Let’s call the time of death on Hamburger’s playoff ambitions, shall we?
Duisburg is the team at the extreme bottom of the table, and they have already been relegated. As a final act of torture, they are pitted against one of the top-tier teams, and with the away handicap as well.

Hamburger SV vs Duisburg Prediction
Hamburger has been one of the top performers of this league the past season, and with an extra win, they would have been active in the fight for a playoff spot. Duisburg, on the other hand, is dead-last in the table and is already relegated.
Moreover, five of the last six h2h matches saw Hamburger wins, and they hold a 100% winning record if not for a single tie in 2008. Also, Duisburg was winless in 12 of their last 14 matches, and in eight of their last nine on the road. In addition, they have conceded the most number of goals in the competition and is the only one to touch the 60-goal mark in that stat.
Count on the hosts, who are going through a tough time, to take advantage of this fixture, and try to give a respectable end to their campaign.
