Willi Orban helped his RB Leipzig side bounce back from their first defeat of the season with a captain’s performance in their 2-0 win over Hertha Berlin.
A surprising loss to FC Ingolstadt 04 had brought Leipzig’s amazing run to the top of the table in their first Bundesliga season to an end, so Matchday 15 was a time to get back on the horse and Orban led by example as always. His second-half headed goal all but sealed three points, typifying a display that makes him a prime candidate for this week’s BLMVP vote.
