Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Saturday’s football game at Olympiastadion pits together Hertha Berlin and Leipzig, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the season finale. Hertha’s main goal is to secure the Bundesliga survival, but their four-match winless run is not giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of upcoming challenges. Talented forward Jessic Ngankam should be given a spot in the starting XI after scoring as a substitute in a 1-1 draw with Freiburg, while all Stevan Jovetic, Jean-Paul Boetius, Chidera Ejuke, and Kelian Nsona miss out with injuries.
Ivan Sunjic is rated doubtful with personal reasons. Meanwhile, the Red Bulls are eyeing a spot in the Champions League, and they will not have a better chance than this to make amends for a shocking 3-0 loss to Mainz. Key attacker Chistopher Nkunku is closing in on a return, while all Yussuf Poulsen, Xaver Schlager, and Peter Gulacsi remain in the treatment room.
Highlighted Player (Timo Werner):
Timo Werner is a German starlet, who began his senior career at Vfb Stuttgart. The German forward, who was born in Stuttgart on March 6, 1996, scored 13 goals in 95 appearances in the league for Die Schwaben and in 2016 he moved to fellow Bundesliga side Leipzig and he impressed with the Red Bulls in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign, scoring 21 goals in the process.
To make things even better for the talented attacker, he represented Germany at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup and it has to be noted that he provided an assist for Lars Stindl in the title game. Despite the fact that coach Joachim Low rested star players at the tournament in Russia, the Germans eventually won the trophy.
