After 2: 1 (2: 1) against Hannover 96, HSV climbed to second place in the table at least until Sunday afternoon and thus has at least the relegation close in mind. A relaxation from striker Robert Glatzel makes Rothosen dream of the Bundesliga.

It took a while before they disappeared into the catacombs because this atmosphere had to be absorbed first.

Of course, it is not that far yet. But HSV nurtured the hope that it could actually succeed in the fourth year in the second division. After the successes against KSC (3: 0), in Regensburg (4: 2) and Ingolstadt (4: 0) it was the fourth three in a row. The reward: HSV passed Darmstadt and Bremen in second place in the first place! A draw in Aue on Sunday is enough for Werder to overtake them again. But the pressure is now on Bremen.

HSV striker Glatzel after the victory: “Incredible!”

“It’s nice to see everything go in football,” HSV captain Sebastian Schonlau said after the final whistle. “You can not predict anything, that’s why we love this sport.” Insanity. The fans pushed us to victory! “

This began with 90 gripping minutes, which affected everyone right up to the last. It was also due to the fact that the guests in no way hid, but instead sold them expensively. HSV could thank their goalkeeper for not getting behind early. First, Heuer deflected Fernandes Weydandt’s shot to the crossbar (4 ‘), then he held the nerve against the 96’ who stormed towards him (12 ‘).

Glatzel gave HSV the lead with a thrill

But it’s football: A moment ago HSV almost came back, but seconds later they took the lead. Jatta’s pass was used by Glatzel for 1-0 (13 ‘).

What works so well needs to be repeated, HSV professionals believed. Seven minutes after the opening goal, Glatzel was again served by Jatta and made it 2-0 – his 21st goal of the season, making him number two in the league behind Schalke’s Simon Terodde.

Church abbreviated to Hanover 96

At least now it was clear to the fans that HSV could not be stopped. Thinking: While celebrating the 2-0 shortened Hannovers Kerk with a wonderful left-footed shot (21st).

After that, the sovereignty of the Hamburg game was over. 96 got a new interest, but some HSV professionals felt the importance of the task more and more with each passing minute. After Reis hit the post (27 ‘), Hannover had a chance to equalize, but Weydandt and Beier slipped past (32’).

HSV did not manage to close the bag earlier

The second half was about excitement and counting down the minutes. Reis (56 ‘), Jatta (66’), Glatzel (71 ‘), Kaufmann (76’) and above all Alidou, who missed the shot from a few meters away (88 ‘), missed putting lids on the match. So the latent feeling of great danger remained. At 15.23 it gave way to a primal war from the ranks.
