2:1 - HSV Triumph in First Round VS Braunschweig

Jan Gyamerah and Robert Glatzel scored  the goals to secure HSV's progress against a committed Braunschweig side in a proper cup fight.

An overall commanding 2-1 (1-1), Hamburger SV secured its ticket to the second round of the 2021/22 DFB Cup against 3.Liga Eintracht Braunschweig on Sunday evening (August 8). In front of 6,167 spectators at Eintracht-Stadion on Hamburger Straße, HSV deservedly took the lead through Gyamerah (29th) after a promising start. After that, Braunschweig finally found their way into the game and equalized through Ihorst (44th) before the break. After the change of ends, the game initially calmed until Glatzel (68th) put the Red Shorts back in the lead from a corner. Even after a few more chances, the score was 2-1 for the Red Shorts after 90 minutes.

Real Cup Fight...

HSV were very dominant in the Eintracht Stadium from the first minute on, so much so that after the first quarter of an hour, they achieved more than 80 percent of the possession. In front of the opponent's goal, however, the Red shorts were only able to capitalize on a limited chances, as the home side defended deep and made the spaces very tight. Gyamerah was the only player to threaten the Braunschweig goal, but initially couldn't beat keeper Fejzic. Shortly after, Gyamerah again appeared in front of Fejzic, after a solo run, he rounded the keeper and slotted HSV into the lead. At the same time, however, the conceded goal gave Eintracht a wake up call, becoming more offensive and came closer to the equalizer slowly but surely. Just one minute before the final whistle, Braunschweig actually managed to tie the game at 1-1. Curious: Ihorst's goal came as a result of a quick throw-in with a second ball still on the field. However, referee Welz allowed the game to continue, so that it went into the half-time break with the score at 1-1.

... but, a happy ending for HSV

After the change of ends, the game went back and forth for a long time. Both teams were looking for the way forward, but finding this difficult. This resulted in a number of goalmouth scares on both sides, but the goalkeepers did not have to intervene for the most part, as there was a lack of accuracy in the finish - until the 68th minute, when Glatzel was in the right place at the right time and pushed the ball over the line after a Leibold corner to regain the HSV lead. This goal to make it 2-1 sent the Red Shorts on the road to victory, as they then once again dominated the game, with Glatzel, Jatta and Kaufmann creating further good attacking chances, and in the end deserved to win 2-1 against Braunschweig. This brings HSV after a very intense Pokalfight in a real cup atmosphere into the Second Round of the DFB Cup, which will be held in October.
