Of course, the HSV also tried very big drama on the last few meters of the hotly contested promotion race. Because through a goal by Nico Neidhart (13th) the red pants on the Baltic Sea were long ago and there were already a lot to fourth place in a row before striker Robert Glatzel (50th), captain Sebastian Schonlau (75.) and Joker Mikkel Kaufmann (85.) the game turned.

And Hamburg? This didn’t come up with much for a long time. Except for a header of defender Mario Vuskovic, who rushed past the left post, and an arch lamp by Sebastian Schonlau, the Hansa keeper Markus Kolke forced the only intervention in the first section, could not be seen to the front of the Walter team.

The second half then started with a Hamburg bang. After an exemplary Vuskovic flank, Glatzel hit his head.

The HSV then made a lot of steam – and was rewarded. First Sonny Kittel failed free -standing after a great combination – then Schonlau and merchant met.
