HSV: Test against Thessaloniki: 4: 3! Hamburg comes home satisfied. – 2nd Bundesliga

Goal festival at the heat battle in Söchau!

HSV beat Aris Thessaloniki 4:3 (2:3) in the second test match of the training camp in Bad Loipersdorf at a hot 32 degrees in the shadow. On Saturday afternoon we return to Hamburg.

In the game against last year’s third party in the Greek league, the Hamburgers show two completely different faces: an ugly one before the break. A much prettier one after that.

The 1st half. “We made a lot of unnecessary mistakes, lost easy balls. No speed on the ball, sluggishly defended. We actually scored our own goals before the break,” said coach Tim Walter, rightly so.

In the 0:1 (3rd minute), first Moritz Heyer made a mistake and then the new keeper Matheo Raab, who rushed too far out of the goal. Aris striker Juan Iturbe only had to shoot into the empty goal.

After Robert Glatzel equalized (8′), Daniel Mancini used another mistake by Raab to give the Greeks a 2-1 lead (11′). An own goal by Marvin Peerman (22nd) followed to make it 2-2. Peerman then scored the lead again to make it 3:2 (38th).

Captain Sebastian Schonlau dissatisfied: “In the first half we lost a lot of the ball easily and as a team we didn’t defend very well overall. We made it a bit difficult for ourselves to control the game in the heat.”

The 2nd half. Schonlau: “After the break we were much better thanks to the guys who came in. We then played more consistently up front. We deservedly won the game.”

Robin Meißner (58th) and Xavier Amechi (59th) turned the game around with a double strike. Amaechi in particular was one of the strongest HSV players.

The Englishman, who is now struggling for a chance at the second division side after his loan spell at Bolton, picked up points. Walter: “I’m happy for Xavier that he stayed. Maybe he can do it on the fourth try.”

HSV in the first half: Raab; Heyer, Ambrosius, Schonlau, Muheim; Meffert, Bilbija, Benes; Heil, Glatzel, Kittel.

HSV in the second half: Michael; Vagnoman, Vuskovic, David, Leibold (84. Andresen); Opoku, rice, reed, amaechi (87th Megeed); Koenigsdörffer, Meissner.
