After relegation in the last year, it is important for the North Germans to return to the Bundesliga as soon as possible. As current leaders they are on a very good way. The SCP, however, is in the secured midfield. As a climber, this is a good performance. They are far from the relegation zone and so far enjoy a quiet season.

The Hamburger SV is still on the road in the mission Aufaufstieg. After fifteen matches, they are at the top of the table with nine wins, four draws and two defeats. With 31 points, they are one point ahead of their closest rival, the 1. FC Köln. The lead on the relegation place, on which the Eisernen from Berlin currently stands, is already four points. Under the new coach Hannes Wolf, who replaced Christian Titz on the bridge in October, the HSV is still unbeaten. In addition to four wins and a draw in the league, they were able to reach the knockout stages in the DFB Cup by a 3-0 at Wehen Wiesbaden.
With 15 goals the North Germans represent the second best defense of the league. Only Union Berlin conceded with eleven goals even fewer hits. In the offensive they have a very accurate striker with Pierre-Michel Lasogga. He was able to start seven times this season. However, he will miss his team in the next games. His injury suffered on Sunday at the training now turned out to be a hamstring in the calf and he has to pause for three weeks. There is a small hope that he can play in the last game of this year in Kiel again. Also missing is Vasilije Janjicic, who saw the fifth yellow card. Last Saturday Coach Wolf’s team had to compete at FC Ingolstadt. Two goals from Aaron Hunt and Hee-Chan Hwang, a Kaya goal conceded a deserved 2-1 win.
