Hamburg SV are looking determined to earn promotion to the top-tier division in Germany. So far they have done huge work in the opening 20 rounds.

HSV are sitting in the 2nd position with 37 points, one less than the leader Arminia Bielefeld. This team also has the best goal difference in the league of +22. Commanding victories in the last two rounds against Nurnberg 4-1 and Bochum 3-1 have helped that fact a lot.

Despite high placement, Hamburg are having huge troubles in the back, conceding at least one goal per match in the last 11 appearances!

Karlsruher have opened this season in a great fashion, spending a lot of time in top 6 positions, mainly thanks to amazing win rate in October 2019.

Now, their fans would be thrilled to avoid relegation. Karlsruher have lost four games in a row and conceded nine goals.
