Osnabruck vs Hamburger SV Prediction
Osnabruck survived a scare last week against Bochum on the road after the latter took the lead, two minutes after the ball started rolling. The hosts would have made the trip back home empty-handed as well, had it not been for Niklas Schmidt who made no mistake in finding the back of the net from a spot-kick in the closing stages of the first half.
Furthermore, the home side have now picked up a win just once in their past nine games. At the moment, Osnabruck are sitting eleventh on the ladder, twelve points behind Hamburger SV.
The current table-toppers also tasted success in their respective matchup and posted a 2-1 scorecard against Dresden at home. Hamburger SV have now stumbled just once this season and will be making the trip to Stadion an der Bremer Bruck on the back of an eight-match unbeaten streak too.
It is also worth mentioning that Hamburger SV have not admitted defeat in any of their past four outings in the 2. Bundesliga.
On the other hand, Osnabruck have just one win to boast of from their previous four clashes on home soil. Taking into account the solid form that Hamburger have going on, an easy win for the visiting contingent is certainly in the reckoning this week.
Additionally, the guests have been guilty of possessing a leaky defense. They have conceded as many as they have scored in each of their last four trips on the road. Meanwhile, ten of the fifteen goals that Osnabruck have netted so far have come from their clashes at home.
Considering that both teams have found the back of the net together in each of their last two meetings as well, expect neither side to make it out of the ninety minutes with a clean sheet intact.
