Shortly before the end of the game, HSV goalkeeper Daniel Heuer Fernandez discovered how fast football can be. He was still the man of the match in the quarterfinals against Carlsroehr SC on Wednesday evening and became the saddest man in the 88th minute of the game in Nuremberg. He sent a tough shot from FCN professional Tim Handwerker into the goal. After a while it was over and HSV were without points in the second consecutive league game. The previous weekend saw a bitter defeat against Werder Bremen in the Northern Derby.
“Of course it would be very annoying if we fail with such a despicable goal,” Heuer Fernandez told the NDR. He described the situation as follows: “The striker plays in the middle, then shoots. The ball rises very flat in front of me. The pitch is new. But that’s not a reason. The ball lasted. It’s annoying. We lose like that.”
Walter did not want to hear about a setback. “We lost one game, but we have nine games,” the 46-year-old said. The way his team performed was great. He did not criticize his goalkeeper: “We will win together, we will fail together, so I gave nothing.”
HSV loses contact with top teams
This failure had undesirable consequences for Hamburg. The gap between Dormstad 98 and FC Saint Polly has widened to six points. Both teams had previously won the 25th day match, with the city rivals winning At home against Carlsruhr SC. The Walter team is in fifth place with 41 points.
As soon as the kick-off was over at Max Morlock Stadium, a very interesting game was created. After Nuremberg’s Pascal Kopke missed the first good chance (11th), the son of former national goalkeeper Andreas Kopke did well four minutes later and deceived the guests. From a short distance he pushed the ball over the goal line to give the Franconians a 1-0 lead.
It was not long before the North Germans ‘response came with a great chance from Giorgi Sacvedatse (12’): after a good back pass from Bakery Jatta, Ludovic Reyes converted it 1-1 (25) with a goal from nine meters. ‘). After the first half, the HSV were the dominant team, but this superiority presented no chance. It was 1-1 at the break.
The artisan plundered Hamburg’s point
After the restart, the picture changed: Nuremberg was now pushed hard. Only towards the middle of the second round was it a balanced game again, but it did not provide as much entertainment as it did in the first division. The chances of scoring were slim.
That changed in the final minute.HSV captain Sebastian Schonlov shot over the goal in the 84th minute. Four minutes later, Handwerker was out, and HSV was empty for the second time in a row in the second division.
