1:2 - HSV loses to SC Paderborn
HSV lost their home match against SC Paderborn with 1:2. SCP attacker Srbeny scored twice and Chakvetadze's goal in injury time came too late.
Hamburger SV lost the home game 1:2 (0:1) against SC Paderborn on Saturday (2 April). In front of 27,136 spectators at the Volksparkstadion, the visitors took the lead already in the first minute of the match. Srbeny scored and added the second goal in the second half (61st). In between, HSV had a lot of possession and the chance to equalise through a penalty kick, which Glatzel missed (57th). In addition, two goals were disallowed in the final phase due to a preceding offside position, so that despite Chakvetadze's late 1:2 (90.+3), the second defeat in the 14th home match was a foregone conclusion.
After the international break, HSV coach Tim Walter was able to draw on a full complement of players and field his established starting eleven of recent weeks. They were happy about the loud support from the stands, because for the first time after the months-long Corona restrictions, the organised fan scene had returned to the Volksparkstadion. But the anticipation that was palpable everywhere was put a severe damper on after less than 60 seconds, when SCP attacker Srbeny had the presence of mind to take advantage of the first ball loss by the Rothosen and, from just behind the halfway line, drove the ball over Heuer Fernandes into the goal for the early 0:1. This 45-metre goal in the first minute of the game understandably reverberated a little and HSV had to survive two or three more quick counter-attacks from the visitors, but just managed to avert greater disaster at the last second. So the home side stayed in the game - and fought their way back into it. The result was a lot of ball relays and a game that was shifted into the Paderborn half, only the clear-cut finishes were too rare. But Kittel & Co. kept going and came closer, but without any noteworthy success, so that despite 5:3 shots on goal and 75% ball possession, it went into half-time with the score 0:1.
... and a late goal
After the change of ends, the Rothosen tried to get a bit closer, played around the Paderborn penalty area again and again, looking for the decisive gap. This seemed to work a few times via Hamburg's right attacking side, where Jatta was difficult to stop, but unfortunately also too seldom found his team-mate in the centre. Nevertheless, the Reds stayed in it - and were rewarded with a penalty kick after Glatzel had been fouled in the sixteen, but missed it himself (57th). And as if that were not enough misfortune, there was a rattle on the other side just four minutes later. Once again it was Srbeny who broke through in the penalty area and was lucky to shoot at his former team-mate Schonlau, so that the ball deflected into the net to make it 0:2. Nevertheless, the Walter men did not give up, continued to play forward and were simply not in league with luck. Schonlau and Kaufmann scored twice in the closing stages of the game, but both times Jatta, who provided the assist, was just offside, so that the VAR conceded the goals again. And that somehow suited this afternoon of football from HSV's point of view, which was only brightened up to a certain extent by Chakvetadze's late 1:2 goal in injury time.
