Hamburger SV vs Magdeburg Prediction & Betting tips
There are games in football that focus more on coaches than on players in the run-up. That should also be the case in the duel between HSV and 1. FC Magdeburg. Hannes Wolf, for example, made his debut for HSV in the first leg in Magdeburg, having just taken over the coaching position at the Hanseatic League from Christian Titz. His counterpart will be Michael Oenning on Monday. He was once in the service of HSV and was responsible in the Bundesliga 14 times for the red roses and is still kicking for the Altliga Hamburger, so it allows time, which is currently less likely to be the case.
So far but first the story with the coaches. More important are the points that will be distributed on Monday. The HSV continues to fight for the direct re-emergence in the Bundesliga and still has relatively good cards. Behind the 1. FC Cologne ranked the red roses in second place and have at least up to fourth already a small cushion. Each victory brings the Hamburg now closer to the upper house. In the duel between HSV and Magdeburg a tip on a home win is the only right choice, because the Anhaltiner stuck in the middle of the relegation battle. The table cellar is really tight. Currently, four candidates for the two direct relegation places, the relegation and the relegation seem to be in the raffle. In addition to Magdeburg are the Ingolstadt, Sandhausen and Duisburg. After Sandhausen and Ingolstadt have already scored at the weekend, the pressure on the FCM has increased. It will have to show how the team of Michael Oenning deals with it. However, in the match between HSV and Magdeburg, we would not give a positive prognosis for a win by the visitors. Even a point win for the Magdeburg would certainly be a surprise, with the HSV is actually always good to leave even unexpected points, which is usually the case when the Hanseatic have a chance to settle in the classification a little. We’ll see what it looks like on Monday.
At HSV you never really know what you get. Every now and then the Hanseatic people are playing really great football, but then there are setbacks again and you do not get a leg on the ground. After all, there was only one defeat in the last five games. It is interesting that the unpopular with the fans Monday is the best game of the Rothosen. The HSV had to go on the pitch five times this season until the start of the week and scored 13 out of 15 possible points. Maybe there will be some sort of love relationship between the hamburgers and the Monday until the end of the season. This is a statistic that makes the odds of a home win even more attractive in the duel between HSV and Magdeburg. The Hamburg are the big favorite in this encounter. After the last appearance in Paderborn, it seems hard to imagine that the euphoria in their own stadium will leave them against the promoted team.
On Tuesday in Paderborn managed the red roses something that has not happened in ten years. The HSV has moved into the semifinals for the DFB Pokal. Of course, we should not be so presumptuous, and believe in the title, but a warm rain of money is this entry into the semifinal always. Hamburg was very compact in Paderborn and barely allowed a chance of the opponent. On the other hand, the Hamburg had once again with Pierre-Michel Lasogga his match winner in the ranks. The brawny striker scored twice in the 2-0 win.
This makes him the most successful shooter ever in the DFB Cup this season. Kyriakos Papadopoulos was able to make his comeback after months of injury and is right back to the leader. So he gives the HSV fans before the match against Magdeburg also a promise that he and his colleagues will do anything to make a victory with the next step towards promotion. Personally, it now looks much better again. Aaron Hunt and Hee-Chan Hwang are unlikely to be involved, but are well on the way to taking on crucial roles in the closing stages of the season. Otherwise missing Jairo Samperio and Josha Vagnoman. We expect a similar formation as in Paderborn, but can still imagine that the hamburgers will act a bit more offensive.
The 1. FC Magdeburg has come from the winter break and was excellent in January and February in a total of five second division games without defeat. Everything looked afterwards as if the league could be brought together relatively soon. Meanwhile, the competition has scored diligently and the Anhaltiner so a little on the spot. In the last five games there was no victory. Only three draws jumped out. For the league it could not be enough, if the FCM does not re-enter threesome in the coming weeks. After all, the defensive is very compact recently. That could be a deciding factor in the relegation battle. Nevertheless, in the game between HSV and Magdeburg, we would not tip on an away win and also not on a point win of Magdeburg. Nevertheless, we can be sure that on Monday, the guests will fight for every inch of the grass and will not lose a duel.
That was also the case last weekend in a duel against 1. FC Heidenheim. In front of their own audience, the FCM has given away two points. Magdeburg was the much better team and played full on victory, especially when Heidenheim had to accept a dismissal 20 minutes before the end.
Felix Lohkemper had the biggest chance in extra time when he failed to score on penalties. If this point loss will not take revenge in the final bill. In any case, the performance has given encouragement and that’s why Michael Oenning is optimistic about the duel with his former club. He especially conjures up the cohesion of his team. Of course, Captain Christian Beck would be enormously important in this regard. The striker could make his comeback against HSV after a serious head injury. We assume that he will sit down on the bench first. In terms of performance, there is no reason to make changes in the starting lineup compared to the previous week. Overall, Michael Oenning in Hamburg probably has his complete squad available.
