Hamburger SV vs Bayern Munich
Date: Saturday, 21st October 2017
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 19:30 CET
Venue: Volksparkstadion, Hamburg.
Bayern Munich will take on Hamburger SV at Volksparkstadion in the last game of Bundesliga Saturday action. HSV traditionally struggle against the Bavarians so they have nothing to lose ahead of the hardest game of the season.
HSV sit just above the relegation zone with 7 points collected. They are now without a victory for five games as they suffered a defeat in four out of last five matches. HSV is one of the most ineffective teams in Bundesliga with only 6 goals scored, but it is worth noting that their key attackers were sidelined due to injuries.
Hamburger SV scored only one goal in front of their own fans in the first game of the season, when they beat FC Augsburg with 1-0. Since then, the frustration for their fans continues.
The managerial change seem to have worked perfectly on Bayern Munich as they steamrolled Freiburg SC with 5-0. The two-time UEFA Champions League winner Heynckes obviously found the way to motivate his team and Bayern will be aiming to retake the first position as soon as possible.
Bayern were only beaten in Hoffenheim this season while winning twice on the road in addition to a draw with Hertha Berlin.
Hamburger SV vs Bayern Munich: Head-to-head
Bayern Munich dominate in head-to-head meetings between the two sides. Their latest meeting was concluded with the result of 8-0 in favor of the Bavarians. The last time out HSV won was back in the 2009 season, when they triumphed 1-0 on the home turf.
Hamburger SV vs Bayern Munich: Prediction
Bayern Munich will almost certainly beat HSV but it remains to be seen whether they are able to beat the handicap they were assigned. Since they are facing the tight schedule, they probably won’t push for many goals in order to stay fresh and avoid injuries.
