4:2 - HSV begins 2023 with a win!

Hamburger SV won its home match against Eintracht Braunschweig 4:2. After 90 spectacular minutes, the team and fans were delighted with a well-deserved three points.

HSV made a successful start to the second half of the season on Sunday (29 January). Against Eintracht Braunschweig, the Rothosen won 4:2 (2:1) in front of 56,507 spectators in the almost sold-out Volksparkstadion and thrilled the crowd with their play. Robert Glatzel (4., 49.) as well as Moritz Heyer (17.) and Ludovit Reis in injury time scored for HSV, who put away the interim Braunschweig goals (30., 81.) well and continued to play passionately forward. In the end, the home team deserved to win the game, which should have been wrapped up early on with several more good chances. The fans, however, rooted for their team until the final minute before celebrating the three points at the start of the second half of the season.

Early HSV lead ...

Kick-off in the Volksparkstadion was delayed by a few minutes as Braunschweig supporters set off fireworks in the visitors' block. And the Rothosen did the same - figuratively speaking - on the pitch, because already in the third minute the Eintracht penalty area was ablaze. Reis had driven the ball through the midfield and set up Muheim on the left, who crossed accurately to the incoming Glatzel - direct shot, goal, 1:0. A dream start for the Red Shorts!

They remained the dominant team and even scored the second goal after a quarter of an hour, although Glatzel had pushed goalkeeper Fejzic a little too much when Königsdörffer scored. But the Hamburg team did not let this discourage them and added the 2:0 in the 17th minute with a Heyer header after a wonderful Dompé cross. It was the well-deserved reward for a very committed and, above all, playfully convincing opening phase, in which HSV was overwhelmingly superior and created numerous good chances. However, the next goal - albeit out of nowhere - came from Braunschweig, where Kaufmann scored the first goal of the game from around 20 metres after half an hour to make it 1:2. With this goal behind them, the visitors now had more control over the game and were able to keep the game even until the half-time whistle, so that they went into the break with a 2-1 lead.

... and a well-deserved home victory

After the change of ends, the Rothosen were as alert as they had been at the beginning of the match and immediately added to the scoreboard. Dompé's inimitable solo on the left wing was just stopped by the Eintracht backline, but the rebound was used by top scorer Glatzel to make it 3:1 (49). This was the beginning of a really wild phase, because in the following quarter of an hour, both teams pushed the offensive pedal extremely hard.

Both teams created two or three top-class chances each, with HSV keeper Heuer Fernandes having to use all his skills for the first time and Jatta on the other side narrowly missing the 4:1. The biggest and most curious scoring chances, however, came from Glatzel, who hit the crossbar in the 68th minute with a crazy hacked finish and four minutes before the end chased the ball over the empty goal from close range. However, the lack of this multitude of great opportunities was almost avenged, because Wiebe had scored the 2:3 goal for Eintracht out of the thick of things, but in the end the Walter men were rewarded for their great game and added the icing on the cake in injury time: substitute Benes perfectly initiated the final counterattack, which Reis completed with an inimitable solo across half the field to make it 4:2 and thus a highly deserved home victory. And the rest was great jubilation - on the field and in the stands, where more than 56,000 spectators created an incredible atmosphere and a Volksparkstadion experience deluxe.
