Football Bundesliga: RB Leipzig wins at Hertha BSC thanks to Marcel Sabitzer's dream goal

Two weeks ago it was seven points behind, now RB Leipzig has moved up to two points in the Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich. Leipzig won 3-0 (1-0) at Hertha BSC on matchday 22, taking advantage of the fact that Bayern had lost in Frankfurt on Saturday. In the previous week, Munich had left points in the draw against Bielefeld.
Leipzig’s success in Berlin came about in a spectacular way: Marcel Sabitzer scored a goal from an enormous distance (28th minute).  The re were about 30 meters between him and the Berliner Tor when he shot; a position from which one does not actually close because the probability of scoring is so low. Sabitzer’s technique was so good that he was successful with it: © The  ball took off, hardly turned in the air, and Hertha goalkeeper Rune Jarstein calculated his trajectory so incorrectly that he just looked after him when the ball hit the goal .

 The  second goal resulted from a Berlin loss of the ball: Mattéo Guendouzi tried to dribble in his own penalty area, but let Leipzig’s Tyler Adams separate him from the ball. He got to Nordi Mukiele, who shot him powerfully into the goal (71.). It was the decision in a rather tough game in which Willi Orban made the final score after a Sabitzer cross after a corner kick (84th).

Except for the goals, RB found it difficult. Youssuf Poulsen had a chance, but shot past the far corner from a half-right position (24th), later Hee-Chan Hwang (57th) and Dani Olmo (68th) were unsuccessful. Otherwise the favorite was rather harmless.

At the back, RB only wobbled once when Lukas Klostermann had to save Dodi Lukébakio, who was ready to shoot (22nd). Even after the break, the Leipzig defense was defending steadily, with a few exceptions: First Herthas Lukébakio missed the possible equalization from an acute angle (50th), shortly afterwards it was Matheus Cunha, who shot from half-right free-standing on goal, where keeper Péter Gulácsi defended his feet was able to parry (51st).

 The  capital city club won the last time in early January when the team beat Schalke 3-0. That success is the only one from the past twelve league games. That means nothing good for the table from a Berlin point of view: With 18 points they are 15th, tied with Bielefeld on the relegation rank. However, Arminia has played one game less.
