Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: Hertha Berlin at RB Leipzig Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

RB Leipzig and Hertha Berlin collide Wednesday in a thrilling Bundesliga contest, though the hosts should be treated as massive favorites to win and thus get strong fantasy appeal in this Dream11 matchup. Led by Timo Werner and Marcel Sabitzer, Leipzig defeated Mainz last weekend and pushed their undefeated streak in league play to eight games (W3, D5). Meanwhile, Hertha are coming off a huge 4-0 derby win over Union Berlin, but they have won just two of their last five league games. As if that wasn't enough, the visitors will miss several experienced players due to injury, such as Salomon Kalou, Santiago Ascacibar and Niklas Stark. Undoubtedly, the hosts appear to be clear favorites to run away with the three points Wednesday.
