Leipzig atomizes Hertha Berlin, doubled by Christopher Nkunku


18 goals in 3 matches were scored this Sunday in the Bundesliga. After Dortmund’s lesson against Gladbach (6-0), it was RB Leipzig who shattered their opponent of the day (6-1). His victim? Hertha, in its Berlin stadium, which had already conceded as many goals in the first leg last September (6-0).

Benjamin Henrichs opened the scoring (20th), before Stevan Jovetic equalized for Hertha (48th). But after the red card from Marc Oliver Kempf (62nd) for a foul in the position of last defender, the Berliners collapsed, conceding goals from Nkunku (64th from the penalty spot, 67th), Dani Olmo (74th), Amadou Haidara (82nd ) and Yussuf Poulsen (88th).

The RB in excellent dynamics

This victory allows RasenBallsport to retain their fourth place in the standings, synonymous with qualification for the Champions League, but on equal points with Hoffenheim and Fribourg.

The RB, which completely missed its start to the season, is currently in an excellent dynamic, with its new coach Domenico Tedesco, who arrived in mid-December to succeed the American Jesse Marsch, sacked for poor results. The men of Red Bull have lost only one of their eight matches since January (3-2 on Bayern’s lawn) and after having fought a splendid battle at the “Rekordmeister”.
