LEP Vs HER Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Back on their feet after last week’s 5-0 win, RB Leipzig strive to embark on a winning spree
Teetering and regressing in form with three draws on the spin, for RB Leipzig, the 5-0 trouncing of Mainz at the weekend was a much needed result. The showing not only saw them wrench out of their impasse and climb as high as third place but also instilled much needed confidence into the ranks.
The result was vindictive of the side’s pulsating form this season, a performance which alluded towards their title challenge this season. While they still have quite a distance to cover after their dreary draws, RB Leipzig have once again managed to revive a stuttering sortie and show that they still hold relevance in the title battle.
And with either one of Borussia Dortmund or Bayern Munich likely to slip up points on Tuesday in the Klassiker, a win today for RB Leipzig would see them jump right back in the reckoning for the prestigious title. Also with Hertha Berlin hardly making for a daunting opposition today, RB Leipzig should manage to maraud their way to their second win on the bounce.
Not many will give Hertha Berlin a chance on the day but the side are far from mere pushovers. They scripted a stunning 4-0 win over Union Berlin at the weekend, a dreary trouncing which now sees the 11th placed side uneaten in its last four encounters.
This new found form and revitalisation will serve the visitors well today but will still fall well short of challenging RB Leipzig. The home side is an exquisite attacking unit, a side which will end up pummelling Hertha Berlin to consolidate its spot in the top 4.
Probable Playing 11
- Konate continues to nurse his injury today as well.

LEP Vs HER Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Playing a major role in his side’s recent rejuvenation in the league, Rune Jarstein has taken all the defensive onus upon himself. He’s now kept two straight cleansheets for the side, ones which have been born out of his fortitude and vigour.
LEP Vs HER Dream11 Defenders
The league’s most pristine defence with a mere 27 goals allowed past them this season, RB Leipzig’s backline has made for resplendent viewing. The team has clamped down on oppositions with its defenders offering unstinted support to safeguard the team’s goal.
Also, the 3-5-2 formation deployed by the side has allowed them to flourish as an attacking continent as well with the wingback pairing of Nordi Mukiele and Angelino merging as a staunch and versatile partnership. Both will be partnered by CBs Marcel Halstenberg and Dayot Upamecano to see us opt for the four defenders from the home side.
LEP Vs HER Dream11 Midfielders
He failed to score the last time around but with four goals and 12 assists this season, RB Leipzig’s Christopher Nkunku is going nowhere for us. We have Marcel Sabitzer come in as well after he accrued his 9th goal of the seaon in the side’s 5-0 win the last time around.
On the other hand, with his three assists, Hertha Berlin’s Vladimir Darida has shown that he’s more than adept at breaching even the sternest of defences to make him the first pick from the side with Marko Grujic partnering him up.
LEP Vs HER Dream11 Strikers
Timo Werner’s hattrick the last time around showed why Liverpool are pursuing him so hotly. The striker now has 27 goals and 3 assists this season, emerging as one of the most pristine strikers in Europe to make him a must have commodity for this match.
Elsewhere, Hertha Berlin’s leading scorer with the 6 goals and 5 assists, Dodi Lukebakio will be representing our Dream 11 team from the visiting setup.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His three goals against Mainz see us make Werner our captain while Sabitzer is the vice-captain.
