THE TEAM NEWS

HAMBURGER SV

  • After three games without a victory, Hamburger SV earned their first win since the resumption of Bundesliga 2 as they got their promotion challenge back on track with a vital win against Wehen Wiesbaden.
  • Panic could have set in after falling behind on 12 minutes but Hamburg responded quickly thanks to David Kinsombi’s strike before taking the lead through Joel Pohjanpalo, although they were pegged back as Wehen equalised from the spot in the second period.
  • Despite that setback, Hamburg continued to press forward and were rewarded as Kinsombi bagged his second of the game to seal the victory and they have been given a huge boost ahead of this clash after Gideon Jung was declared fit with the centre-back pushing to come straight into the starting XI.

HOLSTEIN KIEL

  • Holstein Kiel made it back-to-back defeats as they lost to top of the table Arminia Bielefeld last time out but the manner of that loss is less than ideal preparation for this clash with Hamburger SV.
  • Kiel trailed at the break but hit back soon after through Alexander Muhling and that looked like it would be enough to seal an impressive point but they failed to see the game out and conceded in the second minute of stoppage time.
  • They will have to put that disappointment behind them quickly or they face a third straight defeat but they could be dealt an injury blow with Salih Ozcan a doubt who is carrying an adductor problem.

THE PREDICTION

Promotion is still very much on the cards for Hamburger SV after they earned a much-needed victory to end a run of three matches without a win last week. They will be eager to stay in touch with the two teams above them as they host a Holstein Kiel side that have lost their last two games. They let what would have been an impressive point slip away from them as they conceded in stoppage time against league leaders Arminia Bielefeld last week and that disappointment is likely to be difficult to overcome against the hosts with Hamburg likely to be too good.
