Friendly Match


7:4 - Raining goals has HSV beat FC Nordsjaelland

Miro Muheim (8., 45.), Moritz Heyer (11.), David Kinsombi (59.), Robin Meißner (70.) and Robert Glatzel (72., 87. Pen) scored for the Rothosen in a high-scoring encounter with the Danish first division team.

Hamburger SV played a spectacular test match against FC Nordsjaelland on Thursday (11 November) behind closed doors. In the friendly match with the tenth-placed team in the Danish Superliga, the Red shorts won 7:4 (3:2). 

HSV head coach Tim Walter sent his team, depleted by the five internationals who were away (Alidou, Doyle, Reis, Suhonen, Vuskovic), into the fray in a 3-5-2 system and promptly saw the scoring open up: the Danes took a 1-0 lead as early as the 4th minute after some pinball-like groundwork by a goal from attacker Agnero. The Rothosen, however, immediately shook off this cold shower and turned the deficit into a lead within minutes. First Muheim (6th) and a short time later Heyer (11th) successfully rounded off shots on goal by Kaufmann and Wintzheimer - 2:1. But even this lead was short-lived when Nordsjaelland's attacker Coulibaly (19th) immediately punished an unclean pass by HSV keeper Johansson and therefore concluded a wild opening phase. After that, the game became increasingly flat. Only a Wintzheimer free-kick (22nd) and Agnero's shot (36th) created further half-chances before Muheim (45th) scored for the second time with his head after a fine Kinsombi cross and virtually at the interval to make it 3:2.     

Changeovers and even more goals in the second half

In the second half, Walter brought on Seifert for Schonlau, the second U19 player - fellow youngster Krahn had previously been given the starting eleven. But that was the only change for the time being, as the offensive spectacle continued. While Schjelderup (46th) failed to equalise with a lob to the far corner, which was saved by the strong Muheim on the goal line, HSV remained true to their offensive and scoring pattern: After the Danes had made a quadruple change in the 58th minute, the Hamburgers switched on the spur of the moment after winning the ball and successfully dusted off a Kaufmann shot for the third time in the person of Kinsombi (59th). For the scorer it was the last action, because Walter changed several times and brought in the young players Paschke and Andresen (both also U19) as well as top scorer Glatzel. And the Danes also scored immediately after the opponent's change, restored the connection through double goal scorer Coulibaly (64th) and shortly afterwards missed the equaliser through Adringa (66th).

In the middle of this storm and stress phase of the Danes, HSV scored the next goal with a clean counterattack via Kaufmann and Meißner (70.). Meißner had just shone as a goal scorer with a header, but less than two minutes later he became the provider of the assist, when he set up Glatzel (72.) with a fine pass. But that was not enough in this goal festival: Nagalo (79th) scored the next goal in this crazy game, before Glatzel (87th) scored a penalty to make it 7:4 and thus conclude a memorable friendly match.
