Jahn Regensburg vs Hamburger SV
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 24th February 2019
Kick-off at 12.30 UK/ 13.30 CET
Venue: Jahnstadion (Regensburg).
Hamburger fans have been waiting for this fixture for more than five months. Last September, in the reverse fixture, for which the current league-topper was at home, ended in utter disaster. The high-flying team was embarrassed by the visiting Regensburg contingent with a 0-5 scoreline.
As the hosts are struggling quite a bit right now, Hamburger will feel it’s the right time to exact revenge and close the long-hurting chapter behind them.
But things won’t be as easy as it was said. The toppers too have had their share of problems, and especially in regards of consistency of their offense, on the road, in the recent match-days. The fact that they have scored just four goals in the last five road trips is a bit concerning.

Jahn Regensburg vs Hamburger SV Prediction
The visitors would dearly love to put on a huge score on the board and consider they have been avenged. But their misfiring offense at the moment poses a minor problem. The team has recorded just four goals in their last five travels, and one of them was in a friendly. It’s really a pity since Regensburg is going through a terrible phase of their season.
The team was winless in six of their last nine home ties and in ten of their last fourteen overall games. Hamburger, who has lost only 4 of their last 26 matches, and just three of their last 19 on the road, will definitely hold the upper hand, though just a minor one.
On basis of these observations, backing the visitors to record a very narrow win would be the optimal choice. There’s no realistic way the tie would be a high-scoring one considering the misfiring offense of the guests, and the completely struggling home team.
