2nd league: HSV conceded the second consecutive defeat at SV Sandhausen and had to worry about promotion

Hamburger SV received the next low blow in the promotion race of the 2nd Bundesliga. The team of coach Daniel Thioune lost after a creepy performance at the previous table penultimate SV Sandhausen 1: 2 (0: 0) and threatens to gamble away the intended return to the upper house on the home straight in the third second division year.

But that also applies to Fortuna Düsseldorf (49) in fourth place, Holstein Kiel in sixth (46) has played three fewer games due to the corona and could overtake HSV, which has not won in three games, with just two wins.

“We didn’t take place for the first 60 minutes. All in all, it was very disappointing,” said HSV keeper Sven Ulreich on Sky-Microphone: “It’s a defeat that hurts a lot. The other teams score, but we won’t give up.”

An own goal by Stephan Ambrosius (46th) and the goal by Daniel Keita-Ruel (52nd) ensured Hamburg’s second defeat in a row on Thursday evening, Manuel Wintzheimer’s (76th) connection came too late. The sand houses, on the other hand, drew new courage in the fight to stay up. As tables-16. the saving bank is in sight with two more catching up games up its sleeve.

Both teams played their first game after a forced Corona break in the Black Forest Stadium. Sandhausen was in a two-week quarantine. The HSV was affected by a corona-related game loss – and did not get into the game at all on his comeback.

The next chance only 20 seconds after the restart caused the HSV deficit, Ambrosius’ rescue attempt by head landed after a cross from the hosts in his own goal.
