3:2 - HSV wins northern duel in Kiel

The Red Shorts make it unnecessarily exciting, but win a crazy game against Holstein Kiel in the end with goals from Glatzel, Heyer and Reis with 3-2.

Hamburger SV won their matchday 8 away game against Holstein Kiel 3:2 (1:0) on Friday evening (9 September). In front of 15,034 spectators in the sold-out Holstein Stadium, Kiel started the game much better, but HSV improved, took the lead through Robert Glatzel (39th) and added twice more after half-time: First Moritz Heyer scored to make it 2:0 (69.), then Ludovit Reis supposedly made everything clear with his 3:0 (85.). The home side came within 2:3 in injury time through a Heyer own goal and a goal by Fin Bartels, but in the end it was a narrow but deserved away win for Hamburg, who thus won their ninth away game in a row, both for the season and for the competition.

Flattering HSV lead ...

HSV coach Tim Walter sent in the same eleven that had won 1-0 against Karlsruher SC last weekend, after they had shown a clear improvement in performance over the course of the match. And that was also necessary on this Friday evening, because Kiel dominated the opening phase and hardly allowed Hamburg to develop in the first minutes. The pressure from the home side was too great, as they attacked hard at the start and won the ball quickly to score a number of good goals.

Again and again, Heuer Fernandes had to show all his skills to prevent an early deficit, and here and there the Holsteiners lacked a few centimetres of precision to take the lead. After 20 minutes, the statistics showed 7:0 shots on goal in favour of Kiel, who would have deserved the lead at this stage, before Walter's team got into the game a little better, first allowing less defensively and then also showing themselves offensively after half an hour of play. And how: After Dompé's cross, Jatta had a header, but Kiel's centre-back Erras just managed to scramble his header off the line, but was then also powerless in the 39th minute. Again it was Dompé who had crossed from the left - and this time found Glatzel. He beat Erras in an aerial duel and scored with his head to give HSV a flattering lead, which was due not only to the co-production of Dompé and Glatzel, but also to keeper Heuer Fernandes.

... but deserved winner in the end

After the change of ends, the Kiel sturgeons again started the game with a lot of force, but this time HSV was also wide awake from the start. Defensively, Schonlau & Co. stood firm and hardly allowed anything to go wrong, but basically the Hamburg team kept the game away from their own goal with a much more physical style of play - and up front they did it again with brains. After a sharp corner by substitute Benes, Heyer headed the ball into the net for 2:0.

The Rothosen had achieved the result with which they had won every away game so far this season. But the team could not rest on its laurels, as Kiel continued to try everything to score the goal they so richly deserved in the early stages of the game. But with will, team spirit and the once again very loud support of the travelling fans, the Walter men kept a tight rein at the back and put the lid on the game in front: Once again birthday boy Benes, who gave himself a present for the second time this evening, scored the goal, which Reis scored in a fantastic way by letting three Kiel players get by and then welding the ball in five minutes before the end to make it 3:0. It was the icing on the cake of a - as already described at the beginning - once again clear improvement in performance with which HSV deserved this away victory. The win was dampened twice in injury time when Kiel scored twice more through a Heyer own goal and a David slip-up, but in the end they brought home the three points.
