RB Leipzig can jump over Borussia Dortmund with win over Hertha Berlin. Match time is 12:30pm EDT.
When RB Leipzig drew out of the break, it was a setback to its title chances, which look all but over after Tuesday’s 1-0 Bayern Munich win over Borussia Dortmund.
However, with a win Wednesday, Leipzig will leapfrog Dortmund into second place. With the top four race as tight as it is, every match matters.
But RBL has a decent run of games now, before it takes on Borussia Dortmund in the penultimate weekend of the Bundesliga. Wednesday, Leipzig, off a 5-0 win over Mainz 05 on the weekend, takes on Hertha Berlin, which had its own impressive 4-0 win Friday over 1. FC Union Berlin.
Despite the win for Hertha in the derby match, this should be a relatively easy win for RBL.
