Leipzig go next with 4-2 comeback win in Hertha Berlin

Last updated on November 9, 2019

RB Leipzig cruised past hosts Hertha Berlin 4-2 on Saturday to provisionally go next in the Bundesliga table, before winners Bayern Munich sponsor Borussia Dortmund later.

Maximilian Mittelstaedt place the home side ahead in the 32nd with a thundering shot, but Leipzig’s Timo Werner responded with a penalty six minutes before Marcel Sabitzer turned the match around about the stroke of halftime with a deflected shot.

Kevin Kampl then timed his run down the left wing to perfection to beat the offside trap and drill into Leipzig’s third at the 86th minute.

Werner then tapped in his 11th objective of the effort in stoppage time until Davie Selke pulled back to the host’s moments afterwards.

Leipzig are on 21 points, together with Dortmund on 19 and Bayern a further point behind. Leaders Borussia Moenchengladbach amuse Werder Bremen on Sunday.
