Expert analysis Hamburger SV
The home side in the traditional clash between Hamburger SV and Hertha Berlin played in the DFB Cup on Sunday. Tim Walter’s team won 4-3 after the extra time at Rot-Weiss Essen, a third league club. Exactly one week earlier, HSV experienced a 2-2 at Karlsruher SC, which also took four points in the first two matchdays. This ended a Hamburger SV streak of a cross-season total of four wins in the regular campaigns of the 2nd Bundesliga.
Moreover, the Hanseatic team won five of their seven championship matches from late April to late July. After a 4-3 in the derby against St. Pauli on 21 April, HSV first recorded a 2-3 in Magdeburg and a 2-2 against Paderborn 07. Then, Hamburger SV beat two relegated teams, Jahn Regensburg (5-1) plus Sandhausen (1-0) and, in between, at the Volksparkstadion Greuther Fürth (2-1).
However, the loss of points in Magdeburg and against Paderborn probably costed the second place and thus the direct promotion to the Bundesliga. Therefore, HSV faced VfB Stuttgart in the relegation. Walter’s team lost with 0-3 away as well as 1-3 at home.
Almost two months later, Hamburger SV started the 2nd Bundesliga with a 5-3 against another title candidate, Schalke 04, on 28 July. Before last year’s third-placed team squandered two points in Karlsruhe after the regular time, they decided the opener against the Gelsenkirchen-based side in their favour after the 90th minute.
Expert analysis Hertha Berlin
Hertha Berlin celebrated a 5-0 at Carl Zeiss Jena in the DFB Cup on Saturday. Pal Dardai’s team played against a club from the fourth-tier Regionalliga Nordost, but it represented a vital victory in terms of self-confidence. Because: The Old Lady suffered, with a 0-1 home loss against Wehen Wiesbaden, who were promoted from the 3rd division, on 4 August, its fourth defeat in six appearances.
The first exception, a 2-1 win against the Belgian side RWDM, which was promoted from the First Division, came between a 2-4 against the Swiss champions Young Boys Bern and a 0-1 against the Belgian champions Antwerp FC. The dress rehearsal against another Jupiler Pro League team, Standard Liege, ended in a 1-1. Eight days later, on 29 July, Hertha BSC lost 0-1 at Fortuna Düsseldorf on the first matchday in the 2nd Bundesliga 2023/2024.
