Hamburger will be looking to build on back-to-back wins in a bid to move a step closer to Bundesliga survival when they welcome fellow relegation battlers Freiburg on Friday.
Bruno Labbadia was appointed head coach 3 weeks ago, but Hamburg lost 1-0 away to Werder Bremen in his first game at the helm. However, HSV beat Augsburg in their next encounter and followed that up with a win in Mainz. So self-confidence is starting to return to the players.
On home soil HSV have collected 19 of their 31 points this season.
And while Hamburg have risen to the challenge of avoiding the drop recently, Freiburg have crumbled. This will be the south-western club’s 3rd successive ‘6-pointer’ against a direct relegation rival, but they come into the game having taken just one of the points available following a draw with Stuttgart and a lost at home to Paderborn.
In fact, Freiburg have only picked up 4 of a possible 18 points against their fellow bottom 5 incumbents.
Hamburger to Win vs Fraiburg is our Bet of the Day. 2.20 @ bet365!
