When the last desperate HSV attack expired on Monday night, and referee Deniz Aytekin interrupted the match after a six-minute break, many tears flowed in the sold-out Volkspark Stadium. Coach Tim Walter, who himself had glassy eyes, tried to offer comfort in these difficult moments for him and his players. Substitute goalkeeper Tom Mickel, the team’s good soul, and striker Bakery Jatta were crying on the substitutes’ bench as the coach sat down and hugged them. The three offered a picture of misery. The unofficial HSV anthem by the band Abschlach !: “I love my Hamburg a lot.”

“It hurts a lot today. And tomorrow it will also hurt a lot. But we will soon sit down again and look forward,” said midfielder Jonas Meffert, who failed in the relegation last year with Holstein Kiel. Captain Sebastian Schonlau added self-critically in view of the mixed performance in Hamburg: “We did not do what has otherwise separated us through the season today.”

HSV really gained momentum towards the end of the second division season, but probably a little too late. In the relegation, the Hanseatic League lost to Hertha BSC. image gallery

Fans give comfort to Walter-Elf

The fact that Walter-Elf received encouraging applause from their fans despite the shattered dream of promotion testified to recognition for the best HSV season since the first relegation four years and eleven days ago. With the youngest team in the second division, Hamburg has become number three after three fourth places. And: Unlike after the first three seasons in the 1st division lower house, the traditional club now has a team with prospects. A team with quality and mentality.

“I’m really proud of my team. I’m proud to be the coach here. And I’m proud of the spectators messing with it.” said Walter to the NDR. – We get up again, but at the moment there is just emptiness, said the 46-year-old combatively. While in the coming year he will make a new attempt towards the elite class with the Hamburger, Hertha will coach and HSV legend Felix Magath said goodbye to the self-proclaimed “Big City Club” after his successful rescue mission.

HSV in half one without a chance to score

In the first half, in front of 55,000 spectators, HSV could not repeat their convincing performance in Berlin. After 45 minutes, the home team did not score a significant goal. The poor defensive performance weighed even heavier than their unimaginative offensive performance, which was marked by many poor passes. The visiting captain Dedryck Boyata was able to finish off the move – 2 – 0. Marvin Plattenhardt was the scorer. Referee Aytekin did not see that the Belgian had taken Jonas Meffert out of the match with a small push as a breach of the rules.

Heuer Fernandes prevents a higher break deficit

The Berliners then showed more presence in the duels, repeatedly put the ball-leading HSV player under pressure and after winning the ball was quicker to act than the home team, who were a class better opponent both behind the scenes and from kl. first duel seemed impressed. The Walter team had goalkeeper Daniel Heuer Fernandes to thank for not even being 2-0 down at the break. The 29-year-old parried a powerful shot from Lucas Tousart brilliantly (31 ‘).

HSV better after the break, but still harmless

HSV came out of the locker room with a different body language, now seemed more determined and secured the first offensive exclamation mark after the break with a long shot from Moritz Heyer, which Oliver Christensen blocked (49 ‘). Berlin’s goalkeeper, who should have been on Hamburg’s wish list last summer, did not get much more to do in the beginning.

Although the Hanseatic League tried very hard, they did not develop any penetrating force in the attack. The defensive line now left a somewhat more stable impression. From the match, Hertha was hardly dangerous. But another set piece then made it 2-0. Plattenhardt screwed a free kick past Heuer Fernandes in the far corner (63 ‘). The goalkeeper did not cut a good figure with the standard from a position that was actually not very dangerous.

Shortly after, the keeper corrected his mistake as Stevan Jovetic had a good chance (74th) and kept his team inside the match with the save. One goal would have been enough for HSV to at least save themselves in extra time. However, the hosts, storming with the courage of desperation, found no means against the focused Hertha defense, so they eventually suffered one of the most bitter defeats in the club’s turbulent history. The yellow-red card against Tousart did not change that (90 ‘+ 6’).
