KIEL PULL ONE BACK!

Heyer's scored one at each end now as Kiel get their consolation goal. A harmless-looking cross from the Kiel right loops into the box and Heyer misjudges his clearance, turning it into his own net instead of hoofing it away.

SKRZYBSKI SURELY!

The forward collects a beautifully disguised pass that dissects the HSV defence. He's only got Heuer Fernandes to beat and attempts a dink over the goalkeeper, but gets it all wrong and the ball bobbles wide.

WHAT DO THE STATS KNOW, EH?

information
xGoals
The xGoals value of a club is calculated from the sum of all goal probabilities (goals and shots on goal) of that team. During a match, it’s easy to see whether the club is performing better than expected (goals > xGoals) - or maybe even higher (xGoals > goals).
According to the xG expected goals metric, Kiel should be 2-0 up in this game. Instead, they're 2-0 down...

THROWING CAUTION TO THE WIND

Kiel are having one last throw of the dice as they bid to claw their way back by bringing on two attack-minded players in Bartels and Wriedt. They've got about 20 minutes to produce something!

LEAD DOUBLED!

Kiel had been pushing for an equaliser in the his half, having had four shots on goal to HSV's one after the break, but once again the visitors have shown a ruthless streak in front of goal as Heyer rises highest to meet a corner from the right, thundering his effort in from the edge of the six-yard box.

SKRZYBSKI ON THE VOLLEY

Kiel are trying to find a way back into this game and get forward well down the left. It's crossed into the box, where Skrzybski is arriving at the back post, but his well-taken volley is blocked.

HSV IN FRONT AT THE BREAK

Kiel will be kicking themselves that not only are they not in front, but they're actually losing this game. They've been by far the better side, created more and better chances but just haven't been able to put them away. HSV grew into the game as a result and a striker a clinical as Glatzel does not need many opportunities to find the net.

AERIAL THREAT

Glatzel has now scored a league-high three headed goals this season, taking his tally to five in Bundesliga 2 in 2022/23. Eight of his last 12 goals have also been headers.

GLATZEL OPENS THE SCORING!

A goal that is brilliantly simple in its creation and simply brilliant in its execution. Dompe shows a clean pair of heels to Becker down the HSV left and crosses into the middle for the unmarked Glatzel, who heads in from 10 yards!

ARP MUST SCORE... BUT NO!

Arp charges forward, skips past a challenge and suddenly finds himself with just Heuer Fernandes to beat. He's slightly right of centre, which is perhaps why he doesn't fancy it, and chooses to pull the ball back for Reese, but his pass is way too strong and the Kiel No.11 can't control it. Arp really should have gone for goal himself there.
33'

CHANCE FOR KITTEL!

The HSV playmaker receives the ball on the edge of the Kiel area, left of centre. It bounces and sits up for him nicely, and he has a clear sight of goal but smashes his shot straight at Dähne.
32'

ERRAS CLEARS OFF THE LINE!

Dompe's trickery on the left creates some space for him to cross. Dähne comes off his line to clear but can only paw it onto the head of Jatta at the back post. He heads it goalwards but Erras is well placed to clear off the line. That's HSV's best chance so far!
31'

STORM WEATHERED?

It's been almost 10 minutes since Kiel last had a shot at goal and HSV are gradually looking more confident on the ball and getting forward more regularly.

MUHEIM WITH HSV'S FIRST SHOT

Kiel only half-clear a cross from the left into their box and it falls kindly for left-back Muheim, whose well-struck, first-time drive skids towards goal. Dähne sees it all the way though, and saves down to his left.

ARP AGAIN!

Will this be one of those games where Kiel have all the chances but end up losing 1-0 to a goal on the counter? It's shaping up to be that way as Arp goes close again, drilling a shot at goal from 10 yards but not finding a way past Heuer Fernandes!

ARP HEADS OVER

Kiel slice through HSV seemingly at ease after breaking up an attack and within seconds they're inside the Hamburg box, but Arp's header from a cross from the left sails well over.
