HSV decides traditional duel for themselves

A game between two traditional clubs under floodlights in front of 35,000 spectators – the conditions for the game between 1. FC Nürnberg and Hamburger SV were ready for the premier league. In the end, the guests prevail.

Hamburger SV won the traditional duel with 1. FC Nuremberg and initially played their way into the relegation zone of the 2nd Bundesliga. The North Germans won the atmospheric floodlight game at the “Club” in the evening 2-0 (1-0) and gave the Franconians their third defeat of the season. Mario Vuskovic (37th) gave the guests the lead in the north-south summit. Robert Glatzel (90+2) and Ludovit Reis pushed the ball over the line in added time.

35,713 spectators made for a first-league atmosphere and saw a game with a lot of fights and many interruptions. Referee Felix Zwayer made the HSV bench rage when he didn’t decide on a penalty after a hard challenge from Nuremberg’s Florian Hübner (21st). The guests were initially superior in terms of play, even if FCN had chances through Enrico Valentini (11th) or Mats Möller Daehli (31st). HSV acted harder and Vuskovic finally hammered the ball in.

After the break, the Franconians initially besieged the HSV penalty area. As is so often the case, the degrees lacked the ultimate consequence to seriously distress the guests. Nuremberg’s urge phase fizzled out and Hamburg increased in injury time.
