Hamburg vs Hertha in Relegation Scrap

Neither club have had much luck of fate, since both sides fighting just to keep their heads above water with only nine games left to play in this season. What is all the matters for both clubs is securing top-flight status for another year.

Hamburger SV stays just two points clear of the third-bottom SC Paderborn and there is a chance for them to be dragged back into the relegation zone. Their upcoming days depends on results elsewhere if they fail to get a point against a Hertha side only a point better off in 14th.

Rene Adler, the former German international, is set to make his first start since the Matchday 2 defeat to Paderborn after Jaroslav Drobny was sent off last weekend. While the key player of Hamburg, Lewis Hotby will be desperate to make the most of what’s left of his loan spell from Tottenham Hotspur FC. Following his broken collarbone surgery, Holtby missed the first seven games of Ruckrunde.

Previously, Hamburger SV suffered from a 3-0 defeat at TSG 1899 Hoffenheim on Matchday 25 and they have only won twice in their last ten outings.

Hertha head coach, Pal Dardai, expected that it will be a feisty game, but he was sure that his men were physically and mentally ready for any conditions. “It will be tough and it is going to demand a lot of us, but obviously I want to win in Hamburg,” he said. Hertha have played well and unbeaten in their last three games.

And the match ended with Hertha Berlin leaves Hamburg with vital win in their relegation battle. Hertha secured a hugely important three points, while Hamburg are left struggling near the relegation zone.

During the match, Hamburg was ponderous and lacking quality across the pitch, while Dardain’s men was stingy in defense and showing much more confidence in possessing the ball. The fact that northern Germans required much more effort to save their lives with just 16 goal this season, which is the lowest in the Bundesliga. And it was Sebastian Langkamp’s 84th minute goal that brought win for Berlin side, and could became the end of Hamburg’s coach career, Josef Zinnbauer.

Without a win in six games, Friday’s defeat (13/3) at the hands of another relegation-battling rival could be the end of the road for the 44-years-old coach. Hamburg chiefs now have a decision to make over Zinnbauer’s future, agonizing over changing coach and looking for a short-term bounce to keep their head above water.
