HSV has one last chance this Monday to make it into the Bundesliga. In the relegation second leg against VfB Stuttgart, however, coach Tim Walter’s team needs a little football miracle after the first leg was clearly lost 3-0. The Hamburgers are hoping for a historic comeback in front of their home crowd in the Volksparkstadion. Will June 5, 2023 be a day to remember? With the MOPO live ticker you won’t miss any crucial scenes of the game.
The relegation in the live ticker
- The game’s referee is the very experienced Bastian Dankert (42) from Rostock. The full-time sports scientist and FIFA referee has already officiated more than 200 games in the Bundesliga and 2nd division and also refereed Stuttgart’s 2019 relegation game against Union Berlin (2: 2). And he already whistled today’s pairing: In October 2019, when HSV lost dramatically in the second round of the DFB Cup 2-1 against Stuttgart in extra time.
- VfB Stuttgart relies on this starting eleven: Müller – Mavropanos, Anton, Ito, Sosa – Karazor, Endo – Vagnoman, Millot, Führich – Guirassy
- As expected, HSV coach Tim Walter changes one position: Javi Montero replaces the ailing Jonas David in the first eleven and celebrates his starting eleven debut in the Volkspark. With an average of 27.4 years, it is the oldest HSV starting eleven under Walter.
- HSV starts with the following line-up: Heuer Fernandes – Heyer, Montero, Schonlau, Muheim – Meffert – Reis, Kittel – Jatta, Glatzel, Dompé
- HSV, spectacle, Stuttgart – there was something there. On October 26, 2019, the two teams met for the first time in the 2nd division, the duel in the Volkspark turned into fireworks. In the end, HSV defeated VfB 6-2 – this result would now be enough for promotion. It didn’t change anything back then, Stuttgart went up in second place behind Bielefeld and HSV ended up in fourth place.
- And Walter is not wrong. HSV has been unbeaten on home turf since October 2022, in the last ten home games there have been eight wins and two draws – and an average of exactly three goals per game. At least as many will now be needed against Stuttgart.
- In any case, HSV coach Tim Walter has not yet given up hope. Above all, he sees the support of the local fans in the Volkspark as a great advantage for a comeback.
- In the 25 relegation duels between the Bundesliga and the 2nd division so far, no team has managed to catch up from a three-goal deficit in the second leg. 1. FC Nürnberg then easily prevailed against Energie Cottbus in 2009 (3:0, 2:0) and Eintracht Frankfurt also shifted down a few gears against MSV Duisburg in 1984 (5:0, 1:1). Is HSV creating something historic now?
- To be honest, there isn’t much that speaks for HSV anymore. After the clear 3-0 defeat in the first leg in Stuttgart, Hamburg need a perfect evening of football if they still want to turn the relegation in their favor.
- Hello and welcome to the MOPO live ticker on Monday evening! HSV welcomes VfB Stuttgart to the relegation second leg in the Volkspark, kick-off is at 8:45 p.m.
