Hamburg: Late goals threaten HSV-ascent

bad luck, inability, or a head Problem? The Hamburger SV and the curse of the late goals to give coach Dieter Hecking some puzzles. "I can't answer. To find an answer, would probably be something for the psychologists,“ he said on Monday evening after the Last-Second-shock to the 3:3 in the North duel against Holstein Kiel.

Through the draw, it missed the HSV before the decisive final phase in the 2. Football League the jump on a direct promotion spot. "These are things that hurt very, very much," said the 55-Year-old. "The point losses that nobody needs."

After the end of the Corona-forced break, conceding his team in three of five Games in the respective Overtimes goals against: the 2:2 against Fürth in the 2:3 against VfB Stuttgart, and now against Kiel. "This can happen once, but three times in such a short period of time must not be allowed to happen to what is easy," said Hecking.

but The reality is: The HSV is lagging behind with 50 meters further behind League leaders Arminia Bielefeld (57) and VfB Stuttgart (52) and has not in the last four Games in the own Hand. Behind the hamburgers of the 1 lurking too. FC Heidenheim (48). He could displace the HSV from the rise relegation place. It is the same scenario as in 2019, threatened, as of the HSV missed as the Fourth ascension. From the second-division a flying visit after the descent of 2018, a period could be stay.

The hope of the HSV: The rivals from Stuttgart and Heidenheim are not just examples of constancy. On the weekend, Stuttgart were only to a 0:0 against VfL Osnabrück. The first game after the end of the Corona-break they had. at the relegation candidates Wiesbaden lost labor, also in Kiel, ended in a defeat The Heidenheim-based documents when you restart in Bochum and on Sunday in Hannover.

The 3:3 on Monday evening, with the last offensive action of the game through the Kiel Jae Sung Lee mind was figuratively: the closer the final whistle comes, the more nervous passengers on the Hamburg in tight games.

"That's what bothers us excessively. Not because the opponents play us on the wall, but because we don't get to defend at the end,“ said Hecking. This must be stopped "immediately".

After all, the coach has seen against the neighbors from the North also Positive. "We also have good things done in the game, taker-qualities proven to be." Twice the Hamburger setbacks, got The early lead through Alexander Mühling (9.) they shot by Aaron Hunt (21./Foul penalty) and Joel Pohjanpalo (23.) to break the balance to the 2:2 from Emmanuel Iyoha (64.) Pohjanpalo (67 countered.) again. On Lee's hit, the HSV had a chance to react then no more time to.

especially captain Hunt and the Finnish Leverkusen-on loan from Pohjanpalo are currently as stability factors in the HSV game. The 33-year-old Hunt is replace the impeller, and ideas unlikely to. The 25-year-old Pohjanpalo has conquered with seven goals since his transfer in the winter break, a place in the offensive center. As both were in the game against Kiel, the Hamburg-based your line and points.

The KSV Holstein, which remained in the fourth second League game against HSV unbeaten, had made in the past few weeks a similar experience with late goals as your opponent. "Today it was Vice versa. We needed the goal, have thrown everything forward and have earned us the gateway to the whole of the 90 minutes,“ said coach Ole Werner. "It was extremely important for the head and the table."

As the table and the ninth in his Team with 39 meters, now has nine points ahead of the relegation play-off place. The Class whereabouts is likely to be four game days before the end of the season as well for sure. "Congratulations, you take first, if it is to the extent," said Werner. "That's a snail's race on the way to the 40-point mark."
