News : HSV missed the promotion again – sport
Hamburger SV loses in Osnabrück and has to play in the 2nd Bundesliga for another year. Kiel and Bochum are nervous, Fürth is the winner of the day.
The dream of promotion has finally burst, Hamburger SV will play in the second division for the fourth year in a row. The team of coach Horst Hrubesch embarrassed themselves with 2: 3 (1: 1) at the relegation candidate VfL Osnabrück and gambled away the last chance for the relegation place. Robin Meißner (37th) and Tim Leibold (82nd) scored too few goals. Osnabrück improved to 16th place thanks to the hits from Christian Santos (34th), Maurice Multhaup (60th) and Marc Heider (84th).
HSV found it difficult to get involved. The ease of beating 1. FC Nürnberg (5: 2) was gone. Hamburg had a lot of possession against strong hosts, but lacked speed and ideas. So it took until the 23rd minute before Simon Terodde got his first good chance. The striker failed but VfL goalkeeper Philipp Kühn and missed his 23rd goal. Initially, this scene did not serve as a wake-up call for the guests. The HSV defensive acted far too passively when the Osnabrückers took the lead. Santos headed in from close range. But the Hamburgers showed a reaction. Meißner scored from distance to equalize, Kühn did not cut a good figure. But the equalization gave the favorite no security. Goalkeeper Sven Ulreich prevented Ulrich Taffertshofer from falling back again (48th), but the former Bayern goalkeeper had no chance against Multhaup. The HSV did not give up. But after the renewed equalization by Leibold, Heider finally destroyed the Hanseatic dream of advancement.
Bochum and Kiel do not win
VfL Bochum has awarded its first match ball and missed the premature promotion to the Bundesliga. On the penultimate matchday at 1. FC Nürnberg, the team of coach Thomas Reis did not get past a 1-1 (0: 1) and must continue to tremble about the long-awaited return to the top division. At the showdown at the end of the season on Sunday, VfL will still have everything in their own hands in the home game against SV Sandhausen. On Sunday afternoon, Nuremberg’s Georg Margreitter (38th) was spoiled for the game with a header in his last home game for FCN, the equalizer from Robert Zulj (76th) was too little.
Holstein Kiel was also unable to use its first match point for direct promotion in the promotion battle. The cup semi-finalist at Karlsruher SC with 2: 3 (1: 0) and could not decisively outrun the pursuer SpVgg Greuther Fürth. On the last day of the match, the storks received Darmstadt 98. With his goal in the 41st minute, Jann-Luca Serra seemed to shoot his way into the club history of the traditional club. The midfielder was successful with a low shot. But goals from Malik Batmaz (52nd) and twice Philipp Hofmann (61st and 77th minute) turned the game. Alexander Mühling (84th) was able to shorten the penalty with a penalty.
Fürth has the relegation safe
SpVgg Greuther Fürth can continue to dream of being promoted to the Bundesliga for the second time. The Franks won 4: 2 (2: 2) at SC Paderborn on the penultimate matchday and have already secured third place. Direct ascent is also still within reach. Havard Nielsen (28th), Branimir Hrgota (42nd) and Paul Seguin (47th) ensured the away win in the turbulent game. An own goal by Paul Jaeckel (22nd) and Chris Führich (45th + 3) were not enough for Paderborn.
