Hamburger SV II vs Werder Bremen II by Dajkula
In round 23 of the Regionalliga Nord Hamburger II welcomes Werder II. It looks to be a fairly contested match but the guests have the form on their side which eludes the hosts. Hamburger is second in the league with 45 points while Werder is first with 46. The situation was much different just before the break when Hamburger was the undefeated team in the league and had a heavy advantage on first place. Things started going wrong when the team left several influential players who were called in first team of HSV. Losses started and now it is 5 in a row for HSV II. In every of those games HSV II conceded at least 2 goals. The players that were called in HSV: "Gouaida(mid.17-6), Marcos(def.18-1), Mende(mid.19-0), Steinman(mid.13-3), Cigerci(mid.12-7), Jung(mid.17-2), Gotz(mid.12-0)". As we can see the midfield line took heavy damage. Some of these players do come back in second team but also play for HSV. I question their focus.
Werder II is since last round the leader of the table. They are undefeated in thelast 11 games and started the second part with 2 wins which propeled them to the top. Werder is the best away team with 6-5-0 and 30:12 goal difference. They do concede a lot of goals but mostly outcore the opponent with their stellar attack. Werder lost the first match of the season vs HSV by 2:4 but we are speaking about a different team of HSV. Werder does do well away @ HSV and they won the last 3 trips.
HSV is down on form and confidence. Werder should really take advantage of the situation.
