Given that they have won their last three games on home soil, they will fancy their chances of getting a good result in this game and record a four-game-winning run on home soil for the first time since February.

Given that they have scored ten goals and conceded just once across the last four and a half hours of play in their home venue, the Red Bulls are certainly charging towards recording a win and extending their impressive record against a Hertha Berlin side that have suffered the most defeats at the hands of Leipzig than any other team in the league.

Hertha Berlin 

Hertha Berlin will look to end a run of four games without a win when they face RB Leipzig on Saturday.

The visitors are unbeaten in their last five league games, but have recorded four draws in their last four Bundesliga games. That’s the second-longest active unbeaten streak ahead of this round behind Freiburg, yet Hertha are also currently on their longest run of Bundesliga draws since a five-game streak back in 2005/06.

However, after picking up just one of the first 12 available points, seven points from the last 15 available represent some improvement. 

Despite that, the visitors will need to convert their solidity into wins if they are to improve on their current league position. The Berlin-based club are sitting in 14th place, just two points ahead of Schalke, with their one win after nine rounds being their lowest total in the top flight at this stage since 2009/10. 

Possible Hertha Berlin starting line-up

Oliver Christensen; Jonjoe Kenny, Agustin Rogel, Marc-Oliver Kempf, Marvin Plattenhardt; Lucas Tousart, Ivan Sunjic, Suat Serdar; Dodi Lukebakio, Stevan Jovetic, Chidera Ejuke.

Injured: Wilfried Kanga, Davie Selke, Filip Uremovići, Kelian Nsona, Jean-Paul Boetius, Jessic Ngankam

Doubtful: None
