Hamburger SV vs Hansa Rostock: Pre-match Analysis & Prediction

Sunday, September 3, 2023, will bring us a meeting between the first and second teams of Bundesliga 2 – Hamburger SV vs Hansa Rostock. We analyzed both teams in detail and made a promising prediction for this match. 

Hamburger vs Hansa Rostock: What To Expect From The Teams

Both teams have had a great start to the new 2 Bundesliga season. Tim Walter’s team has won three games in the opening four matches, drawing only once in an away match against Karlsruhe (2:2). Hansa also made a great start with three wins in four matches, with only a home match against Hannover 96 failing to end in a victory, which ended in a 1-2 defeat.

Hamburger SV

‘Die Rothosen’ is at the top of the Bundesliga.2 standings. Although the team from Hamburg was expected to have a similar start, it was very confident.

If we recall Hamburg’s previous matches, it is worth mentioning their schedule, as the team played against two opponents who were members of the top division last season – Hertha (3:0) and Schalke 04 (5:3). The strong Karlsruhe managed to take away the points and bring the game to a draw (2:2).

However, Tim Walter’s team demonstrated their fighting spirit in the previous match against Hannover 96, when they managed to score the only goal in the penalty area and take away three crucial points from Lower Saxony.

Guilherme Ramos, who received a straight red card in the previous game, will miss the Hamburger vs Hansa match.

Hansa Rostock

If Hamburger could be expected to have such a strong start, no one expected Hansa to have such a strong start, probably not even their own fans. Currently, the team is in second place in Bundesliga 2, although they finished last season in 13th place.

Although Hansa’s results were partially affected by their schedule, as they had to start the new season against the unstable Nurnberg (2:0), as well as against two newcomers to the second division – Elversberg (1-2) and Osnabruck (2:1). Only a defeat to Hannover 96 prevented them from catching up or even overtaking their next opponent on points.

Hamburger SV vs Hansa Rostock: Match Prediction

Two Bundesliga.2 leaders will play at the Volksparkstadion. Both teams are capable of scoring, but they both have something to lose, so don’t expect them to play their attacking best from the first minute.
