Hamburger SV vs Ingolstadt Predictions and Match Preview

Hamburger SV vs Ingolstadt
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 4th May 2019
Kick-off at 12.00 UK/ 13.00 CET
Venue: Volksparkstadion (Hamburg).

The dismal run that Hamburger has gone through, made sure that they lost a place in the playoff list (as of now). Though the team has posted the same number of points as Union Berlin, their inferior goal difference holds them in the fourth spot, and with nine points left to play for, the squad has to figure out a way to climb back to top-three.

It helps that their next opponent is 17th in the table, in a league of 18. Ingolstadt faces an uphill task and has to overcome a deficit of five points, with nine left to play for, and that too against Sandhausen, who has been unbeaten in the last five fixtures. It’s safe to say that morale is down for the visitors.

  • Four of the last five wins belong to Hamburger.

  • 100% of encounters at this stadium had goals at either end of the pitch.

Hamburger SV vs Ingolstadt Prediction

Hamburger has the home advantage, and they are fighting for a playoff spot, against a relegation-battler this weekend. Ingolstadt, while mathematically still has a chance, realizes their objective just might be unattainable. As such, they are low in confidence.

The hosts just need to replace Union Berlin from the third spot, and since both teams have posted the same number of points, and also due to the fact that, Berlin has a comparatively tougher fixture this match-day, Hamburger considers this tie as a ticket to take part in the postseason proceedings.

Importantly, Hamburger registered four of the last five h2h wins and holds a 100% unbeaten record at home. Expect them to take advantage of these factors, and record a win, which would help them go after promotion.

But it needs to keep in mind that Ingolstadt will give the fight of their lives, as they are facing at least a year in the lower division if they fail to get to the 15th spot by the end of the season. We can count on them to give a tough fight. Moreover, except for a single h2h clash, every other one had goals from both teams. Rely on these teams to repeat the effort.
