JOB DONE FOR HAMBURG!

Hamburg climb to third, courtesy of their fourth win of the season. They're now just a point behind top two Paderborn and Darmstadt. Nuremberg, despite a valiant effort, stay 12th.

HAMBURG SEAL THE DEAL!

Surely no way back for Nuremberg now. Kittel shows his marker a few stepovers, before clipping a cross towards the far post. Glatzel and Reis contest it - it's hard to tell who gets the final touch, but HSV don't care.

HÜBNER HEADER!

Geis flots in a free-kick from the right. Hübner goes up on the edge of the six-yard box, but gets under the ball and heads over. Was that the chance?

OFF TARGET

Glatzel has space to run into as he approaches the edge of the Nuremberg area. The shot's on for him, but his attempt bounces wide. He just didn't catch it right.

ASKING BALL

Close to a second Hamburg goal as Laszlo Benes gets to the byline and sends a ball into the six-yard box. It evades everyone, though, and the chance is gone. All it needed was a touch towards goal!

NUREMBERG'S EFFORT UNREWARDED

HSV EDGING IT

It's been an evenly balanced first half that became increasingly open after a cagey start. There have been a couple of decent chances at both ends but it's Hamburg who have the lead thanks to Vuskovic's volley.

POETRY IN MOTION

Vuskovic coudn't have caught his volley any sweeter than this...

HAMBURG LEAD!

There appears to be little danger as Hamburg are forced backwards after taking a short corner. However, a deep ball to the back post from the left catches the home defence napping and it's headed back into the middle, where Vuskovic lashes in a volley from close range!

REIS BLOCKED!

Jatta sprints forward on the break and for a moment it looks like HSV will have a three-on-three situation. He's forced wide and then backwards though, eventually playing the ball across the edge of the area. It comes to Reis, who chests the ball down and shoots on the volley, but it's blocked by a covering defender.

MÖLLER DAEHLI GOES CLOSE!

The Nuremberg playmaker jinks in from the left, holding off a couple of defenders to get a shot away that whistles just wide of the far post!

MATHENIA AGAIN!

Kittel scampers down the left flank and crosses low to Dompe on the edge of the Nuremberg area. His first touch is a little heavy but he still gets a shot away that Mathenia does brilliantly to tip over the bar at full stretch!

MATHENIA WELL PLACED

Jatta causes mischief down the right as he darts into the Nuremberg box and crosses into the middle, but Mathenia is alive to the danger and clears with his foot.

The ball bounces kindly for the FCN right-back after Heuer Fernandes punched a free-kick clear. Valentini smacks a powerful drive at goal but it's straight at the visiting goalkeeper, who makes the save.

Nuremberg are maybe just edging things at present and are enjoying more possession and time in HSV's half. Still no chances to speak of at either end though.
