With last three threesters in series this season, among other things against city trival St. Pauli, and by far the strongest defensive (20 goals, seven less than the number 2 Schalke), the HSV is in the middle of the ascent race. In front of the hanseates, with only one point more the North Rivals St. Pauli and Werder Bremen each with 41 points.
With all the Europhistry and a short look at the table, the HSV could underestimate the upcoming opponent of Sandhausen (Saturday from 13.30 clock). Not so coach Tim Walter. “I believe that you have to be free to always look at the table. We take every opponent first. They also have a good shape and a few goals.” Seven points from the last three games collected Sandhausen last, each played to zero. Among them was the first home win of the season, two weeks ago against Aue. According to the current form, the pork halls are a top team, like the HSV.
Sandhausen in the table a flop, the shape top
“We are well advised that we always go full throttle. Also this game we have to take 100 percent again to be successful. Therefore, it does not matter at all that you are already changing in advance, if one thinks, you want to spare someone, most of the trousers goes in the pants, “said Walter.
The reasons for the recent bustling of the SVS? These are certainly some of the numerous winter new entries, as most recently started from the Tom Trybull used in the defensive midfield and center-back Dario Dumic and left outside Erich Berko. “I think if you play against an association, which in winter has gotten eight new entries in the winter and has a completely different face that you’ve already got there and be careful that you do not underestimate anyone,” Walter commented on the opponent’s changes.
Walter’s teams are always lost in Sandhausen
In the Sandhausen Stadium, however, the HSV coach has not yet succeeded in successfully setting his team on the SVS. “Whoever was there, it knows exactly. That’s why we know that it is hard to play there, extremely difficult. “In April 2019 he was already there and lost 2: 3 with Holstein Kiel and in December 2019 1: 2 with the VfB Stuttgart.” There are many long balls, it’s a heated mood, that’s a lot of duel, “describes the 46-year-old the special circumstances. The HSV itself lost its last game in the Kurpfalz also, at the 1: 2 in April 2021, in the season earlier you had 1 : 1 played. The last Hamburg victory at the SVS already dates from almost four years ago.
