Sandhausen – Hamburger SV Prediction & Picks (12.08.2018)


Sandhausen – Hamburger SV FREE PICKS

It is almost unbelievable, but the highly favored Hamburger SV is in the second Bundesliga after the first match day as so often in recent years in the table cellar and travels on Sunday (12.08.2018) with the Red Lantern in the luggage for SV 1916 Sandhausen. The descent euphoria at the Rothosen is thus already gone and those responsible should have realized that they will not progress with glamor, but only with hard work and passion. These virtues, which the hamburgers obviously still have to internalize, have the Kurpfälzer after six years of second division membership certainly already in the genes. Especially in their own Hardtwaldstadion, the team of head coach Kenan Kocak knows how to defend themselves on a regular basis and can savor an important point against the former Bundesliga Dino this weekend. Anyway, we see good odds and recommend Sandhausen against HSV a tip on the double chances betting 1 / X, for the Bet365 calls highest odds of 1.70. A cautious use of two units seems appropriate for this tip.


The first matchday in the new season was a debacle for the SV 1916 Sandhausen. In an initially fairly balanced game, the eleven of head coach Kenan Kocak in the 55th minute of the game managed the lead, which should also be defended subsequently. The best defensive last season (33 goals conceded) but then experienced their blue miracle and goalkeeper Marcel shoes finally had three times behind them. Thus, the Kurpfälzer seamlessly connected to the miserable preparation in which followed after two defeats against FC Middlesbrough (0: 1) and TSV 1860 Munich (1: 2), still a 1-1 draw against VfB Stuttgart.

Of course you are looking forward to a game like the weekend against HSV. This will be an absolute highlight for us, for the fans and the entire region. We want to give the spectators a big fight and stand up to HSV with everything we have. ”

Midfielder Denis Linsmayer is expecting a big fight
As in recent years, the relegation is the top priority for SV Sandhausen. To achieve this goal, the staff carousel was neatly shot during the summer break. Eleven new entrants have so far faced a total of twelve departures. However, the Kocak team has not played yet and hardly improved in comparison to the last season, when the relegation was practically secured on the last match day. Hopes are therefore again in the home strength. Finally, the SVS took in the local Hardtwaldstadion almost two-thirds of all points and also let down favored teams regularly. For example, five defeats at home were conceded seven wins and five draws last season.


Fifty-five years of excellence have come to a sudden end for the Hamburg sports club in the last season. The descent was not a real surprise, but the result of years of mismanagement and at best a matter of time. As expected, the directors are now aiming for a direct resurgence, although starting difficulties are well planned. In fact, the prelude went right neat in the pants. Against Holstein Kiel, there was a tough 0-3 defeat, which was also earned in the end in the end. The eleven of head coach Christian Titz was not even worse and had some high-profile chances, in the recovery but not in approach as effective as the opponent.

That the season opener so clearly in the pants, was after the impeccable preparation but not really foreseeable. Because here the North Germans could celebrate a total of six wins in a row, whereby the opponents were partly well-known. So celebrated the retreaded and significantly rejuvenated Titz-Elf against CSKA Moscow (1: 0), Rapid Vienna (2: 1), Stoke City (2: 1) and the French runner-up AS Monaco (3: 1) successes. Important virtues such as fighting, running and passion were certainly inferior in the test matches. The HSV but would do very well to appropriate this as soon as possible. Whether the new signing of Orel Mangala (on loan from VfB Stuttgart) will remedy this situation will be seen. At least he would be a possible option for captain Aaron Hunt, who will also be against Sandhausen not be involved, and could support six Matti Steinmann in midfield, which was permanently doubled against Kiel and so rarely could put the expected impulses.
