And suddenly I’m in the middle again, instead of just being there. With a 4-0 away win at FC Ingolstadt, HSV drew level on points with their unloved city rivals St. Pauli and even overtook them due to better goal difference. At least in the meantime they can also get a taste of third place, that of relegation. At least until Darmstadt meets Aue on Saturday evening (8.30pm). But the most important message for the Hamburgers is independence from the table: they are fully present in the final sprint.
It has been a lot of work with the permanent relegation to the Audi Sportpark, at least initially. The FCI bulwark initially kept HSV well under control, but then Tim Walter’s team gradually took the first bites. Then Robert Glatzel, free in front of Dejan Stojanovic (14th), missed the first first-class player after a strong submission of the kittel.
