Hamburger SV vs Dynamo Dresden
Date: Monday, 11 February 2019
Kick-off @ 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Volksparkstadion (Hamburg).
The title race is on and Hamburger will be desperate to bag three points at home against a team like Dynamo Dresden, with both Koln and St. Pauli chasing from inside the 3-point gap.
There will be no short of confidence with the hosts to do so, as they are coming on the back of a 1-0 win in DFB Pokal fixture against Bundesliga outfit Nurnberg.
Dynamo Dresden are struggling badly this season and they have no chance to fight for a place in the promotion play-off zone. Rather, their main objective in the second half of the season is to stay as far as possible from the relegation waters.
Sitting at 11th on the log, Dresden have a comfortable 9-point cushion over bottom three. However, this could change with a couple of bad results.
Hamburger SV vs Dynamo Dresden Head-to-head
HSV met Dynamo Dresden for the first time in a competitive fixture early this season. Hwang Hee-Chan scored the only goal of the match, the final score line should have been much comfortable as Hannes Wolf completely dominated the proceedings.
Hamburger SV vs Dynamo Dresden Prediction
It is hard to look past anything other than a home win in this contest, especially when Hamburg are out of jet lag with back to back home wins since the restart after winter break. Moreover, they are unbeaten at this stadium since September 2018.
Dynamo Dresden are a shadow of what they used to be in the previous season, and they had suffered some heavy defeats against teams sitting at the top half of the table this term. Furthermore, they are incapable of holding on to the ball for larger periods, thus they are hardly any match for the team from Hamburg. It will be also worth to note that Dresden managed to win just once in their last 6 away games in the league.
