Much-improved under Markus Gisdol, Hamburg broke their duck at the 13th time of asking with victory in Darmstadt on Matchday 13. Although their first win of the 2016/17 campaign took the Red Shorts off the bottom of the table for the first time since Matchday 8, they remain three points adrift of outright safety - without a home win all season.
