing reputation as one of the most exciting young squads across Europe.
Still dreaming of mounting what would be a shock title charge, there is no doubt that Nagelsmann will be glad to see attacking talisman and leading marksman Timo Werner make a return to scoring ways last time out.
Ending what was a mini drought after bagging just a single Bundesliga goal in his last nine attempts, the Liverpool target bagged a hat-trick against Mainz last weekend and should be boosted by his most recent meeting against Wednesday’s guests.
Bagging a brace when he made the trip to Berlin earlier in the season, Werner can be found priced at 1/2 with William Hill to extend on his tally at the Red Bull Stadium in midweek.
Who can stop Cunha?
Although an inconsistent start to 2020 may have started to worry some in Hertha’s camp, the Old Lady have really made an eye-catching statement since making their return from the enforced break.
Putting in arguably the performance of the weekend and picking up what was a stunning 4-0 romp against bitter rivals Union Berlin on Friday night, Bruno Labbadia’s men also marked their return with a 3-0 win away against Hoffenheim.
Simply with their sight set on securing a route into the top half, there is no doubt that Labbadia will be hugely excited by the red-hot, Matheus Cunha.
Continuing to shine following his £15million move from Leipzig, the Brazilian youth star has now found the net in his last four Bundesliga matches on the bounce and is enjoying quite the purple patch.
Quickly becoming a fan favourite at the Olympiastadion, the 20-year-old has found the net in nine of his last 12 matches for club and country and can be found at 13/5 with Ladbrokes to bag a goal against his former employers.
