Hamburger SV will host 1st FC Kaiserslautern in the Bundesliga

In the first fight of the Bundesleague, Hamburger SV and 1st FC Kaiserslautern will be fighting for survival. The last weeks were less exhilarating for both of the teams. Especially in the case of the rapid downfall in power of Hamburger SV, it was a bit surprising, since after the takeover of the team by Thorsten Fink, it seemed as if the club got rid of and was out of the danger zone; but after four defeats in a row, they are in a relegation place.

Since six games of the Hamburger SV are waiting on a win, they now want to provide a turnaround in the game against the Kaiserslautern, but the Palatines are on the edge of a deep abyss, and are ready to grab even at the last straw and to dismiss at least Kurz and keep Balakov on board, who has no experience as a coach so far in the league. Whether this decision was the right one, seems to be rather doubtful, as FCK showed not a very good game against Freiburg.

With 17 games in a row, the Palatines are still without a victory, and this fact can already speak about itself that they have clearly lost the Siegergen. Like the Hamburger palyers, the Lauterner also felt very much weaker at home and could only get two wins. In contrast, the Hamburg team could get their points in an away game without a problem. After all, they took 16 points from 13 away games.

“We do not need to sugarcoat anything. It is all bout a 100 % relegation battle now. We know that. It is also about livelihoods. This is a great responsibility”, said Thorsten Fink on Friday before flying to Frankfurt am Main. The coach understands the situation now, and has to pay through his nose now after sorting out Castelen and Besic.

Lastly, the coach tried to inspire new courage to his players in the fight for the league with one single meeting.

Conclusion: due to the results of the recent games, you can already assume that the HSV Kaiserslautern will not lose against Lautern. Wolfsburg HSV lost because of a very unfortunate goalkeeper’s mistake, but otherwise showed morale and it will show it to the Betzenberg team as well.
