In a very one-sided game, RB Leipzig thrashed Hertha BSC 6-0 at Red Bull Arena in the Bundesliga on Saturday afternoon.


According to Leipzig striker Yussuf Poulsen, who scored on his first start this season, the home side could have won by an even larger margin.

"Not just the win, but the whole performance will do us a lot of good. We could have scored more. This game was won as a team," said Poulsen.

"I'm proud of our performance. Even at 4-0, I saw players sprinting back to maintain the clean sheet."

The win saw Leipzig end a spell of three games without a win.
