3-0 away win against Hertha BSC

Nordi Mukiele (71’) and Willi Orban (84’) also on the scoresheet | Gap closed to two points at the top of the table

Fifth league win in a row! RB Leipzig pick up a deserved 3-0 win over Hertha BSC in the Olympiastadion. The team dominated play from the first minute, but it wasn’t until the 28th minute that the first goal was scored. Captain Marcel Sabitzer with a Goal of the Season contender from over 30 yards!

The two halves began in the same fashion: Pete Gulácsi pulling off strong a strong save to deny the Hertha attack, led by former Leipzig man Matheus Cunha. After early scares in each half, Julian Nagelsmann's men regained control in both stanzas.

Nordi Mukiele's powerful shot into the roof of the net from close range (71') and Willi Orban's header (84') put the result beyond doubt and eased the nerves for the game's final phase.
