Huge chance!

Bello is sent away down the left and nobody's catching him. The American plays a low ball into the box to Lasme, who tries to finish from the left og goal but again finds Heuer Fernandes in his way.

Been a while

Benes's goal is his first since March 2021 for Augsburg away at Hertha in the Bundesliga. He tries to get a second but it's straight at Kapino.

Benes makes them pay!

Pretty much straight up the other end, HSV pour forward. Benes has options left and right but decides to go himself from left of centre, curling one on his left foot across Kapino and into the far top corner.

Königsdörffer tries his luck

It's bending in but Kapino is equal to it and parries to safety.

Far better

Hamburg dominated the shot count before the break by 9-2. Now it's 5-3 in Bielefeld's favour just 10 minutes into this half.

Clear yellow

Bielefeld on the break through Klos. Okugawa is racing up the middle but pulled back by Heyer. Referee Fritz sees it but waves advantage before calling the HSV defender over to show him a card.

Bielefeld straight on the attack as Klos tries to pick out Okugawa, but the ball just evades the Japan international.

Doesn't bode well

Bielefeld find themselves 1-0 down at half-time for the fourth game in a row. The last time they turned around a deficit after 45 minutes was in January 2019 away at Dresden (4-3 after 3-1). HSV have won their last seven league games when leading at the break. It's 33 games unbeaten with a half-time advantage (W23, D10).

Half-time

Jeers ring out from the home support as the half-time whistle goes. They've struggled to get into this one. Admittedly, they have limited HSV to little in terms of clear-cut chances but one telling mistake has allowed the visitors to claim the advantage.

Glatzel denied

On the stroke of half-time, Hamburg pour forward again. They stand off Kittel and allow him to play the ball left to Glatzel. The angle is good for his stronger right foot but he puts it too close to Kapino.
43'

Off the bar!

Inches away from a second for HSV as a corner isn't cleared and lands at the feet of Vuskovic on the edge of the area. Sweet hit from the centre-back, Kapino is beaten, but his crossbar comes to his rescue.
40'

Too far for Klos

Hack has been the liveliest for Bielefeld and digs out a cross from the left looking for Klos, but it's too high even for the big man.

Königsdörffer denied!

Confidence is really flowing in this HSV team now. Glatzel comes deep to pick up the ball. Spins and plays in Königsdörffer, but he's denied under pressure by Kapino.

Finally a new name

Königsdörffer ends Glatzel's record of being HSV's only goalscorer this season. It's the youngster's first league goal for the club following his summer move from Dresden.

Königsdörffer punishes Bielefeld!

Calamity for the hosts as Hüsing gives away possession after a mix-up with his goalkeeper. One touch from Kittel on the left of the box to pick out Königsdörffer completely free to the right of the penalty spot and he makes no mistake past Kapino.

It's over 30 degrees in Bielefeld today so we'll have a one-minute break for drinks and a quick tactical discussion.

Danger from 18 yards

Quick passing from HSV sees three players presented with a chance at a shot but none get one away. Königsdörffer then goes down under a challenge from Okugawa in the box, but referee Fritz waves play on as Bielefeld go up the other end but are halted by an offside flag.

Hacked

First attacking chance of note for the hosts as Hack tries to spin Heyer on the left of the box and is tripped. His free-kick is curled towards the far post but evades all blue shirts on its way through.

Stark difference

You can tell one team is struggling for confidence this season and one is pushing for promotion.

Teasing cross from the right as HSV continue to push forward - goalkeeper Heuer Fernandes is even inside the centre circle - but this ball is just behind Glatzel lurking in the middle.

First move

The first attack of the game comes from the visitors as Glatzel flicks a ball around the corner for Königsdörffer up the right. The summer signing crosses looking for white shirts in the box, but it's cut out.

Teams are out

Bielefeld captain Fabian Klos gives a lengthy pre-match pep talk to the team as they gather in a circle before kick-off. Can they get on the board today?

Sold out

By no means a rare occurrence in Bundesliga 2, but this game is a sell-out, including around 3-4,000 travelling HSV fans, as the SchüoArena rises to its collective feet in song before the teams emerge.

HSV’s ball-playing defenders

Hamburg top the division for possession with an average of 63 per cent – Bielefeld are 12th with just 48 per cent – and it all starts at the back for Die Rothosen, where captain Sebastian Schonlau has completed 94 per cent of his passes and central defensive partner Mario Vuskovic comes in even better at 96 per cent. They are the top two in the league for completion rate out of all players who have made at least 75 passes.

Division’s best tackler

Although Bielefeld have conceded seven times, their new centre-back from Heidenheim – Oliver Hüsing – has proven he’s one of the most difficult defenders to get past in Bundesliga 2, winning 42 out of his 52 challenges. His 81 per cent success rate is the best of all players in the division.

Tight in all areas

HSV have conceded just once over the first three matchdays, compared to five at the same stage last season. It means they’ve amassed six points from scoring just three goals. They had previously always netted at least six times over the first three games of a Bundesliga 2 campaign. And the stats show they could have and probably should have scored more, with an xG value of 5.1.

Reliable Robert

Robert Glatzel has scored all three Hamburg goals this season, placing him top of the Bundesliga 2 scoring chart alongside Paderborn’s Felix Platte. He’s the only player in the division to have accounted for 100 per cent of his team’s goals. The striker has netted an impressive 19 times in his last 21 Bundesliga 2 outings. However, he has never scored or win against Bielefeld.
camera-photo

Decent recent record

Arminia are, however, unbeaten in their last three encounters with HSV. Those came in this division across 2019 and 2020, with a 2-0 win and 1-1 draw at home, plus a 0-0 draw in Hamburg. Fabian Klos was the last Bielefeld player to score in this fixture in the 1-1 draw in October 2019.

Never lost opening four

This is the third time Bielefeld have started a Bundesliga 2 campaign without a point after three games (after 1987/88 and 2010/11). On each previous occasion they were relegated by finishing bottom. However, they picked up their first points on Matchday 4 each time. In 1987 they drew 0-0 with Rot-Weiss Essen, and it was a 1-0 win over Ingolstadt in 2010. The class of 2022 will want to avoid making unwanted history today.

Milestone for Arminia

This is the club's 750th game in Bundesliga 2. They are the 12th club to reach that milestone.

HSV coach Tim Walter:

"It's about force and energy in Bielefeld. That's the only way you can get a result there. It'll be tough, even if Arminia haven't won a point in their first three league games. That have lots of individual quality."

Bielefeld coach Uli Forte

"HSV have had a better start than us - we can say that. We hope we can take advantage of their not so good periods at the weekend. In terms of tactics, HSV like to take the game in their hands. That suits us."

Watch last time out: HSV 1-0 Heidenheim

Hamburg bounced back from a surprise defeat at home to Rostock by edging Heidenheim at the Volksparkstadion thanks to Robert Glatzel's first-half goal. It leaves last year's third-placed team on six points after three games and keeps them up with the early pace-setters.

Watch last time out: Rostock 1-2 Bielefeld

Arminia's return to the second division continued in disappointing fashion as they slipped to a third defeat in as many games with a late loss at Hansa Rostock, leaving the relegated Bundesliga club without a point and second from bottom, only ahead of Braunschweig on goal difference.
