Hamburger didn't impressed with their performances in this campaign but they can be satisfied with results since currently are at 9th position at the table. They will now welcome Augsburg in 17th round of German Bundesliga. Previous season they ended at 16th position and managed to avoid relegation in play offs. In comparison to a previous season they are now at decent place in safe zone, and for sure will give their best here in front of their fans to achieve positive outcome and retain their position. They got a draw in previous round against Wolfsburg on the road while before that suffered defeat at home against Mainz and now must try to win here and recoup that negative results. They were also eliminated from Cup in 1/32 finals by lower ranked Jena. Their main target for this season is to keep their position in safe zone and so far they are doing fine job. Hamburger suffered only one defeat in last five rounds in Bundesliga and now will try to overcome Augsburg at home with strong support of their fans. Midfielders Albin Ekdal and Gojko Kacar will miss this match due to injuries while appearance of defender Cleber is in doubt due to a minor injury.
Augsburg on the other hand managed to improve their form and get out from relegation zone, they are currently at 13th position at the table with two points more than teams in red zone, they were eliminated from Cup most recently in their last match against Dortmund, while before that celebrated two times and got one draw in league. Augsburg also managed to achieve great success in Europe and reach Europa league knockout stage. They had a slow start of this campaign but they showed some improving of their shape and before that defeat against Dortmund, for the first time in this season were undefeated in four consecutive matches. Augsburg has positive record in duels against HSV, they celebrated three times and suffered two defeats in their last two duels. Augsburg will for sure give their best to earn all three points here and continue with good results in league, they seems much more confident now and for sure are able to achieve positive result here. As for absent players, forward Shawn Parker, defender Jan-Ingwer Callsen-Bracker and attacking midfielder will stay out of action due to injuries, while defensive midfielder Dominik Kohr is out due to a suspension.
Hamburger showed decent performances in this season and so far are satisfied with results, now will for sure go for a victory here in front of their fans, while Augsburg finally improved their form after very slow start of this campaign and they will now give their best to continue with good results, both sides will for sure go for a victory here and I expect open match with plenty of chances and over 2.5 goals to be scored.
