HSV lose opening friendly 0-2

HSV were invited to play a friendly as part of the centnary celebrations of Austrian top flight side Wacker Innsbruck. A crowd of 6,870 on Friday evening (05.07.13) saw the Rothosen lose the game 0-2 through goals from Wallner and Wernitznig.

Nobody will ever know whether the long journey or simply the lack of match practise contributed most to a lacklustre HSV performance which saw them lost the opening friendly game of the new season 0-2 against Austrian first division side Wacker Innsbruck on Friday evening (05.07.13). The game was in celebration of the home side who in the past have had HSV legend Ernst Happel and (less legendary) Kurt Jara in charge. Current HSV boss Thorsten Fink was forced to fielsd a side which will probably never play again in the same formation. Left back Marcell Jansen was ruled out shortly before kick off with migraine. His place in the tream went to Dennis Diekmeier who rarely plays in that position. Jacopo Sala played at right back, while new signing Kerem Demirbay had a decent debut alongside Milan Badelj in defensive midfield. HSV had only trained twice since returning from the summer break and it showed.
 Crucial match practise for everyone

The home side on the other hand were much fresher only a fortnight before the start of their season. After Hamburg keeper Sven Neuhaus had produced stunning saves to deny Schütz and Hinterseer (30./32.), it was left to Roman Wallner to break the deadlock, which he did with a low shot from the edge of the area (43.). Thorsten Fink made six changes to his side during the break to give as many players as possible much-needed match practise. Two minutes into the second half the Austrians doubled their lead as Christopher Wernitznig headed home (47.). The home side squandered further chances late in the game but there were no further goals. After the game was over Fink said: "I don't want to attach too much importance to the game. Everyone saw that Innsbruck were much fresher and more together as a team than we are at the moment. Over the coming days we will be building up our strength in further friendlies." The first run the following day was at 9 in the morning. After that the team bus took the posse to Zillertal in Tirol Austria where they will hold a training camp until next Wednesday.
