Hamburger SV vs Freiburg Prediction & Betting tips
Now count for the Hamburger SV only victories! Four games remain the Hanseatic still to prevent the first descent into the second division. With eight points behind the relegation place, the odds of remaining in the league are bad. But hope dies last! Since the duel against SC Freiburg comes just right, who currently occupies this coveted relegation place. In a victory for the Hamburger would melt the gap to only five more counters.
The results from the last direct duels could hardly be more balanced. In the last six clashes between HSV and Freiburg there were six draws. The first leg of the season ended with a goalless draw. In October 2013, the last winner emerged from these duels. Hamburg was able to prevail 3-0.
22 points after 30 games speak a clear language. The Hamburger SV is on the penultimate place of the table, has a point clear of the last and eight points behind the relegation place, which the next opponent currently occupies. Twelve points can still be won. A victory against Freiburg and Wolfsburg in the next match are now an absolute must for HSV. After that it is also necessary to win at least once against the stronger opponents Frankfurt and Gladbach. A true Herculean task for a team that could only win five victories in the season so far.
However, a slight upward trend can be seen under the coach Christian Titz. Especially in the last home games HSV showed quite good performances. In the last home match Schalke 04 was defeated 3: 2. In the last five home games, the team took a win, two draws and went twice as losers from the square. On the previous matchday, there was a deserved 0-2 defeat in Hoffenheim.
From a personal point of view, it looks good for the Hanseatic League. Nicolai Müller was able to get back into team training after having passed the cruciate ligament injury. Dennis Diekmeier and captain Gotoku Sakai can also fully exercise again after minor problems with the ankle. Only the yellow-lock of defensive man Douglas Santos carries a bitter aftertaste, as the Brazilian is one of the absolute regulars of HSV.
For the SC Freiburg, the last few weeks have been catastrophic. The team of coach Christian Streich is now for a total of seven games without a win and is with 30 points in 16th place in the table. The last four games were all lost – including defeats against direct relegation competitors, as against Mainz 05 in the previous week and also against Wolfsburg the game before. These three teams now all hold at 30 points and fight on the remaining four matchdays against this undesirable relegation place. Three 0-2 defeats hailed in the last games. Overall, the SC Freiburg scored only two goals in the recent seven matches. It hooks both on the defensive, as well as on the offensive.
For the game against HSV will be two important players fail, which are now missing for some time. The offensive player Marco Terrazzino and especially central midfielder Amir Abrashi, who until the time of his injury to the trunk of the team counted, the team can not help. Abrashi has been particularly hard on this event and will not play this cruciate ligament tear this season either. Terrazzino could soon get back into the team training. From a personal point of view, no really positive news can be reported.
