HSV in the deep – Heidenheim and Düsseldorf are approaching

After the third defeat in nine days, Hamburger SV is in a serious sporting crisis. The Hanseatic League lost 2:3 (0:1) against the previous bottom of the table 1. FC Magdeburg around the former HSV coach Christian Titz and thus missed the jump to the direct promotion place two. The pursuers 1. FC Heidenheim and Fortuna Düsseldorf moved closer due to their successes.

Heidenheim inflicted a 3-1 (2-0) defeat on relegated Greuther Fürth in the first game after the separation from coach Marc Schneider and, fourth in the table, is only two points behind Hamburg. Fürth is the new bottom behind Arminia Bielefeld. Düsseldorf took the momentum from the DFB Cup and stopped the negative trend of the last two league defeats with the 2-0 (2-0) win at Karlsruher SC. Fortuna is sixth, five points behind HSV.

Mo El Hankouri scored the opening goal for FCM in the eleventh minute in Hamburg. Baris Atik scored again for the guests seven minutes after the restart, Ransford Königsdörffer (58′) was able to close the gap before Julian Rieckmann (88′) restored the old lead. The second HSV goal by Tom Sanne (90+3) came too late. Practically with the final whistle, the crossbar stood in the way of the Hamburg equalizer.

For the guests it was the second away win of the current season. With this success, Magdeburg improved to 15th place in the table.

Captain Patrick Mainka (9th), Tim Kleindienst (33rd) and Jan-Niklas Beste (56th, hand penalty) ensured Heidenheim’s success. The interim goal from Branimir Hrgota (52nd) was not enough for the Fürth team, who were coached by interim coach Rainer Widmayer.

With his first goals of the season, Kristoffer Peterson (8th/22nd) gave the self-proclaimed promotion contender from Düsseldorf a comfortable lead early on in Karlsruhe.

After a Häme tweet: Werder apologizes to HSV

Bundesliga promoted Werder Bremen received an Internet shit storm after a malicious tweet in the direction of rival Hamburger SV and deleted the post again. “Sorry HSV, our tweet about the end of the game was completely inappropriate and unsportsmanlike,” the club wrote in response on Tuesday morning: “We know from our own experience what emotions are associated with relegation. We hope that there will soon be northern derbies in the Bundesliga again.”

After the final whistle of the relegation second leg, the Werder account published a video showing the promotion celebration of the fans in the Weser Stadium. “See Hamburg, that’s how it’s done,” they sang. “It would be really insensitive and not very sensitive if someone were to post this video now…” wrote the club and added a winking smiley. There was criticism for this on the platform.

Due to a 2-0 defeat against Hertha BSC on Monday, HSV missed out on returning to the Bundesliga. Bremen had secured direct promotion to Germany’s top division on matchday 34.
