“I think the fans noticed we definitely wanted to win the game,” HSV left-back Tim Leibold said. “It was a really good game for us, unfortunately with two points too few for us. We can still build on that.” Like Sebastian Schönlau banned as captain. His teammate David Kinsombe said: “It’s a good sign that we’ve come back twice after being left behind. But we’re also upset that we didn’t take more of our lead. We lacked a bit of luck in some situations.”
Voskovic gives a penalty in his first appearance in eleven matches
The 22,500 spectators admitted to Volkspark watched a brisk game from the start on Sunday afternoon as the Hamburgers, as always under coach Tim Walter, were programmed to attack football with Kinsombie (12th) and Sonny Keitel (5th). ten), the first two noteworthy goals were. “The Club” goalkeeper Christian Matinha saved each time. The people in front of him slowly reached their operating temperature, which was also due to HSV, which started again at a very high speed. But once Nuremberg put too much pressure on the host lines, it became clear that Walter’s defense was weak.
That’s what happened nearly 20 minutes later, when eleven debutants Mario Voskovic (like Schonlau in central defense) prevented his opponent, Nicolas Duvidan, from running with his arms. Referee Felix Zuer (Berlin) decided after watching television pictures of penalty kicks by Enrico Valentini (22).
Glatzel managed to equalize with his head
Voskovic’s goofy demeanor, slightly reminiscent of his hard-line style of play, HSV fan favorite Slobodan Rajkovic, has not escaped North Germans. They stormed and were rewarded twelve minutes later with a Robert Glatzel header 1-1. Zuer initially denied conceding the goal because he assumed Tim Leibold, who was offside, was still on the ball with his toe. But after the referee studied the motion picture, he pointed to the central circle.
Walter noted the game master’s decision with satisfaction and immediately began to row his right arm. His sign to the team: keep working at full capacity!
HSV waived 1:2 shortly after the break
Until the break, there wasn’t much to mention. Nuremberg put up a big exclamation point shortly after the start of the second half: Valentini allowed Moritz Heyer to go down the right corner of the penalty area in Hamburg and cross in to Leno Tempelmann, who fired 2-1 (46). For the second time on this sunny afternoon, HSV harmed itself with poor defensive behavior. Now the hosts had to run after the deficit again. Against an opponent who was tactically disciplined and always dangerous on their counterattacks.
Walter-Elf does not fall into action and be rewarded
At first the Hamburg team did not find the right way to decisively separate the ‘club’ defence. But this does not mean that Walter’s team is in the works. I refrained from using long balls to take out the crowbar. Instead, the heads and the playground equipment remained on the ground. Mostly anyway. Because in the 80th minute, Kittel hit an accurate cross on the far post, as “Air” Glatzel managed to head for the second time – 2: 2.
In the last stage, the hosts were closer to victory than Nuremberg, but in the end they had to be content with a draw, which did not help them on the board. But knowing there is moral and football intelligence to be able to catch up is probably very important.
